It’s been awhile since I’ve put out one of these “World Awakening in Music” posts, so there’s lots of news in the music world right now. And I’m sure there’s a lot more than I’m aware of. If you know of a song I could add to a future post, then feel free to send it to me or link it in comments. Also, you can connect with me on Facebook under the name “Angelic View” (I did not make a “page”. Maybe I should?)
When Sara Bareilles put out her famous song, “Love Song“, she said that the meaning of that song was that her bosses in the music industry were bugging her to write a love song, and it was actually written to them to get off her back. In her song, “Brave”, I wonder if you can come up with a theory on who she’s actually talking to? I have a few of my own theories on this (namely, President Obama).
The next one we have here is “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry. I’m going to link the official video here instead of the Lyrics one, because I want you to see the immaculate symbology in this video.
Of course, where would we be in awakening if we didn’t include “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons. He speaks of the “Apocalypse”. For those who may not know, this is the definition of the word:
Apocalypse: An apocalypse (Ancient Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apocálypsis, from ἀπό and καλύπτω meaning ‘un-covering’), translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, i.e., a lifting of the veil or revelation, although this sense did not enter English until the 14th century. In religious contexts it is usually a disclosure of something hidden. In the Revelation of John (Greek Ἀποκάλυψις Ἰωάννου, Apocalypsis Ioannou), the last book of the New Testament, the revelation which John receives is that of the ultimate victory of good over evil and the end of the present age, and that is the primary meaning of the term, one that dates to 1175.

“Sammy Hagar Talks Aliens”. He says that aliens were parked up on a hill 12 miles behind his house and music was “wirelessly downloaded” into his brain. He talks about it in the first couple of minutes of this video:
Uprising by Muse, from the album The Resistance.
These are the ones that have come across my radar screen. Have any to add?
A World Awakening
Words & music by Richard Mekdeci
No more fighting – hearts uniting
All one people, all one dream
Hate is dying. Love is rising
On a World Awakening
Children of one God, one planet
Let the earth and heaven sing
Join the angel’s joyous strains
All for a World Awakening
Oh – For A World Awakening (repeat)
One day all the world is watching
Time weaves us a common theme
Peace, our anthem. All are welcome
To a World Awakening
Oh – To A World Awakening (repeat)
New ideas and new beginnings
That’s what each tomorrow brings
Freely giving, we are living
In a World Awakening
Oh – In A World Awakening
Hate is dying, love is rising
On A World Awakening
