    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!

    It's such an amazing song. It was a new emancipation for Mary. She overcame her problems and fears and pains and she was a whole new woman.


    Maybe the thread should be moved into the retro though. I've always wondered about this.

    I don’t know
    Only God knows where the story ends
    For me
    But I know where the story begins
    It’s up to us to choose
    Whether we win or lose
    And I choose to win
    Oh oo oh oo oh!

    This song makes me cry. A signature MJB song. The grammy performance shits on this version.

    Also, it's 15 years ago this song was now released.

    The passion in this song is unrivalled, I felt every word that she sang. Around the time the album was released was a great time for me as I wasn't even a teenager yet and had no drama at all in my life. I was 12 years old listening to the No More Drama album on repeat.
