  7. Chemical needs

    Chemical needs stirring

    The opening lines of this never fail to raise a positive vibe :) :

    There's a section in this mix starting at around 50:00 consisting of the following tracks:
    35. K Vibes – Frenemies
    36. The Heptones – How Can I Leave You
    37. Glen Washington – Love Knows No Shame
    Which is soothing and stirring and makes me think of the mrs ... :oops: :D

    A song I acquired from Dirty Martini, formerly of these boards, which doesn't seem to be on youtube so I've uploaded it here The Merricks - Sternzeichen Jungfrau:

    Not sure why this feels positive but somehow it works. Couple of minutes of fretwankery before it gets bouncily positive

    I don't think any version of this has been posted here yet, though there are a few.
    Personally, this one always sends shivers down me, body and soul...

    However --
    I can't let this thread exist without one of the most upbeat, positive, life-loving, self-affirming songs I know. It's just a shame that many people won't like it .. and for that reason before I post the link I'm going to post the lyrics to show why it's included here :p

    You, you say that you have lost the way
    Got no aim, just livin' for today
    Look up to the sky above
    And see the morning sun again
    You've got so much power inside
    So cry it out my friend .. I'm alive!

    There's no use in hangin' all around -
    You're a king, can't you see your crown?
    Look into my eyes, so many things are waiting to be done!
    You just need a friend,
    Together we will sing along .. I'm alive!

    I'm alive, I'm alive...

    I'm going to add this too .. Cheesy yes, but right.
    (tbf the least cheesy version I know of .. plus it features a cameo from Ian Dury)

    Always reminds of Be Reasonable: Demand the Impossible!
