The Clouds

Based on the play The Clouds by Aristophanes

From a translation by Peter Meineck

A rambunctious man tries to avoid repaying his debts by enrolling in Socrates' "Pondertorium" and studying "Wrong Logic" – a new way of arguing that always seems to defeat the truth. But this student has problems matriculating and in a riotous parody of contemporary education, everything goes horribly and hilariously wrong.

Vevo announces the release of Tove Lo's live performance of 'Sweettalk My Heart.' Crafting a raw, confessional brand of pop shaped by her love of grunge as well as the pristine sounds of her Swedish homeland, Tove Lo is an award-winning performer and Grammy-nominated songwriter. The way her 2013 single 'Habits (Stay High)' swung between joy and despair and frankly depicted drug use and sex made it a distinctive, relatable, multi-platinum hit and a fitting introduction to her uncensored style. She followed it with more uninhibited, autobiographical music: Her 2014 debut album Queen of the Clouds and 2016's Lady Wood upheld her reputation for confronting the darker side of love and relationships with thoughtful, provocative and catchy songwriting.
