Styx - Suite Madame Blue - with lyrics

"Suite Madame Blue" by Styx was written in 1975 by Dennis DeYoung as America was gearing up for its Bi-Centennial celebration in 1976. The song is not a celebration of the event, but a look at how it was being exploited.
Dennis DeYoung explained in Classic Rock Revisited: "The 200th anniversary of America was being totally taken over by commercialization in a rather unceremonious fashion".
Dennis DeYoung is a brilliant songwriter, and his work often challenges you to think outside the box. "Suite Madame Blue" is no exception, but if you know that "Madame Blue" refers to the statue of Liberty, the lyrics are not that hard to decipher.

I built this video to intentionally be outside the box and a bit bizarre, but knowing that  "Madame Blue" is the statue of Liberty, the video will make much more sense to everyone. I just wanted to make it more interesting and entertaining than using a bunch of footage and/or images of the statue of Liberty. Hope you all enjoy it. Please like and share
