Month O’ love: Ain’t nobody

ย  Yesterday I put up “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and I remembered other songs beginning with ain’t. My runaway favourite is Ain’t nobody by Rufus and Chaka Khan. Chaka Khan is one of the most flamboyant singers ever… She’s one of my favourite female singers of all time.

ย  Ain’t Nobody won the 1983 grammy for best vocal performance by a duo or group and was a monster hit, but I wasn’t born at the time… at least not in this body. I’d always liked the sound of the song but when I watched “bringing down the house”, I “fell in love” with the song and today it’s one of my absolute favourite songs. I just discovered that the song was written by a man and one of the members of the band Rufus and Chaka Khan.

Month O’ love: Ain’t no mountain high enough

This weekend I experienced severe apathy for blogging, I didn’t post on my blog or visit any blog for that matter.

Month O’ love: It must be love

Don Williams tells us this is love… Is he correct?

“It Must Be Love”
First I get cold then hot
Think I’m on fire
But I’m not
Oh, what a pain I’ve got
It must be love.

There’s nothin’ I can do
All that I want is you
Look what I’m goin’ through
It must be love.

It must be love
It must be love
I fall like a sparrow
Fly like a dove
You must be the dream
I’ve been dreamin’ of
Oh, what a feelin’
It must be love.

Somethin’ is wrong
Alright
I think of you all night
Can’t sleep till mornin’ light
It must be love.

Seein’ you in my dreams
Feelin’ you close to me
Oh, what eles can it be?
It must be love.

It must be love
It must be love
I fall like a sparrow
Fly like a dove
You must be the dream
I’ve been dreamin’ of
Oh, what a feelin’
It must be love.

It must be love
It must be love
I fall like a sparrow
Fly like a dove
You must be the dream
I’ve been dreamin’ of
Oh, what a feelin’
It must be love.
It must be love
It must be love
I fall like a sparrow
Fly like a dove
You must be the dream
I’ve been dreamin’ of
Oh, what a feelin’
It must be love…
