Music posts! AHHH! Now that it’s summer, and since summer courses aren’t as intense as full year courses, I seem to have more than a decent amount of time to think about things, other than school. And to be honest, it’s great. Although sometimes it can be a problem , because I’m a girl, and we tend to uhm, what’s that called? over think things…..yeaahh.. OH WELL. I absolutely love going on YouTube and finding artists on there, there’s so much talent out there – pure, raw, fresh, real – not completely auto-tuned and over processed, TALENT.
A specific artist’s song sparked the interest of writing this post, and he goes by the name of Corey Gray. I discovered his music quite recently, I believe at the beginning of 2012, he did a collab with another YouTube artist that I had been following, and I was astonished. As time went on, my interest in him diminished, not because I thought he wasn’t good, it just somehow diminished. Then a couple days ago, I re-visted his channel to see what was new because I had remembered seeing on Facebook that he had a new video released(a music video for his original song Where We’re Going). My goodness – I’m in love. Watching the video was so ’emotional’ — it brought so many emotions, and flashbacks and it was just mind blowing. I have been watching it nonstop for the longest time now. I can’t say I have felt such a connection with a song+video in a LONG time. There is so much passion in that video, and his voice, his soft, soft and gentle voice that I cannot get out of my head. I couldn’t even tell you all the emotions it brought — extremes from happiness, relief, comfort and ease, sadness, a rush of excitement, grace, a sense of freedom and adventure, to a strong passion for life. The part where they jump into the pool, it just made me want to SOAR and fly- that might sound ridiculous, but like I said, this song just really hits me. The video is quite simple when you think about it, but simplicity brings realness – and he is BEAUTIFUL, and I think that the girl in the video Karlee Rigby, and him have great chemistry in this video. It really makes you want something like that. I never really had considered myself to be a ‘hopeless romantic’ — but sometimes, times like these, when I see these things, I can be one. Sometimes I wish certain events in my life could be in a music video- heck I wish I could be in that video. Be sure to check out the other covers he has on his channel, I’m certain you’ll fall in love. =)
