Music Monday: You get what you give


To make up for the lack of blogging last week I'm doing two this week. Does it balance out my karma? Am I starting off June on the right foot? To try and trick myself out of my constant funk I've been listening to this 90's gem of a song. New Radicals. My memories of this song are entirely random... I know this song from the Scooby Doo: Monsters Unleashed movie. Bear with me here. It was used during a scene at end of the second act where the gang is down and out and in a hideout and Fred finds this picture of the gang when they were younger and reminisces about happier times *enter flashback and this song* and it gets them pumped and they defeat the monster so clearly this song works.


You've got the music in you. Don't let go.
You've got the music in you. One dance left.
This world is gonna pull through. Don't give up.
You've got a reason to live. Can't forget.
We only get what we give.

Don't let go, I feel the music in you.
Fly high, What's real can't die.
You only get what you give.
You're gonna get what you give (don't give up).
Just don't be afraid to live. 
I want to get "don't give up" and "don't be afraid to live" tattooed onto me. Yes I am guilty of wanting cliche script tattoos but if the constant reminders help my psyche then why not? It's just such an upbeat song saying things I really need to hear. I know that artists do jump on the inspirational song bandwagon like Like Katy Perry's Roar (I'm not saying it's a bad song, I love that song in all it's generic-ness). But this works so much better for me. I've been listening to it constantly on spotify on my commute to work. It gets me in a good frame of mind. I feel like Kimmy Schmidt and I just gotta get myself through small increments of the day and suddenly I've made it through the whole day. This song helps me through. Little moments I love in this song include when you hear the whisper of "fly" during the bridge and the secondary "mine" when he's holding the note for a very long time. I like noticing little stuff like that. Is this song giving you major flashbacks to your life in the 90s? What are your favourite uplifting songs?
