My apologies! This week’s #TuesdayTunes entry is very late; It’s already Thursday afternoon here Melbourne. Anyway…better late than never!
Today I’m sharing a bundle of cute-ness: Love is Easy by British band Mcfly, which you may recall being very popular during 2012/2013.
Rather than the “met you in the club” junk prevalent in today’s music, the musical lyrical combination of Love is Easy captures the light-hearted innocence of true love’s beginnings.
Two thirds of the way into the song an audio-clipping further characterizes the delight of love’s first moments. On my first listening it I recognized the quote being from the 1946 film: “It’s A Wonderful Life”:
What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. – George Bailey (played by James Stewart)
– the quote originates from a scene where similar affection , to that of the song’s protagonist, is being expressed. The quote rounds off the song; the lover not only expressing his love, and the changes it has made to his outlook on life, but also the fact that this love is enabling him to do absolutely anything for the good of the beloved. It’s beautiful.
Adding to all this, the music video is cleverly filmed and choreographed, the band performing center-stage of an old theater in a manner reminiscent of The Cure‘s “Friday I’m in Love” video (which I will discuss in another edition of #TuesdayTunes.)
After showing this music video to my youngest sister for the first time, she begged me to play it again, and again, and again during the proceeding months.
I see it as one of the classic love songs of this decade.
Hope you enjoy it! ~
