Okay! Welcome to April and the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. You can read more details about the challenge here. For the letter A and the first day of the challenge, I’ve chosen a pretty uplifting song. Afterlife by Ingrid Michaelson is fun and upbeat, but I love the message of it the most.
We all, we all, we’re gonna be alright
We got the fight in us
We all, we all, we’re gonna live tonight
Like there’s no tomorrow ’cause we’re the afterlife
She (and her directors I would assume) have done a great job with this particular music video and show people facing their “biggest fears” with a little help from Ingrid herself, as well as the camera crew and some other trained professionals. Staged or not, both the song and the video made me want to get up and join her little party. I really felt like it sent a message about not being afraid and living each moment to the fullest. If you’re interested in the full set of lyrics to the song, you can read them right over here. What did you think of the song? Did it make you want to shake your groove thing, or was it not really your thing at all?
