There are several images and phrases this election regularly brings to my mind, on a weekly if not a daily basis. One of my preferred images is the bar fight in the video for Fun.’s We Are Young; at least they look like they’re having a good time in between slinging stuffed animals at each other and breaking things. Also, I’m fascinated by Nate Ruess because he looks precisely like I always imagined Tom Sawyer would look like as a real person (well, the adult version thereof). I find myself pulling up this video often these days when politics-related fretting starts to get too much. The song also features Janelle Monae, one of my personal heroes, who is always worth watching–more on her later.
