For today’s Music Video Monday, I give you a song that simply makes me happy.
I had never heard of the Denmark-based band Mew until a couple of years ago, when I found them on some random iTunes playlist. I remember the person who created the list commenting that she could not listen to the song without being taken in by lead singer Jonas Bjerre’s angelic voice. My initial search about Mew yielded unimpressive results. They didn’t seem like my kind of band. They were, however, four pretty gorgeous Danish men, so I figured I would give them a chance and downloaded the recommended song, The Zookeeper’s Boy. The first time I heard this song way up loud, driving in my car, I knew exactly what the author of that playlist was talking about. There is something about Bjerre’s voice and the overall sound of the song that just soothes you.
I’m not sure how the video fits with the song, but, if you’re like me, the band members will make it an enjoyable watching experience regardless. Happy listening and watching, folks!
