Ms. Jody - "Take Me"

"Take Me" is the reason I love southern soul so!  This song is taken from Ms. Jody's Keepin' It Real CD and it is being played a lot in south/west central Alabama.  I actually loved this song the very first time I heard it and I never get tired of listening to it.  Ms. Jody said that if there's anybody lonely, she is available - please take her.  Ahh, if it were only that easy!  (smile)  In this song, the lyrics are good, the music is great, and her voice is right on - it's amazing!  This song is just about perfect!

Is anybody lonely, please take me

I’ve been lonely enough for a long long time
And the man that I had ya’ll, well he wasn’t even mine
Now it’s in his kiss, just the way the man feels
He used to kiss me and take away all my ills
But now when he kisses me
He just gives me a smack
And that let’s me know
That he might not come back

Is anybody lonely, lonely
Please take me
Is anybody lonely, lonely
Please take me

I’m so tired waking up all by myself
When I’d rather be lying? all close to someone else
But I can see that he loves me, all in his eyes
And I don’t have to worry about him
Telling me no lies
Someone that will say baby, I love you
And I don’t have to hear, oh yeah, I love you, too

Is anybody lonely
Please take me

When I’m feeling down and out
I want someone that understands
And take me by my hand
And say baby I'm your man

Is anybody lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely
Please take me
Is anybody lonely out there tonight
Please take me

See I’m at that age in life I just want to relax and have a good time
When I find a special someone I want to make him all mine

Enjoy!

J. Blackfoot - "I'm Just A Fool"

What a beautiful voice - we are truly missing J. Blackfoot.  This is a song he did with Lenny Williams and it is an amazing ballad.  I'm just a fool in love with you - this song is simply beautiful.  If you get a chance, check out the version of this song that J. remade with his nephew, Sir Charles Jones.  I'm usually not big on remakes but this one is even better than the original!

Awesome music!

Marvin Sease - "Do You Qualify?"

You know, sometimes you just have to pull out the good stuff.  Here's a wonderful Marvin Sease song that is simple but amazing.  I often tell people that Marvin was so versatile and there was much more to him than Candy Licker.  If you like Marvin's music, you'll like this.

I’m not worried about what they want
I’m not looking for a one night stand
I’m looking for a woman who needs a man
And I’m not looking for a bump and grind
If you do right, girl I’ll make you mine

Chorus
I need a woman and I’m looking at you girl, let me ask you honey,
Do you qualify?

I need somebody to be in my life
And one day be my wife
I need somebody to hold my hand
And makes me feel like I’m her man

Chorus

If you never had a brand new car, I don’t mind buying you one
And if you never had a diamond ring, I don’t mind buying you one
And if you’re tired of wearing the same old clothes
I don’t mind buying you some

I’ve just got one question, I just want to ask you
Do you qualify?

Enjoy!

Stephanie McDee - "Pony Slide"

Giddy up, giddy up girls, yeehaw, come on, let's go!  I hear this song every Saturday on Mobile's All Blues Saturday - WDLT.  I like the melody a lot and the song grows on you.  However, I call this grown folks music and I probably wouldn't play it around my kids - I wouldn't want to answer any questions they may have. (smile)  Here's the first verse:

Saddle up! Throw it to the left, now throw it to the right
Sling it to the front, now back it up how you like
Take it down to the floor
How low can you go, make him holler for more
Make that tootsie roll

Enjoy!

Johnnie Taylor - "I Love You Lady"

It's been a few weeks since my last JT post and I needed a Johnnie Taylor fix tonight.  "I Love You Lady" hits the spot.  He says that after all the things they've been through, he wonders how lucky one man can be.  I love this man!

Sitting here reminiscing about how good you’ve been to me
And all other things we’ve been through together
Sometime I wonder how lucky can one man be
To have a love like yours
That gets better and better and better

Chorus
That’s why I love you lady
I love the way, the way you’ve been loving me
I love you lady
I love the way, the way you’ve been loving me
Don’t you ever ever take your love away

Sometime I sit up in the midnight hour
I watch you while you’re sleeping
Reach over and run my fingers gently through your hair
I thank God for this angel
Trusting me and ......... (I'm sorry, I couldn't get this right)
Your love is so special, girl
And no one could ever compare

Chorus
Enjoy!

Frank Mendenhall - "All Blues Saturday"

The more I hear Frank Mendenhall's music, the more I love it.  He has a really unique sound and he's another southern soul artist that left here way too soon.  He left behind some fantastic music.  I recently found out that he was from Camden, in the Possum Bend area, and I wish I had had a chance to meet him. "All Blues Saturday" is a great southern soul song that is all about listening to the blues and having a good time.  Like so many of us, he waited all week long to get to the weekend - I know what he means!!

They say this is the place to go if you want to party
They say this is the place to be if you want a good time
They say that the dee jays sho’ know how to party on a Saturday
I just come to party, shake my rump all night long
I’ve been waiting all week long to get to the weekend
For the all blues Saturday
I just want to listen to the blues
Then I want to dance all day

Fish fry in the back yard, barbecue on the grill
It’s an all blues Saturday, I got my cooler full
Please let the dee jays keep on playing those blues all day
I just want to party, it’s an all blues Saturday

I’ve been waiting all week long to get to the weekend
For the all blues Saturday
I just want to listen to the blues
And then I want to dance all day

I’ve been waiting all week long to get to the weekend
For the all blues Saturday
I just want to listen to the blues
And I want to dance all day

Everybody out there in the night club
All out there in the roads (?)
Even out there that are working all day long
Know they want to party too
They’ve been waiting all week long to get to the weekend
For the all blues Saturday
They just want to hear the dee jay play the blues all day


Note:  The song stops around the 3:45 mark.
Enjoy!!

J. Blackfoot

The world paused for a second when J. Blackfoot transitioned to the other side. I had just found out that he had been sick, and still performing, and it hurt my heart to hear that he passed. J. Blackfoot was one of those artists I grew up listening to and kept following year after year. He was awesome with the Soul Children and they had tons of hits. I remember Heresay, The Sweeter He Is, I’ll Understand, I’ll Be The Other Woman, Don’t Take My Kindness For Weakness, Love Makes It Right, and more. And for when he went solo, there’s the classic Taxi, Just One Lifetime, Two Different People, In My Bedroom, Your Man Is Home Tonight, Same Time Same Place, I'm Just A Fool, and I could keep going on and on. J. Blackfoot’s voice was unforgettable and his voice was so amazing. I listened to him as a teenager and also through my entire adult life. The music he left behind is timeless and will live forever through our stereos, iPods, radios, youtube/internet sites, etc. I’m so thankful for all he gave us.

See my posts about J. Blackfoot dated 8/14/2011, 9/5/2011, and 11/13/2011.
