Wendy Jane’s Weekend Sounds: The Man by Aloe Blacc

2 Mar

When I first heard The Man by Aloe Blacc on the radio, I wasn’t sure what I thought of it.  I couldn’t tell what kind of song it was. Initially, it felt like an epic patriotic song by a country singer.   I didn’t know it was Aloe, who I love, and have featured here on WJSS twice before with his rendition of Billie Jean, and Dollar.

 

But then the more I heard it, still not knowing it was Aloe, it grew on me, and now I love it.  It makes me feel hope deep down in my bones, and then it makes me feel like I can soar.  It makes me think of this Emily Dickinson quote:

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.
                                                                      – Emily Dickinson
And now, The Man by Aloe Blacc –
