David Davis – “Ordinary Day” music video
“On every morning, when I’m waking up, I see people killing people just because. Seems my reflection’s the one to blame on an ordinary day. On every evening, I lay down my head. Many nights, oh, I just toss and turn instead. I know that nightmare ain’t far away on an ordinary day.” – lyrics
‘Ordinary Day’ finds David Davis grieving the hardship of inequality in America. Where brothers are in chains, sisters can’t catch a break, and hate crimes still occur. One day, he sees people (of all races) loving each other. But until then, through the struggle and pain, he sends a hopeful message to listeners that states: “From the rubble, we’ll rise again!”
‘Ordinary Day’ contains a social-justice narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the sentimental tune possesses moody instrumentation scented with a warm contemporary R&B aroma.
‘Ordinary Day’ was released in 2018. However, the recent murder of Ahmaud Arbery shed light on the destructive force of racism that plagues our society. I made this video grieving the hardship of inequality, but also with the sense that the only way to move forward is by having the hard conversations. I think the conversation starts with the fact that tragedies around racism, gun violence, and unequal pay in the workplace due to sexism—they’ve all become so commonplace and aren’t shocking anymore.” – David Davis stated
