I’m not sure how many times I heard this song on the radio before I started singing along with it, but I do recall turning back and singing it at my sons while sitting at a red light. It was at that point that I needed to figure out who sung it.
After finally googling the lyrics, I found The Struts and was able to get the song into my collection. And now I can belt it out while driving on the highway on the way to and from work. It’s a great anthem about not taking life for granted (which the officially video completely swings and misses on, and has a 2-minute “hangover” intro, so you get the audio-only version above).
I may view “living life to it’s fullest” differently than the band, but nonetheless find a connection to. A life worth living takes you through the full cycle of emotions, and it’s important to embrace that as we look at our future choices rather than look back and dwell on the past.
And if I ever find this song for karaoke, I apologize in advance…
