A visual interpretation of Crystal Blue Persuasion. The audio is from a live performance. They still sound great! I love this song.

For some reason, the comments section of this video was the forum for a debate about religion and what Tommy James had in mind when he wrote this song. For me, Crystal Blue Persuasion is a transcendent song... about more than a specific religious view... about "peace and good and brotherhood" It is simultaneously a plea and a message of hope... "the sun is rising... people are changing... a new vibration... maybe tomorrow..." i don't know what specific influences (religious or otherwise) motivated Tommy James to write and perform this gem, but I am certain that the message is about how we should be treating other members of the human family and that it is a message of hope.
