Because everyone has the right to be truly free and happy
The Day Brightener Soundtrack would not be complete without this U2 song – Beautiful Day.
While it is a great, uplifting tune, it also has a wonderful message. According to Bono the song is about, “a man who has lost everything, but finds joy in what he still has.”
As a young man, music was an immense source of joy and inspiration for Bono. Specifically, the music of John Lennon provided a life-changing perspective, with Bono reflecting that:
“This music changed the shape of the room. It changed the shape of the world outside the room; the way you looked out the window and what you were looking at.”
His personal experience with the transformational effects of music caused him to comment years later that:
“Music can change the world because it can change people”
For this reason, the Day Brightener compilation is such a wonderful project for me. We are getting a fantastic collection of uplifting songs, and stay tuned for many more. Perhaps some John Lennon? In the meantime, I hope that this song brings a little beauty to your day!
Remember that all the songs featured on the blog are compiled on the Music of the Day Brightener page.
