    The Metaphysics in Music and Music Videos.

    [​IMG]

    Are we really paying any attention to the deeper messages embedded in popular music? If you are like me, and you can “read music” please post the music videos you believe have metaphysical value! And when I say “music” I mean all music, no one is excluded by race- because all races speak about Black folks anyway through their music!

    This should be interesting....

    Frozen- Madonna

    Why does she divide herself into three? Why does she transform into a flock of crows/ravens? Why does she transform into a black dog? What dark power is Madonna depicting here? We knew she is into the kabb(allah), yet who is “frozen” as she says in the song? Is she speaking about an individual or Africa? “If I could melt your heart, We'd never be apart, Give yourself to me, You are the key” we know that only moments after her transformation she became more and more interested in Africa's children.

    And if anyone can find the original “Like a Prayer” video we'll also so where some of this obsession started.

    Can anyone decode what popular Europeans groups like "ColdPlay" are really speaking about in their "tunes?" What type of Web is he speaking about here?

    They spun a web for me,
    They spun a web for me,
    They spun a web for me.

    Who is they?

    Seal- A Kiss From A Rose

    But did you know,
    That when it snows,
    My eyes become large and
    The light that you shine can be seen.
    I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
    The more I get of you,
    The stranger it feels, yeah.
    And now that your rose is in bloom.
    A light hits the gloom on the gray.

    Besides Heidi Klum, who is the light on the dark side of Seal? Just some ambiguous lyrics perhaps. It's obvious he's speaking about a White female, one that he is obsessed with, one that makes him feel young again- which is what the references about "gray" could be about. The trick here could be that Seal did not write this song for the Batman movie- but it could've been inspired by the "Beauty and the Beast."

    My submissions;

    Indie Arie - Ready for Love

    You actually put me onto this track, stating that it was a form of self initiation; a call to the spirit world if you will.




    I am ready for love
    Why are you hiding from me
    Id quickly give my freedom
    To be held in your captivity

    I am ready for love
    All of the joy and the pain
    And all the time that it takes
    Just to stay in your good grace
    Lately Ive been thinking
    Maybe youre not ready for me
    Maybe you think I need to learn maturity
    They say watch what you ask for
    Cause you might receive
    But if you ask me tomorrow
    Ill say the same thing

    I am ready for love
    Would you please lend me your ear?
    I promise I wont complain
    I just need you to acknowledge I am here

    If you give me half a chance
    Ill prove this to you
    I will be patience, kind, faithful and true
    To a man who loves music
    A man who loves art
    Respects the spirit world
    And thinks with his heart

    I am ready for love
    If youll take me in your hands
    I will learn what you teach
    And do the best that I can

    I am ready for love
    Here with a offering of
    My voice
    My eyes
    My soul
    My mind

    Tell me what is enough
    To prove I am ready for love

    I am ready

    A

    Kelis- Get Along With You

    This is the Kelis the industry was afraid of so they took this style away somewhat. Too dark perhaps. This definitely her "dreamscape." I enjoyed how she just takes herself apart at the end.

    Dear diary
    I remember like it was yesterday
    It was October 30
    I no longer have any need for these worldly things
    I wanna go where he is
    I'll follow the fire in the sky
    And like that I'll be gone
