The new music video from OK Go, made in partnership with Chevrolet. OK Go set up over 1000 instruments over two miles of desert outside Los Angeles. A Chevy Sonic was outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, and the band recorded this version of Needing/Getting, singing as they played the instrument array with the car. The video took 4 months of preparation and 4 days of shooting and recording. There are no ringers or stand-ins; Damian took stunt driving lessons. Each piano had the lowest octaves tuned to the same note so that they’d play the right note no matter where they were struck.

Why is this on a spirituality site? Because I think this is AWESOME!!! Is there a connection between “awesome” and “spirituality”? Is there a connection between “creativity” and “spirituality”?

And here’s the lyrics:

I’ve been waiting for months, waiting for years, waiting for you to change.
Aw, but there ain’t much that’s dumber, there ain’t much that’s dumber
than pinning your hopes on a change in another.
And I, yeah I still need you, but what good’s that gonna do?
Needing is one thing, and getting, getting’s another.

So I been sitting around, wasting my time,
wondering what you’ve been doing.
Aw, and it ain’t real forgiving, it ain’t real forgiving
sitting here picturing someone else living.
And I, yeah I still need you, but what good’s that gonna do?
Needing is one thing, and getting, getting’s another.

I’ve been hoping for months, hoping for years, hoping I might forget.
Aw, but it don’t get much dumber, it don’t get much dumber
than trying to forget a girl when you love her.
And I, yeah I still need you, but what good’s that gonna do?
Needing is one thing, and getting, getting’s another.

When? When? Why not now? Why not me? Why not me?

And if you still don’t get it… well – there will be another post here tomorrow with which you might make a connection 😉
