While the theme of being "super strong" could lend itself to any one of a number of different historical figures, in this case the song celebrates everyday toughness -- ballerinas, teachers, cancer survivors -- and, by implication, encourages fortitude in others. That sounds Really Dramatic, but the song moves gently along with an electronic percussive accompaniment, and the video, directed in black and white by chief Dee Lloyd Miller, has just enough goofiness and shots of kids dancing down the street to make it sweet and fun. It features a number of Miller's family and friends, and all the dancing isn't a random choice -- he says he thought:
"a joyous, natural way to [celebrate being strong] would be to use dance in the backdrop of my own neighborhood in Brooklyn. I love to dance and I love films and music videos that use dance in all its forms."
It's not the technicolor vibrancy of parts of La La Land but it's joyful just the same. I'm happy to give the video its world premiere here. (The song itself can be found on the Dees' 2016 album The Rocket Went Up!: Sing-Along History Vol. 2.)
