“You’re So Amazing!”
For this episode of “The Space Babies Show: A Song in a Day”, John X was asked to decide on the theme for the day’s song. He had just watched a speech by the prolific Malala Yousafzai where she had touched upon the concepts of free speech and thought and how vital they are to the growth and evolution of any societal & tribal structure.
No other species on the planet has a greater ability to express thoughts, emotions, concepts & just general knowledge than our own. And yet all too often, that gift is suppressed & discouraged by even some of the planet’s most sophisticated thinkers. This ability is truly a blessing that needs to be exercised.
Today we celebrate Free Expression by doing exactly that. As a song theme, each writer had complete freedom to ‘do what you wanna do, be who you wanna be’ and what emerged was a lighthearted homage to what would seem to be a “no brainer” of a concept (although this world can make it so complicated).
Our guest Michael “Aladdin” Kuehnert (Save the Farm, Shanti G) closed out the writing session with a spontaneous, surrealist journey into ourselves. His colorful lyrics are possibly surpassed only by his amazing performance in the music video. His wife Jasmin Saidi-Kuehnert also joins us for a brief piano interlude during the song itself.
