Topanga Windows

These days I'm more concentrated in psychedelic music and fortunately, today  I have found an amazing band that I would like to suggest you if you are fond of this kind of music. The band is called "Spirit" which I've never heard before. Right now I'm listening to their 1968 "Spirit" self-named album. It synchronizes folk, blues and psychedelic music and in some parts it even reminds me of early Pink Floyd. I've came across the "Spirit" by reading this post on the most famous rock musicians who died in strange occasions. Though, band's guitarist and vocalist Randy California didn't die in strange occasions (he died rescuing his son of drowning riptide), I found it quite interesting to read that Led Zeppelin made a plagiarism in stealing the intro part of "Stairway to Heaven" from the Spirit's song called "Taurus". But I liked the song called "Topanga Windows" more. Its lyrics astonishing and they embrace life philosophy that I always share with you here in my blog and in my everyday life. Listen to the song and check the lyrics out.



"Watching the world through our Topanga window
Seeing people running through their lives
Sunshine's warm through our Topanga window
The cat lies sleeping
Waiting for the night
Your time is going much too fast
You've got to slow it all down or it won't last
And what will be will soon end in your past by
Oh, Topanaga window
Window window window

People searching for a better season
Try to catch their moment on the run
Always asking, wanting what's the reason
What do you want when you just want to have some fun
Your time is going much too fast
You've got to slow it all down or it won't last
And what will be will soon end in your past by
Oh, Topanga window
Window window window

When you find your own Topanga window
Look and see just exactly where you've been
Spend your time behind Topanga window
Come out from the city and
Let the people fill you in
Your time is going much too fast
You've got to slow it all down or it won't last
And what will be will soon end in your past by
Oh, Topanga window
Window window window"

  1. I'm glad you love this tune. Me too! I especially love the singular three-note piano chord after the word "fun" that leads to the break. It exists in a sonic space all its own. May I suggest a correction in your lyric? It goes, "What will be will soon enough pass by...our Topanga window."

  2. Cool, the album is really amazing. By the way, recently the Spirit sued Led Zep for plagiarism: http://time.com/3528555/led-zeppelin-loses-first-round-in-stairway-to-heaven-lawsuit/
