レオン・ウェアLeon Ware と Arthur "T-Boy" Ross(ダイアナロスの弟)の作品で
ジャクソン・ファイブのために作られました

私は♪A Love Of Your Ownと同じ1978~1979年頃に

ソングライターのメリッサですが、このアルバムはカバーが多いのが特徴
メリッサはこのアルバムでジャクソン・ファイブがカバーした
スライのStandをもカバーしています
以上の3曲にとても魅力を感じたことから、ブラックミュージックの世界へ入りました

シェリックSherrick - Baby,I'm For Real 歌詞

シェリックSherrick - Baby,I'm For Real

1987年Michael Storkesプロデュース
Sherrickのたった一枚のアルバム「Sherrick」からピックアップ

手持ちはLPで当時、何度も何度も聴きました♪
都会的で洗練されていて、そしてディープでソウルフル
力強くとてもつやのある歌声を持つ彼の実力が発揮された名盤
1999年に亡くなっています

ブログ企画「ブックオフで出会った(出会うかもしれない)
Late80's&Early90's Black Singer(Group)」の時代にはあったシンガーですが
企画でのエントリーではありません

というのは、ブックオフでは出会わないだろうと想います
LPはもちろん紙ジャケのCDもレアだそうで
もし幸運にも出会ったら、高くてもゲットしましょう♪

歌詞 
*********

If I were you woman
And you were my man
You'd have no other woman
You'd be weak as a lamb
If you had the strenght
To walk out that door
My love would over rule my sense
And I'd call you back for more

If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
And you were my man

Yeah
She tears you down Darling
Says you're nothing at all
But I'll pick you up Darling
When she lets you fall
You're like a diamond
And she treats you like glass
Yet you make it hard to love you
But Babe don't ask

If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
Here's what I'd do
I'd never no, no, no stop loving you

Yeah
Life is so crazy
And love is unkind
Because she came first
Will she hang on your mind
You're a part of me
And you don't even know it
I'm what you need
But I'm too afraid to show it

If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
Here's what I'd do
I'd never, no, no, no stop loving you

If I were your woman
Here's what I'd do
I'd never, never, never stop loving you
If I were your woman
You're sweet lovin' woman

If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman

1951年4月20日生 (New York, NY )
2005年7月 1日没(Edison, New Jersey)

2005年7月1日、私は開腹手術をしました
2週間後、無事退院してから、大好きなルーサーが亡くなったのを知り
忘れられない日になりました

▼Luther Vandross - Dance With My Father Again


♪Luther Vandross - Dance With My Father Again
  ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・
Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around ‘til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved
If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
How I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again
When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way, I would run from her to him
He’d make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do just what my mama said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
‘Cause I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again
Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
And I’d hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me
I know I’m praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know you don’t do it usually
But dear Lord she’s dying
To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream

お楽しみ企画第5弾のピックアップは
▼Zapp & Roger - Slow And Easy
Slow And Easy - Zapp & Roger
ライブでファンクなスローは休憩タイムの曲じゃなくて
時にはファンクナンバーよりずっと、観客の感情を煽るってくるんです
そんなファンクなスローらしい曲じゃないかなと想って選びました
ライブで「化ける」に違いないからです♪

そして、もう一つの選曲理由がゴスペル
女性ボーカルはファミリーのゴスペルシンガーShirley Murdock
男性の方は下のエントリーで紹介したRonnie"Diamond" Hoard牧師
一時期オハイオ・プレイヤーズのリードをしていた人です

ザップとオハイオ・プレイヤーズの親交

そして、ゴスペル
(♪Midnight Hour にはThe Mighty Clouds of Joyが参加)

黒人コミュニティーで愛され、そして私の魂をゆさぶるファンクは
ゴスペル抜きでは語れないということをあらためて知った曲でもあります

ファンクの大御所グループ
アイズレー・ブラザーズも前身はゴスペルグループですね♪

▼Tracy Chapman - Fast Car (acoustic)


メッセージは強いけれど、ホッとする聴き心地が好きです
手持ちはLP盤

歌詞

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
We won't have to drive too far
Just 'cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

You see my old man's got a problem
He live with the bottle that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working
I say his body's too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody's got to take care of him
So I quit school and that's what I did

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way

I remember we were driving driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs

You got a fast car
And I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way

歌詞:Brenda Russell song

Let me hold you tight
If only for one night
Let me keep you near
To ease away your fear
It would be so nice
If only for one night

I won't tell a soul
No one has to know
If you want to be totally discreet
I'll be at your side
If only for one night

Your eyes say things I never hear from you
And my knees are shaking too
But I'm willing, willing to go thru
I must be crazy
Standing in this place
But I'm feeling no disgrace

For asking...

Let me hold you tight
If only for one night
Let me keep you near
To ease away your fear
It would be so nice
If only for one night

I tell you what I need is
One night, one night oh (and oh, oh)

What I need is
One night, one night
Of your love, of you love, of your loving ooh

I'm asking...

Let me take you home
To keep you safe and warm
Till the early dawn
Warms up to the sun
It would be so nice if only for one night

If only for one night
If only for one night
If only for one night, night, night, yeah one night
If only for one.........night

▼Brook Benton - A House Is Not A Home (1964)



歌詞

A chair is still a chair, even when there's no one sittin' there
But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home
When there's no one there to hold you tight
And no one there you can kiss goodnight

Whoa...oh...oh...oh...oh...oh...oh...
Girl

A room is a still a room, even when there's nothin' there but gloom
But a room is not a house and a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart

Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game
When it ends, it ends in tears

Pretty little darling, have a heart, don't let one mistake keep us apart
I'm not meant to live alone, turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key
Oh, please be there, sayin' that you're still in love with me, yeah...

I'm not meant to live alone, turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key
Oh, please be there, still in love
I said still in love
Still in love with you...yeah...

Are you gonna be in love with me
I want you and need to be, yeah
Still in love with me
Say you're gonna be in love with me
It's drivin' me crazy to think that my baby
Couldn't be still in love with me

Are you gonna be, say you're gonna be
Are you gonna be, say you're gonna be
Are you gonna be, say you're gonna be
Well, well, well, well
Still in love, so in love, still in love with me
Are you gonna be
Say that you're gonna be
