15* Best day of my life

Welcome American Authors” straight from New York City!

An indie rock band who also incorporates elements of folk and pop in their music (:

Today’s song is one of their 2 most famous singles and is from their album “Oh, what a life”

It can be a really inspiring song or a really drug based inspired… anyway the lyrics are SO original, funny and with a childish tune that takes you back to a) your childhood when you felt like you could fly b) the nights you were so drunk or high that you also felt like you could fly. See what they did there? It’s completely adaptable to your point of view or previous experiences (lol)

Yeah..

An epiphany is a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something.

 

I found a total epiphany…

In their rhythm, the clear sound of the instruments, the “oh oh” background chorus, the raspy voice of the main vocalist,

and in their official music video where I couln’t help but falling for the monster in it:,)

especially when is dancing in his seat at the “table dance” and half a minute later is silly playing at the park.

I found a crazy meaning out of it, the insight that perhaps there’s no such a thing like changing, we will always be the same kids we were one day but fighting different situations and may be dreaming higher or lower but never ceasing to dream.

 

And today’s lyrics:

I had a dream so big and loud 
I jumped so high I touched the clouds 

I stretched my hands out to the sky 
We danced with monsters through the night 

I’m never gonna look back 
Woah, never gonna give it up 
No, please don’t wake me now 


This is gonna be the best day of my life 
(…)

I howled at the moon with friends 
And then the sun came crashing in 

But all the possibilities 
No limits just epiphanies 

(…)

I hear it calling outside my window 
I feel it in my soul
The stars were burning so bright 
The sun was out ’til midnight 
I say we lose control

(…)
Everything is looking up, everybody up now 
This is gonna be the best day of my life

P.S. I need to clear out that posting a daily song is a really enjoyable part of my day and even though it’s a lot of work (and time) I love it and I’ve been doing it every day without missing any for 2 weeks now, but the dates in my blog are a little messed up and I just realized that for some unexplainable reason my wordpress is 6 hours ahead of my actual schedule so if I post something at 9pm today it appears inmediatly but with tomorrow’s date! Because being 6 hrs ahead means that it is “3am of tomorrow” … sigh
