An old ADAT recording I found of an old version of the band. I wanted to include it because it's a song we used to play in the very early days when the band first formed in the early 80's. Because it was already mixed as a stereo version, I had limited ability to clean it up, and could not deal with each instrument individually so we just equalized it the best I could. Definitely a look back.


Thing Called Love
by John Beccia

Friday night and dancing in the street
All the summer styles are out there in the heat
All those smiles, so many there to meet
Searchin' for a thing called love

Friday night and somethin's goin' on
All the country folk have headed into town
All those people everywhere around
Searchin' for a thing called love

REFRAIN - Conversations flowin' out so free
Inhibitions lost and tossed so readily
All the music, all the energy
Searchin' for a thing called love

Friday night and moon is on the rise
Lookin' for it's light in someone elses eyes
Will she lead me off into the skies
Searchin' for a thing called love



Called love
Called love
Called love

Their original songs center on themes of social equity and justice, environmental consciousness, love, and respect for others. ... more
