Colin Hay: Love Is Everywhere
Former Men At Work frontman Colin Hay says “I think what this song is attempting to counter, by at least some measure, is the end result of the continued tragic global catastrophe of separation,” in describing his hopeful new single. “The colossal calamity of believing yourself to be separate from everything and everybody else. Refusing to consider the possibility that we all are part of this planet’s structural fabric. Every day I feel love, and I’m happy that I do. I feel it in the indifference of nature, especially in the early morning, when I’m walking the dog. I see it when considering the amazing molecular structure of a California oak. I hear it every time I listen to “Love Me Do”. I try and recognize it with all my senses, as much and as often as I can. You see that way, I feel better, my skin even tingles. It’s good when that happens.” The video below is a celebration of love and it’s a pretty fun ride too.
