The King Blues - I Got Love

“This feeling, I can’t let it go!” It’s exciting to have high-energy pop songs joyfully singing about the power of love. The development of the song is pure pop – an acoustic guitar starts off the track, with an organist and several percussionists quickly joining in the fun. Fun to hear, fun to jump around to. “These walls, they can’t contain us!” One of the singers throws in enough of a twist on the word ‘walls’, that it can almost be heard as “these wars can’t contain us.” Very nice twist, and perfect sentiment to share with the old folks who think either way – because neither walls nor wars are necessary when love is in control. Shoutout for the even more jumping ska flavors of The Streets Are Ours! The percussion break is pure perfection. King Blues
