Music Video of the Day: STOP! by Upsahl (2021, dir by Tsarina Merrin)


Stop worrying so much.  Stop making yourself sick with all of you anxiety.  Stop searching online for new things to panic about.  Stop and have a good time.  This video has a good message and it’s one that I happen to agree with.  There’s a difference between staying informed and purposefully driving yourself mad.  Sometimes, you just have to be willing to enjoy yourself.  I fear that there’s a lot of people out there who have forgotten that or who feel guilty if they’re not constantly depressed all the time.

Enjoy yourself.  Dance in the street.  Swim in a stranger’s pool.  Star in a music video.  Hang out in the back seat of someone’s car.  Sing a song about the joys of getting laid.  Whatever it is that you have to do, do it.

As I said, it’s a good message.  Everyone needs to listen to Upsahl.  Or, at the very least, they need to listen to my interpretation of Upsahl.  They need to listen to this song and they also need to listen to Drugs, a song that perfectly captures this current cultural moment.  A good song always captures the period in which it was written.  Of course, a good song also always has a good beat to which you can dance.  Sorry, folk music lovers.

Anyway, enjoy!

I’m up all night online
I’m looking up my symptoms
Tell myself I’m fine
But my system just ain’t listenin
Like oooh
This aint normal how Im feelin, no

Running higher than a fever

When palms start to sweat
I feel it in my stomach
This is how I get
Every time I know you’re comin’ over

Sometimes I think that I might die with you
Whooo
It’s like I’m almost too alive with you

Gonna beat so fast that it might stop
Hit my chest like
Wooohh ooh ooh oohh, Wooohh ooh ooh oohh, boom boom
Wooohh ooh ooh oohh, Wooohh ooh ooh oohh, boom boom

Kiss my neck
Whisper in my ear
‘You aint seen nothing yet’
Cool me down and catch my breath like

Wooohh ooh ooh oohh, Wooohh ooh ooh oohh, boom boom
Wooohh ooh ooh oohh, Wooohh ooh ooh oohh, boom boom
My hearts gonna beat so fast, gonna beat so fast
