Question to the Phuthu Girls this week:
What song best describes your life motto?
The song that best describes my way of thinking is ‘I’m Yours’ by Jason Mraz, It’s a very happy-go-lucky kind of song that seems to instil in its listeners the need to love as much as you can. Don’t make your life a mine-field of complications. Simplify it, by living it. Peace Man!!
Lyrics: I’m Yours by Jason Mraz
Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and then you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people, dance and sing
We’re just one big family
And it’s our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved
It’s not my favourite song but the first one that popped up and a real golden oldie that I always used to sing when life wasn’t working with me. It sort of sums up the way I do life - I’m on a mission and nothing’s gonna stop me from doing what I gotta do and living the life I chose. I apologise for making you watch the music video.. eish. She’s very old and straight from the 80′s! Watch it when you need some cheering up (check out those dancers, baby!).
Lyrics: Break my Stride by Matthew Wilder:
Ain’t nothin’ gonna to break my stride
Nobody’s gonna slow me down, oh-no
I got to keep on movin’
Ain’t nothin’ gonna break my stride
I’m running and I won’t touch ground
Oh-no, I got to keep on movin’
Pick a favourite song with lyrics that represent your attitude to life.
Houston,we have a problem!
Did you Rodger that? Over.
I’m one of those people who loves music but half the time doesn’t know who’s singing a fab tune on the radio, hasn’t the foggiest idea what the name of the song is and lastly, pays little attention to the lyrics.
But after a bit of thought, I made my choice. It was tough. It’s one of the greatest hits of all time but it’s instrumental. I hope that still counts. Obviously there are no verses to pinpoint and I think it’s quite apt taking the above into account. I don’t know if I could ever pinpoint a verse that describes my life motto – I’ve got a lot of mottos and so I would be doing a lot of pinpointing! It could turn into a thesis.
When I listen to this song, it full’s me with love and a few tears at the same time – the tears because it’s so beautiful.…just as life is.
