We kregen al veel recensies binnen over onze derde plaat Night Shadows, maar opeens dook er een recensie op van Was it Worth it en de bijhorende video.
While I am usually a big believer in music videos needing to be visual to the point where it feels like something is going on, this particular video by Blue and Broke is an image of a single person singing in front of a black background. This is important to me though because it makes it feel like you’re just being stared in the face and confronted about something which perhaps you do not wish to be confronted about.
“Was it Worth it” has a very precise message. The lyrics wonder whether or not the five children given up for adoption look like the mother or father. Unless if you have also been forced to give up five children for adoption, you might find it difficult to relate to this song (And if you have been forced to give up five children for adoption you have my sympathies) There still exists a place in music though where songs don’t have to feel relatable in order for them to be must listen and this just proof of that.
