I have a confession to make about an obsession of mine. Before you get too excited, it’s something that I think the many of you are also quite fond of, Music! I love music, both listening to it and making it as well. More specifically, I am a huge fan of R&B/Soul Music, both old school and new school. I truly believe soul music provides a spiritual experience for both the listener and vocalist alike. All of that being said, on Wednesdays, I would like to review a featured love song. Some of the songs will be old classics and others will be new favorites.
The song featured today is ‘Endless Love’ a duet by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie. The song was produced by Lionel Richie and released in August of 1981. Here is a link to the song below…
“Endless Love” is a classic! Featuring two soulful voices over a soft piano, classic guitar, and whimsical strings, it is a truly stunning recording. Richie’s musical talent is tremendous and I am continuously inspired by his ability to play numerous instruments and write countless songs with such ease. The legendary Ms. Ross never disappoints with her bright warm tone and lovely lyrical accentuation. “Endless Love” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and became one of the best selling songs of Ross’s career.
The soulful ballad is about a couple professing their undying love towards one another and proving their eternal devotion. It illustrates two people that truly live for their union and the idea of two becoming one. The expression of having a soulmate is a deep spiritual experience in that your souls are intertwined far beyond the physical form. I believe this song truly conveys the essence of love.
