The good life through song

September 28, 2007

Often times people will talk about the good life though song. Many times it is not the good life but rather the hardships that some people under go in their lives. Kanye West has a song called “Good Life”. This song speaks of the good life for a guy.  Helping his mother and meeting cute girl seems to be the character in the song’s version of the good life.  Helping people and living life to the fullest.

However Everlast’s song “What It’s Like” is a whole other story.  This song is the opposite of the good life it speaks of struggles and difficulties in people’s lives.  This is the opposite of anyone’s good life because it speaks of families losing their fathers from shootings and women being called a whore when they have to make the decision about getting an abortion.

Life sometime can be harsh but if we have a good life idea we may be able to change our lives and others for the best.
