Marty Balin singing “Today” live at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967. The cameraman thought Grace Slick was singing, but she was just mouthing the words until halfway through. What incredible voices … both of them.

As we enter into a new world of uncertainty, I think about that sense of community we once had and I hope can find that we can find it again.

Stay safe. Stay inside.

Today, I feel like pleasing you
More than before
Today, I know what I want to do
But I don’t know what for
To be living for you
Is all I want to do
To be loving you
It’ll all be there
When my dreams come true

Today, you’ll make me say
That I somehow have changed
Today, you’ll look into my eyes
I’m just not the same
To be any more than all I am
Would be a lie
I’m so full of love
I could burst apart
And start to cry

Today, everything you want
I swear it all will come true
Today, I realize how much
I’m in love with you
With you standing here
I could tell the world
What it means to love
To go on from here
I can’t use words
They don’t say enough

Please, please listen to me
It’s taken so long to come true
It’s all for you, all for you

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but Marty Balin once said he wrote this song for Tony Bennett, who was recording in the same facility, but a different studio, when the Airplane was recording Surrealistic Pillow.
