So much of what we hear on the radio today is music filled with lyrics about how horrible life can be. You don’t have to listen very long to hear about “bad days” and how “life sucks.” Regardless of the genre it seems like the airwaves, iTunes and music stores are filled with anthems about frustration, loss, and indifference. It’s all about the worthlessness of life.
Recently, I came across a different kind of song named “Wonderful” by the artist Gary Go. It’s a new kind of anthem, and it speaks about a new way of looking at life. Part of the lyrics read:
If what you’ve lost cannot be found And the weight of the world weighs you down No longer with the will to fly You stop to let it pass you by Don’t stop to let it pass you by You gotta look yourself in the eye Say, “I am” Say, “I am” Say, “I am wonderful” Oh you are.
It’s a great song to listen to, and can be a wonderful pick me up. Don’t get me wrong, I love all kinds of music and have one of the most extensive and eclectic iTunes libraries you’ll find out there. But in the middle of all the stuff that can sometimes be a downer, it’s nice to have Gary Go to remind me that I am “Wonderful.”
Here’s a video of the entire song. Enjoy!
