Song For A Black Woman
Influenced by 70's vocal soul groups such as the Chi-Lites and The Dells, with string orchestra, lush harmonies and sitar. This tune is inspired by the work of Nina Simone. I wanted to try a very direct and personal lyric, as if I'm speaking to her. It's a pretty moody tune, contemplative and cool, as was the person - at least as long as you didn't upset her. Then, beware. If all of this describes your relationship with your own significant other, you'll feel this one. Also dedicated to the memory of my friend and collaborator Denise Johnson. Lyrics: Girl, when you smile there’s a sense of mystery There’s emotion when you close your eyes And when you speak in the voice of history Sacred moments become crystallised And when I hear you calling It doesn’t matter whether I’m on another planet Play on the keyboard just like something heavenly Although your words are bittersweet Isn’t it stranger than strange fruit can ever be The anger growing on the street? And when I hear you calling It doesn’t matter whether I’m from a different country Sit right down and count your fingers What’s a girl supposed to do? You were born to be unhappy They were there to make you blue All the saints and all the sinners All the politicians too And the raindrops keep on falling Feel them falling all around you. #SONGS #INSTAGOOD #BEAT #BEATS #JAM #MYJAM #NEWSONG #LOVETHISSONG #FAVORITESONG #BESTSONG #LISTENTOTHIS #GOODMUSIC #MUSICPROMO #MUSICBLOG #INSTAMUSIC #NEWMUSIC #NP #ARTISTRACK @hakimjamalmusic #musictips #musicinfluencer #musicnews #musicindustrynews #musicmarketing #musicbusiness #musicbusinesstips #indiemusician #instabeat #beatproducer #musicproductionlife #instaproducer #beatmakerlife #musictheory #hiphopproducer #rapperproducer #recordingstudio #studioone #plugin #audioengineer #audioengineering #flstudio #producedby #prodby #producersbelike #bedroommusicianmore
