A few months after the song was released I was driving around Hollywood and the song came on the radio. I heard the lyrics:
"...So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways, all my underdogs
We will never be (never be)anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks
Won't you come on (come on) and raise your glass
Just come on and come on and raise your glass..."
And my eyes welled up. I felt so empowered. No matter who you are or where you have been we have all felt like the underdog at some point in our lives. The song is so powerful to me because it's upbeat. For me it reminded me of where I had been and where I was going. We all need a song that pumps us up and give us strength through certain points in our lives. As I work on one of the biggest projects I've ever tackled, I wake up to that song every morning to remind myself of how far I have come.
What's your song?
