I just realized how amazing this song is again when it showed up on iTunes DJ Shuffle thingy.
'No More Drama' came out in 2002, when I was 14 years old. At that time I had a rough time, with a lot of things going on. I was struggling with the world and most of all with myself. I don't want to go into details, but for a couple of years afterwards I've had quite a rough time. Of course I was in puberty, but there were a lot of other things going on, that I maybe shouldn't have dealt with at such a young age.
This track has been my anthem during those years. It may sound cliché, but all I wanted at the time was my life to be drama free. I was longing for the moment I felt free and happy. I would listen to 'No More Drama' and Mary's emotional voice. It's like she shared the pain with me.
This song just popped up on my iTunes and listening to it, I got goosebumps. I even shed a tear just now. The power of music.
I realize now that my life has been good for quite some time now. I'm happy, and I have no drama going on. Recently I feel like I'm on the top of the world. Like I'm flying.
It's been 8 years since this song was released, but it feels like a lifetime ago. Now that I'm good, I;m still inspired by it. I think 'No More Drama' is an anthem for everyone, to remind that you should live your life to the max. That you should live your life for you and that you should make it as confortable as possible for yourself.
I'm sorry to go all emotional on you guys, but I just wanted to share. I love this song and I love Mary. She's such an inspiration!
