Because of this promotional video (commercial) that One Republic made for Disney and because my kids sang this over and over again all throughout our time in Disney World recently, this song “Good Life” will forever make me thing of that magical place. I really would love to live close to Disney World someday so we could go there more often but some think it’s best not to go there too much because it would take away from the specialness of the experience. I’m not sure. Yes, I know Disney has become a slick money-grabbing machine but there’s something amazing there because it taps into our inner child and brings back memories of our youth as well as creates new ones with our children for the future. It’s the closest thing we have to the fountain of youth.
Note: I love the part where the band recreates the famous Abbey Road street crossing that the Beatles did…only this time it’s at Disney World and some characters join them. 🙂
