Billy Joel once said "Some love is just a lie of the soul" in "A matter of trust". I hope this saying sounds a little better with my contribution, because even Madonna still believes in the power of love as she said In "Rescue me".


A blend of beloved singers

LIVE speaks of THE BEAUTY OF GRAY,
And that all we own is MENTAL JEWELRY,
But they never needed anyone to them about HEAVEN,

PEARL JAM is still ALIVE,
And in BLACK, we belong together,
Poor JEREMY, the reluctanted "wicked" ruled his world,

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS teaches us about CALIFORINCATION,
UNDER THE BRIDGE, downtown for Hillel,
BY THE WAY, "California rest in peace, simultaneous release,
California show your teeth, she's my priestess, I'm your priest",

They gave us back HIGHER GROUND born by STEVIE WONDER,
Who made us "Clap our hands just a little bit louder" in FINGERTIPS,
And dedicated THESE THREE WORDS to an OVERJOYED Africa with,
KEEP OUR LOVE ALIVE,

He is more than "Godfather of Soul" he is the true father of "Hip-Hop",
JAMES BROWN taught us SOUL POWER,
Because PAPA'S GOT (AND ALWAYS HAD) A BRAND NEW BAG,
And he will always be SUPERBAD,

YAHWEH gave us U2,
They are FAR AWAY, SO CLOSE,
With PRIDE (IN THE NAME OF LOVE),
All about ONE, becuase after all the promises made,
ALL THEY WANT IS YOU,

IRON LION ZION, My teacher named BOB MARLEY,
NO WOMAN, NO CRY, because as he taught us,
"Everything is gonna be alright",
He was the real BUFFALO SOLDIER,
With his REDEMPTION SONGS and THREE LITTLE BIRDS,

The REBEL WITHOUT A PAUSE, dear PUBLIC ENEMY,
WELCOME TO THE TERRORDOME, you still teach us,
With your brother KRS-ONE and the lost but not-forgotten,
SCOTT LA ROCK, you asked WHY IS THAT?,
Gave us EDUTAINMENT, and warned us that LOVE'S GONNA GET YOU!!,

I travelled THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD with THE BEATLES,
To find OLD BLUE EYES sings MY WAY,
As THE ROLLING STONES ask FOR SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL,
Maybe because YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT,
Or maybe you should just LET IT BE,
They always said that "Ava" taught him how to sing a "torch song",

UNFORGETTABLE is you NAT KING COLE,
As GEORGIA is with you RAY CHARLES,
WILLIE gave us CRAZY, (Patsy)
As KRIS gave us ME AND BOBBY MCGHEE, (Janis)
BOB DYLAN left MAGGIE'S FARM and picked up an electrical guitar,
Because JIMI taught him how to really play ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER,

DAVE, JOHN and BEN have picked up the torch,
And so have many others,
All we have to do is listen,
As GEORGE said in FREEDOM '90,
"Sometimes the clothes do not make the man",
As we travelled in a true believe in love, ELTON JOHN,
BEYOND THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD,

The dancer moves without a trace,
