Stand Up For Love With Jay Max’s ‘Standing Still’
To ‘stand still’ is a movement (or non movement) reserved for statues and those who have a deep cause coursing through their veins. It’s an act that explicitly states that ‘I’m not going anywhere’ or ‘The show must go on despite (insert mishap here)’. That in itself is an impressive feat because it speaks to your values, ideologies and just like a statue you’ll remain there till you get what you want. Whether that’s for justice, equality or a dream for yourself or the many, it’s something to admire and emulate specially for this troubled generation.
Like the Pied Piper of Hamelin who never ceases to attract, artist extraordinaire Jay Max’s new single ‘Standing Still’ invites us to stand up for love. Released last January 27th in all major platforms, it’s a tune that perfectly describes a love that’s resilient and overflowing with affection. It’s a song that says ‘if you love someone deeply, then go for it!’, go for it because maybe they might be the right one for you. As the lyrics would say “I don’t wanna wait another second more”. Sure it could be frightening, but it’s definitely worth a shot once you’ve mustered enough strength to do so. It’s a huge step that’ll change your life not just the for-now, but possibly for-ever. Here you’ll gain a lover, partner, best friend, and someone you’ll choose to love day in and day out.
While L-O-V-E is front and center in Jay Max’s “Standing Still”, it’s a song that prides itself in not being overtly cheesy. Instead of the lovey dovey scenarios typically presented in romcoms and sitcoms, it’s a more realistic look at what it truly means to ‘go for it’. To admit you like/ love them isn’t as simple as it seems. It’s an internal battle but most importantly it’s making yourself vulnerable and at the mercy of someone else. If you’re ready and willing to face that head on, then stand up.. do it NOW.
Advanced happy valentines ya’ll!
