I know we are still facing a serious situation but a new year gives us hope for the new days, seasons, opportunities & moments ahead. Still, music is something that will never change for me. It is my refuge, the most comforting part of my life & the one thing I consistently count on. So until a more normal semblance of life returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.
In the 1970’s Eric Clapton’s long time back-up singer, Marcy Levy, co-wrote a few songs with him, including today’s pick. She can be heard on many of his hits like “Wonderful Tonight” (Day 86), “Promises” (Day 124), “I Shot The Sheriff” (Day 154) and “The Core”. Levy was born June 21, 1952 in Michigan. She worked with many other artists as well throughout her career until she decided to focus on her own music & band. Today she turns 69 years young. Happy birthday, Marcy. May you enjoy 100 more!
“Sun ain’t nearly on the rise
We still got the moon and stars above
Underneath the velvet skies, love is all that matters
Won’t you stay with me? Don’t you ever leave“.
