Part 1 of a double header – Next one being Tomorrow.
Today – 7 sins – “sloth”
This one was a bit hard so I had to be a bit more creative with the choices. Here is the art of being lazy in different form.
Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song
Lets get the easy choice out of the way. The catchy song lays down a relaxing tune with a easy attitude.
“Nobody gonna tell me I can’t”
Very good choreographed video – Simply great. I do want a monkey mask now.
Daniel Powter – Bad Day
A bad day, lazy for missing lost opportunities. Sticking to a routine and not changing up (for a long time) – faking smiles and being lazy with feelings. Feeling on them but not acting on them.
Fall Out Boy – A Little Less 16 Candles, A Little More “Touch Me”.
More of an arty feel but if you focus on the lyrics not the video (although it is good) you can interpret it in different ways.
“why dont you just drop dead”
Another one where emotions lead the interpretation – I interpret it as someone with no follow through. No Positive movement.
“I dont blame you for being you” – “you know I am always late”
Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends
Having someone dead in any circumstances is bad – feeling down so down you want September to be over.
“the innocence will never last”
The videos story of the young lovers – having fun then the bloke goes to war. The middle of the video shows the argument to the breakup. (sort of he goes to war and she hated the idea)
Being lazy because you being awake is bad. Put me to sleep until it is over. Everyone feels that way at times.
As with all the other sins, in some form they are good but realising the point where it does become bad is what is needed at times. Being lazy for the sake of being lazy is ok – to a point – you need to live your life.
