Luther Vandross – Superstar (from Live at Wembley)

I wanna tell you, baby
The changes I’ve been goin’ through
Missin’ you, missin’ you, oh, oh
Till you come back to me
I don’t know what I’m gonna do
No, no
Don’t you remember you told me you loved me, baby
You said you’d be comin’ back this way again, baby
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, oh, baby
I love you
Yeah, I really do
Long ago
And oh, so far away
I fell in love with you
Before the second show
And your guitar
And you sound so sweet and clear
But you’re not really here
It’s just the radio
Don’t you remember you told me you loved me, baby
You said you’d be comin’ back this way again, baby
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh, baby, yeah
I love you
I really do
yeah, hey, eah, yeah, hey, hey
(To belong) whoa, ho, oh, whoa, ho, ho
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
You looked for me to be yours
You want my love, but you’re on the road
Don’t you remember me anymore
Loneliness
Is such a sad affair
A sad affair
And I can hardly wait
To be with you again
And what to say, to say
To make you come again
Oh, honey
Come on back to me again, yeah, hey
I wanna be, I wanna be anywhere you are
Don’t you remember you told me you loved me, baby
You said you’d be comin’ back this way again, baby
Baby, baby, baby, woo, baby, oh, baby
Yes, I love you
I really do
Yeah, hey
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh
Play it easy, play it easy
Keep it right there, keep it right there, keep it right there
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
What are you gonna say
It’s alright, it’s alright
Ooh, baby, it’s alright, it’s alright
Alright now
Keep it right there, keep it right there
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It’s alright, it’s alright
Ooh, baby, it’s alright, it’s alright
Say it’s alright, it’s alright
Say, ooh, baby, it’s alright, it’s alright
Alright now
Eah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Eah, ooh, ooh, yeah, hea
Say it’s alright, it’s alright
Ooh, baby, it’s alright, it’s alright
Alright now
Alright now
I used to be sad
But now it’s alright, it’s alright
Ooh, baby, it’s alright, it’s alright
Alright now
I wonder, I wonder
Where are you again tonight
Are you holdin’ someone else real tight
I wonder, I wonder, I wonder

Superstar / Until You Come Back to Me (That’s What I’m Gonna Do) lyrics © Reservoir Media Management Inc

You Stopped Loving Me
You know
I’ve had a lot of things happen to me in my life
And yet
I don’t spend much of my time
Feelin’ sad
I don’t let anything turn my sunshine to rain
I never have
Well, people have told me I’m not worth the time of day
Said I was over the hill
And it’s been said that I always get in the way
But nothin’ seemed to hurt me till
You stopped lovin’
You stopped lovin’ me
Why’d you do that
You stopped lovin’
You stopped lovin’ me
Lovin’ me
And I don’t want to do
Don’t know what I’m gonna do, my love
I just can’t get it together since
Oh
Out of your love, my love came
You made me strong
Well, it’s just a shame, I don’t know who or what to blame
Now that you’re gone
I walk down the avenue right where I first met you
That nothin’ else could do, yeah, yeah
Not a place I go through that I don’t run into
Somethin’ to remind me that
You stopped lovin’
You stopped lovin’ me
Why’d you do that
You stopped lovin’, oh
You stopped lovin’ me
Lovin’ me
And I don’t want to do
Don’t know what I’m gonna do, my love
I just can’t get it together since
No, I just can’t get it together since
I just can’t get it together since, no
Ooh…oh…ho…
You stopped lovin’, whoa, whoa
You stopped lovin’ me, whoa, whoa, whoa
You stopped lovin’, whoa, whoa
You stopped lovin’ me, whoa, whoa, whoa
I wonder why, wonder why, baby
(You stopped lovin’ me) Why’d you do it, why’d you do that
(You stopped lovin’) I wonder why, wonder why, baby
(You stopped lovin’ me) Why’d you do it, girl, girl, yeah
Why’d you do that, girl
(You stopped lovin’ me) I wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
(You stopped lovin’) Why’d you do that, baby
(You stopped lovin’ me) You stopped, you stopped, you stopped
You don’t no more, you surely stopped, girl
(You stopped lovin’ me) Oh…oh…yes, you did
(You stopped lovin’) If you don’t anymore, you’ve surely stopped, girl
(You stopped lovin’ me)
I wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
(You stopped lovin’ me) Why’d you do that, why’d you do that, baby
(You stopped lovin’)
(You stopped lovin’ me)

