My all-time favorite song by my all-time favorite group. Doesn’t matter what’s going on in my life, it's always appropriate.

(Next time I’ll post my other favorite of theirs, “Barracuda,” just to mix it up here a bit.)

"Love Alive" by Heart, album Little Queen (1977)

The Sky was dark this morning
When I raised my head
I stood at the window -
Darkness was my bane

Suddenly a sunbeam arc
Thrilled me to my weary heart
It was the prettiest thing I'd ever seen

I knew I had to keep my Love
Keep my Love alive
Keep my Love - Keep my Love live

Baby I want you to roll me
Hold me in your love
No more habits, promises and jive
Ever since I was a baby girl
Wanted one thing most in this world
It was to Keep My Love -
Keep My Love alive

I want to keep my Love -
Keep my Love alive
Keep my Love - keep my love alive

You're up there under the spotlight
Your silver trophy shines
With all you got, my lord!
You must get high
You need a whole lot more than money
You need more than to survive
You gotta to keep your Love
Keep your Love alive

(I dare you to tell me that the middle instrumental/"ahhhh" part of the song didn't lift your spirits. I dare you...)
