Gene Wilder - Pure Imagination

Gene Wilder has always been one of my heroes and this song is a facet of my childhood. Listening to it often brings chills to my spine because it hits so close to home. I’d definitely label myself as the creative type and there’s just something perfect about being told as a child (and as an adult) that the world is yours to change. The world is only as you perceive it and you can change those perceptions if you put your mind to it. 

If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it. Wanta change the world? There’s nothing to it…

I listened to a lot of covers even though I had no doubt that I’d choose the original. Rosie even found this fantastic instrumental version which is just dreamy. I’ll be traveling a lot this summer with her and we are going to shoot a music video for this song. She’s going to record a cover and I’ll film her singing it in every city we’re traveling to. At the end of our trip I’ll compile it all together and I can only hope that it will turn out as magical as the original.
