Music Mondays: Telling the World (Taio Cruz)

Let your friends know

Have you ever had that moment when you’re listening to music and just stop doing whatever you’re doing because images just keep flowing in your head?

It’s the same experience I felt the first time I heard Taio Cruz’s Telling the World on the radio. A whole chic flick sequence unfolded in my head while driving. I felt like running towards someone. The melody had a “tug” that was hard to ignore at the time and every time I hear it.

If you’re familiar with chic flick movies where the guy (or the girl) turned down the love of his life thinking that it wouldn’t work (or something happened that they had to separate) but then he realizes that he loves her so much that he couldn’t care less what happens, then you would understand what I’m talking about.

Imagine How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days where Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey) realized that he’d rather be with Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) despite how they tricked each other, and so he chased down her taxi and to convince her to stay. Or imagine any similar movie where the guy (or the girl) at one point comes to a realization and then runs for the love of his (or her) life.

For this Music Monday, I’m featuring Taio Cruz’s Telling The World. I didn’t know that this was the OST for Rio. I haven’t watched the film, though I just might because of this. I wonder if how I imagined the song would be used the same way in this movie.

Enjoy!
