Who's Big Daddy Weave, and just why are they being framed?
A word of explanation: Framed is a weekly blogavailable to the great readers of Y! Music. This is our 79th installment and we're glad you're looking in.
What we do is watch a music video incredibly carefully,drink some, and then stop the video at key moments. These still frames are postedevery week...but wait, there's an exciting twist! We also write captionsto the pictures we freeze. Invariably, these captions offer delightful socialor pop cultural commentary that has the whole country asking, "Hey, neighbor...didyou read Framed this week?"
Yes, everyone likes our captions. It's great!
This week our stars are Big Daddy Weave, a Christian combo whosound like a more acoustic Steven Curtis Chapman, MercyMe, and Casting Crowns,with just a smidge of Dave Matthews Band, according to something we stole offthe internet that sounds quite plausible.
In their video, "What Life Would Be Like," BDW findthemselves in Ecuadoron a mission to do some good for its poverty-stricken people. BDW are allied with the faith-basedinitiative World Vision, and you can catch their contact info at the end of thevideo. The band plays a little music and some soccer with the Ecuador kids,and then it's off to the junkyard and then to church. It looks like a reallyfull day.
The title of the song refers, of course, to what life wouldbe like if space aliens disproved all the world's religions with science. Wethink. There are probably other interpretations available, too.
Again, thanks for reading Framed, and stop by nextweek when we do Kelly Clarkson.
Um, Kelly Clarkson's video!!
