Music Memories Monday: Leave It All to Shine – iCarly & Victorious Cast

Heyo peeps!! Today’s Music Monday is going to be a bit different, I’m going to be sharing a song that’s attached to a memory. I was inspired by the “more than a memory” prompt from the Me and Music tag and decided I’m going to kind of do that for every other Music Monday until I run out of memories lol.

Normal Music Mondays are hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is share one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today’s song is *drumroll* Leave It All to Shine…which I mean you should know by reading the title but the drumroll was fun to type lol.

I know there’s been a lot of problems behind both of these shows, but who didn’t watch one or the other at some point in their life? I didn’t even have cable as a child (or now) and I some how watched a few episodes of each show. Also the reboot of iCarly, I haven’t been able to watch it, but I know people were excited.

The specific memory I have attached to this song occurred sometime during the summer when I was still in elementary school. My cousins and I were at my grandma’s house and I convinced them to perform this song with me. We grabbed hairbrushes for our microphones, spent a good amount of time learning the lyrics by heart, and then adding a choreography. It was a lot of fun! I remember trying really hard to convince them to do it with me, but I only ended up dragging one of them to do it, my other cousin just held the camera and controlled the music. At the end of the day we had a recording of us and performed it live for our grandma and parents. I wonder if they still remember that lol.

✨🎤 The Lyrics 📹✨

[Verse 1: Miranda, Victoria, Miranda & Jennette]
I know you see
Somehow the world will change for me
And be so wonderful
Here I am once again
Feeling lost but now and then
Live life, breathe air
I know somehow we're gonna get there
And feel so wonderful

[Pre-Chorus: Victoria with Elizabeth, Miranda with Jennette, Nathan & Jerry, Miranda]
When you figure out how
You're lost in the moment, you disappear
It's all for real
I'm tellin' you just how I feel

[Chorus: Victoria with Ariana & Elizabeth, Miranda with Matt & Avan, Victoria with Nathan & Jerry, Victoria & Miranda with Leon, Daniella & Jennette]
You don't have to be afraid to put your dreams in action
You're never gonna fade you'll be the main attraction
Wake up the members of my nation
It's your time to be
Not a fantasy (Not a fantasy)
Just remember me (Just remember me)
When it turns out right (When it turns out right)

[Chorus: Miranda with Nathan, Noah & Jerry, Victoria with Leon, Daniella & Jennette, Miranda with Leon & Ariana, Victoria with Elizabeth, Victoria, Miranda]
'Cause there's no chance unless you take one
And the time to see
Now if you live your imagination (Yeah, yeah)
Tomorrow you'll be everybody's fascination
See the brighter side of every situation
In my victory (In my victory)
Just remember me
(Just remember me)

[Chorus: Victoria, Miranda with Leon & Ariana, Victoria, Miranda, Elizabeth & Jennette, Miranda & Victoria]
When I make it shine
Leave it all to me (Leave it all to me)
Leave it all to me
When I make it shine
Leave it all to me
When you're living your imagination
Leave it all to me
When I make it shine

[Post-Chorus: Miranda with Jennette, Nathan, Noah & Jerry
Leon with Elizabeth, Ariana & Daniella]
Leave it
Make it
Leave it
Make it
Leave it
Make it
Leave it

[Outro: Victoria, Miranda]
When I make it shine
Just leave it all to me

P.S. I hope it’s obvious but the song isn’t mine, just the memory attached to it.
