You Can’t Always Get What You Want

The message of this song is pretty clear (I mean, it says it in the title) – you can’t and aren’t always going to get what you want, which is why I chose it as the song that I think represents ToK. For me personally, and a lot of people, their aim in life is to be happy, which is often seen as synonymous with getting what you want, but it’s not. Happiness comes from having what is best for you, for example just because a drug addict wants more drugs, it doesn’t mean it’s making them happy. I think wisdom and knowledge of yourself is learning to find that balance of what you want and what you need – like the song says, sometimes you might just find you get what you need.
