There are heroes and then there are legends, heroes get remembered but legends never die.– Averstu.com
In our first Genre Profile (formerly Genre of the Week) in ages, this song came to mind when we talk about legends. The past year and a half brought out not only the best in everyone but also legends. Doctors, nurses, law enforcement, journalists, teachers (among them) but also the common person have risked their lives to help others who were badly in need of help but have been left in the dust because of greed and ignorance.
It leads to the question of how we want to be remembered- specifically how we perceive ourselves in front of everyone and how we can make a difference.
And this is what the song is all about. Produced by the American rock music group Pop Evil, the plot looks at a group of people who find a relict of their youth- a video game machine sitting disused for many years- and decide to relive the moment when they became heroes in their game, answering all of the questions, many of which include all the „what-ifs“.
The song not only focuses on the past but it also sends a message which is „Now is our time. How do we want to be remembered?“
And this is where we start off with a good conversation with the older generations, asking them about their lives and how they would like to be remembered. Sometimes a look in the past can help us in the present dictate what our future should be like. Something to think about as you listen to this song……..
