In other words, this means that no matter what life throws at someone, people need to find the strength to pick them selves up. “These thoughts were going through my mind as I continued to run, not feeling my numb foot, not even realizing that I was still running, that I still owned a body that galloped down the road among thousands of others.”…

    The new "Ghostbusters" movie was released on the 15th of July and along with the movie's release came the release of the soundtrack. On the soundtrack is the song Girls Talk Boys by 5 Seconds of Summer. If you are not a fan of the band, I recommend that you still listen to the song. It is very different than their typical sound and the song has a funky, retro kind of vibe to it. Even the vocals are not of the typical pop rock style. There is more of a groove to the entire song that I would actually compare to DNCE. If you are into the band, you will appreciate and his ever-present bass guitar. The bass and electric in this song give it a sound unlike what is prominent in today's music and I think this song is such a bop. Give it a listen and…
