Video I love: Playing for Change

Once a week, I post a video I’ve seen recently that I’m loving. So here’s this week’s Video I love …

Today I have two videos I wanted to share. They are both from Playing for Change. If you haven’t seen them yet, take a look. Very inspiring. I LOVE the concept, the music, the inspiration of it all. Here’s what the website says:

“Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world.”

Jagged Little Pill

Once a week I post about something I’m loving (tv, movies, books, art, photos, romances, authors, or anything else) that I’ve seen or read about recently. So here’s this week’s For the love of …


Even after all these years, I’m still loving Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill. I listened to it while writing last week (hadn’t listened to it in a year or two). Sometimes I need silence when I work. Sometimes I like the background noise and little bits of familiar lyrics that encourage my creativity. And when I heard the creepy, stalkerish song at the end of the disc, it reminded me how much I loved this CD.

“I took off my clothes
Put on your robe
I went through your drawers
And found your cologne
I went down to the den
I found your CDs
And I played your Joni
And I shouldn’t stay long, you might be home soon
I shouldn’t stay long
Would you forgive me love
If I danced in your shower
Would you forgive me love
If I laid in your bed
Would you forgive me love
If I stay all afternoon”

I’m thinking there’s some inspiration for a short story there. I’ll have to think it over.

What about you? Anyone else still a fan of Morissette’s work? Comment or send me an email. I’d love to hear from you.
