Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "You are Who You are"

Listen Here for the Story Behind the Song.

 LYRICS

 Lost inside the fog and doubt in a world I don’t know, I’m scared that if I try and fail, there’s only me to blame, searching for the real me. Who am I? I am alone. I find strengths within my fears and courage in my pain. When you’re lost, you have to look for the light. When you believe in yourself, you’ll be alright. Times can be tough, but so can you. This is your chance, just keep pushing through. Yeah, you are who you are. The fog is clearing in my mind and I’ll make it if I try. I’m scared that if I never try, there’s only me to blame, searching for the real me. And I wonder who I’ll find. I find the light within myself, and I’ll never be the same. When you’re lost, you have to look for the light. When you believe in yourself, you’ll be alright. Times can be tough, but so can you. This is your chance, just keep pushing through. Yeah, you are who you are. Here I am. I’ve found myself in a place I’ve always known. I made it here because I’ve tried and look at all I’ve gained. Searching for the real me and, oh, look how I’ve grown. ‘Cause I am who I am and I found I can’t be changed.

Bob Boilen's 15 Essential Moments From SXSW 2013

Adam Kissick for NPR

Originally published on Thu May 16, 2013 1:20 pm

Unlike any other festival, South by Southwest is unique to everyone who attends. And I love that about this festival. With over 2,200 bands spread out over 100 venues and five days of music, everyone sees something different and walks away with different joys and discoveries. You could go to a Brooklyn Vegan showcase and spend the whole day in one place. You could search out only Latino bands, or metal bands, hip hop or blues. In fact, when the All Songs crew gathers to record our late night dispatches on the streets of Austin, Texas, we all share completely different joys.

Duane Allman of The Allman Brothers Band lived to play music. A new box set, Skydog, collects the legendary body of work he produced before his death in 1971.

The Allman Brothers Band produced the sound at the heart of Southern rock. At Fillmore East, the live double album that launched Duane and Gregg Allman into the rock stratosphere, was recorded 42 years ago this month. But on Oct. 29, 1971, just days after the record was certified gold, 24-year-old Duane was killed in a motorcycle accident.
