IF YOU’RE on the look out for a new song or band to listen to on this very wet and dank day, then look no further than this, dare I say it, gem from the band, First Aid Kit.
This weeks ‘Song of the Week’ is ‘My Silver Lining’ which comes from the two Swedish sisters Johanna & Klara Söderberg that make up the band.
Most people will definitely have heard this song before, it was uploaded to YouTube in May of 2014 and has since garnered over 9 million views.
Not bad at all.
It is one that I happened to come across for the first time this past Saturday night when surfing through the radio in the car, and by Jove, I’m certainly delighted that I did.
I’m by no means an expert on music, but I just absolutely loved the upbeat feel of the song and the positive lyrics throughout, most notably the lines:
“Can’t worry ’bout what’s behind you or what’s coming for you further up the road.
I try not to hold on to what is gone, I try to do right what is wrong. I try to keep on keeping on, yeah I just keep on keeping on,”
Powerful and universal words right there and ones that stuck with me until I finally got home and had the chance to google them, my best decision of the week, I would argue.
They’re a band that you should check out more of, especially their songs ‘Wolf’ and ‘The Lions Roar’.
Enough rambling by me though, check out the song in the video below.
