Review

February, 28th 2017
John Legend is a guy who is the songwriter, a singer, and the music producer. He also likes fire obviously, if he has at least three songs devoted to this essential natural element. The first was a song produced six years ago and called ‘The Fire’. It was featuring ‘The Roots’ band. The second song he did about the fire has been named ‘Can't Start A Fire’ that he did together with Bruce Springsteen. And the third song about the fire, ‘Start A Fire, was written and performed by him for ‘La La Land’ exclusively.
This guy has a magnificent song that has become popular in 2013. It is named “All Of You” and you can listen to it
here.
Maybe it is because of this song he was noticed and asked to write a brand new song for this film? In the contradiction to the previous couple of songs of the gloomy mood, it is very uplifting and has the fast pace. What is also remarkable about this song – are the guitar riffs that sounds like from the middle of 197ies, where disco music was very popular.
This piece is perfect for the underlining of the uplifted mood of the heroes when they only care about fine dancing together. This song contains three verses, several bridges, and choruses. The basic meaning of it is that a singer asks everyone to become reckless tonight. It feels so good when they are dancing that he is glad to repeat this. He says that if they were keeping on dancing, they would take their spirits to the new heights. They would also feel the heat of passion and lighted up the night. He is moving his body but he actually doesn't know if this is wrong or right, he also doesn't know if there is a right beat for this dancing and he doesn't know if anyone is following him or he is just alone at this dance floor. All he knows is he feels extremely good about dancing and he feels invigorated when dances.
John Legend performs in the several genres. These are R&B, soul, pop, and neo-soul directions. He is also associated to Kanye West, 'The Roots', and Jamie Foxx brands. In addition to the fact that he is a singer, he's also a philanthropist, a producer and has extensive discography which is available on the Wikipedia on
this page. He has several albums, not only studio ones, but also recorded from his life performances, along with almost forty singles. Every his album has become Gold, Silver, Platinum, except of his latest album named 'Darkness and Light', which was released in 2016 as it obviously didn't have a chance yet to gain all these titles as was released late.
His first album named 'Get Lifted' has been rated as several numbers Platinum gold according to six different organizations that make those ratings. His most well known song named ‘All Of Me’ has been rated number one across the world and also was as much as eight times Platinum according to RIAA, 7 x Platinum according to ARIA and at least two times Platinum according to other rating bodies. This was his huge spring for the career that has been already going as much as nine years before he released this fantastically successful single. Reference: More about John Legend: Wikipedia page

Start A Fire Song Lyrics


[Verse 1]
I don’t know why I keep moving my body
I don’t know if this is wrong or if it’s right
I don’t know if there’s a beat, or something’s taking over me
And I just know I’ll feel so good tonight
[Verse 2]
I don’t know what your name is but I like it
I’ve been thinking ‘bout some things I wanna try
I don’t know what you came to do, but I wanna do it with you
And I just know I’ll feel so good tonight
[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, if we keep on dancing
Take our rhythm to new heights
Feel the heat of passion, baby
Light up the night
[Chorus]
We could start a fire
Come on, let it burn baby
We could start a fire
Let the tables turn baby
We could start a fire
[Bridge]
I just know I feel so good
Don’t you know I feel so good
I just know I feel so good
Tonight
[Verse 3]
I don’t care if this tuns into a riot
Lets get reckless, tear this place down to the floor
Turn the music way up loud
Can’t nobody stop us now
I just know I feel so good tonight
I just know I feel so good tonight
[Chorus]
We could start a fire
Come on, let it burn baby
We could start a fire
Let the tables turn baby
We could start a fire
[Outro]
I just know I feel so good
Don’t you know I feel so good
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
Tonight
