2 Years of Songs: No 2 – “Titanium”

David Guetta (feat. Sia)

A jewel in my playlist. Throughout the dark times over the the past 2 years this song would often serendipitously pop up – bringing light and determination to the dark, clearing the fog, injecting me with its hard-metallic antidote.

“Titanium” combined an upbeat tempo with an inspiring lyric, which rarely failed to lift me from my self-imposed mind-cage. The way it built up to its chorus would always get the blood pumping. For this reason “Titanium” is also a great track to work out to.

I’m criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium

“Titanium” will not go down as the best song ever written. But it doesn’t matter. Its energy, sentiment and overall feeling will do for me.
