The pop crooner brings on Jackie Wilson for a valiant stab at R&B Soul classicism


Music is inextricably woven into the spirit of human nature, we can often identify a song with only a few notes, and with these notes, find ourselves taken back in time, swept away by  memory and feelings. Music has the power to take us places through our senses. The music of the 60’s and 70’s offers an excellent example of this kind of experience. Music of this period represents a unique connection between sound and history. Happily, we are again and again drawn to this unique form of music, for both it’s quality and reflection. Music has always been a basic part of human life and can remind us of our own past experiences.

The truth is that music, even music which appears to be a protest written in order to give voice to some cause, in the end, is interpreted by the individual based on how it affects them personally. What maybe a heart break song to one person, is a haunting and beautiful ballad to another. No matter how a song is interpreted, there is no denying that music of the 60’s provided an unstoppable momentum, a kind of Pied Piper of Hamlin effect, calling on the people to follow. In Love….

Today, songs like To Be Loved continues to work magic in the hearts of listeners looking for music with grit, honesty, and soul. These songs continue to recreate the mood of times past. Simply put, To Be Loved, it’s message, carries on as it was meant to. Reminding us of the times in which it was born.

Music Review: Lourdes Baron – “To Be Loved”

Lourdes Baron

For some it’s hard to imagine a song like “To Be Loved”getting made these days. Even harder for some to imagine that they too….could be, “truly loved.”

“Oh what a feeling to be loved,” Baron croons. As she chases after love in furious pace, expertly.

 To experience this expansive rendition of pop, rock, soul, funk, doo-wop and stoned experimentation, well the sounds belting through the speakers at the moment puts forth a taste of hope in the plethora of love she seemingly, truly believes in.

To Be Loved…

Back in 2014 Lourdes Duque Baron’s arrival on the scene upped the ante and didn’t so much as nudge good feeling music along, as give it an almighty shove, after which rock and soul music would never be the same.

Lourdes’ remake of Jackie Wilsons, To Be Loved feels as if it’s been beamed in from another dimesion. It feels right. It feels good. A dazzling blues exhibition that will rightly cause music lovers to pause.

The psychedelic flummeries added to an already rich recipe makes for a master piece. It rarely detracts from the stand out casual brilliance that is so abundant. This chord, my friends is the note of the future arriving again…. In hopeful, innocent, inspirational, exciting, perplexing sometimes contradictory, for sure – but the future nonetheless.
