July 31 — LEARN TO FLY, Foo Fighters (1999)

C8F1A3B5-B23F-4B88-8099-B0AD155C7099Ordinarily for me, scrolling through click-bate on social sites is like walking past carnival barkers: “Step right up, give it a try, you won’t believe it!” To which I reply “No thanks, not interested.” But occasionally, something will grab my attention. And once in a blue moon, it’s amazing. Such is the case with a video of 1,000 young people in Italy, standing in a field, playing this song in perfect synchronicity with guitars, drums and vocals. It’s strangely moving to me, and I’m not sure why. But I think it sums up everything I love about good music: passion, emotion and energy.
