Shine a Light
NEW FROM UNIQUE MUSIQUE!! Legion of Love KICK IT FUNKIFIED WITH SHINE A LIGHT From Legion of Love, the T.Dot collective which brought you Love Is The Answer and World in Motion, here's something to get all loose with on the dance floor. "Shine A Light' comes on like Prince and Pharrell Williams jamming in The Commitments basement. Greasy soulful vocals slide up on snaky guitar licks while psyched out keyboards and kickass drums keep the good groove going. Uplifting, booty shaking, guaranteed to get the arms in the air and waving like they just don't care. As is the case in all Legion of Love recordings, Shine A Light was truly the result of the creative collective process. In this case a little outside the usual mix of writers, musicians and producers which appear on most LOL product. "The essence of the song just happened one day to a fellow legionnaire", says LOL musical director Brentwood Haynes. "We knew there was something there right away but no one was in any hurry to develop it. Eventually we all agreed that it was our obligation to help with the musical manifestation so we decided to bear down and finish writing it. As corny as it sounds, once we started recording it was as if some greater power was shining down on us."
