The Districts- “4th and Roebling”

Fair warning- this song is WEIRD. It’s kinda acousticish and I can’t understand what the singer is saying pretty much the entire time. But still, it’s GREAT. Another free song off iTunes, “4th and Roebling” is one to remember.

Driven by a chorus that seems to tell people that they shouldn’t change for anyone (which is totally just my interpretation), I really relate to this song. There is NO ONE out there who should make you change who you are (unless you really want to), you are you- no matter how people may feel about you, there is NO REASON to change who you are. As my favorite line from the Help goes, “You is beautiful, you is kind, you is important.” YOU ARE AMAZING JUST THE WAY YOU ARE. Today in yearbook class I was approached by a person who loves more than one gender. This person had just been talking to another very religious person in our class and felt that he/ she would not be accepted by God because he/ she is gay. Although some might not agree, you will always be loved by God and you will always be accepted by Him.

Sorry for rambling, it’s hard to get my words out about this song- it’s just so moving to me. Main point: you are AMAZING just the way you are (thank you Bruno Mars for putting that into a song).


Brooke Fraser- “Kings and Queens”

Hey bloggers! Been a long time since I last posted, I have been SUPER busy with yearbook and my really difficult US History class… no excuses though- I’ll try harder to blog more. SO iTunes has really been sweet this month, every time I log onto it, I find more free music! All of the songs they are giving away are good but I think this one really stands out. Especially to me. The past two months have been a little depressing for me… I broke up with my boyfriend of two years and am struggling as I aim to attend a private, super prestigious university (which means EXTREMELY HIGH test scores that I currently have almost no chance of achieving, I’m trying though). Anyways, as soon as I heard this song I felt something- I felt like smiling, like having a little fun and dancing around my room 🙂 Of course, being a Sunday morning the most fun thing I could do was go to a kickboxing class at my gym (which was ROCKIN). As the song puts it “We’ve got a long to go but we got the energy, It took a little while to find reality, We’ve come a long way you know, living inside a dream, Waking to find that we are kings and queens.” I am seriously in love with this song, it makes one feel AMAZING. If you have the time, listen in and tell me what you think 🙂
