Here’s one of my favorite songs of all time, “Do You Realize??” by the Flaming Lips.
I play chords and sing a version arranged for the fiddle.
At the end of the video I offer some tips on singing and playing.
I played the song on “The Fiddle That Michael Gave Away” which was handmade by a FiddleHed subscriber.
We’re giving it away in a contest which ends Sunday June 20, 2021 at 8 PM PT. Enter here: https://fiddlehed.co/WinAFiddle
This was requested by a FiddleHed named James.

Do you realize we’re floating in space?

Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die?

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes
Let them know you realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun don’t go down

It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning ’round
