Background Music: The Fool – Try Everything


Welcome to Background Music: an occasional series where Wooly finds songs that remind her of Tarot cards.

It’s a new blog series I’m going to start working on.  As part of her Alternative Tarot Course, Beth asks students to “choose three cards and find three songs to match them or if you prefer, choose the songs first, then search through your deck to find a card that seems to match it.”  And by the way, if you haven’t taken her course, it’s fantastic and I highly recommend it.

I was sitting at my desk yesterday listening to my Pandora Disney station and a song that I love started playing and boom, I immediately knew it represented The Fool.

It’s called Try Everything and it’s by Shakira for the Zootopia movie (which was adorable).  It’s just this cute sugar sweet pop song about trying even if you might screw up.

It just rang so true to the Fool for me.

“I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail.”


“I’ll keep on making those new mistakes
I’ll keep on making them every day
Those new mistakes”
