Ni hao folks!
While you're probably amazed by my remarkable Mandarin skills (evidenced by today's greeting), we should really focus on today's track choice. When trying to decide on a song for today's Tunesday post, I came in thinking "I want to give them a chill laid back remix of something, music good for the end of the day."
That... is not what you're getting. Sometimes I just fall in love with a song, whether it's because of the vocals, music, or as it was in this case, the message. Glynne addresses an issue that most (if not all) people have or will experience, not being happy with some part of who they are or what they've done (or, conversely, who they're not, or things they haven't done), and masking that aspect of ourselves.
Have no fear, the song gets hugely encouraging as we get to the chorus with Glynne imploring listeners "Don't be so hard on yourself," with her declaring victoriously toward the end of the song "I learned how to wave goodbye, how to not see myself through someone else's eyes."
The song is one that is relatable and encouraging, things we definitely love here at OrangeMouth, so I couldn't not* share!
Until next time...
