What occurrences would usually make you lose self-control? Is it a sad event or a happy one? The answer, of course, varies from one person to another. Most of the time, the impact that a certain situation has on us is so intense that we get carried away by it. And, if you’re looking for something that will carry you away, try listening to this exuberant song. It’s called “When I Get Carried Away.” The title alone will certainly take your gaiety to its peak level. It will likewise leave your spirit on a high.
The Song That Will Carry You Away
Christian music artists Phil Cross and Carolyn Cross penned the words and provided the music of the song. The two composed the tune in 1986. A year after, the tune garnered The Song of the Year honor from the Singing News Fans Awards. Many singers and groups have performed the song well. However, it was Gold City’s version that made the song reap the said accolade.
Ivan Parker, a multi-awarded winner and a former member of the southern quartet, delivered a solo performance of the song. As expected, his delivery is simply stunning. As we can see from the live video below, Parker is full of energy and charm which suits exactly the song’s theme. Also, the song conveys an uplifting message that is as vivacious as its feelings. Without a doubt, its jolly vibe will greatly excite you. On the other hand, the chorus contains wordings that sound like tongue-in-cheek, but it’s not. Musing it over will lead to a realization of its profound meaning.
I’m gonna let the glory roll when the roll is called in glory / I’m gonna get beside of myself when I get beside the King that day;
I’m gonna have the time of my life when the time of my life is over / I’m gonna get carried away when I get carried away.
