Music Video Monday!: Let's Have a Snow Day

“Half of my life, I’ve been watching. Half of my life, I’ve been waking up.”

It’s one of the most beautiful songs The Walkmen have ever released and the video is visually breathtaking as well. When you watch, you can almost feel the snowflakes falling softly upon your shoulders as you walk along the chilly river. It’s days like these (80* in Jacksonville today) that I miss the cold and the snow, especially the first snow of the year. It’s fresh, unblemished and picturesque.  I always loved looking out the window, warm hot chocolate in hand, as the white flakes danced through the air like feathers quickly covering the frozen ground. Of course the winter has a harsh bite to it, but those peaceful, quiet moments alone with my thoughts somehow more than made up for the bone chilling bite. Today’s MVM is called “While I Shovel The Snow”. The track comes from the hugely underrated 2010 album Lisbon and I hope it puts you in the same wintry mood that it does me. Have a great Monday and remember to always live your soundtrack out loud.
