My Sunday Song – “One Love” by W.E.T.

For My Sunday Song #286 is the song “One Love” by the Jeff Scott Soto band called W.E.T. What is W.E.T.? Well, it is comprised of Robert Sall of the band Work of Art, Erik Martensson of the band Eclispse and Jeff Scott Soto from the band Talisman. Take the first initial of each band and you have W.E.T. It also has 2 other members Magnus Henriksson and Robban Back. All are on the label Frontiers Records who brought the super group together. The song is off the debut album from 2009 album simply called ‘W.E.T.’. What many were afraid would be a one album deal has turned in to four album and a live album album. A legit band.

The song “One Love” was written by Erik Martensson and Vivien Searcy and is simply about that one true love. Despite all the temptations out on the road, he knows he will never find someone like her and that she is his rock. Here love is what sustains him and she is that miracle sent form heaven. It is really sweet.

The song itself is a power ballad and a pretty great modern version of one. It opens with keyboards from Erik who also handles all rhythm guitar duties. The lead guitar and solo are from Magnus and it fits the song so well. The drums are from Robban and for some reason Mr. Sail is not on the lead for this one. Musically, it is pure melodic rock gold. However, the highlight are those smooth vocals from Jeff. He really delivers and emotional, heartfelt song that matches the lyrics. You can hear from these high notes the man has some pipes and can sing about anything. If this was released in the 80’s, this ballad would’ve been top of the charts. It is infectious, catchy and simply beautiful. Man, if Jeff would’ve stayed in Journey and they released an album, this is what it would sound like.

Give the song a listen and tell me this isn’t an amazing power ballad. I dare you…you would be wrong!! I hope you do enjoy it as much as I have. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful and Happy Sunday!!!

“One Love”

Never wondered, what will become of us
I’ve been sheltered from every stone that has to come
Reaching for you, feel the urge of love
In my arms you feel the heaven up above

Came out of nowhere, girl you’re my miracle
Yeah we go stronger

One love, one dream, to stand
You’re mine and it’s why this love keeps me alive

On your shoulders, lies the weight of love
All the times I should let you know you were my love
I’m surrounded, by temptations love
Never though I would find someone to catch my fall

Came out of nowhere, girl you’re my miracle
Yeah we go stronger

One love, one dream, to stand
You’re mine and it’s why this love keeps me alive

Woah

One love, one dream, to stand
You’re mine and it’s why this love keeps me alive

Keeps me alive
Alive
Keeps me alive
Keeps me alive

(Solo)

Came out of nowhere, girl you’re my miracle
Yeah we go stronger

One love

One love, one dream, to stand
You’re mine and it’s why this love keeps me alive

Woah

One love, one dream, to stand
You’re mine and it’s why this love keeps me alive

Written by Erik Martensson and Vivien Searcy
