Introducing: Music Mondays

So, I've decided to start this thing called Music Mondays. Basically, each Monday I will post a video to a song that I like and feel has some relevance to the topics discussed on this blog. I really feel that music can sometimes help to capture emotions and ideas that other forms of expression aren't able to. I hope to be able to introduce you to some new music, but I can't know for sure if that will be the case--because I have no idea what type of music you listen to (:

This week's selection is Tie My Hands, by Lil Wayne and Robin Thicke. Lil Wayne just won the grammy for best rap album, and they performed this song at the ceremony. As soon as the show was over, I went upstairs to my computer and downloaded the song from itunes. I really like this song, because it gives voice to a very sad event in our recent history, and at the same time has a very hopeful tone. This video is actually a homemade one that someone on youtube made; I don't think there is an official video for the song. They have the lyrics posted along with the pictures, but some of them are hard to read, so you can also find them here.

As always, I welcome your comments.
