COLORS OF LOVE: Love Is Blue… and Red, and Green, and Purple, and Rainbow

Three days ago, out of the blue, I got an inspiration for this LOVE IS BLUE music video.

Who from? Archangel Michael, of course. Who else… (he is in charge of the Blue Ray of Love, Will and Grace – Throat Chakra – Music Guidance).

The idea came to me in the course of creating the photo essay COLORS OF LOVE. Paul Mauriat’s 1967 musical hit “Love Is Blue” was a part of it. I had not heard it or played it in nearly half a century.

Yet when I sat down to play it on Sep 11, it took only about 10 Screen Shot 2014-09-12 at 4.55.50 PMminutes to get the whole musical score.  No sheet music, no nothing. Just the Spirit helping me download the song from the ether. It even came to me in the right key – A-minor – which the composer also used.

“How did you like it?” I asked her.

She seemed too distracted with her computer to pay attention.

“Nice,” she replied absentmindedly.  “I like all your music,” she added without lifting her head from the keyboard. 🙂

What took the longest in the creation and production of this music video was actually making the film itself.  And creating the images and clips for it.
