Song Lyric Sunday — No Lyrics

My choice of song for Helen Vahdati’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt is, well, unusual. It may also set me up for a bit of ridicule from some of my fellow bloggers. Why? Well, first of all, the song I chose for Helen’s theme, which is “glass,” has no lyrics. WHAT? Second, the song is from Yanni. Yes, Yanni, the New Age music artist.

I was really into New Age music, sometimes referred to as “jazz fusion” or “smooth jazz,” from the mid 80s to maybe the early 2000s. And I will freely admit that Yanni was one of my favorite New Age artists.

Anyway, the song I selected is “Looking Glass.” It’s from Yanni’s second studio album, Keys to Imagination, which was released in 1986. Yanni’s music, which is predominantly instrumental, is a blend of jazz, classical, soft rock, and world music.

Since there are no lyrics to include in this post, I figure I’ll just go ahead and post the song “Looking Glass.” If you listen, close your eyes and let yourself be transported. You might even be surprised by how much you enjoy it.

    Yanni never disappoints. Very calming to me.

    Didn’t appreciate Yanni back in the day. I enjoyed this, so I guess my tastes have changed. (Must be because New Age-y music helps me sleep at night.) He’s not jazz fusion, though. Spyro Gyra, Chick Corea, Miles Davis: those guys are jazz fusion!

    Thanks for shaking up the SLS mix!

      True, his music isn’t “jazz” fusion, but it is a fusion of classical, soft rock, jazz, and world music. I first heard Yanni’s music on a radio station that billed itself as a “smooth jazz” station.

    I really enjoyed this one as well. I think the title speaks for itself in the music. Thanks so much for sharing!
