I wanted to share this video of YellowTieGuy performing a remote “live” version of “Stronger Than I” from our 2016 release Play On Words. At the time of this writing, we have received nearly 600 organic views of this socially/physically distant performance, and for that we are truly thankful. We hope it spreads some hope and joy to you during this tumultuous time. Here’s what I have to say about the song’s meaning (Spoilers), but what does this song mean to you? We would love to hear your thoughts.
“The song is a reflection of the weight caused by anxiety, at least personally, in questioning my ability to live up to my own potential or the potential that others see in me. In many ways the song is a request for the listener to find someone else to lift up, someone else to be placed on a pedestal, and even to find someone else to ‘believe in’ because of my own doubts towards my personal capabilities. Although, there is a glimmer of recognition towards future achievement: ‘Until I become the hero of your dreams, is there no one stronger than me? Stronger than I am?'”
