“What a Wonderful World” by “Marysam” presents audiences with a warm and amazing indie pop with jazz adding an extra touch of energy and flair for what is a bright and well-polished single to all the audience out there.
The melody of the song feeds into its simplicity further, the verses and chorus are made up of short, singular lines, with merely a slight change of pitch from one section to the other. The words used are poignant and in a way, this type of songwriting represents well the idea that less is more. Nothing is added just for the sake of filling out the space within the song – the space remains, it’s there for you to reflect upon the sound of the music and the ideas presented by the singer and songwriter. What you’re left with is a hypnotic progression of lines that circle around you, reinforcing these deeply reflective thoughts and their undeniably human nature.
The song is everything you’d hope for when seeking out uplifting and optimistic music to inspire or motivate. The production is crisp and driven by the positive energy that passes over to you as you listen. The lyrics portray the all-important ideas of an optimist, a hard-working, motivated songwriter hoping to inspire similar feelings of being unstoppable in all who hear the track. The accompanying video furthers this idea of togetherness, the song is crucial, and the video plays into that idea really well. The optimism is furthered by the visuals, the youthfulness and energy of the scenes between the vocal performance moments add a relevant contrast.
There’s a definite level of intimacy to the song that suggests it means something very personal to the songwriter. On occasion, this can mean that a song exists as this distant, detached art form that can only be briefly experienced or enjoyed. The absolute opposite is true in this case. The song has an immediately accessible ambiance to it, and the lines somehow seem relevant to you and whatever you may have been through. These are issues most listeners can relate to, and they’ve been expressed in a very genuine, even quite vulnerable manner. All of this adds greatly to the song’s appeal, and it showcases an intriguing and thoughtful artist. Well worth looking out for.
