#TBT Wilson Phillips – Hold On

Occasionally, I’ll feature an old song in honor of the internet’s favorite meme #tbt (throwback thursday.) Hold On is my go to song for motivation and inspiration and I will crank the volume on this one when I need a boost. Lyrics are below and speak for themselves.

I know there is pain (I know there is pain, I know there is pain (echo))
Why do lock yourself up in these chains? (these chains, these chains (echo))
No one can change your life except for you
Don’t ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind, mmm
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?

Ooh some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you gonna let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things’ll go your way
Hold on for one more day (one more day)

You could sustain (you could sustain , you could sustain (echo))
Mmm or are you comfortable with the pain?
You’ve got no one to blame for your unhappiness (no baby)
You got yourself into your own mess (ooooooo)
Lettin’ your worries pass you by (lettin’ your worries pass you by)
Baby don’t you think it’s worth your time
To change your mind?

Noo noo, some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things’ll go your way (oh things’ll go your way)
Hold on for one more day

Breakdown

I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day
And you break free from the chains
Yeah I know that there is pain
But you hold for one more day
And you break free right from the chains

Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye (and say goodbye)
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know (no) things can change (no)
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day, yeah
Can you hold on

Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on
Can you hold on
Mmm… Can you hold on baby
Won’t you tell me now
Hold on for one more day
Cause it’s gonna go away

Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day yeah
Can’t you change it this time
Make up your mind
Hold on Hold on
Hold on Hold on, baby hold on
Turn around, Just turn around baby
Hold on for one more day, Cause
It’s gonna go your way

Best 11 songs of 2014

Every music blog or website makes end of the year Best Songs of that year lists. Since I’m a tad late to the party, I’d love to share my list of best 11 songs of last year in no particular order.

I actually created this as a SoundCloud playlist in June 2014 as “Songs of Summer” – my prediction of what indie music lovers would be listening to. And so it becomes my end of the year best of list.

The featured photo is Logan and Veronica from the best TV show ever “Veronica Mars” which ran for 3 seasons on the CW.

What you think of my picks? What were some of your favorite songs of 2014?
