We Are Young February 21, 2012

I haven’t written anything in ages! Quite sorry. So, the reason I’m writing today is that you need to know about a song, similar to the post I wrote about Dog Days Are Over. The song today: We Are Young, by Fun. featuring Janelle Monae. I had seen the name of the song before, on the Top Lists playlist on Spotify,  but had never actually heard it. So I decided to listen to it. And I was in love. The very first time listening to it, I was almost in awe; the song starts out rather quiet and toned-down, but soon turns into this amazing, inspiring sound. It’s powerful, the type of song one might hear at the end of an awesome film. It makes me feel happy and encouraged, rather the same way that Shake It Out (by Florence + the Machine) does.

I could (and I do!) sit at my computer with my headphones in, the sound turned up all the way, and listen to We Are Young over and over again. It’s THAT good.

So. Go listen to it. And tell me what you think!

Tonight we are young

So let’s set the world on fire

We can burn brighter than the sun

    This song has been stuck in my head for the longest time. Have you heard “Some Nights” by fun.?
