Today’s song is in celebration of my friend’s birthday. It is fitting that I am posting a song for her here as she is the one who, along with my daughter, convinced me to start this blog and is probably my biggest promoter and fan.
This is such a great song and I love the title. My friend lives her life wide open and full of joy. She is definitely living while she is young … and she will always be young. She knows the meaning of living life to the fullest and enjoying each moment. She is quick to laugh, always up for an adventure, full of energy, and is constantly serving others. I know that I am not the only friend of her’s who has benefited from the spark for life that she shares with everyone she meets. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my dear friend! I miss you and know that you are out living while you are young today, even though you are one day older. 🙂
“Live While We’re Young” is from JOHNNYSWIM, the husband-wife duo of Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano. JOHNNYSWIM is one of my favorite newer musical groups and I previously shared a song by them on this website back in December (I give a little more history about them in that post). Their full length debut album, Diamonds, was just released today! I have been anxiously awaiting its release, so I wanted to share another song by them from the new album today. They are incredible and just have a remarkable sound.
I truly love this new song and there are so many on the album that are worth a listen. I am very impressed with this album – the song lyrics are fantastic, the sound of their two voices together is incredible, the music is raw and infectious, and their chemistry is just something that is not seen very often. Enjoy this new song and the new album today!
There is not currently a YouTube video out for this song, but click here to listen to the song. I will update the page as soon as a video is avaiable. In the meantime, the Album Trailer video below will give you a taste, and if you click here NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert will give you a fantastic view of this remarkable husband-wife duo.
