Louise Brooks inspired song, "Hopeless"

Here are two version of the Louise Brooks inspired song, "Hopeless." The first is a video (by Stuart Pound) to a recording by the UK band Evangelista. The song dates from the 1990's, and is a tribute to Louise Brooks. The starting point for "Hopeless" is a song of the same title recorded by Evangelista. The song is about an impossible love for Louise Brooks, impossible because she died in 1984.

The video was shot at the Seven Stars pub in Bristol, England on a Sunday afternoon, June 22, 2008.
Sound by Alfie Kingston. Long live Lulu!
