Music ♪♫ | Hozier

Hello, it's not Monday anymore but I just finished downloading some new songs onto my phone so I can be a lot happier on the bus tomorrow morning and I thought I would include a particular song in a post for many different reasons. The first reason is that it is a great song, the song I am talking about is Take Me To Church by Hozier, it is truly a brilliant track. Fun fact: his mother actually did the artwork for his album cover which you can see below.

I heard Take Me To Church first when I saw his Grammy performance with Annie Lennox and it has been stuck in my head since. You can see that performance below. The guy has seriously awesome hair, just throwing that out there.

So, after hearing it, I did a little Google search and honestly the more I have found out about this particular song the more strongly I feel about it, I think the lyrics are very powerful and can resonate with everyone. Hozier wrote this song after breaking up with his girlfriend, so on a personal level it is about heterosexual love (if that's what you want to call it) but the official video portrays a gay couple and a violent response from the rest of society. Love is love, is what I take to be the message of this song, but here is the official video and make what you will of it, I would love to know your opinion in the comments. 

Finally, I came across this amazing Russian ballet dancer who is really cool and covered in tattoos and patches of sunlight while performing the most amazing ballet routine to this song. Plus, he can leap and jump alarmingly high, so check that out below too, it's really something.

Thank you for reading, I hope you liked at least one of the videos I included in this post. I honestly get sick of reading and hearing people talk about how the Bible and God and religion deems homosexuality as wrong. I'm not a Christian, I do believe in God and I don't particularly think my opinion matters but I am going to share it with you anyway. The Bible is a manuscript from thousands of years ago, humans have evolved since then, the world has evolved since then, so stop living in the past. All any religion teaches, as far as I know, is to love and respect others, that is the fundamental basis of almost all religions. Have a lovely week and I'll see you very soon in a post all about my weekend. Thanks again, and let me know what you think of the song and the video and the really hot Russian guy.

Love ♥
