My Favorite Lyrics From My Favorite Artist: Stray Kids Edition
Start writing a post

I believe that music is one of the most powerful things in the world. From the sound to the lyrics, music can convey any emotion and touch someone personally.

Music is also universal. Anybody, anywhere can enjoy and appreciate all types of music. I think sometimes people forget that music has the ability to bring people of every background together, but it is a fact that should be remembered.

For me, lyrics are a huge part of any song because I like to understand what the artist is trying to say through their music and possibly establish a connection between myself and the lyrics.

My favorite artist is a group called Stray Kids. They hold a great amount of significance in my life for a number of reasons, but their lyrics are a huge component of why I love them so much.

Before I jump into my favorite lyrics from them, I think some background on the group would be helpful. If you don't know who Stray Kids are, they are a South Korean boy group that was formed by the leader of the group, Bang Chan, rather than by JYP Entertainment, the company they are managed under.

The members produce and write all of their music, which makes the lyrics even more special to me personally. Their writing/producing sub-unit is called 3RACHA, and they are involved in creating the lyrics for all of the group's songs. I love that they play such a major role in the creative process because it makes their songs even more meaningful.

Even though Stray Kids fall under the K-Pop genre, they have many different sounds in their discography. From fun and playful to deep and serious, they are capable of adapting to various styles of music.

Accompanying their choice of sound comes meaningful lyrics, and listed below are some of my favorites from them. Side note: Their songs are in Korean, so I'm writing the translated English lyrics.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
