A Sing Along Song

I’ve decided to do a music challenge I discovered at MindLovesMisery blog. It’s a 30 day music challenge. I’m not planning to do it in 30 days or in order. I find it’s easier and more fun to just post as I hear a song that fits any of the prompts and create a list under each post showing the prompts I’ve completed.

This week’s song cheers me up and makes me sing. Hope the song, and the video I found, puts a smile on your face and maybe makes you sing along, too. Enjoy!

Day 21: A song you sing along to every time you hear it:

Beauty in the World

by Macy Gray

“Beauty in th World”

I know you’re fed up
Life don’t let up for us
All they talk about is what is going down
And what’s been messed up for us

When I look around
I see blue skies
I see butterflies
For us

Listen to the sound
And lose it
In sweet music
And dance with me

‘Cause there is beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world
Always beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world

Shake your booty, boys and girls
For the beauty in the world
Pick your diamond, pick your pearl
There is beauty in the world

All together now

We need more loving
We need more money, they say
Change is gonna come like the weather
They say forever, they say

So baby, in between
Notice the blue skies
Notice the butterflies
Notice me

Stop and smell the flowers
And lose it
In sweet music
And dance with me

‘Cause there is beauty in the world
So much beauty in the world
Always beauty in the world
There is beauty in the world

So shake your booty, boys and girls
Yeah, beauty in the world
Pick your diamond, pick your pearl
‘Cause there is beauty in the world
All together now

Heya, throw your hands up and holler
Heya, throw your hands up and holler
When you don’t know what to do
Don’t know if you’ll make it through
Remember that He’s given you beauty in the world

So love
(Beauty in the world)
Yeah, love
(Beauty in the world)

There is beauty in the world
Beauty in the world

Shake your booty, boys and girls
(Boys and Girls)
All the beauty in the world
(Beauty in the world)

Pick your diamond, pick your pearl
(Pick your pearl)
There is beauty in the world
(Beauty in the world)

All together now
Yeah, love, yeah, love
Oh, love
All together now

Hey, baby, when I’m looking at you
I know this fact is true
There is hope for love
There is beauty in the world

Hey, baby
Hey, baby, when I’m looking at you
I know this fact is true
There’s love, there’s hope for love
There’s beauty in the world

I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
