Message for July 2nd

Monday, July 2, 2018

While browsing on YouTube, I decided to check out some music videos. They are very random because one lead to another, like a musical trail; and, the last video was an extra because I wasn’t planning on listening to another music video. So, as I watched each video and listened to the lyrics, I tried to pick up a certain message based on the feelings I got from each video.

I don’t really listen to any of these artists because I mostly listened to 80s artists. So, the following list is very random and spontaneous for me…

#1 Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd

I decided to post this music video because I felt a good message about living life. It is about being simple and enjoying the basics in life.

It is about taking your time in life and enjoying every moment because all people really need is love, God, and being satisfied with what God provides each person.

#2 Honeysuckle rose by Sarah Vaughan

The next music video that I checked out was Honeysuckle Rose because I have fond memories as a child sucking on honeysuckle flowers. I remember that I barely tasted anything, but it just reminded me of my carefree days, enjoying the simple things in life. Honeysuckles actually have a slight and light sweet taste, but it still tasted like Heaven.

Sarah Vaughan also has a good voice because this song sounds like a classic.

#3 Thank You by Dido

To me, this music video is about looking at the positive side of any situation, and Thanking God for enjoying another day on Earth as I try to make each day 'the best day of my life'.

I also like this artist's voice because it is very soulful.

#4 Moondance by Van Morrison

This music video and song reminds me of the bright and colorful lights of nightlife adventures. But it appears to be raining in the video scenes. There also seems to be an element of romance. Maybe it is about a long winding drive toward one's destination in sometimes wet and rainy days and nights. But the whole process can be a long, fun, and enjoyable adventure.

Van Morrison also has a good voice.

#5 Upside Down by Paloma Faith

I get a positive feeling and message from this song because it is upbeat. As I listen to the lyrics, I realize that Paloma Faith is singing about my life. It is also about slowing down, being carefree, and trusting God as your Personal Driver in life.

#6 Slow Like Honey by Fiona Apple

As I listen to the lyrics in this long, I realize it sounds very sexy, and she is trying to seduce listeners with her 'slow as honey' singing voice.

But, besides that, I feel that it might have to do with my life because I sometimes do things 'slow as honey' I guess because I like to take my time and think a lot about situations before I make any commitment or major decision.

#7 Pretty Wings by Maxwell

This song sounds very sexual and the singer has a good voice. But what I eventually got out of it was a feeling of eventual hope and flying free.

#8 Kind and Generous by Natalie Merchant

This last music video that I decided to watch looked interesting because I have always liked carnivals and fairs as a child. As I watch the video, it also reminded me of Cirque de Soleil and SteamPunk. But all I got from the song is to always remember to thank God for all the good things in my life.

#9 Carnival by Natalie Merchant

I wasn't planning on watching another music video but the song title, Carnival, got my attention, and it followed the previous song like a sequel, probably because it is sung by the same artist. As I watch the black and white music video, it reminded me of my favorite pastime, which involved roaming and exploring streets with my 50MM camera to take interesting street photography. I tend to be very candid and blunt in my photography because I am more into capturing current reality, even if sometimes I do it in a creative and artistic way via surreal photographs.
