David Bowie - Let's Dance #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and right doing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi

 Lately, I have been working very hard on my job and in my business. This said, it is difficult to find the time to express myself.

I do want to tell you a story about a dear friend of mine. She has been beat up by life like we all have and from the stories I have heard maybe a bit more than most. That is not her dilemma. Her problem is that she needs to be loved. I give her my love but it is not just anyone’s affection, it’s the love from someone she cares for deeply. I advised her to go out and socialize, meet people, find someone that will love you and she shook her head… Saying very clearly "I can’t and that won’t fix it." Why?

Then she told my why. She said every choice she made in life about, love, marriage, friendships and the results of trauma were based on taking what was easy and not believing she was worthy of something special. Then she explained to me that she had met someone that was different, that intrigued her, that threw her emotions upside down and completely out of control. She told me that this was the very first time she had not made a decision to love or get involved with someone. “It just happened” were her exact words "effortlessly".

Well then what is the problem I asked her, go get him. Take a risk make your dreams happen and she said she had done this; however for a complexity of reasons, he stepped out of the picture. So what now…was my last question on the subject?

She said "it’s up to him…" She said "I love him and always will… My heart is open… He is worthy of my love no matter what has transpired between us… I want him in my life and if that cannot happen then I will walk alone…"

I pray every night that God hands her the gift of love that she seeks from the person she loves…

The artist and song I am going to feature tonight speaks to this love and the ability to stand fast for those things in life you truly want without anything accepting less. "Let's Dance" is the song title and the singer is none other than the brilliant David Bowie. The song was on the 1983 album of the same name. It was also released as the first single from that album in 1983, and went on to become one of his biggest-selling tracks. Stevie Ray Vaughan played the guitar solo at the end of the song.

The single was one of Bowie's fastest selling, entering the UK Singles Chart at number five on its first week of release, staying at the top of the charts for three weeks. Soon afterwards, the single topped the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Bowie's second and last single to reach number 1 in the U.S.  It was published on YouTube Mar 6, 2009 by emimusic. BTW the video looks like it was made in Australia!!!

Its genre is considered Funk, post-disco, dance-pop, funk rock. I have listed the lyrics for your reading pleasure.

“Let’s Dance
Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah

(Let's Dance) Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
(Let's Dance) To the song they're playing on the radio
(Let's Sway) While colour lights up your face
(Let's Sway) Sway through the crowd to an empty space

If you say run, I'll run with you
If you say hide, we'll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall, into my arms
And tremble like a flower
(Let's Dance)

(Let's Dance) For fear your grace should fall
(Let's Dance) For fear tonight is all
(Let's Sway) You could look into my eyes
(Let's Sway) Under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

And if you say run, I'll run with you
And if you say hide, we'll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall, into my arms
And tremble like a flower

(Let's Dance) Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
(Let's Sway) Under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

Let's Sway [x2]
Let's Dance [x5]

Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight. PS... take love seriously. It's what gives life depth. 

Love and Peace always
