Saturn - Stevie Wonder (from songs in the key of life)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3KpUO6t9qQ

I'm......
Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
On Saturn
People live to be two hundred and five
Going back to saturn where the people smile
Don't need cars cause we've learn to fly
On Saturn
Just to live to us is our natural high

It's all good, Melanie, and just for fun! I do keep a running list of all places visited, but we are travelers and return to places with variety. Give links if you like for your favorite videos of such songs which add some spice to posts here and gives other companions a chance to hear the song if they don't know it without having to google it. Thanks for joining the journey as all TravBuddies are welcome anytime on this musical adventure around the world!

Re: Placename Songs (Around the World)

Brian, how's the count re the use of the word "World"?

Another set links for of three songs/videos for everyone, from another of my favorite artists, Corrinne Drewery and Andy Connell, better known as Swing Out Sister:

These three songs have the word "world" in their titles:

Somewhere in the World - https://youtu.be/N7Y8Sf9nkFw

Where in the World - https://youtu.be/HLzWhHKlPwM

Twilight World - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4rPkF3Drik

I know I've mentioned the latter two in previous posts (complete with lyrics), not sure about the first one.

Re: Placename Songs (Around the World)

OK, another song with "world" in the title:

From another of my favorite acts, Earth, Wind & Fire - in memory of their lead singer, the great Maurice White ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_TjT_ktsSY

THAT'S THE WAY OF THE WORLD

Hearts of fire creates love desire
Take you high and higher to the world you belong
Hearts of fire creates love desire
High and higher to your place on the throne

We come together on this special day
Sing our message loud and clear
Looking back, we've touched on sorrowful days
Future pass, they disappear
You will find peace of mind
If you look way down in your heart and soul
Don't hesitate 'cause the world seems cold
Stay young at heart, 'cause you're never, never old

That's the way of the world
Plant your flower and you grow a pearl
Child is born with a heart of gold
Way of the world makes his heart so cold

Hearts of fire create love desire take you
High and higher to the world you belong
Hearts of fire love desire
High and higher, yeah yeah yeah
Hearts of fire love desire
Ahh higher

We come together on this special day
Sung our message loud and clear
Looking back, we've touched on sorrowful days
Future disappears
You will find peace of mind
If you look way down in your heart and soul
Don't hesitate 'cause the world seems cold
Stay young at heart, 'cause you're never, never, never

That's the way of the world,
Plant your flower and you grow a pearl
Child is born with a heart of gold
Way of the world makes his heart so cold

Hearts of fire, love desire
High and higher, yeah yeah
Hearts of fire, love desire

Songwriters
VERDINE WHITE, MAURICE WHITE, CHARLES STEPNEY

Re: Placename Songs (Around the World)

I remember back in the mid 80's and you couldn't get away from that "We Are the World" song. Although it was a good cause, it was so overplayed I think almost everyone got sick of it after hearing it a thousand times.

That's the Way of the World is a good old tune from Earth, Wind & Fire. Never get tired of some of these old tunes, but something about "We Are the World" got on peoples nerves after a while. Don't hear it much anymore.
