Description
I used to get annoyed by this song, hearing it over and over again on the radio, but, listening closely to it with h e a d p h o n e s on - as beloved Sharon recently discovered too - I found out it is a masterpiece. Masterpiece. Dot.

The Brothers first big hit in 1972, it peaked at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1972. # 3 in California. # 7 in Holland (do the Dutch have better taste than Amerians?). # 29 in the UK (do the English have the worst taste of ’m all ?). No. These: # 50 in Australia.

It was written and sung by guitarist and vocalist Tom Johnston. Patrick Simmons, the second guitarist and vocalist in the group, sings the bridge of the song (the part that has the flanging effect).

LISTEN TO THE MUSIC
(Tom Johnston)

Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
All the time

Don’t you feel it growin, day by day
People gettin’ ready for the news
Some are happy, some are sad
gonna let the music play

What the people need is a way to make them smile
Ain’t so hard to do if you know how
Gotta get a message, get it on through
Oh now Mama gonna get that after a while

Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
All the time
Yeah, ooh

Well I know you know better, everything I say
Meet me in the country for a day
We’ll be happy and Mama will dance
Well my Mama gonna dance our blues away

And if I’m feelin’ good to you baby and you’re feelin’ good to me
There ain’t nothin’ we can’t do or say
Feelin’ good, feeling fine
Well now Mama gonna let myself unwind

Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
All the time

Like a lazy flowing river surrounding castles in the sky
And the crowd is growing bigger
And they’re listenin’ for the happy sounds
And I got to let them fly

Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
All the time

Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
All the time

Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
All the time

Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
All the time

Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
All the time

Oh, listen to the music
Listen to the music, once just listen to the music
Oh, listen to the music
Once just listen to the music, once just listen to the music
Oh, list
