We Got The Power
Today we’re listening to “We Got The Power” by Gorillaz
It’s Friday, so we’re going with something a little lighter today.
Feeling wistful? Same.
Want a banger with thundering rhythm that makes even the stock stereo in an ‘07 Outback sound good? Here ya go.
And in the hellscape that 2022 often is, sometimes you just want to hear a feel good track. Not just literally, like this dopamine hit, but in a broader sense. Something airy & hopeful all at once.
In a world where almost everything feels out of our control, a track like “We Got the Power” is a good reminder that we can fix things. We just have to want to.
Have a great weekend. See you Monday!
