Have you noticed something a little...different around the site? Okay okay, we'll tell you our secret: we just did a total revamp! We got a makeover! We're so excited about the new, sleek look of MetroLyrics.com and all the cool features we're rolling out. So excited in fact, that we just had to make a playlist to rock out to today. This playlist features songs about — what else — Makeovers! Fresh starts! New looks! Listen along with us below and be sure to drop us a line to let us know what you think of the new site at firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. I'm Coming Out - Diana Ross
I'm coming out, I want the world to know / Got to let it show
You can't have a makeover playlist without this song, I think there's actually a law against it! This song and its lyrics say: if you've got a new look, or a new lease on life, FLAUNT IT!
2. Kanye West - The New Workout Plan
Thanks to Kanye's workout plan / I'm the envy of all my friends
Not to outdo the competition or anything, but our new layout definitely puts MetroLyrics on top of the when it comes to the look and feel of other lyrics websites. Thanks to the new design plan from our awesome staff over here at MetroLyrics, we're going to be the envy of all lyrics sites out there!
3. I Can See Clearly Now - Johnny Nash
Look all around, there's nothin' but blue skies / Look straight ahead, nothin' but blue skies
Is it a coincidence that all these songs talk about blue skies and sunshine? The rain (especially in these lyrics) has a cleansing effect that always seems to make one feel better, and fresher.
4. Change - Taylor Swift
'Cause these things will change / Can you feel it now?
Speaking of a fresh feel, there's a definite "change" in the way you get around our new site. The homepage is much simpler, cleaner, and more effective. Check out the social options in the top left corner: easy to spot, right? Taylor makes a point with her lyrics about change — it's all about how the site feels!
5. Feeling Good - Nina Simone
It's a new dawn, it's a new day / It's a new life for me / And I'm feeling good
Classic Nina Simone! This song has been covered so many times by the likes of Muse, Adam Lambert, Michael Buble, and even the Pussycat Dolls (weird, right?). It's probably because everyone can relate to feeling good the morning after a bad day.
6. Ready To Start - Arcade Fire
My mind is open wide / And now I'm ready to start
We've been super-stoked to launch our new site design ever since we got started on the update, and we feel like Arcade Fire's lyrics represent our excitement. Our minds are open wide to hear your opinions and suggestions about the fresh layout!
7. M People - Moving On Up
Movin' movin' movin' / Nothing can stop me
At first, I didn't know what this song was but then I heard the super catchy chorus ("Nooooothin' can stop me!") and instantly recognized it! We're excited to move on up with an even better layout for all you lyrics fans to enjoy!
8. Today My Life Begins - Bruno Mars
Just like all the seasons never stay the same / All around me I can feel a change
As the music industry evolves, we felt like we must make a change to our site in order to keep up with the times. Bruno said it best: the seasons are always turning, and so is the world of music, so it's our duty to stay on top of it!
9. (Just Like) Starting Over - John Lennon
Although our love is still special / Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere / Starting over
These lyrics, in true John Lennon fashion, are truly beautiful. He communicates that it's okay to part ways with somebody you love, because starting over is an adventure in and of itself.
10. Turntable - TLC
Maybe you'll learn / Life is worth it / Watch the tables turn
Some of you might not be a fan of change, and we get it — sometimes it can be a bit daunting! But, in the end, TLC states that changes are worth it, because we can all learn from it.
