Music Saturday

I’m sure many of you can relate when I say that music moves me. Ever since I was little I’ve loved listening to music. I’m not blessed with any type of musical talent – can’t play an instrument, and certainly can’t carry a tune although I belt them out anyway. If it makes me feel good, who cares that it doesn’t sound good, right?

I love music of all genres. I’m always switching up my playlist.  Hubby never knows what will be blasting through the house when he walks in the door. Pop, 70’s tunes, Christian/Gospel, Country, Alternative, Soul, Jazz, Reggae….there’s just So. Much. Good. Music!

For a fun post, I thought I would occasionally share a song here that I find uplifting, or gets me dancing, or makes me feel good. Saturday is a good day to share music – it will add a special lift to your weekend. 🙂

And this week’s choice? “I Wanna Go Back” by David Dunn. This is a new to me song I just discovered a few days ago. It speaks to me. Like, really speaks to me. It takes me back to a simpler time, before all the struggles I’ve faced as an adult. It reminds me to take a deep breath during those tough times – things will be alright.

This song is so much fun to sing along to, and it’s addictive! I had to stop listening to it on Thursday – I was singing waaay too much and not getting any of my work done.

I also love the video. The artist did a great job with it. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Here’s the link to the official video. I’ve added the lyrics below.

David Dunn – I Wanna Go Back Lyrics
From the album Yellow Balloons

When I was a kid
I was sure
I could run across the ocean
And I was gonna be an astronaut

When it was You and it was me
I had everything I needed
Faith could even move a mountain top

And then I grew up
And then I got older
Then my life got tough
And we grew apart

I wanna go back
To Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me
For the Bible tells me so
I wanna go back
To this little light
Gonna let it shine
Gonna let it shine
I wanna go back

When I was a kid
I didn’t care to keep up with the Jones’s
I was just happy that they lived next door

When it was You and it was me
I had everything I needed
Your hands were big enough to hold the world

And then I grew up
And then I got older
Then my life got tough
And we grew apart

I wanna go back
To Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me
For the Bible tells me so
I wanna go back
To this little light
Gonna let it shine
Gonna let it shine
I wanna go back

I wanna go back, back to
Yes, Jesus loves me

Do you have a song that you love to listen to right now? If so, I’d love if you shared it in the comments!

    I go from one extreme to the other. Depending on my mood i either listen to Heavy Metal/Rock or classical/choral music

  2. I sometimes get pulled down into the mire when I choose the wrong music – Matt Redman’s 10,000 Reasons gets my heart and mind going in the right direction ☺

    I love that song. My daughter played the vid for me the other day. I love to listen to anything by Owl City, especially Fireflies.
