Music

Music has become such a big part of our lives, right now and in the past. Music can be a symbol for a generation or a period of our history. Take the Vietnam War and all of the songs that one would acciociate with that period of unrest like Jimi Hendrix. We use music everyday to fill time or enjoy it to relax. Music has the power to inspire us by its lyrics or enable us to go crazy on the dancefloor and sing along with thousands of people. For my song I chose You Never Know by Dave Matthews Band.
The reason I picked this song because I love its message on how to live life and let it not pass you by. I really conected to the words of this song especailly the chorus which says "But Rushing around seems whats wrong with the world-Don't lose the dreams inside your head-They'll only be there til you're dead-Dream" I love this quote because I think it is saying don't give up your integrety and goals in life just to do what society and other people want you to do. I think it is also saying never give up on your dreams and you should persue them to at least say you tried. I think this is a good motto to live by because life goes by quickly and you should live life to its fullest.
Another line I like says"Don't let the troubles in your head-Steal to much time-You'll soon be dead-So Play". I like this line because life will piss you off many times but you can't dwell on the bad times but have fun and forget about your troubles.

I posted the Lyrics below

you never know By: Dave Matthews Band

Sitting still as stone watching - watching
People walking by you wondering why
No one ever stops to talk or thinks about it – if they ever did
What if God shuffled by?

One day we might see
Doing not a thing
Breathing just to breathe
We might find some reason

But rushing around seems what’s wrong with the world
Don’t lose the dreams inside your head
They’ll only be there til you’re dead
Dream

Lying on the roof counting
The stars that fill the sky I wonder if
Someone in the heavens looking back down on me –
I’ll never know

So much space to believe
Funny when you’re small
The moon follows the car
There’s no one but you see
Hey, the moon is chasing me

I worried if I looked away she’d be gone
Don’t lose the dreams inside your head
They’ll only be there til you’re dead
Dream

Walking through the wood
No cares in the world
The world has come to play
She’s all mine just for a day

There’s not a moment to lose in the game
Don’t let the troubles in your head
Steal too much time you’ll soon be dead
So play

All fall down
It won’t be so long now
Out of the darkness comes light like a flash
You think you can you think you can
Sometimes that is the problem
Dream little darling dream

Spinning on the wind
The leaf fell from the limb

But everyday should be a good day to die
Oh all fall downIt won’t be too long now
Every fire dies
I find it hard to explain how I got here
I think I can I think I can
Then again I will falter
Dream little darling dream

Spinning on the wind
The leaf fell from the limb

I think the quotes you incorporated into your blog are exactly what life is and how it should be lived. A lot of people do not know exactly what their dreams are, but if they continue to live and amount to something in there life, then sometimes you stumble upon what they never knew existed for themselves.

Lovely song choice.
I really enjoyed the lyrics, leave it to Dave to remind us to keep our heads up. haha. But really, I like how the song speaks about living life to the fullest and not dwelling on the bad. As Daniel said, this is what life is and how it should be lived.

I totally agree with what you said. We will be dealing with challenges most of the time in our life and we are often troubled by them. But just to think about our past, we normally don't remember what was hard. So why bother worrying about them if they will pass eventually? Should just treasure time and enjoy it.

I really enjoyed ure song selection, this is my favorite D Matt song. I think we should all acknowledge the messages in this song and somehow try and incorporate them into our lives.
