Personally, I love this band.
Two of my favorite songs are "Fly Like An Eagle", and "The Joker".
Fly Like An Eagle is both relaxing, and inspirational. Relaxing in that it just takes me away from everything, and no matter what it puts me in a good mood. The lyrics are inspiring, and beautiful. My favorite would definitely have to be:
Feed the babies
Who don't have enough to eat
Shoe the children
With no shoes on their feet
House the people
Livin' in the street
Oh, oh, there's a solution
These talk about the problems in the world of today, and just give a simple solution to each one. Now if only it was that easy...*sigh*
Point is, I never hear any lyrics about the world's flaws, and how we can help. Maybe it's just the stuff I listen too...
I guess the reason why I appreciate this song so much is because I like helping out people, and the world in anyway I can. I do my best to conserve water, electricity, etc. I'm also an Eagle Scout, and have done many hours of community service, and helped many people. Now I'm just bragging....sorry haha.
But doing canned food drives, giving clothes to the homeless, reading to the elderly, etc. These are all good things everyone can do, but unfortunately many don't. Now I'm putting a possible guilt trip on everyone...again, my apologies.
The Joker is just the best. So chill, and good vibes all around. Talking about mid night toking, joking, etc. All these I do. Well, most of it anyway..
After making this thread, and writing my thoughts, I realized I really enjoy listening to music that relates to my life. Of course I like pop, and all that stuff of todays top songs, but I definitely have a greater appreciation for the music that actually influences, or relates to my life.
