Let it All Go- Birdy, Rhodes

Some days back when I was checking out some random videos on my Youtube I came across Let it All Go by Rhodes and Birdy. The title caught my attention and I played it, put the song in my favorites and decided to review it.

I love it when the video of a song matches the lyrics or it’s according to the meaning (which is rare) and the best thing about Let it All Go is the video exactly depicts what a song says.

Featuring Birdy and David Rhodes,  the video starts with a beautiful view with piano playing in background. The singers are shown standing in a red tinted wilderness, sad, confused and broken. The quiet, sad red place shows the love they shared which slowly faded away while red signifies the pain, as they have decided to part their ways.

As the song goes on, the place gets darker, which shows the different stages of breakup. The darkness fades slowly as it ends.

The song is about the end of a relationship, when you decide to be strong and take a decision to leave the other person no matter how much you loved them at some point. It’s about knowing and realizing that you need to let it go, for the better and staying hopeful for a better tomorrow no matter how dark the world might look at that time.

Making the Most of Our Lives

Making the most of our lives seem nearly impossible as we grow older. But, Is staying happy despite the odds and dark is possible? Some would say yes and some wouldn’t agree. But let me say this, it’s possible.

Life is much of a roller coaster ride but not smooth and black and white. Some days you feel as if you’re on the top of the world while others, you want to kill yourself. What we don’t understand is both times never last long and we experience the bad and good moments or times both.

Life get’s easier when you start understanding this and live your life by staying satisfied and happy in both. For bad times, we have to keep believing for the good and for the good times, we need to keep this fact in mind that they are not going to last long. Of course, this is hard because human beings look for forever happiness and get irritated, frustrated when things don’t go the way as we want them to, but finding the silver lining and keeping yourself content no matter what is the journey’s all about.
