I got interested in this group from a list by a fitness trainer. Another song not listed by the same group was there and I like the lyrics and the voice of the lead singer who sounds a lot like Freddie Mercury. I was looking for music that had a beat that I could listen to while walking or running. This is the type of inspirational and upbeat music I was looking for.

IMHO the most exciting new group to come along in years, Fun delivers again with "Carry On." My seven and eight year old enjoy it as much or more than I do, so that's a multi-generational endorsement, and they don't go for kiddie stuff like Justin Beiber. Thankfully for my ears they are more discriminating!
So many times I find myself singing this song. The words are comforting to me in a way that is hard to explain. I guess it is like finding out that someone else has troubles too, and somehow that makes the world smaller and more friendly. Love the band....Thank Goodness for FUN!
The sound of the band Fun. is just amazing. I love it. The lyrics, what I consider the heart of the song, are sometimes less lovable in my opinion. For me, Carry On, is one of Fun.'s best songs.
I do like the message and challenge to carry on in adversity. I less like the negative lyrics: "I can cheat it all To make up for the times I've been cheated on..." because it comes across to me as creating an endless cycle of being a victim and making others victims. The ideology of self love, self empowerment tends to overpower the positive elements of the song. For example the lyric "We are shining stars. We are invincible." fails to recognize the desire for relationships that, at our core, bring joy to our life.
Unlike the song Fun by Carry On, this is the real deal. Wanted this song from the first time I heard it. Most of their music has a nice catchy sound and this is no exception. It hasn't gotten old yet after several months, so I'm going to say, it's a keeper.
if you are lost and alone and sinking like a stone - CARRY ON... love the song, love the singer's voice and the music... very inspiring... some compare it to QUEEN and I can see the comparisons but no matter what this is a WONDERFUL song....
I'll bet you won't see an American Idol contestant try to sing a Nate Reuss song! His voice and style are so unique it would set them up for failure! No one could do the song as good or better. Don't even go there! Super Talent!
I fell in love with this song on the radio, looked up the lyrics online and found the MP3. I like purchasing select MP3s rather that whole cds because I get to have only the songs I love. This is one of them! It is great!
