Crystal Blue Persuasion – a song to remember…

Look over yonder
What do you see?
The sun is a’rising
Most definitely
A new day is coming
Ooh ooh
People are changing
Ain’t it beautiful
Crystal blue persuasion

Above are a few lyrics from the song titled “Crystal Blue Persuasion” which was sung by Tommy James & the Shondells. For, the song was released in 1969 and composed by Eddie Gray, Tommy James, and Mike Vale.

 

Indeed, I like the song with its effervescent sound. When the song was finally released, the band only used 4 instruments – a bongo, a tambourine, a flamenco guitar, and a very light-sounding bass, all other instruments were removed. Which according to Tommy James, allowed the song to have that light airy sound.

 

In addition, James said that “Crystal Blue” is a reference to the Book of Revelation, out of the Bible. Moreover, he said “The imagery was right out of Chapter 19 of the Book of Revelation, about the lake of crystal, and just what John sees. The imagery was just right there. ‘Crystal blue persuasion,’ although those words aren’t used together, it was what the image meant to me.”

Crystal Blue Persuasion Meaning

Some believe Crystal Blue Persuasion is referring to the color of lightning blue/crystal blue. Lightning blue is the most powerful color for our auras and our wellbeing. By meditating with lightning blue, we can open our chakras and open our minds.

Gazing upon this painting, I named it “Crystal Blue Persuasion” since it seems to have that same affect – effervescent and allowing us to open our minds to a better wellbeing.

Crystal Blue Persuasion Lyrics

Look over yonder
What do you see?
The sun is a’rising
Most definitely

A new day is coming
Ooh ooh
People are changing
Ain’t it beautiful
Crystal blue persuasion

Better get ready
To see the light
Love, love is the answer
Oooh ooh
And that’s all right

So don’t you give up now
So easy to find
Just look to your soul
And open your mind

Crystal blue persuasion
Mmm, mmm

It’s a new vibration
Crystal blue persuasion
Crystal, blue persuasion

Maybe tomorrow
When he looks down
On every green field
And every town
All of his children
And every nation
They’ll be peace and good brotherhood

Crystal blue persuasion
Yeah
Crystal blue persuasion
Aha
Crystal blue persuasion
Aha
Crystal blue persuasion
Aha
Ohhhh
Crystal blue persuasion
Aha

Dare to Feel,

Red
