Some Floating Poetry from EWF

 
Pure Gold, by Earth Wind & Fire
 
Well, this a really special song, that has captured my heart, my soul and my entire body from the very first time I heard it.
 
For some magical reason, unbeknownst to me, my youngest daughter likes it too (let me say, she likes it a lot!).
 
For those that like to have a reference of the album where to find this song, here is such reference:
 
 
 
 
 
 
For further reference, you may check it out at AOL Sessions, right up here:
 
 
This song is about realizing that in this world of today, where everything is NOW, we have lost perspective. The only thing that seems to matter is HAVING, instead of BEING: you can pretend to BE anything, as long as you HAVE the means to support that pretention, the ways to disguise yourself as what you would like to BE.
 
But if all that supports what you pretend to BE, if those means were no longer available to you for any reason ("Riches come and go…"), you would no longer be able to BE that what you pretended to BE.
 
This song says that your BEING is defined by what you LOVE, and how much you are capable of LOVING: ONLY LOVE IS PURE GOLD.
 
I could never agree more with my daughter that this song is special, really special.
 
 
But for those that really enjoy the "Floating Poetry" in its true dimension, let’s get down to business, ladies & gentlemen, the lyrics:
 
 
Walk in the Light
That shines so bright
Let your soul feel right
Love is pure gold, yeah
 
 
Won’t you wake up, wake up walk in the Light
Won’t you wake up, wake up bring substance in your life
Won’t you wake up, wake up walk in the light
Won’t you wake up, wake up, yeah
Where’s your heart, where’s your pride
Has it all been pushed aside
Life is dreams living high
Yet no substance in your life
It’s a hard world, I know
But don’t give into the lies
You have always been a star
Everything you need’s inside … your heart
 
 
Oooh, you’re life is special, really special, yeah
Your flesh just burns in your soul
Truth and lie were pleasure, they were pleasure
Riches come and go
Only Love is pure gold
 
Many hearts, many lives have been touched when you realize
That you are worthy, you’re the prize
But you have to heal inside
It’s a hard world, I know
But don’t give in to the lies
You have always been a star
Everything you need’s inside
 
 
(Say ‘ya) always on the ground (but cha), need some peace of mind (won’t cha)
Slow down, take your time, there’s a million ways to shine, yeah (when ‘ya)
Let the whirly thing (got cha) control your destiny
(‘Ya gotta) break or make a change (and then you’ll find your stars will align)
 
 
Oooh, you’re life is special, really special, yeah
Your flesh just burns in your soul
Truth and lie were pleasure, they were pleasure
Riches come and go
Only Love is pure gold
 
 
Won’t you wake up, wake up walk in the Light
Won’t you wake up, wake up bring substance in your life
Won’t you wake up, wake up walk in the light
Won’t you wake up, wake up, yeah
 
 
Oooh, you’re life is special, really special, yeah
Your flesh just burns in your soul
Truth and lie were pleasure, they were pleasure
Riches come and go
Only Love is pure gold
 
 
Hey, your love will help you find your treasure, have mercy… yeah
As you live from day to day
‘Cause only true love makes things better… yeah
‘Cause true love never fades away
 
 
I Like The Way You Move, by Earth Wind & Fire with Kenny G.
 
Well, this is a cute song, let me tell ya.
 
It is a superb cover from an original song by OutKast.
 
IMHO, the best part of the song goes to Kenny G. and the sound of that beauty of a soprano sax he plays. EWF did the best by giving the best shot to Kenny and just playing "second fiddle" in the background with a chorus (a perfect match to Kenny G’s sax!).
 
Being true to nature that the sax is the musical instrument that most closely resembles the tones of the human voice, Kenny G’s main part of this piece is really "a song".
 
If you have that special someone (to me, that special lady) for whom this song is intended to in your heart and your mind, well, you will concur with me that this song is truely Floating Poetry in your soul.
 
This goes out for anyone that vibrates to the rythm of the movements of her/his special someone, just like I do when I contemplate the movements of my special someone.
 
When I think of her beautiful grace on display just by her mere walk, I can say with Shakira that "hips don’t lie".
 
If you want to check this song out, try it here and enjoy (sorry, Kenny G does not play the sax in this live session!):
