Transcendentalism in Modern Songs
By: Kimberly Fish + Anduin DeVos
This song resembles self-reliance, by thinking of yourself and taking care of yourself. Unwritten is a song that is helping girls get the confidence they need in life.
Hakuna matata
"Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase

Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze

It means no worries for the rest of your days

It's our problem-free philosophy

Hakuna Matata!"
Get Up Stand Up

By: Bob Marley
This song embodies the transcendentalist theme of standing up for your rights, especially if something seems unjust.

"Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don't give up the fight!"

These are an example of the lyrics giving a rallying call to make a stand for your rights.
Don't Stop Believin'
By: Journey
"Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'"
This song is full of transcendentalist themes. The lyric "Hold on to that feeling" shows seizing the day and nonconformity. The lyric "Don't stop believin'" shows standing up for your rights and thinking for yourself.
By: Natasha Bedingfield
"No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips"
Disney's Lion King
This song means no worries and seizing the day. To also be yourself!
Let It Go
I chose this song because it resembles thinking of yourself and being yourself. When Elsa sings this song she is releasing herself into the work as who she is, and that's important.

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You'll never see me cry!

Here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let the storm rage on!

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I'm never going back,
The past is in the past!

Let it go, let it go
When I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone!

Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway!
"Let It Go"

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation,
And it looks like I'm the queen.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I tried!

Don't let them in, don't let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
Well, now they know!

Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door!

I don't care
What they're going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway!

It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all!

It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me I'm free!
