It's Nature's Way by Spirit

Recommended Posts

Hey trafficjam, welcome to SF! ;)

I've always loved that song, and never have had a clue about it, and knew little but general stuff about the band. But, allmusic says:

One of Spirit's best-known songs, "Nature's Way" provided the band with their last Top 40 hit single. Inspired by a conversation that writer Randy California had with a San Francisco musician, it takes aim at the fact that Northern California was certainly not immune to ecological nightmares. The song is driven by a positively gorgeous folk-jazz melody; its bittersweet beauty is easily apparent upon first listen.

Here's the link. It has tons of info I didn't know about the band & it's members though. Like how California got his name, among other things. ;)

And yeah, Randy California wrote it.

I think the environmental message is pretty clear, esp since the song is from the 70's. I always liked the way it personalizes to get you to imagine the trees, etc are talking to YOU, yet it's a beautiful song, too.

I've listened to it so much, it's developed an even more personal meaning for me, as if life, or your own intuition is trying to tell you you are on the wrong path.

I adore this album, one I had on vinyl and had search hard to replace in mp3.

It's nature's way of telling you something's wrong

It's nature's way of telling you in a song

It's nature's way of receiving you

It's nature's way of retrieving you

It's nature's way of telling you

Something's wrong

It's nature's way of telling you, summer breeze

It's nature's way of telling you, dying trees

It's nature's way of receiving you

It's nature's way of retrieving you

It's nature's way of telling you

Something's wrong

It's nature's way, it's nature's way

It's nature's way, it's nature's way

It's nature's way of telling you

Something's wrong

It's nature's way of telling you

In a song, oh-h

It's nature's way of receiving you

It's nature's way

It's nature's way of retrieving you

It's nature's way

It's nature's way of telling you

Something's wrong, something's wrong, something's wrong.
