Happy Sunday music lovers! I’m starting things off today with Tim Riehm’s ‘You’re a Star’, a song with a very important message.
I wrote “You’re a Star” when I was really sad, to be honest. I was feeling really insecure about a lot of things: music and money, mostly. I was just in a dark place, so I sought my form of therapy and started writing. It was one of those situations where I was metaphorically standing in the mirror and telling myself compliments to hype myself up–and it worked. “You’re a Star” talks about putting on a front for other people and hiding the real you, about letting people’s words get you, and about just generally feeling down on yourself, but at the end of every line of doubt, it comes back to the idea that the things we get down on are actually what make us amazing. This one means a lot to me (as all of these Care Package songs do) because it dug me out of a hole when I wasn’t in a good place, and I hope it can do the same for everyone else.
Thank you for sharing these words with us Tim ❤️
