How can I not show the “We Are Hungry” video that’s making the rounds? I have to:
You probably recognize that the song the video parodies is Fun.’s “We Are Young.” I really liked that song.
Fun. n0w has a new song out that I find equally appealing. It’s called “Some Nights.” The video is a peculiar mish-mash of Civil War battle scenes that don’t seem to me to have anything at all to do with the song’s lyrics.
The song’s lyrics are pretty mysterious. Nevertheless, I keep getting caught by the last stanza which — forgive me for me overreaching here — seems to strike a blow at young people’s abortion culture. Here’s the video:
