“All About That Bass” is the debut single by American singer and songwriter Meghan Trainor. Released by Epic Records on June 30, 2014, it was recorded for her 2014 debut EP and her 2015 studio album, both named Title. Trainor co-wrote “All About That Bass” with its producer Kevin Kadish; it is a bubblegum pop/doo-wop and retro-R&B song that draws influences from various musical genres including hip hop, country and rock and roll. Lyrically, it discusses positive body image.
Funny how the perception of oneself transcends many other areas of a persons life.. If only we take a moment to experience it..
Personal preference aside, confidence in who you are is always sexy to me! But I digress..
When I first heard this song the similarities in my life challenges became illuminated. You see, we live in a world with constant bombardment and interruptions via email, texts, mobile calls you name it; so how can you think clearly!!
This song as a reference to Bass vs Treble conjures new and old heart felt things in thought processing. Beginning to see, a life with only treble and no bass will not make you fully happy. We strive to engage more of our life’s gifts of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell for a truer experience in this life’s journey. Yes, the song is about having a positive body image; but really it’s about personally overcoming of one’s acceptance of others in our own skin.
As I grow older and solidify my deep rooted beliefs in those areas that ground me morally, spiritually and physically, it’s these songs made popular by the masses that give me solace in the search for my happiness. If only we take time to absorb its meaning beyond the obvious…
Living Large now has a new perspective! 🙂
Here’s to your day, make it one you fully experience on your terms!!
