I won’t give up on you

Michael Franti & Spearhead All Rebel Rockers

All Rebel Rockers

All I could summon of hope today was Michael Franti’s tender anthem to the world, especially the words “I won’t give up on you.”

Michael Franti & Spearhead – “Hey World (Don’t Give Up Version)” video from Anti Records on Vimeo.

Hey World (Remote Control Version)
Hey World (Don’t Give Up Version)
The “Remote Control” version is kind of a call to stand up, to rise up and say, “Let’s throw away that remote control and let’s take action.” The “Don’t Give Up” version is an internal message to myself for the times when I feel weakest and most worried about the state of the world. I’m asking the world “Please don’t give up on me, and if you don’t then I won’t give up on you.”
