This Too Shall Pass

Vodpod videos no longer available. 

Happy Monday!  I thought I would start the week with something fun.  It’s an innovative video from OK Go, an alternative rock band with a reputation for making catchy, viral videos.  The band’s video for “Here It Goes Again” won a Grammy Award for “Best Short-Form Music Video” in 2007, and features the band members dancing around on treadmills.  This song, “This Too Shall Pass,” captures a combination of emotion that should seem familiar to any change manager:  resigned to the inevitable, reluctantly optimistic, resistant (this too shall pass) and focused on moving forward.  Enjoy . . .

You know you can’t keep lettin’ it get you down
And you can’t keep draggin’ that dead weight around.
If there ain’t all that much to lug around,
Better run like hell when you hit the ground.

When the morning comes.
When the morning comes.

You can’t stop these kids from dancin’.
Why would you want to?
Especially when you’re already gettin’ yours.
‘Cause if your mind don’t move and your knees don’t bend,
well don’t go blamin’ the kids again.

When the morning comes.
When the morning comes.

Let it go, this too shall pass.
