Gloria Gaynor -- I Will Survive [[ Official Video ]] HD



Gloria Gaynor's song, 'I Will Survive' strikes at the heart of our fears. When we have been in a relationship for an extended period it can be difficult to imagine our lives alone. The lyrics in this song are particularly powerful- As long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive! This is a highly spirited line that unleashes our inner power and embraces that well known phrase, 'love conquers all.'

How do we survive life's traumas? Usually by going through a grieving process during which our minds process the relationship- we can gauge where we are according to the thoughts that surface. Many break ups ride on the back of bad feeling and we may have to deal with a torrent of issues before we are able to face another relationship. So often people find strengths they did not know they possessed, or skills and capabilities that have been subdued as they were no longer exercised; this might include dealing with finance for example. Occasionally we gain new skills once we are single and need to sort out our lives ourselves. You might become better organised or even more sociable as your life-style changes.

Music is important in life and something we turn to equally in times of happiness or our worst moments. It helps us to express ourselves therefore has qualities that may be easier to relate to than in other art forms such as dance or paintings.

There are many excellent songs out there but 'I Will Survive,' is special. It has become an anthem that will stand through time immemorial. We have all had occasion to sing it. If you are in a vulnerable situation you can really draw strength from this song and hopefully re-kindle self belief. I think many of us have been thankful for the way it raises a bitter or sad spirit, awarding Gloria Gaynor notoriety as possibly the undisputed karaoke queeen!
