"Early In The Morning" is the second single by soft-voiced pop singer Larry Santos, taken from his self-titled album that his record company Casablanca Records forgot to release on 7" vinyl. This Christian-flavored acoustic pop ballad, produced by the late Detroit soul producer Don Davis, is an early example of Christian-pop music, which is way before Sandi Patti, Amy Grant, Kathy Troccoli, Sheila Walsh, Michael W. Smith and other Christian artists..
In this Christian-flavored pop ballad, "Early In The Morning",
the biblical words "You", "Your" and "One" refer to = holy newborn baby child;
the biblical words, "I", "My" and "Me" refer to = God, the Lord or Jesus like in the inspirational lyrics:
"I long to touch You like the rising sun"
"I want to feel Your warmness by My side"
"So come and lay by Me and stay by Me
Don't be afraid to open up Your love and let Me in
I've needed One like You to love Me too"
which they mean God or Jesus healing the newborn child born blind or born with leprosy and touching him with love and inspiration.
It missed both the Top 40 and the Billboard Hot 100 pop music charts, Easy Listening Music Charts and Adult Contemporary Music Charts when it was destroyed by an erotic disco tune, "Love To Love You Baby" by the late queen of disco Donna Summer that was branded "graphic" by some music critics and was even banned by some radio stations for its explicit content. It's too bad that nobody played his wholesome pop song "Early In The Morning" on pop radio stations nor pop music video stations like MTV Music Television or VH-1 Video Hits One.
