Video and music, separate or together, are powerful tools for creativity because they seem to wash your brain a bit and direct it towards whatever world the artist creates. But for the sake of music I just wanted to share the audio files not the music videos. Although I would encourage you to check out the YouTube versions of these songs to get that aspect as well. I think that experiencing a song for just its acoustic quality allows you to create your own story without someone else’s visuals getting in the way of your own imagination.
