"Do you realize," sings Gretchen Lieberum, "that you have the most beautiful face? That we're floating in space? That happiness makes you cry?" With a $3000 budget, a plastic crown, a used $50 video camera and a diverse handful of Los Angelans, so begins this hauntingly beautiful cover of a 2002 song by the Flaming Lips.

    Such a classic song with a wonderful message...(when I 1rst heard it, I thought the Flaming Lips were covering a Beatles out-take or a solo George Harrison song!)

    Do You Realize that we are in the middle of the Kindness revolution? ;-) If you want to be a rebel, be kind. Human-kind, be both.

    it's the spontaneous and random people she found...that show the depth of the real and genuine people we have in this world.

    Positively beautiful. I love the Flaming Lips version and this one certainly does it justice. I think Wayne Cohn would approve!

  • KJB

    When the sun goes down for each of us personally, it is just an illusion for others to watch, as the sunset. We are floating in space like the sun and will never really die but will continue on in a different place, a different space. Amazing symbolism, subtle yet powerful...

  • choclet peye

    Lately I can't seem to be bothered with listening to music, but this song has made me realise there is alot of music that can make me feel like myself but better, and I just need to look for it. Thank you everyone.

  • lydia

    Wow!! what a great message to the world. That song will put everyone back to reality... and it is so beautifully sung - I am so touched by it right now that my heart feels extreme sorrow - It should be shared even more internationnally - Well done

  • DanaDew

    I am having difficulty coming up with the words to describe how deeply this video and music touched me. Do you realize....how BEAUTIFUL and POWERFUL Gretchen's message is? (Heavy Sigh)

  • Ragu

    One of the Kings in this video tips the crown! While tipping the hat is a gesture of politeness, tipping the crown takes it to another level - that leadership and beauty are privileges bestowed upon one by others and must be acknowledged. And I love that this person does it spontaneously as if it is the most natural thing to do. Thanks for this video.

  • Flipper

    All I can say is 'Awesome' nothing else could give this video, music and message justice! WOW! 'Flipper'
