A Timely Self-Empowerment Anthem with Inspirational Lyrics

From “Firework”— Katy Perry

……. Do you know that there's still a chance for you?
'Cause there's a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, "Oh, oh, oh"
As you shoot across the sky
Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, "Oh, oh, oh"
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe, awe, awe

You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow
Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it's time, you'll know…..

What was the last song that got stuck in your head?

Mighty staffer @xokat has this thing she does where she listens to a singular song over and over and over again. It doesn’t happen all the time, but when a specific beat/lyrics speak to her, you better believe it’s the only thing playing in the background. Sorry in advance to everyone around her! (Recent examples: “Too Sweet” by Hozier, “Stick Season” by Noah Kahan, and pretty much anything and everything by Lawrence.)

Do you get songs stuck in your head? What was the latest?

What do you like to listen to when you want to chill out?

Mighty staffer @skyeg put together the perfect playlist for those days you just need a way to escape your current headspace (cannabis not required if it isn’t your thing, but it does make a great pairing!).

It’s called ☁️ cloud songs ☁️ and contains over four hours of tracks that’ll make you deep breathe, close your eyes, contemplate the universe, and maybe even dance in your seat! (We realize it’s a little early for 4/20, but consider this an early present.)

What's your go-to karaoke song?

Next up to the Mighty mic… you!

Even if you’ve never participated in karaoke before, you probably have some Very Strong Opinions regarding what song you would sing if asked (you know, those tunes you shout-sing in the shower or the car). And if you don’t, now is your time to pick one!

🎤 P.S. A recent market study suggests that the karaoke industry will grow by over $330 million in the United States alone in the next five years, so opportunities to sing karaoke may increase. So, now’s your chance to choose your go-to song, or browse others’ favorites for inspiration in the comments!

Create a 3-song playlist based on how you’re feeling today.

“Where words fail, music speaks.” - Hans Christian Anderson

Do you ever have one of those days where you can’t quite put how you’re feeling into words? Mighty staffer @skyeg has been having a lot of those lately — including today. So instead of using words, Skye made a mini musical playlist that expresses where she’s at today. Here’s her playlist:

☁️ “Silver Lining” by Rilo Kiley

💡 “I Should Be Allowed to Think” by They Might Be Giants

🎸 “Closer to Fine” by the Indigo Girls

And a bonus song that fits the “vibe” she’s going for: “Double Dare Ya” by Bikini Kill 🥁

Like that Hans Christian Anderson quote says, sometimes we don’t have adequate words for what we’re going through. When that happens, music can be a great way to get in touch with our feelings and convey to others what we’re experiencing.

What songs are on your mini playlist?

How do you like to keep yourself busy when you’re in the waiting room or at an appointment?

It’s a not-great reality, but oftentimes we spend significantly more time waiting for health care providers, procedures, or surgeries than we do actually seeing or having them.

And you know what that means! We have each mastered the art of passing time. What’s your favorite way to keep busy while you’re waiting? Do you play on your phone? Read a book? Take a nap? Doodle? Catch up on your texts? Listen to music?

Drop your distractions below. ⬇️

Turn one of your symptoms into a band name.

Mighty staffer Kat was talking to her partner during dinner last night and she said she felt very weighed down by her bone-crushing fatigue lately. He then replied, “That would make such an amazing metal band.” So that leads us to today’s prompt!

Here are the instructions:

✅ Choose a symptom (e.g., fatigue)
⭐️ Add a descriptor (e.g., bone-crushing)
🎵 Choose a genre of music (e.g., metal)

Can’t wait to hear what you come up with!
