“Had to have high, high hopes for a living…shooting for the stars when I couldn’t make a killing. Didn’t have a dime but I always had a vision…always had high, high hopes!”
This track from Panic! at the Disco is a great Inspirational Jam to encourage us all on the road to reach our goals. I love it so much that it’s actually a warm-up song for my Zumba class that I teach!
“High Hopes,” a track from the album Pray For The Wicked, really is a story of perseverance and drive. The song is lead singer Brendon Urie‘s story of persistence towards his musical ambitions in spite of the rough times. As many of us know, when you pursuing a big dream, you can’t always see the end. You have your struggles and your moments of doubt. However, that vision and purpose inside of you, when it’s what you’re meant to do, won’t let up. This song encourages us to have hope that we will indeed achieve our dreams, no matter how big and wild they are.
“No matter how hard your dreams seem, keep going,” Brendon wrote in the description box of the official video. “You might even have to climb up the side of a building in downtown LA, but it’ll all be worth it at the top.” HA! It’s a joke that refers to the video which you can watch below…
