“You only have one life to live. Get out of your comfort zone and you will grow. Don’t be afraid of things that you want in life. JUMP IN and go for it!” – Gary Pratt
According to what I’ve learned about the song as a writer and listener, the lyrics in “You Gotta Jump In” are about enjoying life to the fullest and not passing up any chance. The music is interesting and transmits emotions that we identify with because the song reminds us that life is fleeting and we must make it through the day. That applies to everyone, so it’s both a wake-up call and a wonderful reminder for us.
The music perfectly complements the theme of the song with upbeat synths and guitar riffs to keep you hooked throughout. The melodious melody that comes in midway through the music enchants me as it breaks through the mix and curls itself around me. Gary just produced the appropriate mood for this tune by combining all of the elements.
