From the album Listen To The Music

In cart Not available Out of stock

I wrote "Escucha La Musica" (Listen To The Music) in collaboration with songwriter Dave Merenda in a 24 hour marathon session in his LA studio several years ago. It’s still one of my favorite songs because it feels so complete, and the experience raised my personal bar for songwriting. The song has a Latin feel and a message about coming together across borders and languages through music.

Lyrics

Let’s all come together
And dance to the music
My sisters and brothers
Let’s love one another

I am contagious, I am the melody I sing
I am the music that makes you want to dance with me
I am the children, who are living in the street
Wondering and wondering if they will get enough to eat

I’m a container and I’ll hold your suffering
I will transform it into this song that we sing
Come on and be with me, make the world a better place
Let this rhythm put a smile on your face

So put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Shake your body, shake your body, shake it to the ground
Put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Shake your body, shake your body, shake it to the ground

Escucha la musica, listen to the music x4

I'm the beginning
And this feeling that I bring ignites the music
It makes all the bells ring
In all the churches, the mosques and the temples too
Come on now people, show me what you can do

So put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Shake your body, shake your body, shake it to the ground x 4

Escucha la musica, listen to the music x4

Let’s all come together, and dance to the music
My sisters and brothers, let’s love one another
Let’s all come together, and dance to the music
My sisters and brothers, we’re all a part of the same world

All the people in the cars, the couples in the bars
I wanna see you wanna see you wanna see you get up
I wanna see you move, I wanna see you groove
Sing along sing
Put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Right hand, left hand and shake it to the ground
Put your hands on your hips, come on
Shake your body shake your body shake it!

Baila a la musica, dance to the music x 4

Escucha la musica, listen to the music
x4

Escucha la musica
Escucha la musica
Escucha la musica
Listen to the music!
