Underwood's message is crystal clear on "So Small"
As if the song is not amazing enough, Carrie Underwood’s interpretation of the lyrics in her hit single “So Small” come to life in the video. The video features a girl who has run away from home, a mother who is distraught over her hectic family life, and a husband who was involved in an argument with his wife. All three lives intertwine when they are involved in a car crash, but they are given a second chance at life. The lyrics of “Small” truly take shape here, as narrated by Underwood, who is absolutely stunning. The fact that bickering amongst kids and arguments over little things can overshadow much more important issues is hit home in “Small.” Aided by director Roman White for the fifth time, the cinematography in “Small” is simple yet beautiful, from the stationary shattered glass suspended in air to the sun--bursting climax of the video. It is no secret Underwood’s videos have improved since her debut with “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” and they will only continue to impress audiences as her career progresses.
This Is Not A Music Video...
it is a short story. The first single off of Carrie Underwood's sophmore album, Carnival Ride, is So Small. This really is a touching, moving song. It tells you that often is the case where something so small is created into a prominent issue, and you make rash judgements as a result. The reason I say that this is a short story is because, it really feels like a small film. Underwood's lyrics go hand in hand with the video, almost as if she is the narrator. In the video, there is a girl who gets into an argument with her mother. She then runs away from home and stops at the highway. As an approaching car nears her, she steps in front of the car to let it take her life. The car swerves to get out of the way, and hits an angry man arguing with his wife on the phone. The video then completely stops. Underwood appears, almost as a ghost, singing the chorus about how "sometimes you feel like you're climbing a mountain, and it's just a grain of sand". The angry man's actions rewind, and he makes up with his wife. The girl then returns home and resolves whatever dispute she had with her mother. This video is really very emotional, and moving. After seeing it, you will have a new perspective on just how minor some issues can be, and how they really should be handled. This an exceptionally inspiring, wonderful music video. Excuse me, what I meant to say was that this was an inspiring story.
#1 FOR SURE. Way To Go Carrie.
After what seemed like the longest wait in music video history its finally here. The video for "So Small" and the bust that the song needs to get to number one. With CMT and iTunes backing this up, its obvious the star tha Carrie has become. CMT has never devoted this much time to a single video in history, Carrie is just that special. The video is amazing. It takes this song and gives it a story, much like Jesus Take the Wheel. There is actually quite a few similarities to JTTW. The words do not match up with her mouth perfectly, its not a glitch, its how it is supposed to be. There are 3 different stories going on. 1) Mother and Daughter 2) Husband and Wife 3) Husband and Wife w/ Multiple Children. The effects in this video are AMAZING. The car crash is the best thing that ive seen in a video in a LONG time. Even when she grabs the piece of glass. It is all just amazing. The use of lighting in this video is over the top. From a single light behind Carrie to make her glow, to the changing of light in the end from night to day, or darkness to salvation. This video is a true *****. Way to go Carrie. Now just to countdown till October 23rd.
