I’ve had this song from Blind Melon in my head all week. I think it has more to do with the video associated with it. If you’ve never seen it, it’s the story of a tap dancing honey-bee dressed girl as she’s trying to find people that appreciate her for herself.
She’s odd looking. She has a freckled face and wears glasses. Her bee outfit doesn’t seem to fit quite right.
She gets laughed off a stage, gets strange looks in the street, and finally finds her “bees” in a park that’s brightly colored green and blue in contrast to the rest of the video.
Its a great message. We all have our bees that we can fit in with. Its just a matter of time when we find them. These are the people that accept us unconditionally.
