Embrace the Notion...

Global Love...an interesting concept indeed. Everything else is going global these days: technology, economy, arts, culture, etc. What about love though? In my song Global Love, I talk about the concept of there being an intangible  source of love that surrounds us, in the air we breathe, in the words we speak, but most of us don't realize this or stop to think about it. I guess that's the metaphorical way of looking at it but in the end, it comes down to choices we make about how we treat others and about facing our fears. When you boil it down to a simple concept, people are typically taught to be afraid and weary of what is different from what their culture is familiar with. To state an overused cliche, we all have blood circulating in our veins, deep down we are the same.We have similar basic needs...we like to laugh, to sing, to dance....

And that's where I'm going with this song. The love is out there for us to grab and make a part of our lives, to share with each other, and it is MUSIC that is the common denominator in any nation that will always bring people together. To quote from the song's lyrics:

I've got a plan/ to infect this planet as much as I can/ with the message of global love riding this funky jam/ let it permeate your soul and make you clap your hands/ 'cause the music's the universal thread through every land/ Just like you found this melody/ you can find civility, compassion, even love/ its the only way to rise above all this hate/ before it gets too late/ I'll put my faith in you and you can put your faith in me/ embrace the notion and you'll see.....

I wrote this song several years ago and have recently re-mastered it for release with my EP. I would say that my influences of Jamiroquai and Stevie Wonder show up on this track. If this song makes you tap your feet, nod your head or snap your fingers, then I've succeeded...the music and the rhythm is in you, and you've taken the intangible and made it a part of you.

Got to be a Global Love, that's the plan I'm thinking of!

 

Peace.
