Music soothes the savage beast…

Ahhhh… got on iTunes tonight and downloaded a bunch of “old” R&B from the ’70s… the stuff I learnt to groove to… Earth, Wind & Fire… Kool & the Gang… The Manhattans… Marvin Gaye… The Miracles… Salve for the soul this stuff is. It lifted my spirits and got my bootie scootin’ in my chair. I learned to dance from Denny Gilkes, a black girl in my 5th grade class. We lady-bumped until my hips hurt but damn I got it. Girl, you gave me my groove and I am forever grateful, even though I have a whole lot more to groove with these days.

And so I leave you with this…

Earth Wind & Fire – Fantasy Lyrics
Maurice White, Eddie delBarrio & Verdine White

Every man has a place, in his heart there’s a space,
And the world can’t erase his fantasies
Take a ride in the sky, on our ship fantasii
All your dreams will come true, right away

And we will live together, until the twelfth of never
Our voices will ring forever, as one

Every thought is a dream, rushing by in a stream,
Bringing life to our kingdom of doing
Take a ride in the sky, on our ship fantasii
All your dreams will come true, miles away

Our voices will ring together until the twelfth of never,
We all, will live forever, as one

Come see victory, in the land called fantasy
Loving life, a new decree,
Bring your mind to everlasting liberty

Our minds will explore together, old worlds, we conquer, forever
We then, will expand love together, as one

Come to see, victory in a land called fantasy,
Loving life, for you and me, to behold, to your soul is ecstasy
You will find, other kind, that has been in search for you,
Many lives has brought you to
Recognize it’s your life, now in review
And as you stay for the play, fantasy, has in store for you,
A glowing light will see you through

It’s your day, shining day, all your dreams come true
As you glide, in your stride with the wind, as you fly away
Give a smile, from your lips, and say
I am free, yes I’m free, now I’m on my way
