In celebration of all things sunny, and to promote an enriched environment, Parking Suns now features every Sunday a different YouTube music clip about the sun!
For this week’s entry, there are no suns in the lyrics per se, but the singers sing about daylight, which of course comes from the sun:
Tonight, tonight, we’re gonna taste a little paradise
Rock it all night long, baby all night long
I’ll still be lookin’ in your ebony eyes
And we’ll go on and on, and on
The two singers are Dennis Edward and Siedah Garrett. Dennis Edward was a lead singer for the Temptations (see Sunny Sundays from a few weeks ago), and he passed away this week.
According to the New York Times’ obit,
Mr. Edwards’s resonant, powerful voice, burnished from years singing gospel, was perfect for the driving soul music of the 1970s.
“Marvin Gaye was a friend of mine, and he used to say, ‘Man, I wish I could sing like you, if I could have that growl in my voice,’ ” Mr. Edwards told The Tallahassee Democrat in 2013. “And I said, ‘Man, are you kidding me? I want to sing like you. Everybody wants to sing like you.’ “
