"Light Up" as written by and Dennis De Young....
Light up everybody
Join us in this celebration
Light up and be happy
Sweet, sweet sounds will fill the air

Every day's a holiday when your lips meet mine
The music's keepin' time with our love
You are here, and so am I
The weather's quite divine
So pass me round your wine, lovely one

All I need is just one hit to get me by
'Cause baby when your near I'm halfway high

Light up, everybody
Join us in this celebration
Light up and be happy
Sweet, sweet sounds will fill the air

    General CommentAlmost sounds like a church song, except it's about smoking pot. If the lyrics aren't enough proof, listen to the sound just before the first sung words.

    General CommentMy dad disagrees, but I think that, as part of being high, he imagines his marajuana joint to be singing to him.

    And so he advises everyone to get one of their own.

    "pass me round your wine" - sure sounds like the joint is asking him to "share the love," so to speak.

    Great song.

    General CommentThe obvious play to marijuana is and was evident back then ('75). The middle section also deals with physical love:

    Every day's a holiday when your lips meet mine
    The music's keepin' time with our love
    You are here, and so am I
    The weather's quite divine
    So pass me round your wine, lovely one

    It's pretty blatant what the singer wants from his love here.

    General CommentIf you listen very carefully to the last 50 seconds or so of the song, you can clearly hear the words "smoke dope" being sung in the background several ttimes.
