The Climb- Miley Cyrus

My not-so little brother introduced me to a song two days ago and I found it to be pretty good. It is The Climb by Miley Cyrus. I am sure most of you have heard of her, the actress playing Hannah Montana. Although I am not a big fan of hers, especially the Hannah Montana series, I can say she can sing pretty well.

I found the lyrics to be meaningful and inspirational:

I can almost see it
That dream I’m dreaming but
There’s a voice inside my head sayin,
You’ll never reach it,
Every step I’m taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what?s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing,
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes they knock me down but
No I’m not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I,
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on, cause

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I’m going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

Keep on moving
Keep climbing
Keep the faith baby
It’s all about
It’s all about
The climb
Keep the faith
Keep your faith

I would rate this song a 9/10 for its encouraging lyrics. It is a good song and sets it out from other songs commonly sang by young singers, which revolve around love theme. It is really refreshing to see young singers going on this path.

The official music video is an in-between as I find the parts focusing on her too much for my liking, especially the part with the spotlight behind her, while the parts on her journey in the movie itself is rather well done. I would recommend her not to shake her hair so much in her next music video. Once in awhile is alright, but it was not necessary to be done repeatingly- it shows a lack of dance moves.

Do try listening to the song without watching the video and just enjoy the lyrics. It is definately a motivational song for those who are in times of trouble or are in the dumps.
