Musical Monday: Life is a Highway by Tom Cochran

Life is a Highway is one of my favorite songs to listen to while running.  I just love it.  The Silver Lining is that it always reminds me of Lightening McQueen in Cars, one of my favorite Silver Lined movies that I watched with Suddenly Seven when I was sick.

The lyrics feel really wonderfully symbolic to me, especially if you’ve been confronted with f-bombs of any kind (and really, who hasn’t?). I really couldn’t agree more that:

Life’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There’s a world outside every darkened Door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar

I hope that this song puts a little bounce in your step in the same way that it does for me!
