I’ve been looking through my drafts folder at some of the songs that I didn’t quite get to presenting as part of my Song Lyric Sunday posts. This one has sat there for months, I can’t even remember what the prompt was. But, you know … Barry White! I kept hold of it because I knew it was a good post.
The song is real Seventies – first performed in 1974. He reached #1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and on the R&B chart, #8 in the UK.
We lost Barry White in 2003, aged just 58. He had various health problems in later life, and suffered a stroke while undergoing kidney dialysis in May, 2003. He clung on until July. Every time I read something like this, I realise how lucky I am – because not all of us survive. But what a voice he had!
