The Wisdom of Superchick

I just got the new Superchick CD Beauty from Pain. This is their fourth release from InPop records. (Love InPop! They keep producing the coolest stuff.)

I ripped it to my media player and it has been going all morning.

This is one of my favorite groups, not only for their sound, but also for their lyrics. Granted their target audience is much younger than me (sigh), but their songs are always encouraging and energizing with sound bytes that hit me later--when my media player is turned off--at incredibly appropriate times.

From the song, Courage... "I need you to know, I'm not through the night. Some days I'm still fighting to walk towards the light."

From Anthem...."Here's to the girls on their boards with bruises and scars. Here's to the girls whose fingers bleed from playing guitar. Here's to anyone who never quit when things got hard. You'll never let them say, "You'll never get that far."

From It's On..."And no matter how you feel, It's what you do that matters..."

And, from my favorite, the title track... "Here and I am at the end of me; trying to hold to what I can't see. I forgot how to hope; this night's been so long. I cling to your promise there will be a dawn."

So, for the rest of the day, if you see me with black wires trailing from my ears, you'll know what's going on behind them. Rock on!
