Colbie Caillat’s Inspirational Video for ‘Try’ and Melissa’s Thoughts On It
Two weeks ago Colbie Callat released her music video for her new song ‘Try’ 15 million YouTube views later, I think it’s safe to say this is one of the most inspirational music videos I’ve seen in a long time.
In her song song ‘Try’ Colbie sings about natural beauty, and some of the struggles many women face in today’s society. She does it in such a beautiful way. I know in today’s world with television, magazines, and the internet it’s so easy to feel inadequate and not good enough. Colbie Callat’s song is a breath of fresh air from all of that. With lyrics like,
“Put your make-up on. Get your nails done. Curl your hair. Run the extra mile. Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?”
Those lyrics really show the struggles that many deal with on a daily basis. I know I personally struggle with hearing those things in my head constantly, and if I’m not hearing it from myself the magazines and TV are really driving those points home. However the chorus really goes to show the true essence of the song:
“You don’t have to try so hard. You don’t have to, give it all away.You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up. You don’t have to change a single thing.
“Take your make-up off, let your hair down, take a breath, look into the mirror, at yourself, don’t you like you?
