Music Video of the Day: Kind & Generous by Natalie Merchant (1998, directed by Mark Seliger and Fred Woodward)


“I’m proud of the song because I always wanted to write a song that had an extremely universal, simple sentiment. And just gratitude, that’s all this song is about and really I feel like I accomplished my mission: simple, to the point. And everyone knows what I’m talking about the first time they hear the song, and they can sing along.”

— Natalie Merchant on Kind and Generous 

I always wonder how many people actually know the name of this song.  I always just think of it as being the “thank you song,” better than Alanis Morrisette’s but not quite as good as Dido’s.  For the record, the end of the song features Natalie singing “Thank you” a total of 30 times before the song fades out.

The music video finds Natalie as a member of the circus.  The members of the circus were all actual circus performers which lends this video an authenticity.

Thank you and enjoy!
