• What Songs Taught Us #13 – Girl in the Mirror •
Song In Focus : Girl in the Mirror
Artist : Bebe Rexha
There is a perfect image set by the society – of your appearance / your looks / your behaviour – and you’ve to act according to it.
If you don’t fit the bill, you’re always anxious of your looks and that converts into constant thoughts in your mind – which tire you and weigh you down.
This song is a perfect example of this – it’s a song about self-acceptance – it tells you to be you, be yourself and stop trying to be like everyone else.
Songs are always inspirational, and if it teaches a good lesson along with some good music – then, go for it.
• What Songs Taught Us #12 – Believer •
Song In Focus : Believer
Artist : Imagine Dragons
Listening to the song makes you think that someone is sharing their story through the song, which may be true, but it definitely has a deeper meaning to it.
It portrays the pain in every person’s life and the experiences that one gets to learn from those pains.
Every experience makes you look at things differently, changes you a little, and at the same time, makes you better than before.
This doesn’t mean one should look for more pains in their lives, but it means that instead of looking at the negative aspects in those situations, look at the positive too – when if you wouldn’t have experienced that, you wouldn’t have learnt something at all.
Give it a listen and see whether you can relate to this lesson or not! #WhatSongsTaughtUs
• What Songs Taught Us #11 – Main Aisa Kyun Hoon •
Song In Focus : Main Aisa Kyun Hoon
Film : Lakshya
Most of us, in our daily lives, are asked what’s next, what’s the next step, what decision have you taken for the future!
Some hurriedly take a decision, some leave it up to others!
And then, there are some who don’t have an answer. They ask themselves, why are they like this? Why don’t they know what to do? Is something wrong with them? These are the questions they surround themselves with!
No one tells them its okay to not have the next step ready, it’s okay to take your time, it’s okay to not know everything right now!
You can be patient, maybe experiment with different things, become self aware of who you want to be, not to hurry with your future or even if you decide on something, it’s okay to change and decide something else later on!
People don’t say this stuff, may be even the song doesn’t convey this directly, but we would like to, through this post!
Are you able to relate with this?
• What Songs Taught Us #9 – Sick Boy •
Song In Focus : Sick Boy
Artist : The Chainsmokers
According to the artists, “Sick Boy” is a reflection of their generation and the struggles with finding identity on social media.
Drew said: “This song is kind about discovering your self-identity while living in a world where everyone posts everything they do and projects kind of a curated reality on Instagram. And that’s how we interact with one another.”
A lot of people front themselves on social media, and are living two identities, the real one and the virtual one. To garner followers and likes, they’ll portray any image they want to and post whatever gets them that engagement.
The wise thing is to beware of the fake ones and not be influenced by what they say. There are some authentic ones too, so it’s not all bad!
However, be self-aware and do what you’d like to, or want to, and not be influenced by someone else and form your own identity, at the end.
Don’t doubt yourself, and don’t anticipate people’s opinions on the actions you haven’t taken yet.
• What Songs Taught Us #8 – Fikar Not •
Song In Focus : Fikar Not
Film : Chhichhore
A beautiful, enthusiastic and soothing song about Life.
Life is short, then why do we keep worrying about the tiniest of things, why do we stress about the unnecessary stuff in our life?
This stress, this worrying has a negative impact mentally, and as the song says, you’ll die even before dying because of it.
Enjoy your life!
Enjoy your present!
Stop over thinking!
Stop stressing about the things that aren’t in your control!
Eat, drink and live, enjoy life because life’s short! ❤️
• What Songs Taught Us #7 – Kal Ho Na Ho •
Song: Kal Ho Na Ho
Artist: Sonu Nigam
With every breath we take, in every moment of our lives, there’s change.
Time is ticking!
Sometimes there’s light, sometimes there’s darkness – literally and metaphorically too.
So, every year, every month, every day, every hour, every minute, live life to the fullest because you don’t know whether there’s a tomorrow.
Live like today’s the last! ❤️
• What Songs Taught Us #6 – Wake Me Up •
Song In Focus : Wake Me Up
Artist : Avicii
The song, Wake Me Up, an Avicii classic is a beautiful rendition of a young, inexperienced soul wanting to live a happy life, wanting to just start, wanting to experience the journey, not caring about how the journey will end.
The young soul was living his dreams, not knowing he was lost, as told by the people around him, who persisted to take the safe path, to do safe things and not wander around.
People around him say that he is inexperienced, that there is a difference between life and dreams, that life will pass him by, filled with regrets of not settling down.
And the young, inexperienced soul wanting to live his dreams is fine by it, he is ready to take the chance, because in the end, he’s happy with the decisions he’s taking, and he wants to experience the life as is.
