In the official video for LA sweetheart Miguel's "Simple Things," which soundtracked the high drama of season 2 of Girls, two lone wolves in leather jackets leave a party in palm tree-lined suburbia, slinking off separately in a funk. Shot in sun-bleached black and white, we watch Miguel and the video's tousle-haired heroine wander the streets aimlessly as Miguel pours his heart out. Smoke with me, babe / Laugh with me, baby / Lay with me, babe / Because I just want the simple things, he sings into the sky, before finally finding the peace he was looking for down on the beach. It's a smoking hot Hollywood love story for this rock'n'roll-spirited ballad.
