The video of this Bic Runga composition is reviewed by academic Matthew Bannister in a fashion worthy of Pseud's Corner in the satirical Private Eye magazine.
Writing in Many Voices: Music and National Identity in Aotearoa/New Zealand, he says it is "locally located (in Cuba Street Mall, Wellington), but the central conceit of the video is that Runga is a ghost—invisible and immaterial. Ordinary people and objects pass through her though there is a subtext that the emotional connections make things real. Runga, while being of New Zealand, is not of it—rather, she is a performer, a star, visible to all yet also removed and distant; insular, communicating emotion and intimacy through her medium rather than directly".
"Something Good" is totally different from the Utah Saints song of the same name released 10 years earlier, and the video matches the Kiwi golden girl's enchanting melody to a tee.
The song runs to 3 minutes 17 seconds, and in 2003, the video received the Best Solo Video award from the Auckland 24 hour music station Juice TV.
