Lindsey Stirling: Brave Enough #YouTube #Movie #Review

YouTube Red presents Lindsey Stirling: Brave Enough, a look inside the emotional journey and roller coaster ride of Lindsey’s recent album and tour.

Turning 30 and recently losing her best friend, all while dealing with family problems, Lindsey takes you behind the scenes as her tour gets underway, as well as playing at the famous Dolby Theatre, home of The Oscars.

From the age of five, she has played the violin and it hasn’t always been fun and games. She played on the streets and in the subways after college, as well as going to LA on America’s Got Talents before getting chewed out and eliminated, which only made her want it more. So she turned things around and started experimenting with dubstep and EDM, and her quickly growing YouTube view count took off.

Lindsey shares so much more with the viewers, as her journey and story are worth the watch. Watching it makes you feel the emotion that went into the album, something usually only the band members know about and understand. It also lets you hear how she got where she is today and what drives her to keep carrying on.

One other interesting part is hearing the backstories to some songs, including one of my favorites in Shatter Me, which is one giant metaphor for her fight with anorexia.

For those with a subscription to YouTube Red, give this one a watch, and I’ll give it a 7.5 out of 10.

Songs of the Day

A regular part of this site, my song of the day posts. Strangely Summer 2016 has yet to have a “Song of the Summer”, but that doesn’t stop me from finding needles in a haystack.

What’s that? New Green Day album? Yes, please. Here’s the first single.

Bang Bang – Green Day

I want to be a celebrity martyr
The leading man in my own private drama
The hero of the hour
Daddy’s little psycho and Mommy’s little soldier

Recently discovered Lindsey Stirling due to her single to headline Pete’s Dragon, but while listening to her works, I came across this gem, with Lzzy Hale from Halestorm

Lindsey’s new album Brave Enough drops tomorrow, August 19th.

Shatter Me – Lindsey Stirling ft. Lzzy Hale

Somebody shine a light
I’m frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me
So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me

I Hate U, I Love U – Gnash ft. Olivia O’Brien

You ever wonder what we could have been?
You said you wouldn’t and you did
Lie to me, lie with me, get your fix
Now all my drinks and all my feelings are all mixed
Always missing people that I shouldn’t be missing

Once In A While – Timeflies

From Brooklyn to New York, then off to the West
In Cali, no Khaled, but fuck, we the best
My stripes, stay American, lemme express
And I keep it as live as a Total Request

But once in a while, I catch myself
Once in a while, I ask myself
What am I doing?
Once in a while, I need your help
