This may not be music per se, but I think it is still worth it. The vid goes on for longer than the actual piece, and you’re welcome to stick around after or not, as you are so moved.
What don’t I love about this?
You will put the “win” in “winsome…lose some,” the “star” in “starting over”
Throughout the piece, Kay acknowledges the ups and downs of life and how their intertwining creates the magic and beauty that is life. It’s the confession of the last unicorn that the immortal cannot truly live.
And, of course, the haiku-esque blurred homophones that exist in spoken word poetry but get lost when the poems are committed to text (was it really “win some/lose some” or was it “winsome. Lose some”?).
This world is made out of sugar: it can crumble so easily, but don’t be afraid to stick your tongue out and taste it
I love the transience of this, the acknowledgement that life is short, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it.
Life isn’t awesome despite its sorrows but because of them.
Your voice is small but don’t ever stop singing
rAmen, sister, rAmen.
