"The Personal is Political"
African diaspora political commentary, life-love-and music.
The video captivates to no end. My boys are totally hooked, YouTube it at least once a day.
Alot of symbolism in the video. I like the lyrics. I wish I could have shut out the things people said when I was a kid. I liked it. It's probably evening there in the UK, so I'll hope you had a good day!
source: Wikipedia.According to Ian Pons Jewell, the music video, which hints at The Wizard of Oz, is about an oral Bolivian legend dating to the early 20th century, which concerns a deaf boy who fled from his abusive home and found a stray dog that accompanied him since then. After living on the streets for undefined amount of time he discovers that he has special talent of perceiving people's troubles, which he can heal by screaming, which is said to be as loud as an earthquake and a tornado. One day, he finds an old man who is being stoned by villagers while being taunted and ridiculed. By screaming, the boy resolves the situation and revives the old man's heart...check out wiki for the rest...I like the lyrics too!. yeah.. I hear you on thatI had a lovely day thanks.. hope you have also :)
It's a great song, I've been playing it at gigs for ages now, and will be buying Naughty Boy's album very soon!
