“Music is the Best Medicine” (……. a.k.a., “The Soundtrack of my Life”) Track #3: “Straight Cold Player” -Lenny Kravitz

My track number "3" , in my so-called "Soundtrack of my Life", is from the Lenny Kravitz album/CD simply titled "5" ……

…Lenny's album/CD, "5", is my favorite of all Lenny's CDs.

Not over analyzing it, but I think I loved Lenny's "5" because he explores a little Soul, R&B, and funk, with heavy backbeats, R&B Horns, mixed in with his traditional Rock tracks.

However, as I understand it, his record company was not overly happy with his straying away from pure Rock and Roll (if there is such a thing as pure Rock and Roll)…….

So, Lenny's record company had him add his remake of "American Woman", a cover version of the original song by the Canadian Band "The Guess Who" , to the Lenny Kravitz "5" CD.

As it turned out, the record company knew what they were doing, as Lenny Kravitz's "5" album exploded, going on to sell 2,000,000 US, and 7,000,000 worldwide….

…thus establishing Lenny's place as one of the elite modern day Rockers.

Anyhoo, I'm by no means a "Player", but jokingly call myself all over my website, an "Old School Playa', from the Himalaya", so to me, that's close enough, plus, I love the song, SO THERE!!!!

Lenny is 54 years young in 2018, so, he's technically an "Old School Player", like me. Neither one of us are slowing down, so I want to celebrate our new breed of "Old School Player's" energy with this cover.

Besides, us "Old School Players" have to stick together 🙂      …..all that being said, LET'S ROCK!!!!.
