Magic In Tunes: 06/25/2015 – Color Is A Beautiful Thing

I saw this new commercial by Behr with this song in the background that caught me. It is so true that colors are really beautiful and something that suits you, the true hue is always inspiring.

On a quick search I came to that the original song was Sung by Nina Simone for her 1982 album Fodder on My Wings. And it was sung in three languages by her at the same time. How interesting and unique…languages are also like different colors that convey the same sentiment no matter what verbiage is used.

Here’s the commercial:



And now the original song:
