Solomon Burke (R.I.P.) - None Of Us Are Free / Everybody Needs Somebody To Love / Try a little Tenderness / Cry to me / Flesh and Blood


Σε πλήρη δραστηριότητα ήταν ο Solomon Burke ο επονομαζόμενος "King of Rock 'N' Soul",  που έφυγε από κοντά μας πριν λίγες ώρες. Άλλη μια μεγάλη φωνή σίγησε για πάντα. Όπως μας ενημερώνει σχετική είδηση ο Solomon Burke πέθανε στη διάρκεια πτήσεως προς το Άμστερνταμ (νεότερες πληροφορίες αναφέρουν πως άφησε την τελευταία του πνοή μετά την άφιξή του στο αεροδρόμιο). Εκεί ήταν προγραμματισμένη εμφάνισή του στις 12 Οκτωβρίου. Πιθανότερη αιτία είναι καρδιακή προσβολή (στην επίσημη σελίδα του αναφέρεται ότι ο θάνατος οφείλεται σε φυσικά αίτια) Αυτές τις ημέρες θα κυκλοφορούσε και το τελευταίο του άλμπουμ Hold on Tight (σε συνεργασία με τους De Dijk μαζί με τους οποίους ήταν προγραμματισμένο να εμφανισθεί στο Άμστερνταμ). Άλλο ένα άλμπουμ (Nothing's Impossible) είχε κυκλοφορήσει  τον Απρίλιο.
Ο  βραβευμένος με Grammy, Solomon Burke  είχε γεννηθεί στο Μπρούκλιν στις 21 Μαρτίου του 1940.
Αναλυτική βιογραφία του υπάρχει στην επίσημη σελίδα του.


None Of Us Are Free


Well you better listen my sister's and brothers,
'cause if you do you can hear
there are voices still calling across the years.
And they're all crying across the ocean,
and they're cryin across the land,
and they will till we all come to understand.

None of us are free.
None of us are free.
None of us are free, one of us are chained.
None of us are free.

And there are people still in darkness,
and they just can't see the light.
If you don't say it's wrong then that says it right.
We got try to feel for each other, let our brother's know that we care.
Got to get the message, send it out loud and clear.

(Chorus)

It's a simple truth we all need, just to hear and to see.
None of us are free, one of us is chained.
None of us are free.
now I swear your salvation isn't too hard too find,
None of us can find it on our own.
We've got to join together in sprit, heart and mind.
So that every soul who's suffering will know they're not alone.

(Chorus)

If you just look around you,
your gonna see what I say.
Cause the world is getting smaller each passing day.
Now it's time to start making changes,
and it's time for us all to realize,
that the truth is shining real bright right before our eyes.

(Chorus and Fade)

Everybody Needs Somebody To Love



Everybody needs somebody
Everybody Needs Somebody To Love (someone to love)
Sweetheart to miss (sweetheart to miss)
Sugar to kiss (sugar to kiss)
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you you you in the morning
I need you you you when my soul's on fire

Sometimes I feel
I feel a little sad inside
When my baby mistreats me
I never never never have a place to hide
I need you

Sometimes I feel
I feel a little sad inside
When my baby mistreats me
I never never never have a place to hide
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you

You know people when you do find that somebody
Hold that woman, hold that man
Love him, hold him, squeeze her, please her, hold her
Squeeze and please that person, give 'em all your love
Signify your feelings with every gentle caress
Because it's so important to have that special somebody
To hold, kiss, miss, squeeze and please

Everybody needs somebody
Everybody needs somebody to love
Someone to love
Sweetheart to miss
Sugar to kiss
I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you you you...


Try a little Tenderness 


She may be weary
Women do get weary
Wearing the same shabby dress
And when she's weary

Try a little tenderness
You know she's waiting
Just anticipating things she may never possess
While she's without them,

Try a little tenderness
It's not just sentimental
She has her grief and care
And a word that's soft and gentle

Makes it easier to bear
You won't regret it
Women don't forget it
Love is their whole happiness

It's all so easy
Try a little tenderness

She may be weary
Women do get weary
Wearing the same shabby dress
And when she's weary

Try a little tenderness
You know she's waiting
Just anticipating things she may never possess
While she's without them

Try a little tenderness
It's not just sentimental
She has her grief and care
And a word that's soft and gentle

Makes it easier to bear
You won't regret it
Women don't forget it
Love is their whole happiness

It's all so easy
Try a little tenderness

Cry to me
 

When your baby leaves you all alone
And nobody calls you on the phone
Ah, don't you feel like crying?
Don't you feel like crying?
Well here I am my honey
Oh, come on you cry to me.

When you're all alone in your lonely room
And there's nothing but the smell of her perfume
Ah don't you feel like crying
Don't you feel like crying?
Ah don't you feel like crying?
Come on, come on cry to me.

Well nothing could be sadder
Than a glass of wine, all alone
Loneliness, loneliness,
it's such a waiste of time
Oh-oh yeah

You don't ever have to walk alone, oh you see
Oh come on, take my hand and baby won't you walk with me?
Oh ya

When you're waiting for a voice to come
In the night and there is no one
Ah don't you feel like crying? (cry to me)
Don't you feel like crying? (cry to me)
Ah don't you feel like a-ca-ca-cra-co-cra-co-cra-cra, (cry to me)
Cra-co-cra-co-cra-cra crying? (cry to me)
Ah don't you feel like a-cra-co-cra-co-cra-cra,
Cra-co-cra-co-cra-cra crying?...

Flesh and Blood 



Come sit beside me
that'll do for now
the night has come and left me
just the light that you allow

come speak my name
fill my head with all such foolish dreams
my flesh and blood
is no more real to me
than what it seems

my love for you is burning
like a spark along a fuse
i feel your mark upon me now
as surely as the hand that leaves the bruise

life is for the living
and life comes hard for some
the rest of us with flesh and blood
make it hard all along

all i ever wanted
was the freedom to refuse
or something of my own to love enough
to hate
to lose

the fever in my brain
is leaving smoke behind my eyes
but the part of me that wants to change
fights the part of me that trys

come see the golden light
cause i've turned the gold light on
sometimes god knows
you gotta learn to shine, shine, shine shine, shine gold.

i stepped out of darkness
and for a moment
i'm only living by your kiss your kiss your kiss your kiss your lips your kiss
and now, just for now, our flesh and blood
is more real than this
more real than this..
