Musical Monday on a Sunday: guilt and mercy

I have varied tastes in music. Sometimes it is the lyrics that really grab me… sometimes it is the tune… and occasionally (rarely) it is the video. This particular song/video has components of  hope and sorrow.  I find some of the images disturbing, but really? That is why they were included.  The band wanted us to stop and think about what we are doing — and what we have already done — to the world, to ourselves and to one another.  I think they ask, is there forgiveness? Can we forgive ourselves and start again? Will we make better choices in the future?

  1. The video producers don’t like us Canadians.. they’ve blocked us from viewing the content.

    • Sorry, Hilary! 😦
      It’s a WarnerBrosRecords video.
      Are you able to search for “What I’ve Done” by Linkin Park on YouTube? There might be a link out there for you to see that isn’t (strange!!) blocked.

  2. I fear the answer is no because so many out there don’t think we’ve done anything wrong.

  3. I have to agree with Jenn. Some food for thought with this one. 🙂

  4. We can only pray…

  5. That song is fun to play on Guitar Hero. 🙂

    But seriously, I think the same way as Jenn…there are so many self-absorbed people out there. It’s sad.
