Must-Hear Music Monday: In the Pursuit of Poetry
Gustafer Yellowgold “Question Marks” Video Premier!
I love that Gustafer came to earth “in pursuit of poetry.” He’s here to learn, to experience, and to meet new people. Gus doesn’t have a goal in mind; He’s not the kind of guy looking to answer one question then move on. He’s here to just soak it all in, and that’s what this song is all about – always questing and questioning, sometimes even if there really isn’t an answer.
The concept is so simple and innocent – and so familiar to anyone with kids. Makes me wonder if this song was written by someone with a toddler in the house? What do you think?
This video will only be available for viewing today – February 7th, 2011 – so be sure to check it out!
