“Dream on Little Dreamer.” The lyrics from Above & Beyond’s You Got To Go have remained pertinent since it’s 2011 release. Like many A&B tracks, You Got to Go has aged well. The discussion is still hot 8 and a half years later. On January 8, 2020, the vocalist Zoe Johnston provided new information.
Seven bullet points describe Johnston’s inspiration as the songwriter. You Got to Go is fueled by the desire to become the best version of ourselves. To reach our goals.
“I’m so sick of song narratives about people begging someone else to make things right for them,” Johnston describes how we can’t expect someone else to make our lives better. We have to work for ourselves.
A key point from Zoe Johnston is the importance of planning. “Gather up what you need and choose a direction.” She isn’t encouraging last-minute decisions. Johnston encourages listeners to make goals and make our dreams reality. “All good manifesting begins with a vision and leads to steps of action.”
8 years later the message in You Got To Go is as strong as ever. There are millions of us trying to figure out the right job or how to plan for family life in the future. If we want to see the change we have to work for it.
Above & Beyond and Zoe Johnston want their listeners to keep dreaming of bigger and brighter tomorrows. They really believe that anything can be accomplished with goal setting and proper planning. You Got To Go inspires people to be better.
