Radio XLV, side B, track 3: “Get On Your Feet” by Gloria Estefan

Gloria Estefan - Get On Your FeetOh, Gloria Estefan, how awesome is this?  We JUST heard the promo for this song not too long ago, and now here we are, with the ACTUAL song!  As a music recorder, it was always a pretty big deal when I was able to capture a song that I’d heard promos for already.  I mean, logically, it shouldn’t have been that big a deal, since if they were promo-ing it, it was likely that meant that we were going to be hearing it a lot on the radio.  Whatever, Gloria Estefan, don’t judge me, it was a thing.  And there were instances where I never did get a chance to record the songs featured on the promos.  Like that song by Oh Well.  Or even White Lion’s “Radar Love”, which was on the same promo as yours.  I’m just trying to explain that sometimes I wasn’t always successful at recording music off the radio.

But luckily that wasn’t the case with this song.  And NOT only that, but this was a “pure” song!!!  That was always very exciting for me.  And this wasn’t even the first “pure” song I’d recorded of yours.  I guess that really makes me a Gloria EsteFAN. . .

No?  All right, worth a shot.

Anyway, Gloria Estefan, while I appreciate your suggestion of getting on my feet to make it happen, I assure you that I’ve always done my best work sitting down, whether it’s reading or recording your music off the radio or writing this blog.  I’m sure I’ll regret someday that my theme song is more “Stay On Your Ass” than “Get On Your Feet”, but it’s really hard to believe that’s true when it’s so fun sitting here listening to great songs like this one.

“Get On Your Feet”

<awesome Gloria Estefan jam>

You say I know
It’s a waste of time
There’s no use tryin’

So scared that life’s
Gonna pass you by
Ya spirit dyin’

Not long ago
I could feel your strength
And your devotion

What was so clear
Is now overcast
With mixed emotions

Deep in your heart is the answer

Find it, I know it’ll pull you through

Get on your feet

Get up
And make it happen

Get on your feet

Stand up and take some action

I think it’s true
That we’ve all been through
Some nasty weather

Let’s understand
That we’re here to haaandle things together

Ya gotta keep looking onto tomorrow

There’s so much in life that’s meant for you

Get on your feet

Get up
And make it happen

Get on your feet

Stand up and take some action

Get on your feet

Don’t stop before it’s over

Get on your feet

The weight is off your shoulder

<awesome Gloria Estefan jam>

(Woah oh we oh)

(Woah oh oh)
Get up and make it happen (oh ee oh)

(Woah oh we oh)

(Woah oh oh)
Stand up, stand up
Stand up and take some action (oh ee oh)

Gotta get on your feet, yeah, yeah (woah oh we oh)

(Woah oh oh)
Don’t stop before it’s over (oh ee oh)

Get on your feet (woah oh we oh)

(Woah oh oh)
The weight is off your shoulder (oh ee oh)

Get on your feet (woah oh we oh)
Get up, get up (woah oh oh)
Get up and make it happen (oh ee oh)

Get on your feet (woah oh we oh)

Stand up
(Woah oh oh)
Stand up and take some action (oh ee oh)

Get on your feet (woah oh we oh)
Get up
Stand up (woah oh oh)
Don’t stop before it’s over (oh ee oh)
