My Sunday Song – “Brand New” by Ben Rector

I can’t believe I am on my 11th My Sunday Song post.  Time to change it up a bit.  I have a new picture for the next 10 weeks (thanks to my wonderful Mother-In-Law) and the song choices will vary slightly.  These next 10 songs won’t be songs by Christian based artists.   They are going to be by mainstream artists, but they will still be fun, up-lifting and have a positive message.

I am starting #11 with the song “Brand New” by Ben Rector.  The song is off his latest album of the same name for which he is currently touring.  Check out the album and the tour as you will not be disappointed.

The song “Brand New” is such a happy song and can put a smile on your face.  Everyone loves the brand new feel of a new car, new clothes, newly washed bedsheets and the feel of a new girlfriend/boyfriend.  This song makes you feel all those things and more all over again and again.

The video for the song is extra cool as it is a bunch of clips of fan-made videos for the song. He held a contest with Yahoo to hold an acoustic show in a fan’s living room.   So many great videos were sent in that they compiled them together to make this super fun video.

I hope this brightens your day and helps you start this next week with an extra bounce in your step.  I am going to go watch the video again and dance like no one is watching.

“Brand New”

 

I feel like new sunglasses, like a brand new pair of jeans
I feel like taking chances, I feel a lot like seventeenI feel like windows rolled down, new city, streets and cabs
I feel like anything can happen, laughing,
You take me right back, when we were kids
Never thought I’d feel like this

Like when I close my eyes and don’t even care if anyone sees me dancing
Like I can fly, and don’t even think of touching the ground
Like a heartbeat skip, like an open page
Like a one way trip on an aeroplane
It’s the way that I feel when I’m with you, brand new
Brand new

I feel like a young John Cusack, like making big mistakes
I feel like for the first time in a long time I am not afraid
I feel like a kid, never thought it’d feel like this

Like when I close my eyes and don’t even care if anyone sees me dancing
Like I can fly, and don’t even think of touching the ground
Like a heartbeat skip, like an open page
Like a one way trip on an aeroplane
It’s the way that I feel when I’m with you, brand new

Time will always try to make us old
You remind me what I used to know

Like when I close my eyes and don’t even care if anyone sees me dancing
Like I can fly, and don’t even think of touching the ground
Like a heartbeat skip, like an open page
Like a one way trip on an aeroplane
It’s the way that I feel when I’m with you, brand new

Brand new, yeah, yeah, yeah
And I feel brand new
I feel brand new
I feel brand new
