#SLS for 10/4/20

The prompt today is No rules-go your own way and as tempted as I was to pick Fleetwood Mac, I went a different direction. I first heard the song “Brand New” Writer(s): David Hodges, Abe Stoklasa, Ben Rectorat at the start of our last employee meeting as we waited for our CEO to begin. They always pick such wonderful hold music for us to listen to while we gear up. I hope this song gets you as pepped up as it did for up to 30K strong.

I feel like new sunglasses, like a brand new pair of jeans
I feel like taking chances, I feel a lot like seventeen

I feel like windows rolled down, new city, streets and cabs
I feel like anything can happen, laughing,
You take me right back, when we were kids
Never thought I’d feel like this

Like when I close my eyes and don’t even care if anyone sees me dancing
Like I can fly, and don’t even think of touching the ground
Like a heartbeat skip, like an open page
Like a one way trip on an aeroplane
It’s the way that I feel when I’m with you, brand new
Brand new

I feel like a young John Cusack, like making big mistakes
I feel like for the first time in a long time I am not afraid
I feel like a kid, never thought it’d feel like this

Like when I close my eyes and don’t even care if anyone sees me dancing
Like I can fly, and don’t even think of touching the ground
Like a heartbeat skip, like an open page
Like a one way trip on an aeroplane
It’s the way that I feel when I’m with you, brand new

Time will always try to make us old
You remind me what I used to know

Like when I close my eyes and don’t even care if anyone sees me dancing
Like I can fly, and don’t even think of touching the ground
Like a heartbeat skip, like an open page
Like a one way trip on an aeroplane
It’s the way that I feel when I’m with you, brand new

Brand new, yeah, yeah, yeah
And I feel brand new
I feel brand new
I feel brand new

  1. This is a great motivation song for sure! It’s been a long time since I was at Six Flags over Texas. I think it has been since my sophomore year in high school. I remember when they built the Shock Wave which was the first loop to loop ever. I’m sure they have bigger and better ones now. πŸ™‚ Great video and song!

    1. I loved Six Flags over Texas. My last time there was Senior night in the summer of 1983. I always wanted to take the kids there but with Fiesta Texas in our backyard, we stayed close to home.
