Music Monday: The Lumineer’s “Stubborn Love”

Last week’s post got me nostalgic, and that got me thinking about another song/video that really punches me right in the gut. By itself, The Lumineer’s “Stubborn Love” is a good song, with a particularly profound lyric, “The opposite of love’s indifference.”

But when I saw the video for this song, and every time I’ve seen the video since, it kills me. Because the story told feels like my story. Yes, the little girl in the video is older than I would’ve been, but this video/song combo taps into my unconscious memory, because I feel like I’ve been here (and based on what my mom has told me about growing up, I have).

This is the rare case where the video really elevates the song into something more. At least for me.

Take a listen:

Like it? Love it? Hate it? Sound off below!

Reminder: Music Monday is about the music, not the videos. Videos are just the medium I’m using to share the music, and some videos aren’t actually videos at all. Enjoy the songs, but if YouTube forces you to watch some sort of advertisement before you can get to the music, please be patient.
