Valentine’s Day Music Countdown: Song #13

Song #13 comes from Jefferson Starship.  “Miracles“, from their 1975 album, “Red Octopus”, was written by founding member and lead male vocalist Marty Balin.  This song is considered the masterpiece of his long career.  If he did nothing ever again after this song, what an accomplishment this piece of music is.

Inspired by the relationship he was in at the time, the song features a beautiful group dance between the music, the harmonies, the vocals and the lyrics.

The first time I heard this song I fell in love with the romance of Balin’s poetry:  “But from that very first look in your eyes I knew you and I had but one heart.”  Gorgeous.

Originally clocking in at 6:52  on the album, the single version was cut down to 3:25 to garner more radio play. The move worked as the song reached #3 on the charts for three weeks in a row.

Enjoy!!!

  1. I can hear windmills and rainbows
    Whenever you’re talkin’ to me (Never say never)
    I feel like swirling and dancin’
    Whenever you’re walking with me (Whenever you’re walking with me)

    Excellent- LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE this song. (who doesn’t?) 😉
