Beautiful Big Blue

"Beautiful Big Blue" was my first foray into a style of music I'm calling "banjo EDM" which has now become one of my favorite styles to work with.

This song fuses clawhammer banjo folk with tropical house and EDM elements for an energizing and cheerful mix you're not likely to find anywhere else.

The message of this song is about shared humanity. It is an embrace of the collective journey we are on as we cruise together on this planet through the "beautiful big blue".

A huge thanks to the award-winning producer Ovi Bistriceanu who produced, mixed, and mastered the track (he even rented a banjo and learned to play it in order to add a few extra banjo riffs). 

 

Like It Or Not

Beautiful Big Blue

Sarah Tolle

An upbeat, electronic dance song with some folk elements. This song is for all of us. It's a reminder that we are all in it together.

Even when we have no clue what we're doing... "there's nothing I'd rather do than ride the Earth with you, through the beautiful big blue!"

"Beautiful Big Blue" Lyrics

I don’t know your name 

But I love you all the same 

And I don’t need a thing 

But a banjo and a little song to sing 

 

I’ve got the sun in the southern sky 

Wind in my hair and the tide rollin' in 

Don’t think that I will ever have another worry on Earth again 

In all my life, la-da-da-da 

Nothing I’d rather do than ride the Earth with you 

In the beautiful big blue, blue 

Me and you-hoo 

Ridin' the Earth on through the beautiful big blue 

Beautiful big blue 

 

Dreaming, roller coaster screaming 

Happy hours that head late into the evening 

Dancing, second chancing 

Making up songs, and loving and not understanding 

 

Under that sun in the southern sky 

Wind in my hair and the tide rollin' in 

Don’t think that I will ever have another worry on Earth again 

In all my life, la-da-da-da 

Nothing I’d rather do than ride the Earth with you 

In the beautiful big blue, blue 

Me and you-hoo 

Ridin' the Earth on through the 

Beau-do-do-do-do-do-hoo-tiful big blue 

 

Living, home-run hitting 

Striking out, moving along, forgiving 

Hoping, never knowing 

Never sure exactly where we’re going 

 

Under that sun in the southern sky 

Wind in my hair and the tide rollin' in 

Don’t think that I will ever have another worry on Earth again 

In all my life, la-da-da-da 

Nothing I’d rather do than ride the Earth with you 

In the beautiful big blue, blue 

Me and you-hoo 

Ridin' the Earth on through the beautiful big blue 

Beautiful big blue
