    after that spate of posts this morning, i flipped a tape and went to fix breakfast.

    i suddenly started hearing what was playing:

    "MIGHTY MIGHTY
    Maurice White & Verdine White
    Walk around, why wear a frown
    Say little people, try to put you down
    What you need, a helpin' hand
    All the strength, at your command

    How's ya faith? Cause ya faith is you
    Who you kiddin', to yourself be true
    Spread ya love, for a brighter day
    For what ya search, you'll find a way

    We are people, of the mighty
    Mighty people of the sun
    In our hearts lies all the answers
    To the truth you can't run from

    Eagle flies, every seven days
    Still cryin the blues, all about ya pay
    What ya gonna do? Bout your living thang
    Will ya make it better, or just complain

    Everday is real, don't run from fear
    Cause better days are very near
    There are times when you are bound to cry
    One more time, head to the sky

    We are people, of the mighty
    Mighty people of the sun
    In our hearts lies all the answers
    To the truth you can't run from"

    there's that Axe again!!

    and, then of course, there's Devotion, Kalimba's Song, Fair But So Uncool .. indeed "Open Our Eyes"!!!

    ain't it just cool the way our "classic r&b" artists just kept tossing up Truth?!! where are those truths in today's lyrics ... <sigh> sadly, they are right there, tho, aren't they ... "that's the way of the world" then, and "that's the way of the world" now ...

    (breakfast done got cold ...)
