Musical Musings A to Z: K is for Lenny Kravitz
I’ve decided to pull myself away from my Eurovision addiction just long enough to continue with my musical quest through the alphabet. You can catch my earlier A to Z musical musings below:
Before I move on, is anyone else addicted to Eurovision too? I can’t wait for the final tonight – should be a ball!
Anyway, onto my K artist. Lenny Kravitz is one of my all-time favourite artists. His career has spanned decades, musical genres and hairstyles but he seems to rock everything he puts his hand to. He’s even a half-decent actor – did you happen to catch him in The Hunger Games?
I love his rock stuff, his pop stuff, his ballads and his soul classics. It was incredibly hard to come up with only a few songs to feature today but I hope you enjoy the songs I have included below…
Slow and powerful, this song has a strong acoustic guitar introduction before ramping up with drums, bass and guitar. I’m not religious by any means, but this song speaks to me with it’s inherent passion and belief.
It Ain’t Over til it’s Over
Funky and showcasing his retro musical influences, this song is smooth. This is the first song I ever heard from Lenny Kravitz and I fell instantly in love – instant pop classic.
Are You Gonna Go My Way?
Again featuring his strong retro influences, this rock classic is one of his best. This album holds a special place in my heart as it was released in 1993, during my HSC year at school. Some interesting memories are intertwined with this song and the rest of this album…
Make sure you come back and check in on the remainder of my musical quest through the alphabet!
