Over the past month or two, I’ve tried to figure out how to get YouTube videos in my posts and I finally figured out how to make it work. So, as the first installation of my “Music Video” tag, I would like to present to you the video for “Demons” by: Imagine Dragons. I chose this video for two reasons – first, I absolutely love this song, and, second, the story the video tells is awesome.
Out of the two reasons as to why I chose this video, the second reason is really the one I’m going to focus on more. The video for “Demons” accurately portrays the power of music and how it can help people through hard times. This video tells the story of three unnamed characters, and it takes the viewers through the hard times or the inner demons each character is dealing with. But, all the characters are tied together in the sense that they’re all at an Imagine Dragons concert. I think that each character shown in this video accurately shows how strong the power of music is. Music and concerts bring people together, and they allow people to forget about everything else that’s going on in their lives, even if it’s just for a few minutes. The power of music is something that I feel is strongly underestimated, and I think this music video really opens up and precisely displays the influence music has on people and their lives.
In my mind, music is a force that shouldn’t be messed with, and this video only scratches the surface on showing that concept to the world.
