Halo – Keep Reaching

OK now to house favourites. This track by Halo just keeps finding its way to the top of my playlist. I find it so positive, joyful and uplifting – it always picks me up and makes me feel good. It has all of the elements I LOVE. Soulful, a little bit gospel, you can dance to it, actually you can’t not dance to it (sorry – I can’t not use double negatives ;)). A pumping beat, I love the keyboards, it has awesome vocals, I love the bassline and I have played it every day recently and I’m not bored.

Halo Keep Reaching

This one is going to be a stayer. It’s not a new song either, it has been around since 1997, but keeps being re-released. Carole Sylvan on vocals. Magic.

Lyrics:

Keep on keep on, keep on keep on, keep on keep on,
Keep on keep on, keep on keep on, keep on keep on,
Keep on keep on, keep on keep on, keep on keep on,
Keep on keep on, keep on keep on, keep on keep on,
It’s about time that we have some
It’s about time that we need some

When the crying stops there’s nothing left to feel
Keep your head up high, and wipe away your tears
Don’t give up the dream make sure your mind is clear
Keep your head up high, the time to rise is here
But before we can reach the prize, stand together
Get the truth before our eyes
We’ll be free when the hatred dies
We can make it, all together if we try
Got to keep reaching up
Got to keep reaching up
Got to keep reaching up
Got to keep reaching up
Have you seen the pain our children see each day
Keep the sunshine in, don’t let the rainbows fade
Stop the madness, let’s bring happiness our way
Keep the sunshine in and chase the blues away
Don’t forget all the times we strived
Stand together, keep reaching for the sky
Love will win over all mankind
We can make it all together if we try
Got to keep reaching up (got to keep on reaching)
Got to keep reaching up (got to keep on reaching)
Got to keep reaching up (you’d better keep on reaching up, reaching up)
Got to keep reaching up
Got to keep reaching up
Got to keep reaching up (reach)
Got to keep reaching up (reaching up for the sky)
Got to keep reaching up (you and love)
But before we can reach the prize, stand together
Get the truth before our eyes
We’ll be free when the hatred dies
We can make it, all together if we try

Reach on up, reach on up, reach on up
I said keep on, keep on, keep on
Every day of your life, keep on reaching up
Do what you got to do, it’s in your heart
You’ve got to make a stand

Got to keep reaching up
Got to keep reaching up
Got to keep reaching up
Got to keep reaching up
Look down reach inside your heart
We’ve got to make we’ve got to make we’ve got to make the start
Yes we do

Keep on going, keep on striving
Keep on reaching up
You can do it, you can do it, you can do it
