Sleepwalker- Bonnie McKee

Bonnie McKee, you know the one who writes hits for Katy Perry & Ke$ha just to name a couple. She just released her new second single after her hit “American Girl” and it’s another great song. The music video that has been released is some what of a short story. It is set during the beginning stages of a zombie apocalypse. How appropriate for her to release this close to Halloween and with “The Walking Dead” having just premiered. The video leaves us with a  cliffhanger.

The song itself sounds like a song that Ke$ha would sing. I think that is the problem with being a great songwriter, how do you set yourself apart from those that you’ve written number one hits for? In the end I think Bonnie will be okay, and the topic matter of the music video will help this song receive exposure. The lyrics are more personal than you might hear if you just watch the music video, though there are some dark themes coming from them for sure. Some have even said she is talking about her failed music career(not her writing music) the first time she tried. This is her second round of attempting to be a music artist herself.

Listen to “Sleepwalker” below and tell me your thoughts on the song and the music video.  Let me know in the comment section below.
