Song Description

this is a 70's groove that sounds a bit like Fleetwood Mac with its natural big-room drums, pleasant piano and grooving bass. Acoustic guitar strums throughout along with a glockenspiel motif creating a childlike, joyful love call to the sun: "it's a perilous life without our battery sun" sweetly and oddly sings the chorus, and the cycle of choosing darkness or light is couched in an easy, toe-tapping groove. "Let the sun shine ...."

Story Behind the Song

One day, the sun returned and happiness was automatically enhanced. What would we do without the sun giving us physical and mental positive energy? I used the metaphor of the sun giving my soul the food it needed after the soul engaged in a darker period that was sadly much more rooted on the ground.
