‘Spot light on a Song’

Happy Spring music fans!  The weeks seem to whiz by so fast these days. I suppose that’s a good thing…that I’m busy and life is full.  But that too makes me a little sad that it’s flying by so quickly.   It is a mad world.  A perfect sentiment for my ‘Spot light Song’ today.   

Gary Jules, is an American singer-songwriter, best known for his cover version of the Tears For Fears song “Mad World”, which he recorded with friend Michael Andrews for the film Donnie Darko.  The song is still played regularly in radio rotation and is part of my personal favorite songs collection.  Hauntingly beautiful.  A sentiment so seemingly simple yet too complex to wrap my head around.

The original video shows children making animated figures on a sidewalk below. Surprisingly, it’s quite beautiful. And after creating my own music video’s these past few months for my monthly song releases, it’s quite a challenging endeavor to create compelling and good visual content for 3-4 minutes. Believe me! Jules’ video particularly grabbed me. I think you will enjoy it too.  

As always….strum a little…..
