movie music motivation magic: you’re the best!

24 04 2009

in what might (but probably won’t) become a regular thing, we here at icftg.com have decided to end each week with a bit of motivational music movie magic music…magic.   this week’s feature is joe esposito’s Karate Kid classic ‘you’re the best’.  we’ve not only imbeeded the youtube footage, but we’ve also included the lyrics (with commentary).

enjoy your weekend and try not to chuff harder than you send.  you know who you are.

lyrics from here:

Try to be best
‘Cause you’re only a man
And a man’s gotta learn to take it

can someone clarify ‘take it’ in this context.  i like learning and all, but sometimes a man has limits.  amirite or amirite?

Try to believe
Though the going gets rough
That you gotta hang tough to make it

hang tough.  nice.  this one is climbing specific.  score one for joe esposito.

History repeats itself
Try and you’ll succeed

this is just totally confusing for super-obvious reasons.

Never doubt that you’re the one
And you can have your dreams!

the one what?   well?  nevermind.  thanks for letting me have my dreams.


You’re the best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you dow-ow-ow-ow-own

ow ow ow own.   lovin’ it.


Fight ‘til the end
Cause your life will depend
On the strength that you have inside you

okay.  not really motivating.  i mean, why fight til the end if my life will depend on invisible inner strength.  couldn’t i just stop in the middle and let my innards bring home the trophy?


Ah you gotta be proud
starin’ out in the cloud
When the odds in the game defy you

aha.  proud DOES rhyme with cloud.  nice one joe.

Try your best to win them all
and one day time will tell
when you’re the one that’s standing there
you’ll reach the final bell!

ding!

You’re the best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you dow-ow-ow-ho-how-ho-own

see above


INSPIRING GUITAR SOLO

LOL.  SOOOOO INSPIRING.

You’re the best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you dow-ow-ow-ow-own

i got nothing here.  again.

Fight ‘til you drop
never stop
can’t give up
Til you reach the top (FIGHT!)
you’re the best in town (FIGHT!)
Listen to that sound
A little bit of all you got
Can never bring you down

sometimes all it takes to bring you down is a little bit of all you got.  especially if all you have is a little bit.  see what i’m saying?


You’re the best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!

repeat to fade, occasional background shouts of “Oh Ye-eah!”

oh yeah!
