In a moving ode to love's most progressive advocate, San Francisco, one musician celebrates both the city and its profound residents.

Singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson released a new hit single, "Modern Love" in June, celebrating real love in all forms and the things that technology cannot replace.


On his website, Nathanson stated, "I live in San Francisco. And I LOVE this city. I thought the Modern Love video should celebrate that."

The idea for the simple yet heartwarming music video began when Nathanson polled Facebook users for things that technology (modern love) can't replace. Locals who responded were then asked to participate in the video, which spans from Golden Gate Park to the Mission.

The result is a stunning ballad to San Francisco and to love's simple joys.
