Let Joy and Innocence Prevail

This is a very powerful song, which I've always liked. It's the kind of song that needs more play today, as no one is allowed to be innocent these days. Kids as young as 5 years old are being indoctrinated into acting as old and as snotty as possible (as witness every sitcom on TV where the "cute" kid talks back to parents, knows more than parents, ya da ya da. And can teenagers be innocent? Fat chance!)

Anyway, I've done some animation to the song, using some characters from a world called Arveacy - the novel of which I'd worked on long ago...never finished it though. So this will be the first time anyone has ever seen those characters.

For those unfamiliar with the song, the first 51 seconds are instrumental, then she begins singing. Grace Jones has an incredible voice and she does a great job with this song - better I think than anyone else could do.
