It features dancers from the "Thinking'Bout Somethin'" video, now having a dance-off on a white studio. The band recreates some elements from the Shout It Out album cover using the same colors and imagery. Family members as daughters and sons, brothers and wives are pictured dancing on the video as well. Taylor Hanson said. "With the'Give A Little' video, we're more thinking,'Hey this is about creating a template, a backdrop that just makes you love the song more,' " he explained to MTV News. "The difference with this song and the video is that it's much simpler and much more about getting the song ingrained in your mind, thus was a different thing." "When we made the video, it was kind of the release after the high production of'Thinking'Bout Somethin', " Taylor explained. "With the'Give a Little' video, it's back to the blank slate. We invited all these dancers. We just cranked up the music and threw a party and let people dance; the attitude is not about everyone doing the same moves. "There's this energy to it," Taylor said.

"Strangely, there's this dance theme. We're not known for our dancing. Kind of,'Get out there and let loose.' Nicole James from MTV Buzzworthy has said, that: ""Give A Little" features the brothers Hanson playing their instruments in front of a simple white backdrop. The song starts off slow as they sing about wooing ladies, while the video cuts to different couples getting their dance on; the momentum builds, pretty soon there's paint being splattered everywhere, everyone on the set is getting down. Like I said, adorable, and we're digging the low-budget video thing. "Give A Little" is a snappy pop song with a to-the-point video that focuses on the catchiness of the track. No bells and whistles, just singing and Taylor Hanson wearing Ray-Bans. What else do you need in life? NOTHING...in my opinion". Jocelyn Vega from MTV was very positive with the video, saying: " The sparse performance video for the Shout It Out track seamlessly includes dancers of all backgrounds showing off their skills. It's a far cry from last year's over-the-top clip for "Thinking'Bout Somethin'," an homage to the Blues Brothers.

She said, that: "The video is, in fact, pretty simple: It features cardboard cutouts, dancing couples, some paint splatter and hip-hop dancers. The guys get in the action during a big dance break, playing instruments while surrounded by the clip's various performers". "Spring will be here before we know it, the song is upbeat and engaging", concluded Vega. Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics

Shivram Mahadev Paranjape

Shivram Mahadev Paranjape was an eminent Marathi writer, orator and freedom fighter from Maharashtra. He created unrest among the people of Maharashtrian against British rule through his popular weekly Kaal from 1898 to 1908. Paranjape was born on 27 June 1864 in Mahad in Raigad district to a local practising advocate. After his primary education at Mahad, at 14 he attended secondary school in Raigad, he was impressed by his teacher Vishnushastri Krushnashastri Chiplunkar who had inspired Lokmanya Tilak and Gopal Ganesh Agarkar to start their social and political career. In 1882 Paranjape moved to Pune to join New English School newly founded by Chiplunkar and Agarkar. In 1884 he received the prestigious Jagannath Shankarsheth scholarship. In 1885 he spent his first year at Fergusson College moving to Deccan College to finish his B. A.. In 1895 he received his M. A. from Bombay University. After receiving his master's degree Paranjape joined Maharashtra College as Sanskrit professor, he started giving lectures on the current political and social situation and became popular due to his particular sarcastic style of presentation.

As a follower of Tilak he participated in many socio-political events like'Shiva Jayanti' and'Ganesh Utsav' which compelled him to resign from his college job. In 1898 he founded a weekly called Kaal, which would have two meanings in Marathi, his fiery editorials and humorous and sarcastic style of writing started making the younger generation furious with anger against the British rule. Kaal continued to be a popular weekly sometimes surpassing Tilak' Weekly Kesari until Paranjape was arrested in 1908. British authorities convicted him of “sedition” and sentenced him to nineteen months of imprisonment with hard labor. In 1910, when he was set free, British authorities banned the publication of Kaal and confiscated collections of his past essays and editorials in the weekly. Paranjape decided to turn to literature. Paranjape critiques, he was elected president of the Marathi Sahitya Sammelan held at Belgaum in 1929. His works include the following: काळातील निबंध मानाजीराव पहिला पांडव विंध्याचल गोविंदाची गोष्ट A Paris must be the reality considering that the land of England in the past was having nothing but a huge stock of iron-ore.

But after it came into contact with India, iron-ore turned into gold. If the king owes something to the people let the people themselves decide the ways and means to recover the dues. Can't help when some oxen sincerely feel that their necks are safe under the yoke and some insects prefer to live in the dirt. ‘Chalval’ is the wrong word being used for ‘agitation’ as it does not indicate a swift, speedy kind of action. However, for a half-dead country like ours it coincidentally suits. Whatever is decided in the Indian Congress meet for communicating to the British Government should not be regarded as “Resolutions” but in fact the “beggars’ cry for the alms". Alas! Had I have enough courage to drink liquor every day, I could have claimed myself to be a Sudharak. Paranjape again became active in politics during 1920 after the emergence of M. K. Gandhi on the Indian political orbit. In 1922, British authorities imprisoned Paranjape for six months for participation in a satyagraha at Mulshi under the leadership of Gandhi to oppose the proposed Mulshi Dam.

