My favourite songs // Songs I like episode 5

Maybe I should rename this series the love songs series, I’m featuring more of love songs, please note that I’m not going to feature any gospel song on this series after all can salt water and fresh water flow from one source? Mba.
Today I’m putting up Luther Vandross’s So Amazing, it’s an amazing song! While the lyrics are little unrealistic, unless the love is less than a month old, that person you love would have made you sad, little wonder one of the qualities of love is endurance; ‘love endures all things’. I’m a huge Luther Vandross fan, will have to write a post on him soon, his voice always reminds me of a cold mixture of malta Guinness and peak evaporated milk on a hot day or a sleepless night *will knock you out* (them no pay me for product placement sef). While ‘dance with my father’ is probably his best known song, my guy had so many classics. As I type; ‘love the one you’re with’ is playing on my note, the song is so upbeat! ‘If I didn’t know better’ is my personal favorite, I like the honesty and no dramaesque tones of the song, and of course his delicious vocals. Before I get sidetracked by my love for Luther and go into full scale L-adoration, here are the lyrics to So Amazing.

“So Amazing”
Love has truly been good to me
Not even one sad day
Or minute have I had since you’ve come my way
I hope you know I’d gladly go
Anywhere you’d take me

It’s so amazing to be loved
I’d follow you to the moon in the sky above
Ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…I’d go

Got to tell you how you thrill me
I’m happy as I can be
You have come and it’s changed my whole world
Bye-bye sadness, hello mellow
What a wonderful day

It’s so amazing to be loved
I’d follow you to the moon in the sky above
Ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…ooh…I’d go

And it’s so amazing, amazing
I could stay forever, forever
Here in love and no, leave you never
‘Cause we’ve got amazing love

Truly it’s so amazing, amazing
Love brought us together, together
I will leave you never and never
I guess we’ve got amazing love

Ooh, so amazing and I’ve been waiting
For a love like you

It’s so amazing to be loved
I’d follow you to the moon in the sky above
Oh, and it’s so, it’s so

It’s so amazing to be loved
I’d follow you to the moon in the sky above
And you know, it’s so

It’s so amazing to be loved
I’d follow you to the moon in the sky above
Hey…hey…hey…yeah…it’s so

It’s so amazing to be loved
I’d follow you to the moon in the sky above
Hey…hey…yeah…hey…yeah…yeah…hey…it’s so

It’s so amazing to be loved
I’d follow you to the moon in the sky above

Nobody does soul and RnB like Luther Vandross, nobody!
  The next song is by Carlos Santana with vocals by Seal, it’s a beautiful song, lyrics totally on point. When I was in secondary school, my classmate and friend was always singing the song, the guy (her brother’s friend) she was crushing on at the time liked the song. Right now it’s one of my favourite songs ever, its lyrics resonate with me and it gives me a connection to her, she left this cruel world in 2007.

“You Are My Kind”
(feat. Seal)
Stay with me baby
And that’s all I ask of you
And I know that someday
You won’t remember
The way that this moment feels to you
Don’t let it go
Don’t turn your back on what you think you know
You never know you know
Don’t leave it alone
Cause I need you to cling to

[Chorus:]
Cause you are my kind
You’re all that I want
Here in this life
Until we are gone
Our breath and our skin
Our hearts and our minds
They’re one and the same
You are my kind

Well call on me baby
If you should ever need someone
To help get your head straight
I’ll be your resident all night
Sure am glad just having you around
Well all that I know
When you find love you never let it go
You never know you know
Without you I’m lost
I get scattered
I’m shattered

[Chorus:]
Cause you are my kind
You’re all that I want
Here in this life
Until we are gone
Our breath and our skin
Our hearts and our minds
They’re one and the same
Cause you are my kind
We’re one and the same
You are my kind

Don’t let it go
Don’t turn your back on what you think you know
You never know you know
Don’t leave it alone
Cause I need you to cling to

[Chorus:]
Cause you are my kind
You’re all that I want
Here in this life
Until we are gone
Our breath and our skin
Our hearts and our minds
They’re one and the same
Cause you are my kind

[Bridge]
Our love and our life
My heart and my soul
I need you tonight
Your love makes me whole
And it’s all I can stand
Until you come home
I need you tonight
Cause you are my kind
I need you tonight
Cause you are my kind

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh you are my kind
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh you are my kind

In 1996, the hosts of the ultimate morning show on Raypower 100.5 were crazy about ‘kiss from a rose’ and used to play it practically every morning at about 6:30, loved the song then, didn’t even know it won accolades, love the bladdy song even more now but I think Seal’s best song is Crazy! That is a song!
As I type this, one of my friends is in Freedom Park for Afropolitan vibes and having a blast and sending pictures despite knowing I really want to be there but can’t be there because of unassailable reasons. Should I send a guided missile to annihilate this said friend?
