‘This Is America’ …. “🎼🎼 Childish Gambino …. Official Video …. What a Message 🎼🎼 …. “!!

THIS IS AMERICA

Quite a strong message within this music video.

Indeed, have to watch it more than once! In a blunt manner, not sparing any punches, Donald Glover presents the true and crude reality of America.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned. Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

The video speaks for itself.

RedLineBOn the latest Saturday Night Live, Childish Gambino – the musical pseudonym for actor and Atlanta creator Donald Glover – released “This Is America,” a searing social critique of pop culture and the experience of being black in America today.

~DONALD GLOVER~

The actor, who has been riding high these days with both his series “Atlanta” and his role as young Lando Calrissian in the forthcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” both hosted “Saturday Night Live” and was the musical guest as his rap/R&B alter ego, ‘Childish Gambino‘.
Glover as Gambino won a Grammy this year for best traditional R&B performance for his song “Redbone” and premiered two new songs on “SNL,” titled “Saturday” and “This Is America.”

Here’s what you need to know about the music video that has many hailing Glover/Gambino as a genius:
You will need to watch it more than once
Directed by “Atlanta” director Hiro Murai, the video is pretty surreal and packed full of messages.
It’s expansive and filmed in a warehouse, which allows for a lot of action.
As much as your eye will be drawn to Glover as a shirtless Gambino, pay close attention also to what is happening in the background.

~It takes on gun violence in America~
Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video — a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.
The imagery also has sparked conversation about several other themes, including police brutality, social media habits and what people are really paying attention to in the United States.
“The fact that Childish Gambino’s ‘This is America‘ tackles police brutality, gun violence, media misdirection, and the use of African Americans as a brand shield, all while dancing in Jim Crow-style caricature, shows a transcendence or mere performance and demands attention,” one person tweeted.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

Pentatonix, the a cappella quartet, released their latest album of covers, PTX Presents: Top Pop Vol. 1 on Friday (April 13). The group has followed the premiere of the album with a new video – this time for their take on Ed Sheeran’s”Perfect”.

For “Perfect“, the well-dressed singers harmonize in various rooms of a muted old-school building as baritone Scott Hoying takes lead.

At the video’s peak, cellist Kevin Olusola’s solo leads to a ballerina pirouetting, right before the group joins in on the swoon of a chorus.

WHATEVER YOU WANT

P!NK

Another Friday discovery!

Amazing insight into P!nk’s new video for ‘Whatever You Want’ is here.

And she delivers!! 

Need to take my mind off the usual routine and sad reality we are living.

It’s Friday … a typical day for celebration and fun.

I love this woman!

P!nk has long been an open book. The high-flying pop star has never shied away from exposing who she really is to her fans and in the new Apple Music-exclusive video for her single “Whatever You Want” she takes fans all the way backstage, and into the backyard, for an intimate look at her personal life.

The clip opens with P!nk in the recording session for the song and then segues into a montage of the singer being playful backstage during tour rehearsals, some cute moments with her kids and a few stolen kisses with husband Carey Hart.

The clip is, really, an homage to their love story, featuring archival footage of his motorcross triumphs and her instantly legendary 2017 MTV VMAs speech honoring their daughter Willow.

And yes, because she’s P!nk she also includes that bit before she sang the National Anthem at this year’s Super Bowl where she spit out her cough drop, plus tons of aerial footage.

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

CHILL FACTOR

Music for the Soul

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’.

My tattoo artist, Stacy, showed this cover to me three days ago.

This song soothes my raw feelings.

It calms me, it centers me.

In the days after another mass shooting in Florida, this song comes to mind.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Jeffrey Scott Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scott Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. After a decade as a session guitarist in Los Angeles, Buckley amassed a following in the early 1990’s by playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan’s East Village, such as Sin-é, gradually focusing more on his own material.

In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine listed him at number 39 on their list of greatest singers of all time. In 1997, Buckley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to resume work on the album, to be titled My Sweetheart the Drunk, recording many four-track demos while also playing weekly solo shows at a local venue.

On May 29, 1997, while awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during a spontaneous evening swim, fully clothed, in the Mississippi River when he was caught in the wake of a passing boat; his body was found on June 4.

Jeff Buckley

Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah …

‘What About Us? …. “🌸🎼🌸  P!nk’s new Captivating, Mesmerizing Video …. The Song for The Times 🌸🎼🌸 …. “!!

WHAT ABOUT US?

I’ve heard this song playing on the radio.

It was’t until last night’s VMA Awards and today that I went searching for the video. P!nk has always had serious, impacting messages to share in her songs.

This is another example at a time when it’s most needed.

A protest song!

What About Us” is a song by American singer and songwriter Pink. It was written by P!nk, Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid, with production handled by Mac. The song was released through RCA Records on August 10, 2017, as the lead single from P!nk’s upcoming seventh studio album, Beautiful Trauma (2017).
