+1 for "where's the love". For people to like your performance, you need to be passionate about it. That's what makes a performance stand out. Then it doesn't need to be "perfect" as long as the audience is enjoying the atmosphere of the concert.

comment What does it mean to write a song in a certain key?
Additional note about slim's comment on the A7sus4: This is because the 3rd is replaced with the 4th (which is the definition of sus4 chords), and since the difference between major and minor is defined within the 3rd, the distinction is removed. It is often used to add tension to a chord progression, which is resolved by landing on the non-sus4 version of the chord.

This answer is great, and spot on for all the aspects of the question. I was thinking that something was missing in the previous answers. This answer completed it.

comment What does it mean to write a song in a certain key?
Just to clarify: Not all songs start on the base key note, although it is quite common (and it is so for "Yankee Doodle" in this example). It is even more common that a song ends on the base key note (again not always, but very common).

32 seconds was just a way of saying a short time. The number was picked quite randomly.

comment Is there some symbolic meaning to breaking all the instruments during or at the end of your music video?
I think "artistic expression" and "gimmick" is just two different ways of describing the same thing. It is certainly used in different context, but both describe basically the same concept in different forms. You may say that "artistic expression" is a fancy and maybe more sophisticated expression for "gimmick".
