Aktuelle Hits zu verstehen ist oft nicht ganz leicht. Gut, wenn ein Engländer erklärt, worum es dabei eigentlich geht. David Fermer erzählt auf englisch diesmal über „Hall of Fame“ von The Script.

          1 Min.

          Three young men from Ireland and their dreams of becoming pop stars. Two of them, Mark Sheehan and Danny O’Donogue, once almost made it when they were teenagers. In 1996, aged sixteen and nineteen, Mark and Danny were in a boy band called MyTown. But Mytown was never successful, and five years after starting the band, MyTown ended. Mark and Danny had to put their dreams on hold.

          They went on to start their own band, The Script. They found a drummer called Glen Power, and after a few more years of hard work, The Script produced its first album in 2008 - a success. It looked like Mark and Danny’s dream was finally about to come true.

          Now that dream is a reality. Not only are The Script famous all over the world, they have even written songs about their journey together. „You could be the greatest / You can be the best,“ sings Danny as if he’s singing about himself as a sixteen-year-old boy. „You can move a mountain / You can break rocks / You can be a master / Don’t wait for luck.“ The Script didn’t wait for luck. They made their luck - with hard work. And now, „standing in the hall of fame / the world’s gonna know your name/’cause you burn with the brightest flame.“ The Script’s song, „Hall of Fame“ is a call to everybody to hold onto their dreams and do their best, for whatever reason. „Do it for your people / Do it for your pride / (you’re) never gonna know, if you never even try / Do it for your country / do it for your name / ’cause there’s gonna be a day.“ The Script’s day is now. And maybe 2013 will be their year. After almost seventeen years since Mark and Danny first started singing together, The Script has earned their success. Perhaps their journey will be an inspiration for others to hold onto their dreams and work hard to make them come true.
