Black Pumas – I Am in Love

I love this group. Their music embodies pretty much everything I love: a little blues, some serious lead guitar, great lyrics, perfectly-pitched voices, and toe-tapping rhythm. They are “an American psychedelic soul band” from Austin, Texas and theyt won their first Grammy in 2020 as Best New Artists. I heard their song “Colors” today and was reminded just how much I love their sound. I am including it below along with the lyrics.

Let me know what you think.

I woke up to the morning sky first

Baby blue just like we rehearsed

When I get up off this ground

I shake leaves back down to the brown brown brown till I’m clean

Then I walked where I’d be shaded by the trees by a meadow of green

For about a mile I’m headed to town town town in style

With all my favorite colors

All my favorite colors

My sisters and my brothers see them like no other

All my favorite colors

It’s good day to be a good day for me a good day to see my favorite colors

My sisters and my brothers they see them like no other

All my favorite colors

Now take me to the otherside

Where the baby blues birds fly

In grey clouds, or white walls, or blue skies we gon’ fly feel alright

Now we gon’ woo oo woo oo woo oo ya

They sound like woo oo woo oo woo oo ya

The least I can say I anticipate a homecome parade as we renegade in the morning

All my favorite colors

All my favorite colors

My sisters and my brothers see them like no other

All my favorite colors

It’s good day to be, a good day for me, a good day to see my favorite colors

My sisters and my brothers they see them like no other

All my favorite colors
