#MusicMondays: Upside Down by Jack Johnson

Have you ever been told you can’t do something and it made you want to do it even more? This week’s song, Upside Down by Jack Johnson, sends a message to always stay curious. By staying curious and looking at challenges from a different perspective you might discover something better that wasn’t initially right in front of you.

“Who’s to say what’s impossible and can’t be found?” – Jack Johnson

A Song About Curiosity

About the Song

Upside Down written, co-produced, and performed by Jack Johnson was originally created for the children’s movie Curious George. However, since it was released over 15 years ago listeners of all ages have been able to find their own meaning in the song. Whether it is staying optimistic, exploring new possibilities, or revisiting old ideas this song finds a way to relate. This evidently led to its peak position of #38 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2006. The song remains popular and known by many today for encouraging listeners to think outside the box and not to give up when someone doesn’t believe in you.

Lyrics

Who’s to say
What’s impossible
Well they forgot
This world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything
And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread it’s wings
There’s no stopping curiosity

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to Mother Nature’s songs
I don’t want this feeling to go away

Who’s to say
I can’t do everything
Well I can try
And as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren’t always just what they seem

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to Mother Nature’s songs
This world keeps spinning and there’s no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning round and round and

Upside down
Who’s to say what’s impossible and can’t be found
I don’t want this feeling to go away

Please don’t go away
Please don’t go away
Please don’t go away
Is this how it’s supposed to be
Is this how it’s supposed to be
