Music Day - You Are Loved

Cheesy? Perhaps. Passionate? Absolutely. The Altar Boys have been especially noted for their passion. There's a sincerity in their voices that you don't hear in a lot of other music. And it has a tremendous effect with lyrics like these that so many need to hear...

Title: You Are Loved
Artist: Altar Boys
Album: Gut Level Music
Year: 1986
Label: Frontline Records

I often find myself setting this as my alarm in the morning. To wake up to words like this actually does put a brighter spin on my day. Never underestimate the power of passion and a sincere lyric (and punk rock). The harmony in the chorus is rather pretty too.

To all the hearts that have been broken
To all the dreamers with abandoned dreams
To everybody in need of a friend now
You are loved
You are loved
To all the rebels wounded in battle
To all the rockers that have lost that beat
To all the users all used up now
You are loved
You are loved...
