Macy Gray “The Sellout” Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
Below is a video of Macy Gray's song "Beauty in the World", which is included on her new CD "The Sellout" (just released this week!) I'll give you the lyrics just below the video, and then I'm going to talk a bit about the song and its message.


"Beauty in the World" by Macy Gray

I know you're fed up
Like a lead up for us
All they talk about is
What is going down'
What's been messed up for us'
When I look around I see blue skies
I see butterflies for us

Listen to the sound and lose it
It's sweet music and dance with me
There is Beauty In The World
So much beauty in the world
Always beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world
Shake your booty boys and girls for the beauty in the world
Pick your diamond pick your pearl there is beauty in the world
All together now

We need more lovin'
We need more money, they say
Change is gonna come
Like the weather
They say forever
They say
When they're in between
Notice the blue skies
Notice the butterflies
Notice me

Stop and smell the flowers
And lose it the sweet music and dance with me
There is beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world
Always beauty in the world
There is beauty in the world
Shake your booty boys and girls for the beauty in the world
pick your pearl there is beauty in the world
All together now

Heya throw your hands up and holla
Throw your hands up and holla
When you don't know what to do
Don't know if you'll make it through
Remember god is giving you beauty in the world
So love (Beauty in the world)
Yeah love (Beauty in the world)

There is beauty in the world (Beauty in the world)
Beauty in the world (Beauty in the world)
Shake your booty boys and girls (Boys and Girls)
All the beauty in the world (Beauty in the world)
Pick your diamond pick your pearl (Pick your pearl)
There is beauty in the world (Beauty in the world)
All together now
Yeah love
Yeah love
Oh love
All together now

Hey baby when I'm looking at you
I know it's fact is true
There is hope for love
There is beauty in the world

My Take
What a fantastic song. Now only does Macy Gray's voice captivate, but the message that she's bringing across in the song is a truly beautiful one. First off, I love her voice. It's raspy and reminds me of Louis Armstrong. :-) But she has such control over it (ie she sings on key), which is why it's music to my ears. Secondly, the message. There is so much hate and pain in this world, but this song is really trying to tell us to look past that. Get over the hate, stop causing others pain, because the world is truly a beautiful place. Just look at the blue sky and the butterflies; diamonds and pearls. There is nothing more peaceful and blissful in this world than nature. She also sings a little about living in the moment. Rather than working non-stop and always going, going, going, it's time to stop and smell the flowers and look at the wonders around you. This is truly a song that I wouldn't mind my kids listening to, and nowadays that is hard to come by. With all of the songs out there with bad messages and swearing, it is so nice to have something with such a pure message. This is true music!
