Friends we have made it! #JAMpackedholiday Day Thirty One wraps up this whole passion project of mine and I want to say thank you to each and every one of you! It was so rewarding seeing people join in on the excitement. Massive props to Kate on participating every day. She kept me on top of things and I look forward to collaborating with her in the future.
Can you believe today marks the end of 2015? When I was thinking about songs for today I wanted to ring the new year in right. For 2016 I want variety, adventure, and memories. What better song than “Wonder” by Emeli Sandé. (Technically it’s probably a Naughty Boy song, but for as good of a producer as he can be I really really REALLY dislike Naughty Boy – that’s putting it nicely. Plus, it’s Sandé’s vocals featured and on her album, so I’m just going to ignore that it’s not completely her song.)
One of Sandé’s most upbeat songs on her debut album was “Wonder.” It follows the formula of a rich melodic song that is both packed with a touch of retro soul and today’s best pop beats. “Wonder” has a baseline in hymnal composition from the piano that roots it.
A song that reminds us that although we often get down in our lives, “Wonder” reminds us we have this whole world of amazing things around us to witness. It focuses on the message that although we get down in our lives, we have this whole world of amazing things around us to witness. Each day every one of us must continue to wonder and find the joys in everything.
Here’s to 2016 being a hopefully great year! May we each follow our own version of wonder.
What are your hopes for 2016?
Until next time,
