Day 87 - Merril Bainbridge - Julie

DAY 87
Merril Bainbridge –“Julie”
From The Garden

This song is so lovely and just so beautifully written. It is soft and meaningful.

In truth, (and in my opinion), Merril Bainbridge was labeled as a passing pop star, when in reality, she is a very deep writer on many of her songs.

You can see a deeper meaning in many of them, but most of the tracks that you notice that writing style in were not the ones that you heard a lot on the radio.

I think a lot of folks who like Julianna Hatfield would enjoy Merril Bainbridge.

“Julie” is a song that anyone could really relate to. It encourages one to not be afraid to take risks and be unique… it acknowledges that though life can be mundane and boring we can make it so much more.

It asks us that blessed question that was posed in the fantastic book, “Who Moved My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson, M.D.:

“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”

THAT is a powerful notion if you really give it some thought...
