Let’s Talk About Love

by | Nov 16, 2017 | 2 comments

Let’s talk about love…. I love that line in the song, ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ by Foreigner, an influential rock band in the late 70’s and 80’s.

Yes, I am a rocker girl at heart and attending concerts was, and still is, one of my favourite things to do. At a live concert I can feel the energy of the music, the crowd, the band, all in an amplified way. I get lost in the emotions of the music for a couple of hours and leave with a higher vibration.

I relived my younger days last Monday when I saw Foreigner for their 40th Anniversary Tour! Holy wow, 40 years ago seems like a long time and now you know how old I am. Actually I’m 47 and I grew up with this music, my Mom exposed me to all types of music.

It was an incredible concert, these guys still know how to put on an amazing show after all these years and I had not seen them before.

What I loved most, and what I want to share with you, is the message they sent loud and clear. Before playing the song they asked us all to focus on our heart, feel positivity and hug one another, whoever was near us. It was pretty cool seeing everyone do that at a rock concert and I could feel the vibration of the place go way up!

Then they played this song and everyone was singing together, swaying to the music, feeling love in their hearts.

When they play this song they always have a youth choir as their back up and this time they had a local school youth choir (Wilson Secondary School in Whitby, Ontario) backing them up. How awesome is that!?  The band’s message, besides bringing love to each of us, was to bring awareness to the importance of having music programs in schools.

I recorded the last 3 minutes of the song and the shout out to the choir. See the video here to feel the love vibe.

I also found the lyrics to the song online to share with you below.

Read through them, isn’t this what all of us want? To know what love is? To feel what love is? To be what love is? My mission is to show you what love is by being it and giving it whenever and wherever I can.

Are you with me?

Let’s spread love, especially to those who really need it, the lonely ones, the ones who are forgotten, who are in pain, who are afraid to open their heart because they got hurt bad and they don’t want to feel that pain again.

Show someone love every day and that includes to YOU. It doesn’t have to be a big thing, simple acts go a long way.

I’d love to hear from you, what are your thoughts? How do you show love to others?

With love …. Lorree

“I Want To Know What Love Is” by Foreigner

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
Through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I’m gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I’ve got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
I can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let’s talk about love
I wanna know what love is, the love that you feel inside
I want you to show me, and I’m feeling so much love
I wanna feel what love is, no, you just cannot hide
I know you can show me, yeah

I wanna know what love is, let’s talk about love
I want you to show me, I wanna feel it too
I wanna feel what love is, I want to feel it too
And I know and I know, I know you can show me
Show me love is real, yeah
I wanna know what love is…

    That is certainly something I miss too: going to (pop)concerts.
    As a musician myself, I really can enjoy a good performance. My problem is: I also listen “as a musician”, so when a band is sloppy – in a “I don’t care” kind of way – that spoils it all for me. )-: But if the band is really into it and the audience reponds to that, it can be magic.
    Andrew Latimer (guitarist of Camel) kan really go “straight to the heart” when he is bending the strings. But also just great performances, carried out with the right intention do the trick. Or as ex-Zappa Napoleon Murphy Brock said: “We’re not playing Frank’s music, but we are making LOVE to it.”
    These are the vibes you (want to) feel: LOVE for the music. And maybe music is LOVE?!
    Or as the late Frank Zappa himself says in one of his countless songs:
    “Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. Truth is not beauty. Beauty is not love. Love is not music. Music is THE BEST.”
