Just A Song


If ever there is a time for just a song, it’s now. In this time and age where everything is so broken down in a cold world divided by hatred and misunderstanding, we need music more than ever as a good reminder that not everything is bad.

It’s time to accentuate the positive. That’s my approach on February 1 in New York City. So, a video I love and have since it first came out. It takes me back to the days of covering the Staten Island Yankees a decade ago. How did that much time pass between 2006 and now? Is it really 2017? It is.

Here are one of those bands I can’t get enough of The Fray with the classic video “Over My Head (Cable Car.” And how this video still grabs me for the cool school scene with Isaac Slade’s younger brother basically playing a younger him. Listen, sing along because you know the lyrics and watch. Enjoy. 😉

I just love how this was directed. It’s got such a cool feel. The school setting and classroom which we all know so well. The annoying test we struggle with where he looks around and searches but must find the answers himself. And then the awesome rock setting at the end with the live concert.

Anyway, this song was playing in my head at work yesterday. So, it’s definitely appropriate.
