Nelson's Dustin Stashko shares a song by Herman Dune
I listen to a whole thwack of new music that passes my desk every week. On any given day I have an album or some singles that need a listen.
This week, I’m changing things up a bit. Normally, I walk you through an entire album but today all you get is a single tune. After all, I’m all about “variety being the spice of life,” which is admittedly, why I’m still single - but in this case it’s different and I’ve been faithful to one song.
The song I am referring to is Tell me Something I Don’t Know by Herman Dune.
This song is romantic, beautiful, and striking and you’ll want to listen to it for the rest of your life.
Now, it’s very rare for a music video to capture that same fresh feeling you get when you first hear a song, but it’s bang-on for Tell Me Something. I’ll even go as far as to suggest that you watch the video first just so you’re able to fully appreciate the experience.
The video sees none other than Jon Hamm (of Mad Men and just being handsome fame) pick up a blue Yeti (seriously) who’s hitchhiking. I don’t want to ruin it for you so I’ll just say rest of the video is a road trip and possibly the most fantastic day this Yeti has ever experienced.
Here’s your thought process when watching the video:
“What the hell is this Yeti thing?”
“Well, that’s pretty cute.”
“Best road trip ever.”
“This song’s catchy.”
Then you’ll smile from ear to ear, and hit the refresh button.
This song/video shares the wide-eyed innocence everyone should have about the world.
We have unfortunate experiences that thicken our skin and set up walls that people can’t get through, which deters potential great possibilities.
Often we forget that letting our guard down and just letting life happen is perfectly sane. There’s no judgement. It’s damn beautiful. If there’s one song that makes it on any of your mix CDs this summer, make it Tell Me Something.
