Throwback Friday- “Theme From Mahogany” by Diana Ross

dianaross_themefrommahogany

Ok, so it’s really early Saturday, but I wanted to keep up with this post as a way to pay tribute to some beautiful music we’ve seen in years past.  Often when I have those moments where I’m not sure if I’m traveling forward or back, this song pops into my head (as it did overnight).

Recorded with a full orchestral accompaniment, the “Theme from Mahogany” became one of the most recognizable elements of the film Mahogany. Many critics reviewed the film unfavorably, but generally praised the song. Later released as a single (see 1975 in music), “Theme from Mahogany” became a number-one hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song. Ross performed the song live at the Academy Awards ceremony via satellite from the Netherlands. (source: wikipedia)

As I research this, I realize that I’ve never seen the movie “Mahogany” or at least I don’t think I have.  Time to add that to my netflix list, too.

Hat’s off to Diana Ross whose rendition made “Theme From Mahogany” a classic.

Do you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to?
Do you know…?

Do you get
What you’re hoping for
When you look behind you
There’s no open door
What are you hoping for?
Do you know…?

Once we were standing still in time
Chasing the fantasies
That filled our minds
You knew how i loved you
But my spirit was free
Laughin’ at the questions
That you once asked of me

Do you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to?
Do you know…?

Now looking back at all we’ve planned
We let so many dreams
Just slip through our hands
Why must we wait so long
Before we’ll see
How sad the answers
To those questions can be

Do you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to?
Do you know…?

Do you get
What you’re hoping for
When you look behind you
There’s no open door

What are you hoping for?
Do you know…?
