Angels On The Moon by Thriving Ivory
"Angels on the Moon" is a single written by Scott Jason and Clayton Stroope and released on March 4, 2008 by Thriving Ivory. It was the lead single from the re-release of the group's self-titled album, released on Wind-Up Records. The song was used on the debut of VH1's Scream Queens. The song was inspired by the September 11 attacks and there are many references to the city of New York in the song. Songwriter and keyboardist Scott Jason told Songfacts that "Angels on the Moon" was also inspired by the U2 song "Where The Streets Have No Name". The line, "Don't tell me if I'm dying, `cause I don't want to know" is a way of saying that life should be lived to the fullest, because a person's time on earth is unknown and if tomorrow never comes, there will be no regrets. The video begins with the band performing at various part of San Francisco while getting faded and some scenes performing together in an alley and it ends with lead singer Clayton Stroope walking and singing. The video was released on June 2, 2008 and was directed by Christopher Sims. Show video tutorial!
