In a recent post Karen talks about songs with an empowerment message. She liked the words "suddenly I see".
Do words from songs ever jump out and speak to you? Some lines or phrases from songs have inspired whole campaigns. Like the "Beautiful Like a Rainbow" song that inspired the Dove campaign and a whole host of websites like this scrap one.
For a few months now powerful lines from two popular songs have really leapt out at me. One I love is from Maroon Five's 'She will be loved' - the lines go...
"It's not always rainbows and butterflies. It's compromise that moves us along."
And then there's "What have you done today to make you feel proud?" by Heather Small.
I got to know her song with that amazing line when it was used as the theme song for TV show The Biggest Loser. But it also became the official soundtrack for London's 2012 Olympic bid. In 2005 Heather made her US television debut performing Proud and then Oprah named it the new theme toher show. But for me it's enough to pull my socks up and get me on with that weight loss/exercise journey whenever I hear it.
So what song words or phrases inspire you?
