Review about Jefferson Starship songs
United kingdom is buzzing to this for now | Reviewer: iain
    ------ About the song We Built This City performed by Jefferson Starship

Brilliant song. It is featuring in a commercial at the moment for a Phone network. A young girl is riding a bicycle with a basket on the front with a cat in the basket. And the girl is miming to the actual track sung by Starship, along with the cat. And you thought cats couldn't sing?? Viral on Youtube somewhere.

This is an excellant song, end of discussion. | Reviewer: John
    ------ About the song We Built This City performed by Jefferson Starship

We built this city, is one great song. It is just as good as Jefferson Starships Miracles. The talent is in the song. I love this song. I have been playing it for the last 2 days. It is an oldie but goodie. I used to not like songs from the 80s but I love this song especially from a group Jefferson Starship that has years of experience.

"Rusty and Debby Reunited Love Found On F.B After 37 Years!" | Reviewer: Debby Buck
    ------ About the song Runaway performed by Jefferson Starship

This was our song 36 years ago when we met at a Y.C.C.Camp where we first met at the ages of fifteen, and seventeen. It was there we fell in love and said our good-byes at the end of the summer, and wrote a few love letters, then lost touch. Six months ago we found each other on facebook and not a day has gone by without a good morning call at 4:30 a.m. before Rusty goes to work, texting through out the day, and then we have our good night call at 8:30 p.m. before his bedtime, because of his work hours. We also have date night on the phone, which has lasted sometimes five hours! All because we are now 800 miles apart; from Arkansas to Minnesota, and very much in love! Our song is still "Run Away" by Jefferson Starship. Christmas Rusty drove through snow, sleet, floods, and icy roads to see me again for two weeks. We spent meeting each others family and the camp where we met, taking many pictures! It was the best two weeks of my life and went by way to fast! Before he had to leave, he ask me to marry him and I said, "yes"! We have to wait until my son, Canaan graduates and turns eighteen in May so I can leave my house of 26 years to him. Then I will move to Minnesota where my soul mate, and love of my life is! I planned to be married on my grandparents anniversary, june 14, 2014. They were happily married 57 years and passed six weeks apart. I want to be with Rusty for the rest of my life now that we've finally found each other. With God first in our lives, we'll make it this time! Thank you for our song, that means so much to us! Sincerely, Debby Buck from Arkansas

It's about the Vibe! | Reviewer: Louise
    ------ About the song Play On Love performed by Jefferson Starship

Play On Love is an Awesome tune! As a rock & roll musician/singer/songwriter myself, I'm also a Jefferson Airplane/Starship, Grace Slick fan and Love covering it, and I particularly relate to this one - so can a relatively few others as indicated by "I've heard people say it a thousand times in a thousand different ways" - out of Millions, that's Sadly not enough! But for those who understand that "that's the only way to play", it's wonderful! one of those "thousand different ways" to say it is with a term I refer to as the "Love Vibe", a condition where musicians realize that "Makin' Music's Makin' Love" and that "It's ALL about the Music", where they let the Love for what they do flow through themselves and their instruments, i.e. their Music, to be shared Intimately and Interactively with the rest of the band where its amplified through both telepathic and psychoacoustic regenerative feedback until it's intensity becomes so great that it's received by the audience to produce a condition known as the "Love-In Effect". This condition was sought in the '60s at "Love-In" concerts with varying levels of success and was recognized for it's amazing potential to positively change negative things, even going so far as being believed to be potentially able to stop the Vietnam War. Music has long been well know for it's powerful influence and the Love Vibe is where that power comes from. Thus when Love forms the Realized Basis for making Music, it can then be said to "Play On Love" - truly "...the only way to play"!

Who really understands what the video for Sara means (the b+w parts when he's a kid) | Reviewer: Jeff
    ------ About the song Sara performed by Jefferson Starship

I get what the Sara lyrics are referring to (mostly)...but the video with the black and white parts has me dumbfounded. It's driving me to distraction. I know the song was named after the wife (at the time) of Starship's vocalist Mickey Thomas, who sang lead on the track...but what does the farm/tornado/dustbowl setting for "the family" (in black and white) in the video have to do with the song "Sara?"

    ------ About the song We Built This City performed by Jefferson Starship

Best song, worst song, whatever! How each person feels about a song depends on the memories evoked, the emotions associated with it, and their personal music preferences. This song makes me happy, brings back the feelings and joy of raising my young children in the 80's and the fun of growing up in the 60's & 70's during the height of rock & roll.

a tribute to the 70's and 80's | Reviewer: Remember
    ------ About the song We Built This City performed by Jefferson Starship

The song is a tribute to the 70's and 80's and the references to Guglielmo Marconi who discovered (along with Tesla and others)RADiation Induced Oscillation (RAD-I-O) and the rapid changes in the ownership of American technology at the time are priceless. The idea of nameless and faceless engineers who made the world what it was to become is the topic.

re: Marconi | Reviewer: Chris in LV
    ------ About the song We Built This City performed by Jefferson Starship

To the poster who said Marconi is a "throwback to the basics and roots of popular American music", you are grossly incorrect. The reference is to Guglielmo Marconi, inventor of the radio.

    ------ About the song Sara performed by Jefferson Starship

My best friend growing up died a few years ago under very unfortunate circumstances. This song reminds me of her even though the friendship was purely platonic. When we were teenagers we would spend the night at each others houses. She always left music on to sleep to and this song was on one of her "mix tapes". I remember laying awake at night and thinking that this was the saddest song. Sadly, now that song has an even sadder meaning. "Sara, storms are brewing in your eyes...No time is a good time for goodbye."

Important Song to My friend | Reviewer: Conan
    ------ About the song Mau Mau (Amerikon) performed by Jefferson Starship

Wow! These lyrics are as angry and powerful as when I first heard them 30+ years ago!

I am trying to write a memoir for my friend who introduced me to "Blows Against the Empire". I remember his description of listening to this record with his mother. She was slightly aghast at the sentiment, but to her credit, she was trying to understand her son's music at a time when many parents were dismissive of "our music".
