Miley Cyrus’ The Climb

How the pop star’s song lyrics inspires across generations.

Now just hold on. Wait a minute. Hear me out. If you know who Miley Cyrus is thanks to a pre-teen in your life or simply by seeing her face, well, everywhere, then you might be tempted to quit reading. We are inspired by Miley Cyrus? Bear with me.

If you don’t know who Miley Cyrus is, welcome to the world above your rock. She is the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, but more importantly, Miley is the reigning teen queen.

As the star of Disney television show Hannah Montana, about a student who is secretly a pop superstar, Miley has ruled the ‘tween world with albums and films as Hannah, Miley and both.

The first hit single from her latest movie, Hannah Montana: The Movie is called “The Climb.”

Now believe me, I was just like you. A month ago at an all-girls birthday weekend in Maine, a few friends with pre-teen daughters played “The Climb” and sang their hearts out to it while the rest of us looked on in horror. But then I stumbled on “The Climb” video one too-early morning, and, now actually hearing the lyrics, I thought, Wow. This is good. Really good.

The refrain?

“There’s always gonna be another mountain/I’m always gonna wanna make it move/Always gonna be an uphill battle/Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose/Ain’t about how fast I get there/Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side/It’s the climb.”
