The nature of things...




Narada Michael Walden, real name Michael Walden, is an American singer-songwriter whose nickname 'Narada' comes to him from the Hindu spiritual leader Sri Chinmoy.


Artist who began to stand out in the mid-1970s by joining the group 'Mahavishnu Orchestra', a group in which he participated from 1974 to 1976.


The personal career begins shortly after with the release of a first album "Garden of love light" also in 1976. A first opus which will not go unnoticed thanks in particular to the Single "Delightful" which is released a year later in 1977.


Also in 1977, his new album "I cry, I smile" was released, an album which would go much more unnoticed than its predecessor...


He will have to wait two years and the year 1979 to finally reap the fruits of his efforts with the release of two albums the same year, "Awakening" and "The dance of life". The first will produce the big Single "I don't want nobody else (To dance with you)" and the second will produce the huge "I shoulda loved ya".


New album "Victory" in 1980, an album which could not match the enormous success met by "The dance of life", an album from which the high-calibre Singles "The real thang" were nevertheless extracted the same year as well as "I want you” which will be released a year later in 1981.


The year 1982 will see the release of "Confidence", an album which will be his last major success in this category because the albums "Looking at you, looking at me" and "The nature of things" which will be released respectively in 1983 and 1985 will only experience a limited level of success.


On the Singles side, he will have a last big success in 1988 with the title "Divine emotions", a title taken from the album "Divine emotion" which will also be released the same year.


The adventure will continue thereafter but without the relief nor the honors which he will have known at the beginning of decade 80…

Clips :


1976...a very first title which shows from the outset that this young man has potential, it is clear. A rather good omen for the rest of the events...



1977...from the second title it is already the first success, what more could you ask for. Admittedly, we're not talking about a mega hit, but still...



1977... not all the titles of 1977 will find favor with the public, but the main thing is that the machine is well and truly launched...



1979...new success two years later and this time in Dance mode. He is as good in the Intimist as in the Dance which can only reassure on the smooth running of the rest of his career...



1979...the proof with this new title ! Let's go for the big take-off and the sensational arrival in the big leagues. We felt that it was going to happen quickly...



1979...the Walden rocket will reach the stars with THIS title. In just 2 years he will have achieved the feat of inscribing his name in the musical Pantheon of this end of the 20th century. HU-GE !



1979...a 1979 which will undoubtedly remain as its best vintage. All the titles are at least inspired or even very inspired...



1979... he will have excelled in all tempos during this single year, which underlines all the more the exceptional quality of this year 1979...



1980... the transition to the next decade will be done in the best conditions even if the level of success achieved during this year will be slightly lower...



1980... he will succeed in proving in an obvious way that the enormous success achieved during the year 1979 was due to everything except chance...



1981...the level of productivity will drop somewhat at the start of the 1980s, but nothing to worry about at this stage because the quality is still essential...



1982...despite a sound and a style that fit perfectly with the times, the year 1982 will prove to be somewhat disappointing on the Charts side. Strange...



1982... after seeing his potential, we know he can bounce back at any time. It remains to be seen whether he will be able to do so or not...



1982...he does whatever it takes to stay in the game for as long as possible. The opposite would have been surprising concerning him...



1983... it is with this revisited version of the title of the Four Tops dating from 1967 that he will succeed in raising his head as it should. The essential is therefore preserved...



1983...this title will not be classified but is far from deserving, that's clear. The Intimist has always been an area that inspires him to the highest degree at first sight...



1985...business resumes with this title and allows the singer to show that he is still there. And in a very nice way too !



1985...a BIG year 1985 which saw him come back to the front of the leading pack in a certain way. Like what in music nothing is ever finished...



1985...a third title which will not be released as a Single but which deserved to be. What is certain in any case is that the adventure is far from over...



1988 ... we will lose sight of him for almost 3 years but here he is again and in a certain form. Enough in any case to offer him a new major success !



1988...that was the good news. For the bad, it is that the major success obtained previously will indeed be the last unfortunately...



1988... the last Singles hit. A little over 10 years after his debut, the circle seems to be closed at least in terms of success in the Charts...



1995 ... we could have feared a pure and simple disappearance but here he is back again. A desire to believe in it to the end which undoubtedly commands respect...



1995...a fine comeback which proves once again that this singer really excels in the 'emotional' register...



2013...well, we're going to completely lose him for almost 18 years, which is not nothing. But he returns once again to the delight of the basic fans...



2013... he made the effort to try to adapt to the latest musical developments of the moment but that will not be enough to bring him back in the race unfortunately...



2014...in any case, he will have at least tried. And as long as he takes pleasure in doing what he does there is no reason for him to throw in the towel definitively...



2015...even if his return will go unnoticed to say the least, what he continues to offer is far from deserving. Anyway, we'll be happy with that...



2015...you still have to remember that he started his career nearly 40 years ago ! It's still a great performance to be here again today...



2015...especially since most of those who started at the same time as him have already disappeared body and soul a long time ago...



2022...and another decade to add to a counter that already has a hell of a lot ! We therefore imagine that this title will surely not be the last...
