Pure

Pure by Blue Six

This is one of my favorite songs on a music compilation I’ve had for years: Nude Dimensions Vol. 2, mixed by Mauricio Aviles. The Petalpusher remix of Pure used in this mix is from Miguel Migs. It encapsulated the San Francisco deep house sound that was well-supported by a few great record labels (OM, Naked, etc.) and world-class DJs and producers (Kaskade, Gabriel & Dresden, Hideo Kobayashi, David Harness). For me, it continued the evolution of what Chicago and New York began.

As with many things bubbling beneath the surface of consciousness, I had the urge to listen to this song, but had lost the CD. I don’t think I ever made a backup copy and had to do an internet search for the particular mix. Viola!

I had to remember some of the lyrics to find the correct song, which prompted me to look at them in their entirety. And I think many of you will relate. The emotional weight of the song definitely stems from vocalist Monique Bingham co-writing it. **Go check out her website and support the career of a beautiful soul with a purpose!

some people look for love
settle when they’ve looked enough
others will take their time
takes too long they’ll soon find
some people need their fears
they think it makes life clear
no one’s on earth alone
yet everyone’s on their own

someday one day maybe
somehow, not now and you will find
what you lose
  once you have peace of mind
most start out with great ambition
years gone by
lose your time lose your mind
drink that wine, drink that wine

look at me i’m pure
everything that i am i adore
it’s the reason that life is for
it’s my heart that i need to be sure
keep it pure
be pure, anything that you dare and more
every nap of my hair i’m pure
what you love at the root, at the core
keep it pure

some start out looking for love
settle up when they’ve looked enough

looked enough, looked enough
most people think they have time
to begin life
they’re so wrong
they’re so wrong
they’re so wrong, so wrong
what i dream of, if i dream hard enough
will become mine
if i don’t run out of all my time
most people have intuition
to love life
love your life
feel alive, oh for you feel alive

feel alive
look at me i’m
free
