Throwback Emotions

Today we're looking backwards to enjoy what's forward. I'm stuck somewhere in between the two, listening to tunes like this.

Love was a band that peaked in the 60s and 70s, brilliantly combining rock with funk, soul, folk and a healthy dose of the drugged-out psychedelic feel that the era was so well known for. While technically active right up until the mid nineties (and a brief stint in the 2000s), frontman and visionary Arthur Lee was one of the only mainstays of the group up until his death in 2006. An inspiration for countless bands to follow them, Love are cited by many as massive contributors to the psychedelic, punk and prog movements.

And today, most importantly to me right now, this song plays like a chorus on high.

-So my heart pump pump pump once more, just to feel itself
