The video for Nick Lowe's mellow, bittersweet "House For Sale" is cut from lovely black-and-white footage shot in Oklahoma. "I was walking along the street and saw a sign saying 'house for sale,'" Lowe says of the song. "You see those three simple words all the time. And I thought, 'I wonder if anyone's ever written a song called 'House For Sale.'' It's so simple, and yet it's got a great scope for a little song about why someone would sell their house."
