I feel it when the sun don't shine
hold my head and I clear my mind to save me
Im gonna save me
I won't hide no I wont play small
I stay grounded I can never fall you wont shake me
You'll never shake me
and I don't care what people say ill do it my way

So Long all my fears
I'm ready for the day
if I lose some then I lost them
What more can I say

I know there's a darker side
the ones that only feed their pride
Their aching oh their aching
I long for a higher plane
Don't forget my mama gave me my name you don't make me
Nah you don't make
And I when I see that rising sun
I know my time has finally come

So Long all my fears
Im ready for the day
if I lose some then I lost them
What more can I say

I popped in to give this song a 7 before she even finished the first verse. 
Bumped to an 8 at the chorus. 
I hope to hear this on frequent* rotation here.

* 'frequent' by RP standards means once a month or so.



no, as of late it means pretty much daily or every 3 days. but not this song. it's been only a week. and then 2 weeks prior.

Yeah.... this is getting a bit overplayed, though it's hard to complain at 2:12 which is an incredibly short track.
 
I do kind of wish that play time would be allocated toward more deep dives into some of the more obscure 1970s/1980s/1990s tracks.  I'm sure there are some real gems out there that RP could really bring to the surface.
This is very spirited. Plus contemporary. Thank you, RP.

But hey, William , play some Tina Turner also. 
 Or does Radio Paradise now refer to a place where you just started from?



when there's nothing left to burn, you must set yourself on fire.

At what point does it become "Alanna & William" that we are thanking for introducing us to great new stuff like this? Now, right?

Any time. Covering creep and making something special is not an easy feat. Few songs have been covered (and butchered ) more
