Day 1: Stand Out

What’s the best way to get the grogginess out of one’s system so early in the morning when one is forced out of bed after only sleeping for–oh, I don’t know–4 or 5 hours?  Music.  Rocking Music.  And no.  I am not talking about my own experience for today.

For the first day of the hundred-day music series, we have Mitchel Musso’s rendition of a song from Disney’s A Goofy Movie which is entitled: “Stand Out“.

Before you go on saying that it’s such a childish choice, let me tell you that it’s not.  The lyrics is actually pretty damn good and, unlike most of the songs we hear nowadays, it actually has a positive message.  Sure, the purpose of the song (in the movie) was for Max to sing it to that “girl” he’s crushing on but, if you look at the lyrics you’d be able to see why I love the song…not to mention that Mitchel Musso did a pretty dang good job with it.  Of course, that’s just my two cents.  There are a lot of hardcore Disney fans (yes, believe it or not there are) who did not find Mitchel’s rendition good…at all.

This song is compiled along with a couple of other Disney renditions on the 7th volume of Disney Mania.

Anyways, here’s the lyrics to the song:

Open up your eyes, take a look at me
Get the picture fixed in your memory
I’m driven by the rythm like the beat of a heart
And I won’t stop until I start
To stand out
To stand out

Some people settle for the typical thing
Livin’ all their lives waiting in the wings
It ain’t a question of “if”, just a matter of time
Before I move to the front of the line

Once you’re watching every move that I make
You gotta believe that I got what it takes

To stand out, above the crowd
Even if I gotta shout out loud
‘Til mine is the only face you’ll see
Gonna stand out …

‘Til ya notice me

If the sqeeky wheel’s always gettin’ the grease
I’m totally devoted to disturbing the peace
And I’ll do it all again, when I get done
Until I become your number one
No method to the madness, and no means of escape

Gonna break every rule or bend them all outta shape
It ain’t a question of “how”, just a matter of when
You get the message that I’m tryin’ to send

I’m under a spell, I’m in over my head
And you know I’m going all the way to the end

To stand out, above the crowd
Even if I gotta shout out loud
‘Til mine is the only face you see
Gonna stand out …

‘Til ya notice me

If I could make you stop and take a look at me
instead of just, walkin’ by
There’s nothin that
I wouldn’t do if it was gettin’ you to notice
I’m alive
All I need is half a chance,
a second thought, a second glance
To prove, I got whatever it takes

It’s a piece of cake

To stand out, above the crowd
Even if I gotta shout out loud
‘Til mine is the only face you’ll see
Gonna, stand out, stand out

Stand out!

‘Til mine is the only face you’ll see
Gonna stand out

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling". Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
