500 Days of Summer

It started when I was young.

When I would get a bit down or depressed, I would make up music videos in my head. Early on, when I was an adolescent, the daydreams involved me singing something to adoring fans or dancing something flawlessly (also to adoring fans -- do you see a pattern here?).

Nowadays, I just direct cool visions of happiness to cheery music scores. So I was THRILLED to find this video via a blogger friend who graciously allowed me to pass it on to you. This clip, for the movie "500 Days of Summer", is exactly the sort of thing that goes on in my head when I'm blue and need to pull myself up by my own bootstraps.



  1. Lovely!! Reminds me a bit of one of my movie favourites, Enchanted, when life turns into a musical:

    oh and did you see the "Grocery store musical" I posted a few days ago?

    guaranteed to brighten up your day!!!

  2. Yes, wouldn't it be great if that kind of thing happened in real life?

  3. Me too, Lori! I probably make up at least one music video in my head everyday. My most obscure music vid daydream happened a couple of weeks ago when I caught Gershwin's "An American in Paris" on public radio one morning. Had a lovely imaginary outfit to go with it and an entourage of French men!

  4. Makes me think of 'It's, oh, so quiet by Bjork' Thanks for sharing.
    All the very best,
