Ever had one?
Go on and admit it… surely at least once you’ve had a dance party for one? Everyone has that one song that hits deep, that song that when you pump up high and you let your body flow with it… it releases something inside you, something that you won’t understand unless you try it.
Ah none other than You Gotta Be by Des’ree, yeah all 90s and not so rock infused but alas my song.
It’s a 20 year tradition that will continue till the day I die. Go on you know you want to give it a try!
It’s a solo activity though unless you have someone you don’t mind letting it loose with that is…
I honestly wouldn’t be who I am today without them. I’d be a shell of a human, one filled to the brim with stress and hauntings of years past.
The song was a hit during one of the hardest years of my life when I found myself alone in the world… too young to be as I was, it gave me strength.
You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
Close your eyes and let the music flow through you, let the other sounds drown away and let your body move like no one is watching (because they shouldn’t be!!!)
