You guys and gals ready? It’s high time for me to kick off my Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time (in no particular order, posts are just numbered from 30 to 1). I decided to start this column on the 2nd of March due to the fact that March is a 31 day month.
OK Go is a band known for going all out with their music videos (expect at least 2 or 3 of their songs here on this majestic list), and “This Too Shall Pass” has over 39 million views on YouTube, not including all those lyric videos that have at least 500 thousand views each.
The song is really catchy and is one of those that you can’t help but bob your head to the beat. If you listen closely, you’ll hear a trumpet in the song, and in fact, I’ve began to see a trend that songs that have a trumpet in them tend to please my ears a lot more. I’ll expand on this later. You’ll see for yourself, as well.
The music video for “This Too Shall Pass” is insane; it involves a Rube Goldberg machine and lots and lots of colors. In the wise words of one of my favorite artists, Kanye West, “That shit cray.” You’ll say something along those lines, too, once you’ve laid your peepers on this insane production.
