Known as the cool kids in the class, this funk pop tune was befitting of The Original 7ven‘s (formerly The Time) persona. While it carried a groove many of us loved, it also carried a message of interracial love and equality. Prince’s touch is once again evident in this classic cut and the song’s title is inspired by a lyric from Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now:

Bows and flows of angel hair

And ice cream castles in the air

And feather canyons everywhere,

I’ve looked at clouds that way.”

Now in looking at this video, I gotta give it up to the Original 7ven. Morris was looking like a black Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion and the group may I add were all looking, as Ricky Smiley would say, “open casket sharp” in this video. Here is the wonderful Ice Cream Castles from The Original 7ven formerly The Time.