In 1927, he became President of the Maharashtra branch of the Indian Independence League formed by Jawaharlal Nehru, Subhashchandra Bose and Shrinivas Ayyangar. He suffered from diabetes for many years and died on 27 September 1929; the Biography of Shivram Mahadev Paranjpe by V. K. Paranjpe The Selected Essays from Kaal published by Y. G.

George III, Prince of Anhalt-Dessau

George III, Prince of Anhalt-Dessau, was a German prince of the House of Ascania and ruler of the principality of Anhalt-Dessau, a Protestant Reformer. After 1544 he became the first ruler of the principality of Anhalt-Plötzkau. George was the third son of Ernest I, Prince of Anhalt-Dessau, by his wife Margarete, daughter of Henry I, Duke of Münsterberg-Oels and granddaughter of George of Poděbrady, King of Bohemia, he was brought up with his brothers John V and Joachim I by his devout mother. After the death of his father in 1516, he inherited Anhalt-Dessau as a co-ruler with his brothers. With the assistance of his kinsman Adolph, the Bishop of Merseburg, George was elevated to the rank of Canon in that see in 1518, attended the University of Leipzig, where the theologian Georg Helt of Forchheim became his "highly beloved teacher." In 1524 Adolph consecrated George as a priest. That he might be better able to refute Lutheran beliefs, he made a thorough study of the Bible, the Church Fathers, church history.

The extreme emotional tensions and qualms of conscience into which his investigations brought him induced a violent illness that left its mark on him for the rest of his life. It was only after his mother's death. After the first Evangelical celebration of the Mass at Dessau, on Maundy Thursday in 1534, George visited the district churches, making the fewest possible changes in the church practises in accordance with his natural disposition and with Luther's acquiescence. In the interest of peace, he sought to deter Luther, in 1538, from publishing his tract "Against the Bishop of Magdeburg" and persuaded him in 1542 not to circulate his worded tract on the feud of Wurzen. In 1544 the protector of Merseburg Cathedral, Maurice of Saxony, appointed his brother Augustus as administrator, but because the latter was not a cleric, Maurice designated George as his "coadjutor in spiritual affairs." That year, his brothers decided to divide their principality of Anhalt-Dessau formally. In his new capacity as coadjutor, George forthwith proceeded, in company with Antonius Musa, just appointed cathedral preacher at Merseburg, to visit all of the cathedral parishes, exhibiting great patience, tactful discretion, forbearance.

He next conferred with Maurice in the matter of a prospective liturgy, which, in accordance with his suggestions and by virtue of the deliberations of the consistories of Merseburg and Meissen, was completed at Altenzelle in 1545. From on George convened the cathedral clergy twice a year to a synod in Merseburg Cathedral, on such occasions discoursed upon the questions and evils of the time, he based these conciones synodicae on outlines furnished to him by Melanchthon. Of the many sermons which he delivered in the cathedral, only a few have been preserved, they are distinguished by lucid exposition. When the Schmalkald War broke out in spite of his efforts to prevent it, George received under his roof the fugitive Camerarius and his family, he interceded for Jonas, who had incurred the anger of Maurice of Saxony, sought to restrain the clergy from "suspicious and frivolous words that might serve to cause discord." Although he "hated" the Augsburg Interim, he felt that he ought to lend a hand in the preparation of the Leipzig Interim, in order to preclude still worse results.

In 1549 the emperor's candidate Michael Heldingk was postulated by the chapter as Bishop of Merseburg. Until his arrival, George was to continue administering the diocese. To strengthen the Lutheran confession as as possible before the threatening storm, he now delivered his powerful sermons "On the False Prophets," and "On the Right Worthy Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ," which were directed both against Rome and Protestant religious fanatics. Afterward he retired to his estates in Anhalt. Traveling to Warmsdorf, he continued to preach there, when the occasion presented itself, he sought to mediate the Osiandrian dispute, he died unmarried after lingering sickness, Melanchthon composed his epitaph. His unfeigned piety and love of peace, his benevolence and freedom of service, all earned him the honorable epithet "devout" or "pious." His theology was that of Luther. His personal library has been preserved intact, is now part of the Anhaltische Landesbücherei at Dessau, along with an exhibition to honor his 500th birthday.
