Rejection Playlist Volume 1, Track 7: “Hold On”

Last week’s song “Hold On” by Alabama Shakes reminded me of this 1980’s gem by Wilson Phillips, which is wicked inspirational. “No one can change your life except for you/ don’t ever let anyone step all over you.” In case you need the reminder:

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
Hold on for one more day

You could sustain
Or are you comfortable with the pain?
You’ve got no one to blame for your unhappiness
You got yourself into your own mess
Lettin’ your worries pass you by
Don’t you think it’s worth your time
To change your mind?

This video has it all: vests, mountains, oceans, and powerwalking

 

You don’t have to hold on forever, just one more day.
