Track #4 - Your Love Prevails
One of the heavier songs on the album, this is the one that gave us the description "Linda Ronstadt fronts Deep Purple." It's also got a Black Sabbath drum groove, for those of you scoring at home.
As I look back at the lyrics to the songs, I'm taken by how many times a phrase from Douglas Adams wanders across my brain, in search of something to connect with. (I think it just happened again, in fact). The 'music of the world' bit comes from the first Dirk Gently book, where Reg steals the music from the spaceship and passes it off as being by a non-existent composer named 'Bach'.
I need to get out more, evidently.
Your Love Prevails
Track #3 - Forgiveness Prayer
Our wordiest song is our simplest: if we fight to treat each other with kindness, the world will be a different, better place. There's a Douglas Adams quote (which doesn't fit the context, AT ALL) that was a huge help in writing this. We'll let you try to figure out which one.
A short clip of the song is available on the YouTubes.
