Oh, Mighty Oaks. In anticipation of their new release out on July 5th, my favorite little Germany-based folk band has released a video for the title track off the Just One Day EP.
If summer had a theme song, this would be it.
Everything about “Just One Day” – the lyrics, the message, the harmonies, the instrumentation, the massive bridge at 2:10, the video – screams go with the flow, carpe diem, live life now.
It is a perfect song. And like all perfect songs, it has power. This one is filled with the promise of those care-free days, the magic of possibility and things yet to be. It makes me long for days in the sun on a beach, roadtrips with my best friends, and the butterflies of summer flings. It makes me smile. It makes me want to do something epic. But more importantly, it makes me believe I can do something epic – and some days, when you’re trapped behind your desk and wondering if it’s all worth it, that belief is everything.
Yes, one song can do all that. See for yourself.
You can pre-order the Just One Day EP for less than your daily Starbucks. Seems appropriate that it is being released the day after the biggest summer holiday of them all.
