Here’s a link to the lyric video for a cover of a song I wrote. It’s recorded and performed by Noah Veil and the Dogs of Heaven, and my recommendation is you crank up the volume and play it LOUD.
The song was inspired by something I saw at a friend’s wedding a few years back. Some of the guests were in the media, including one fairly well-known actor, and during the ceremony and reception these people and these people alone were constantly checking their phones. It seemed they couldn’t participate in a private event — a significant day in their friend’s life — without fretting about receiving or missing a text or call. Their own lives were more important than anything else.
I was, as you’ll be able to tell from the lyric, fairly cheesed off about this.
