Per request, for this week:
In 1999, Santana went off in a new direction, aiming at a wider audience, aiming for more pop, and less jazz. They released Supernatural, which was mostly collaboration works with other artists. The album was a massive success, with six major singles smashing the charts. Almost every track "featured" somebody famous. The first single released was Smooth, featuring Rob Thomas, from Matchbox Twenty.
Smooth, by the way, is one of two Santana song charts put out by Harmonix. Great, great chart. If you don't have it, buy it! The other Harmonix song is Black Magic Woman. If you don't have that, SKIP IT! That one is a travesty - they took the most iconic Santana song, chopped it off at the half-way point, released just that, and said "let it be enough." It isn't. That butchery still pisses me off.
Put Your Lights On was another hit single, written by Everlast, a dark tune, composed after he had a heart attack, with lyrics like:
Hey now all you children
Leave your lights on
You better leave your lights on
Because there's a monster
Living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
Judging from this week, and last, I seem to be stuck on monsters. Oh well.
The drum chart is by AJFOne23.
