Radio Show …
 first aired in May of 2008. It was the nation’s first radio show that allowed listeners to read the lyrics as the songs play. Teen guest DJs suggest songs that either inspire positive  self-esteem, equality, a healthy planet, peace, diversity or never giving up. After we play each song, we discuss the message of the lyrics and how these songs can help youth, all over the world, choose to change things about themselves that may be holding them back from a life free of not feeling “good enough” and the self-bullying that results from feeling that way. 

If you’d like to suggest songs for us to play and discuss, email the lyrics to:  PreventBullyingNow@heyugly.org. If we use it on our show, we’ll send you a FREE T-shirt.

Our theme song is CHANGE YOUR MIND by Sister Hazel.  We love this band!
h o o s e   o   h a n g e  streams worldwide on WRHC-FM

FEELIN’ GROOVY by Simon & Garfunkel

Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobblestones
Looking for fun and feeling groovy
Ba da da da da da da, feeling groovy

Hello lamppost, what’cha knowing
I’ve come to watch your flowers growin’
Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me?
Doo-it in doo doo, feeling groovy
Ba da da da da da da, feeling groovy

I got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
Life I love you, all is groovy

LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Nick Zepp

Who Stole my time? It seems to slip away
Who Stole my time? Life gets shorter everyday
Don’t Blink, Just think, another moments gone

Just outside my door the world is right in front of me
Just outside my door the world begins to disagree
Stand tall, Be strong, Get up if ya fall

Still not sure what I want to be
and all the little things start to get to me
I’m not sure just what it all means to me
I just know…. You gotta live in the moment

Driving in my car the world is now apart from me
Driving in my car the world begins my destiny
Just go, not slow, if you don’t try you’ll never know

I Didn’t love my Job
They say that no one does
I guess that Im a snob
Cause Ill try and me the only one
We all push, We all Pull, money makes us fools

Still not sure what I want to be
and all the little things start to get to me
I’m not sure just what it all means to me
I just know…. You gotta live in the moment

Staring into space I try to live a dream
The whole human race would stop the hate and start to sing!
Believe, that dreams, sometimes do come true

Still not sure what I want to be
and all the little things start to get to me
I’m not sure just what it all means to me
I just know
I just know
You gotta live in the moment

SLOW ME DOWN by Emmy Rossum

Rushing and racing and running in circles
Moving so fast I’m forgetting my purpose
Blur of the traffic is sending me spinning
I’m getting nowhere
My head and my heart are colliding – chaotic
Pace of the world ‘ I just wish I could stop it
Try to appear like I’ve got it together

I’m falling apart
Save me
Somebody take my hand
And lead me

Slow me down
Don’t let love pass me by
Just show me how
Cause I’m ready to fall

Slow me down
Don’t let me live a lie
Before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

Sometimes I fear that I might disappear
In the blur of fast-forward I falter again
Forgetting to breathe, I need to sleep
I’m getting nowhere
All that I’ve missed I see in the reflection
Passed me while I wasn’t paying attention
Tired of rushing, racing and running

I’m falling apart
Tell me
Oh won’t you take my hand
And lead me

Slow me down
Don’t let love pass me by
Just show me how
Cause I’m ready to fall

Slow me down
Don’t let me live a lie
Before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

Just show me
I need you to slow me down
The noise of the world is getting me caught up
Chasing the clock and I wish I could stop it
Just need to breathe, somebody please

Slow me down

 

STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES by Mac Davis

Hey Mister
Where you going in such a hurry
Don’t you think it’s time you realized
There’s a whole lot more to life than work and worry
The sweetest things in life are free
And there right before your eyes

You got to Stop and Smell the roses
You’ve got to count your many blessings everyday
You’re gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don’t Stop and Smell the roses along the way

Before you went to work this morning in the city
Did you spent some time with your family
Did you kiss your wife and tell her that she’s pretty
Did you take your children to your breast and love them tenderly

You got to Stop and Smell the roses
You’ve got to count your many blessings everyday
You’re gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don’t Stop and Smell the roses along the way

Did you ever take a walk through the forest
Stop and dream a while among the trees
Well you can look up through the leaves right straight to heaven
You can almost hear the voice of God
In each any every breeze

You got to Stop and Smell the Roses
You’ve got to count your many blessings everyday
You’re gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don’t Stop and Smell the Roses along the way
You got to Stop and Smell the roses

You’ve got to count your many blessings everyday
You’re gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don’t Stop and Smell the roses along the way
