“Safe and Sound”- Capital Cities

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend. I had a lot of fun with my friends last night at a little gathering. This weeks music Monday is a song that has been around a lot longer than what most people think. This song was actually released in 2011. What song is this? The song “Safe and Sound” by Capital Cities.

I like this song. I take that back, I love this song. Why? Well, I am not quite sure why I love this song as much as I do. There are actually official videos for this video. The one that most people know is the video posted above. The original music video is very similar in that it is it features dancers in back and white. Rather than a lot of actors and dancers, the people in that are in the original video are just people from old clips of people dancing. The third music video is the official music video and while it is pretty cute, I just do not find it as interesting as the second video. It has an old fashioned feel to it mixed with enough modern things that make it so perfect for that song. I am also a sucker for videos with classical dance styles in them. Like Fred Astaire type dancing. I like that sort of stuff. I am also a sucker for men in suits and tuxedoes.

So there you go. I hope you enjoy this song. It gets stuck in my head all the time. With its catchy and upbeat tune and video that makes you want to dance along, it is by far one of my favorite song/music video combinations.

Until next time!
