Settle Down


I never really watched music videos when I was growing up, so I don't usually watch them unless a friend sends me one that's really good. "Settle Down" by Kimbra is good. The song is about the desperate want to settle down and have a perfect nuclear family, however, what makes the video really interesting is that the competing ladies aren't even teenagers. The implication of this is perhaps that settling down in this 50s-esque way is something that only children want, and that seeking that kind of superficial perfect is abated with age and experience, but that getting over that desire that is constructed by society is a (painful) part of growing up.
