Striking a Chord for Humanity: '21st' by The American Hotel System and the Art of Giving Back
The song "21st" by The American Hotel System carries a mix of cheerful and philosophical thoughts. It begins with the author's admission of struggling with pride and its destructive impact on relationships. This struggle led to the creation of the song as a declaration of the intention to live differently.
In an era where culture places significant emphasis on self-indulgence and instant gratification through technology, and social media can make us feel like the center of attention, "21st" urges us to break out of our echo chambers and reject selfishness.
This song serves as a reminder of the importance of selflessness and love for others, even in a world focused on personal satisfaction. It reminds us that we can all contribute to creating a better 21st century.
