"I'm glad I did it all,now I know what I ain't missing"
-My Morning Jacket
It's rare that a song can capture that primal essence of curiosity we all experience from time to time. My Morning Jacket's "Outta My System" speaks to the souls of many. How many people wish they could go back and do something all over? There are not many people that step out of their comfort zone and truly live to full potential. This isn't the case for My Morning Jacket.
As we Unhinge the song, you can see the deep-rooted essence of Life flowing through the lyrics
coupled with an excellent array of musical talent. Life can be so challenging sometimes as we create our own prisons and move about like mice within the confines that others set for us. Stepping out to try and do exactly what you feel takes great courage. Fear is something that stifles most folks dreams before they even lift off the ground. Just imagine getting those urges outta of your system that you keep repressed, malnourished and under lock-n-key.
Now we don't want you going all Dahmer on us, but just hear it out. If you really attacked your passions and interests with the energy that you end up wasting doing things you don't enjoy, How much happier would you be? Imagine in the long run being able to say that you've experienced life as you saw fit. Win or lose, it's your choice. This is the mindset of MMJ's song and this is the reason it was selected. Stop wasting time and START LIVING!
From the beginning of the song to the end, Morning Jacket captures the essence of what it means to be human. We all go through trials and tribulations, we succeed and we lose, but you will always lose if you never try. This is an empowering song, a motivating song- great piece of music if you ask me. So what's in your system just waiting to be unleashed? Do you have a desire? A dream that you would love to paint within your life?
My Morning Jacket was first introduced to me on VH1 storytellers, great show by the way. I was blown away by their old school sound of the 70's which was oddly created during the late 90's, early 2000. The band's mouthpiece is a man by the name of James Olliges, Jr aka Jim James who is a -multi-talented guitarist and songwriter as well. But no man is an island, My Morning Jacket has a great band behind the lead singer. Isn't it something how you can never find a band where every member has equal parts?
How ever the group was assembled it has been and is continuing to be a wonderful addition to the world of music. This group has many other great songs such as "One Big Holiday" and "The Day Is Coming", this group is seasoned with over 10yrs in the game and still truckin strong. Unhinged Reviews highly recommends giving My Morning Jacket's "Outta My System" a listen, if your ready to take action on your passion.
