Crystal Blue Persuasion by Tommy James & the Shondells

crystal blue persuasion lyrics

Based on the lyrics, though, I have difficulty believing that it was about meth. He is best known for dance-oriented mambo and Latin jazz compositions that helped keep his career going for 50 years. It has kind of an effervescent sound about it, a lot of atmospherics that just weren't there when it had all those instruments on it. It really was a very intricate un-production, pulling all the things out. I gotta tell you what — we were in Hawaii at the foot of Diamond Head. After spending 3 weeks at 2, it spent the next 2 weeks at 3. I don't think the Rosman's own it now.

Crystal Blue Persuasion Lyrics

crystal blue persuasion lyrics

The sun is a'rising Most definitely A new day is coming, ooh, ooh People are changing Ain't it beautiful, ooh, ooh Crystal blue persuasion Better get ready To see the light Love, love is the answer, ooh ooh And that's all right So don't you give up now, ooh ooh So easy to find Just look to your soul And open your mind Crystal blue persuasion, mmm, mmm It's a new vibration Crystal blue persuasion Crystal blue persuasion Maybe tomorrow When he looks down On every green field, ooh ooh And every town All of his children And every nation They'll be peace and good brotherhood Crystal blue persuasion, yeah Crystal blue persuasion, aha Crystal blue persuasion, aha Crystal blue persuasion, aha. And 'Crystal Blue Persuasion' was sort of our way of saying that in a kind of pop record way. Embrace it and allow the sun to luminate your soul. One of the questions was regarding where he got the idea for his song Crystal Blue Persuasion and whether he got the idea from reading a blue book. He was inspired by his reading of the book of Ezekiel where it speaks of the Blue Shekinah Light which represented the presence of the Almighty God and the Books of Isaiah and Revelation where it speaks of a bright future of a brotherhood of mankind living in peace and harmony. Remember, just because meth labs are springing up all over the country, that doesn't mean that crank is anything new.

This would have made a great performance at Woodstock, and the song was peaking on the charts at the time of the famous festival. As 1968 was a turbulent and violent year, the new year of 1969 implied promises of peace and universal brotherhood, like the Age of Aquarius, whose feeling permeated the time. And suddenly it became 'Crystal Blue Persuasion,' the song that we had written. The imagery was just right there. Look over yonder, what do you see The sun is a-rising yeah most definitely A new day is coming, people are changing Ain't it beautiful, crystal blue persuasion Crystal blue persuasion oh yeah, it's a new vibration Crystal blue persuasion, crystal blue persuasion Better get ready, gonna see the light I said love love is the answer and that's alright So don't you give up now Better look to your soul, and then open your mind Oh yeah.

The color blue is used throughout, from the different clothing they wear, to their blue gloved hands while in the lab, to the sky blue horizon. The lyrics in this song will happen very soon. This song projects the new movement coming. When I talked to co-writer Eddie Gray several years ago, I asked whether this was a poor memory on my part, or an urban legend. The sun is a-risin' Most definitely A new day is comin', whoo-hoo People are changin' Ain't it beautiful, whoo-hoo Crystal blue persuasion Better get ready Gonna see the light Love, love is the answer, whoo-hoo And that's all right So don't you give up now, whoo-hoo It's so easy to find Just look to your soul Look to your soul And open your mind Crystal blue persuasion Mm-hmm It's a new vibration Crystal blue persuasion Crystal Blue persuasion Maybe tomorrow When he looks down On every green field, whoo-hoo And every town All of his children In every nation There'll be peace and good Brotherhood Crystal blue persuasion Yeah Crystal blue persuasion, aha Crystal blue persuasion, aha Crystal blue persuasion, aha Oh Crystal blue persuasion, aha Crystal blue persuasion, aha Crystal blue persuasion, aha Crystal blue persuasion, aha. Not from a book, not from a church.

And basically ended up with about four instruments on it. And our biggest decision of the day was, Do I go in the ocean or in the swimming pool? In our world there will be peace and good brotherhood that will be forever. First of all, I was becoming a Christian at that time, and we never thought a thing about it. And one by one we just started pulling the instruments out, until we ended up with a conga drum, a bongo, a tambourine, a flamenco guitar, and a very light-sounding bass. The imagery was right out of Chapter 19 of the Book of Revelation, about the lake of crystal, and just what John sees.

He guest starred on several television shows including Sesame Street, The Cosby Show and The Simpsons. There is a video of it on Pat King's website. And I get this call from JoAnn, my secretary, and she said, 'Artie Kornfeld was up,' Artie Kornfeld was one of the principals at Woodstock, and he was also a friend of mine. It says up there during an interview he got it from Revelation 19. Crystal Blue Persuasion is clearly about methamphetamine. When he wrote this song, Tommy James was working with a group called Alive 'N Kickin'. To me it sounds like it came from the bible and that's alright by me.

CRYSTAL BLUE PERSUASION Lyrics

crystal blue persuasion lyrics

And by Thursday of that week we knew we messed up really bad. So it came out and went 1 for us. The tune plays while a montage of the making and distributing of crystal meth, as well as the reaping of its financial rewards, is shown. I always liked it and thought it was pretty, but it was years before I realized it had a deeper meaning with references to God and brotherhood. He and his music appear in many films such as The Mambo Kings and Fernando Trueba's Calle 54. You will see so clearly what we need to do to cause a revolution called the Crystal Blue Presuasion. I like the lyrics and the music.
