If you’ve ever been disappointed by something, try listening to inspirational songs about trying again. Here are some examples: “Starting Over” by John Lennon; Bob Rector’s “In the Name of Love”; Christina Perry’s “Burning Gold”; and Shakira’s “Keep Your Head Up.”
John Lennon’s “Starting Over”
Despite the tragic circumstances surrounding his death, John Lennon’s “Startng Over” remains one of the most popular songs of all time. It was recorded in 1980 and was the last single to be released by the Fab Four. Although it was not particularly popular before Lennon was murdered, it became a huge hit after his death. Billboard included it in their list of influential songs of all time and it peaked at number 62 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
“Starting Over” has received a remastered version on iTunes and the album will be released on 8 October 2010. In addition to the remastered album, iTunes will be releasing a remix of “(Just Like) Starting Over” as a free download.
While the song doesn’t have a particularly deep meaning, the opening line of “Our life together” has a tragic weight when taken in context. Even the word “together” is used twice in the same line – “forever,” “eternity,” and “life together.” While this opening line isn’t particularly uplifting, it reflects Lennon’s own personal struggle and the loss of his beloved wife Yoko Ono.
In addition to “Starting Over,” John Lennon’s “Staring Over” is the most famous song by a member of the Beatles. It was recorded at a time when many of the band members were aging and living in different circumstances, and John Lennon felt that the public had stopped caring about him. It’s also important to note that the song’s release was a major achievement, considering the circumstances of his life.
Christina Perry’s “Burning Gold”
Christina Perry’s new music video, ‘Burning Gold,’ premiered today. The retro-styled video is reminiscent of ’60s girl groups and features bright lights and old-school Hollywood glam. It will debut on VH1’s Top 20 Video Countdown.
Perry remarked that she was at a “gnarly point” in her career when she almost didn’t record the song. However, her manager insisted that she meet with the songwriter, Harpoon. The two subsequently collaborated on the song. The collaboration occurred in just 20 minutes, beginning at four in the morning.
Burning Gold is Christina Perri’s second single from her album Head or Heart. It is about a young woman who falls in love with a famous singer who hired her. Unfortunately, her life is destined to be a disappointment. However, she is given the opportunity to change her life. The singer realizes her talent and hires her as her backup singer.
Shakira’s “Keep Your Head Up”
If you’ve ever felt discouraged, Shakira’s “Keep Your Head up” will lift your spirits. The uplifting track is about not giving up no matter what the odds are. She has traveled the world, but she’s never met someone with eyes like yours. “Keep Your Head Up” was written to uplift and inspire others.
Bob Marley’s “Fight Song”
Bob Marley’s “Fight Song,” a 1978 single by his Jamaican band The Wailers, is a powerful anthem of black struggle and resistance against oppression. Marley was inspired by the story of a Civil War-era black soldier who was ordered to fight Native Americans in the West. He was struck by the irony of black men fighting another oppressed race. The chanting hook at the chorus also recalls a song by the Banana Splits from 1968, “The Tra-La-La Song.” However, Marley never acknowledged the song’s connection to Banana Splits.
Bob Marley’s “Fight Song,” like many of his other songs, reflected the world’s political problems. The lyrics focus on inequality and poverty and the tension between the rich and the poor. The Rastafarian faith and the struggle of the people in the African continent are also prominent themes. In “Revolution,” Marley sings that “never make a politician grant you a favor, until the philosophy that one race is superior to others is discredited.”
Bob Marley rewrote the Buffalo Soldiers’ story for his song. The Buffalo Soldiers were brought from Africa and fought for their survival, a cause that is still relevant today. The song is an anthem of freedom, equality, and resistance. It’s an anthem that is both inspiring and motivational.
The song’s lyrics are rooted in Bob Marley’s experiences as a man in the streets of Jamaica, which is the subject of this song. It was written with the help of Peter Tosh and was influenced by Marley’s Jamaican upbringing. The song also draws on War’s song Slippin’ Into Darkness. As a result, Marley and the Wailers were criticised for going “soft” and recording songs about marijuana and love.
