I’m a big fan of music. I LOVE Music and attending live concerts. Needless to say, it gets quite interesting when I have my 7 and 4 year old in the car. We listen to everything from Disney kids music to country, classic rock and pop culture mainstream music which my son is now getting into. When I am by myself in the car I usually listen to audio cds, but since the kids aren’t into this just yet – I get music time then.
Recently, while listening to one of the “teen” type music stations a song came on called Firework by Katy Perry. Now, I am not a Katy Perry fan per se. The first time I heard this song was on the TV show glee when Rachel performed it and it was good. With radio songs I specifically listen to lyrics because there are songs that are not appropriate for my children, even if they don’t “get it” yet when it comes to the words said. No need for subliminal messages 🙂
Anyway, I found the lyrics to Firework to be quite motivational in the chorus. Katy sings about going through bad stuff and picking yourself up to show the world what you’ve got and to let your light shine.
I felt this was inspirational and motivational and wanted to share it here. It is an upbeat song (give or take a few words here and there) and if you crank it up it just seems to put you in a good mood.
Since I love to crank up the tunes, one of my favorite things to do on the weekend or when I am by myself is to put on my U2 Joshua Tree CD and rock out while I’m cleaning the house brings me right back to being a teenager and many happy memories.
How does music play a role in your life? And let me know what you think of the song!
