#MusicReviewTuesday: ‘Dance For You’ by Ty Bello

 

Ty Bello 'The Morning Songbook ' 'Dance For You'

From the stables of Ty Bello’s second album, The Morning Songbook, I bring you ‘Dance For You’!

Sung in A Major, this disco flavoured piece of awesomeness is my song of the moment! Savour the lyrics, the simplicity of the melody, and most importantly, the drum beat that makes you nod in a certain way as you listen!

The piano is king in this song with its keys hitting some deliciously low notes, giving the bass line effect and later delivering a sweet nursery rhyme flavour with mid range notes. Ty vocalises the Jackson 5 flavour effortlessly as she sings ‘I will dance’ a second time. And when she sings the line ‘No matter what this life is playing’ in her raspy voice, she sounds like the uber cool lead singer of Coldplay! I also catch Mosa’s rich unmistakeable voice in the background, along with Ty’s, adding more finesse to the track. The latter part of the intro chiming ‘re mi do’, reminds me of Aaliyah’s ‘Let Me Know’ at the instrumentation that responds to the line ‘At your best, you are love’.

This piece is a personal confession of dancing for God when you feel like crying because you feel as though life were cutting you in the throat. Make the decision to praise and dance for God right in the eye of the storm because you are actually announcing your victory that way! Listen to this declaration and sing along with this hot mother of twins!
