A good listen for your Monday work beats selection.
The first time I learned about this great band.
One of these songs I have listend to for years but missed the last lyric of the song. The last lyric changed my entire past of how I thought about this song… and now this old jam is a new jam for me. And I love it!
An awesome day for one of my theme playlists.
As the World Turns….
If we could shrink the earth’s population to a village of precisely 100 people with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following. There would be:
14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south
8 would be Africans
52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be non-white
30 would be white
70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59% of the entire world’s wealth, and all
6 would be from the United States
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
One would be near death
One would be near birth
One (yes, only 1) would have a college education
One (yes, only 1) would own a computer
When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding, and education becomes glaringly apparent.
If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead, and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.
If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed than 3 billion people in the world.
If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.
If your parents are still alive and still married, you are very rare, even in the United States.
If you can hold someone’s hand, hug them, or even touch them on the shoulder, you are blessed because you can offer healing touch.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.
As you read this and are reminded how life is in the rest of the world, remember just how fortunate you really are!
This is the actuall vocal minus Avicii rising to fame with his vocal. I am tired of DJ’s sampling vocals that MAKE the song and no one knows the vocal. This is what made Avicii huge!
GOOD MORNING AMERICA! Let’s start this Friday off right! Crank this up! It is better than coffee!!
My Monday morning coffee. My eff you to the political world ;)
Starting off my week playing catch up, even after working through the weekend to catch up. This is the tune that mellows out the morning and kick starts the week. Build Epic ya’all.
I love the lyrics of this song so much. It is up there in my top 10 songs.
