Never lose your childish innocence. It’s the most important thing.

For your viewing and listening pleasure, we are pleased to present you with Look Around - a brand new music video featuring the work of 26 musicians! WATCH HERE
A big thank you to SONY for coming on board as a sponsor of hitRECord and for providing 50 of their brand new Music Video Recorders to members of our community to help shoot this video. The song includes a number of references to the great outdoors, so we asked musicians of all kinds to contribute by playing along to the song in nature. 
As a result of this partnership, all of the contributing artists to this video will receive a portion of our 2013 sponsorship money. 
Enjoy!
So proud to have been a part of this music video! I LOVE my sony MVR and am so thankful for always having hitrecord an outlet to create art with people around the world!

I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time… For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars… And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined our street… Or my grandmother’s hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper… And the first time I saw my cousin Tony’s brand new Firebird… And Janie… And Janie… And… Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday
