Good Day

Album: Goodbye Alice In Wonderland (2006)
  • The video for this song is another allusion to The Wizard Of Oz (In "Goodbye Alice in Wonderland," Jewel mentions the "Goodbye yellow brick road"). The inside of the house is black and white, and outside is colorful. The pathway is made of yellow bricks. Similar to the story, the world outside of the house is originally a much nicer place, but slowly becomes less dreamlike and more cruel. >>
