JILL SCOTT LYRICS

"Wanna Be Loved"

Mmmm,
Don't,don't,don't,don't,
Don't,(don't,don't) don't,don't,don't,
(don't don't)
It's bad,It's bad
Sometimes s**t is bad... (don't)
Look,

Don't feel no pity for me
Cause I'm going through a couple things,
Life means change,
That's the way it goes,goes
All my life I had a constant burning
A strong deep,desire
An aching ambiguous,yearning,yearning,
yearning

For something better
For something bigger
For something wider
For something higher
And lots of regrets
Cause I ain't seem to found it yet
I've been searching around the world
Never knowing what to expect
I get sad sometimes
Yes I be mad sometimes
Cause I'm out here on the grind
Making mine
And I still can't seem to find
What I've been looking for
Opened so many doors
For real,yo
I just wanna be loved...

[Chorus:]
I just wanna be loved
Like everybody else does
I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved [Repeat x4]
I just wanna be loved

[Chorus]
When I was driving earlier today a radio show was playing some songs from and commenting on her famous Carnegie Hall concert, and I remembered I have that CD. She is not even on my top list of favorite singers, but I love the passion with which she belted out those songs on that concert recording. I put it on when I got home, and...she is so good!
so what if I can't speak Portugese (yet) this is beautiful.... Marcus Valle 'Online' 12" version... let that Brasillian musical sunshine flow across you.... recommended in traffic jams or wide open roads... gasp.... music Smile

And if you want the baseline in stripped back pared down sound... well, it's hard to go past Edison X and 'Rainha Do Mar' - how chilled can ya get... Big Grin pass me a mojito!!

If you knew the kind of stuff I listened to, you'd see that I'd have a lot of nerve to chastize someone else's musical tastes. Razz


You know,

I listen to EVERYTHING!...and I mean everything! I just love music...and learned to appreciate all forms of it early on.

Then, when you think about all of the different ways so many songs have been done and re-done??? Amazing...

Right now, one of my favorite CD's is Brandon Heath's Don't Get Comfortable, with songs I'm Not Who I Was, Let's Make It Last (This is a SWEET Song!), and Red Sky.

By far my favorite is Jazz...and I love music of the world...

So much to listen to; so little time!

I clicked on the first link, ShayaButHer, and that song was nice. I've never heard of Heath. The name sounds like it belongs to a country singer.

I don't really get down with country music, but my musical taste is always evolving. I mean, I actually like a little blue grass. I mentioned the Carolina Chocolate Drops somewhere upthread.

As for jazz, I guess I'm just not that sophisticated. I've got some Ramsey Lewis, Wes Montgomery, Nina Simone, Ella, Billie, etc. in my music collection, but I can't wrap my brain around the more innovative styles of jazz.

I have a friend who's into Miles, Coltrane, Monk and them. So, I figured she might appreciate something different, and I burned her a world music CD. She wasn't feeling it. Eek Her excuse was that she just wasn't as "sophisticated" when it comes to world music. Oh, well.

You know, I didn't get into country music, in fact I DESPISED country music, until several years ago...my son INSISTED upon watching the CMA awards! I was like, "WHAT???? You want to watch WHAT???"

I specifically said, "Listen hun, ummmm....YOU can watch it, but Ms Savvy Thang don't get down with the twang...see ya, bye!"

...and he held up his lil finger and said, "Uh, uh, uh...wait a minute mom! What happened to the open mindedness you taught me??? We WILL be watching it!"

LOL...my slick kid!

Who would have "thunk it"...MY kid wanted to watch country music...the sin of all sins...LMAO!

...so we sat down to watch the country music awards, or rather HE sat down and I squirmed...LOL. ...and I actually LIKED a LOT of the music being performed!

Some songs that had me CRACKIN up were one by this woman who talked about burying her dude! It had something to do with being a crazy rednecked woman and being proud of that! LOL...

LAST year, we saw one by a teen girl, in which the lyrics say something about doing something with her boyfriend that "yer mama don't know"...LOL.... I think it is called "Our Song?" All I know is that every time I hear it, I LAUGH, Laugh, Laugh!

I liked watching US perform country music...I know we have a history of it, but it was good to see us in that form.

I also like how various music mixed at the CMA's...and how country has CHANGED up from the traditional twang.

MoreOver, I like the bluegrass, too...we have some lil dive places in the MidWest where you can go and hear some really good performers. Love and sing Vaugh, Holiday, Simone, Fitzgerald, etc...

Classics, Jazz Greats, World Music, Rock, etc....love it all. Another great reason to love the MidWest: besides the low home prices, great food, easy lifestyle, you have access to all SORTS of art and artists...and its easy distance to any part of the U.S...so you can always get what you are missing.

Oh, Wait! Porgy and Bess...LOVE the music to that!

Anybody here been exposed to that?

I was looking for the music from "Porgy and Bess" not too long ago. I ended up purchasing more William Grant Still i.e. "Still/Dawson/Ellington: Symphony No. 2/Negro Folk Symphony/Harlem."

I would love to own Quincy Jones's "Roots" soundtrack. I use to own it when the miniseries came out. That joint is hard to find now, though. Frown
