You Should Be Like This Song

Updated: Apr 11, 2018

I enjoy thinking in the abstract, which gets my creative juices flowing and can lead to helpful mental break-throughs. I was listening to "Tadow" by Fkj & Masego and I realized that the song offered a valuable lesson.

This song requires and demonstrates discipline. It simply could not be without consistency and practice. The music is undeniably versatile, which allows the song to enjoyably progress for over eight minutes. The balance of order and creativity is refreshing. Lastly, there is clearly a common vision. The various instruments and vocal musings work together to display that the whole is the greater than the sum of its parts.

Discipline, Consistency, Versatility, Vision, and Cohesiveness - you should be more like this song, and so should I.
