Deadmau5 “The Veldt” Best Electronic Song Ever
I only heard it for the first time last night, but I’m already confident in saying that the Deadmau5 song “The Veldt” is the best electronic song ever released. Never before has electronic music had such a poignant message. Not only is “The Veldt” the first song I’ve heard in my lifetime to positively reflect the times, but it also directs people to read the story “The Veldt” by the recently deceased Ray Bradbury. In the technological world we live in today, there is no author more relevant than Ray Bradbury. When I finally read Fahrenheit 451 two summers ago it was crazier than any psychedelic drug I’ve ever taken. I would put down the book in the middle of reading to exclaim to my roommate about all the parallels with today’s world. That’s the thing that truly great art does: It makes you see the world in a whole new way.
More than anything Deadmau5′ “The Veldt” is hopeful. It’s not just the informed social commentary of the lyrics, but the chord progression itself sounds filled with hope. It’s a sound that says even though the world is crazy and totally electronic now, there is still a collective young soul of humanity that is dying to break out from our chains. Thank God for artists like Deadmau5. I think the only comparable song to “The Veldt” is The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love.” Both songs really say everything that needs to be said. What’s so unique about “The Veldt” though is that instead of simply communicating a message, it points to the future. Please, I implore you, listen to “The Veldt” and you too will get the feeling that good things are coming soon. This is a song that makes me believe the best is yet to come. I’ve never experienced anything quite like it.
I should also say that I am pretty out of touch with today’s electronic music. I generally listen to The Beatles, disco, 80s R&B, and 70s African funk. Although I’m also a songwriter currently trying to write today’s pop music, I’ll be the first to admit that it’s technologically advanced animal music. It’s all just about having sex and getting wasted. Not Deadmau5. I’m not familiar with today’s electronic concerts and festivals where I’m sure there’s plenty of drugs and sex, but even though I’ve yet to go to one, I think there’s way more to it than having a good time. Deadmau5′ “The Veldt” is the first song I’ve heard that makes me want to dance and pick up a book at the same time. That my friends is exactly what we need right now: education with energy. Thank you Deadmau5. Thank you Ray Bradbury. I truly believe that the potential for music to change the planet into the utopia we should be will be realized in my lifetime. Peace and love.
