The Whistle Song
Here is a house anthem that I had recently re-visited and gave it a listen. An instrumental masterpiece for the dance floor that asked the dancer to just let go. Every instrument you heard had so much texture and melody. It was conceived by "Godfather of House" Frankie Knuckles in 1991 as the first single from his debut album Beyond The Mix as producer of original material which now it stands as a house classic that delivered many great dance floor anthems as well. I remember vividly the overall feeling on the dance floor was "life goes on: in the midst of so much death whenever it was played". It was a somber, meditative and beautiful homage of those who passed since it was a hard time to go out and dance when so many loved ones were dying or gone during that period. It's such a time capsule to hear it now yet it's still beautiful to listen. Enjoy and celebrate life!
