Michael Franti's music has been a longtime staple for alternative/progressive radio stations. His socially conscious rap/hip-hop tends NOT to be played alongside Drake, Flo Rida, Soulja Boy-the flavor of the month rapper. He's more known for his politics than his music. Imagine my surprise when I heard "Say Hey (I Love You)" being introduced by Ryan Seacrest on America's Top 40. It's a joyous,reggae/rap love song. It has a real beat to it--and it's upbeat. It's nice to see Franti finally getting the mainstream appeal he deserves. He's done an album about capital punishment,a documentary about bringing music to Israel and Iraq, he's performed with the likes of Iggy Pop-- and now he's made it!

The FM radio I have sitting on my desk picks up the Billboard Top 40 the best, and I keep listening to this song that keeps saying "My Momma kept saying don't lose you..and I Love you..." Since the word Love is repeated about a million times, and the song is repeated about a million times, so the word is repeated about a zillion times, the song is undeniably about Love. It is sang to a rhythm that resonates with some sort of the fundamental frequency of the mind, so it is impossible to not Love the song.

And then you wonder, who is Michael Franti?

He is a 43-year old African American man, who was adopted by a "white Finnish American" couple according to Wikipedia. He doesn't wear shoes except Crocs due to airline regulations. He's sang songs as background music to William Burroughs' readings. Deeply, and really, pained by world problems such as hunger and violence, and to cut the Gordian knot of it all Franti uses the only dagger he's got: Love.

Good quality. I like the song. What more can you say? Apparently, you need to say at least eight more
