    🏆Gold🏆

    In Greek mythology there is the story of King Midas who asked for the "golden touch" which is also called the Midas touch because everything he touched turned to gold. The story is a warning of how greed breaks you from the inside. King Midas was the richest man in the world but also the most lonely because he accidentally turned his daughter into gold. He was also the most hungry because food and water turned to gold when he tried to eat and he ultimately starved to death.
    I'm sure this idea was the basis for the song Gold by Imagine Dragons. The song describes the uneasy feeling of a fast rise to fame. Wondering what people you can trust and what people are just after you to get something. The whistling at the beginning of the song is very simple and intriguing. The desperate cry of, "NOTHING!" in the middle of the song is heart wrenching and the video is chilling. It is brilliant how the video begins and ends on an almost completely empty sound stage. The wardrobe worn by the band is dark and very simple as they mainly let the song and the unbelievable light show tell most of the story.

    🎵First comes the blessing of all that youíve dreamed
    🎵But then comes the curses of diamonds and rings
    🎵Only at first did it have its appeal
    but now you canít tell the false from the real

    🎵Who can you trust, who you can you trust?

    🎵When everything, everything, everything you
    touch turns to gold, gold, gold

    🎵Everything, everything, everything you touch
    turns to gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold

    🎵Statues and empires are all at your hands
    🎵Water to wine and the finest of sands
    🎵When all that you have is turning stale and itís cold
    🎵Oh you no longer feel when your heartís turned to gold
    🎵Who can you trust, who can you trust?

    🎵When everything, everything, everything you
    touch turns to gold, gold, gold

    🎵Everything, everything, everything you touch
    turns to gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold

    🎵Iím dying to feel again
    🎵Oh anything at all
    but oh I feel nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

    🎵When everything, everything, everything you
    touch turns to gold, gold, gold

    🎵Everything, everything, everything you touch
    turns to gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold

    The empty stage tells the tale of loneliness and Dan's body language in the beginning speaks of tiredness or brokenness because he is bent over staring at the floor.

    Desperately clinging to the microphone as well as the hope that there are good people in the world who can be trusted.

    This shot reminds me very much of the ending shot of the Demons video. Such a serious/sad face.

    The link to the YouTube video!
    I also forgot to say that Dan was recording the whistle into his laptop and while on the beach to capture the waves crashing too. It is pretty cool if you know what to listen for! This song sounds amazing in headphones!��

    This song is one of the songs that turned me into an Imagine Dragons Psycho....

    Recently one of my online friends just quit talking to everyone and this song now reminds me that maybe some people maybe are not as real of friends as you think they are....

    But I love this song anyway!!!!!!
