Orleans

Orleans is an American pop-rock band best known for its hits "Dance with Me" (1975), "Still the One", from the album Waking and Dreaming (1976) and "Love Takes Time" (1979). The group's name evolved from the music it was playing at the time of their formation, which was inspired by Louisiana artists such as Allen Toussaint and the Neville Brothers. Orleans was formed in Woodstock, New York in January 1972 by vocalist/guitarist/songwriter John Hall, vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Larry Hoppen and drummer/percussionist Wells Kelly. In October of that year, the group expanded to include Larry's younger brother, Lance, on bass. Drummer Jerry Marotta joined in 1976, completing the quintet. more »

When the world was in trouble
And it looked like there was hell to pay
Fire, fire everywhere
And the news got worse each day
People really wondered
Just how long they could hold out
God looked down from heaven above
And he began to shout

Let there be music
Let it shine like the sun
Let there be music
Everybody's got to have some fun

It's so hard to keep on smiling
When people try to make you frown
But we're all in this together
So why bring one another down
You know we can't expect our problems
To grow wings and fly away
So fight the fight just as hard as you can
And when it's time for you to play

Let there be music
Let it shine like the sun
Let there be music
Everybody's got to have some fun
