La La Land truly is a masterpiece. It is passionate, endearing and inspiring, but its music is the highlight. Below are some lines from the original soundtrack that have impacted me the most.
1. Another Day of Sun
“Climb these hills
I’m reaching for the heights
And chasing all the lights that shine
And when they let you down
You’ll get up off the ground
‘Cause morning rolls around
And it’s another day of sun”
This verse has rekindled my desire to chase my dreams, to not succumb to failure and rejection 🔥.
2. Someone in the Crowd
“Is someone in the crowd the only thing you really see?
Watching while the world keeps spinning ’round?
Somewhere there’s a place where I find who I’m gonna be
A somewhere that’s just waiting to be found”
I guess it is more important to actualize oneself than to put our future in someone else’s hands 👐.
3. City of Stars
“A look in somebody’s eyes
To light up the skies
To open the world and send it reeling
A voice that says, I’ll be here
And you’ll be alright”
Well, love is the most powerful force ❤️.
4. Audition (The Fools Who Dream)
“So bring on the rebels
The ripples from pebbles
The painters, and poets, and plays
And here’s to the fools who dream
Crazy as they may seem
Here’s to the hearts that break
Here’s to the mess we make”
It’s okay to be different, maybe that’s what makes you beautiful. It’s okay to dream, maybe it will turn into reality someday 🌟.
