KIDS R WATCHING THIS WHY R GUYS KISSING WHY R U SMOKING MY 13 YEAR OLD SON WHATCHED THIS THEN KISSED A GUY AND SMOKED
Just when I began to give up hope that our music was lost to canned pop music, Hozier comes along. This is one of the most moving songs/videos I've seen in years. It's haunting, and it sticks with you. It makes you think! Not to disparage other true artists out there performing, but they seem to get drowned out by the antics of the manufactured musicians. I look forward to many years of artistry from Hozier. BTW, if you can't handle the subject matter, that's your problem. You need to grow up and understand that your uninformed personal opinions do equal the voice of the community.
I Really have come to understand that one does not awake to be black and blue,homeless,addicted,diabetic. The things we fear the most are what we can not understand,and worst of all we don't want to have humility or the tools to get knowledge on. Does one choose to be born or find out someday that they have some sort of disorder. Wake up, this is not a dress rehersal for hell anymore than what is already happening. we are human here for a reason,be teachable and carry the message.
Shout it out and sing along - beautiful lyrics, encapsulating so many meanings in sparse and perfectly chose words. Reminds me of Cannibal Song sung by Grace Slick. Art is supposed to question our perceptions, this song does.
The song is haunting. The video is haunting. A combination of the grayscale, dress and way the mob acts... Stays with you.
Hozier has More Musical Sophistication Than All of One Direction Put Together!!!! He Will Be Taking Us To Church For a While!!!
My dad likes it but I LOVE IT!!! I'm hoziers 1 fan!! They are the best!!! You guys got some talent! People who say this song is bad are retarted!!!! They need to get a life!!!! You guys are awesome and I sing this song in the shower!! I ❤️ u guys!! Keep singing!!!
What is beautiful about Hozier is his ability to write songs that have lyrics that reach so many people, and relate to so many people, yet at the very same time, so many people….have absolutely NO IDEA what the song is actually about. It is fascinating to see others take this song and completely get the message wrong, on every single level, simply because of one word…..it astounds me every single time. People see what they choose to see, hear what they choose to hear. If you are truly open, and your heart is true, then you understand this song on its purest level.
I am appalled at how many nasty red neck homophobes have put their two cents in. Don't watch it! That simple stupid. Go watch your Walker Texas Ranger reruns. Others see this as a very topical video resonating in todays world showing the plight of anyone different.
Seriously go away and be a*****es somewhere else. This is a beautiful video with a true message about our society and if you don't like something this beautiful.. Then leave!!! ❤️💜💛💙💚
Somebody's got to say stuff like this. The power of art is changing America, for the better. Nice video, amazing song.