Luther Vandross – Give Me The Reason

Ooh­ooh­oo­
Yeah­yeah­
Ooh­ooh­
Eah­eah­eah­
Oh­
What’s there to say, there’s not much to talk about
And whatever happened to all of the love that we vowed
Yes, it’s true
And there’s nothing new
You can say
Give me the reason to want you back
Why should I love you again
Do you know, tell me how
How to forgive and forget
Give me the reason to love you now
It’s been a mighty long time
And the love that used to be
Ended the day you walked out
Never knew I’d ever be
Standing a love and outside
With no one to love
Yeah-eah­
Ooh­ooh­eah­
I was secure and so glad there was you to love
What in the world would I ever do without us
But it’s getting clear
That I have to get over you
Give me the reason to want you back
Why should I love you again
Do you know, tell me how
How to forgive and forget
Give me the reason to love you now
It’s been a mighty long time
And the love that used to be
Ended the day you walked out
Never knew I’d ever be
Standing a love and outside
With no one to love
No one, no one to love
No one, no one to love
No one, no one to love
No one, no one to love
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
You, ooh­eah­eah­
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Give me the reason to want you back
Why should I love you again
Do you know, tell me how
How to forgive and forget
Give me the reason to love you now
It’s been a mighty long time
And the love that used to be
Ended the day you walked out
Give me the reason
To love you, girl
To love you, girl
To love you, girl
To love you, girl
To love you, girl
Give me the reason
To love you, girl
To love you
To love you, girl
Ooh
To love you, girl
To love you, girl
To love you, girl
To love you, girl

Luther Vandross – She’s so Good to Me


Luther Vandross – Live At Wembley 1987 – If Only For One Night


Luther Vandross – Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now (from Always and Forever: An Evening of Songs at The Royal Alb…


Yer Semi-Weekly Blarg (warning: steep deep end)

Yesterday. All my troubles seemed — to be taken out on stage by the happiness of my love for writing, revising, rehearsing, and executing musical compositions. With my friends. For a superb audience.

I am grateful for my band mates and friends and family and fans who joined us for my 23rd year of playing at the Capitol Hill People’s Fair. Too many people in my life have passed on and I remember them being there for me for so many years, so many shows, good and sometimes *not so good* and absurd, bizarre, impossible to explain memories. I remember almost every show I have played, when and where, with whom, and the experiences and the people who have come, gone, stayed, and the ones who aren’t here anymore to laugh and play with us. We work hard, sometimes I may be obsessively diligent and proud of working 60 hour weeks — but that’s what I think keeps me rollin’ along. I love my life because I can write it out and play it for you in less than five minutes. And I love my band. And I love the friends who are kind enough to keep coming back and motivating me to be as good as I can be at this game of musical wars that it tends to be — but I don’t let it get to me — I won’t see someone as or let them be more important than anyone else because they have the power to make or break you on the scene. Of course it’s healthy to be competitive, but we aren’t competing. We aren’t judging or criticizing. We are still playing music that we composed and not in this for the money (although we don’t turn it down) and hell, we are not going away as long as we still are being asked to show up. No apologies. I speak for myself and the kids in the band when I say we wouldn’t do this if we didn’t have the balance and ability and joy to play well with others. Enjoy what you gots. You can have it all and set your standards however you like. You can do what you say you are going to do -and- carry through. No one is better than anyone else or has the right to take away what you love in life — not with their words, actions and behavior, or their demeanor.

I have to be grateful for those who have destroyed me as much as I am grateful for those who have mended me.

I have written this statement once before and I have to think to myself that maybe it is more significant than ever.

Saving a person’s life when he is seconds away from stepping off that ledge was not part of the plan. A few years ago, saving a life was important to me until this turned on me as something that was my fault; I knew this was clearly not the case — I was so glad I was there at the right time and place to prevent this — but I was no hero to the people who I loved. I learned what it was to be the anti-hero more than I ever believed possible.  But no no no, I can cleanly admit that I learned that I was a hero, damn it, and to let go of the ones who made an effort to destroy me from that moment in time that I walked into a bad situation, to the phone call I made for help. (Note: Call 911 when someone tries to commit suicide because he or she will certainly try to do it again, sometimes that same day.) The strangeness of thinking — that seconds later, I would have found this person dead and maybe I would never recover from the guilt of not showing up in time, shadowed the years of the disrespect and evil that plagued me because I got in his way of getting out the easy way — and retaliation takes on a wretched anguished ghost who is always there to let you know, “Hey, dude. You are going to hell for getting in the way of destiny,” and shreds pieces of your life and limited time on the planet in order to carry on and live well, and then what happens:

Your life changes you; you change your life.

I’m not dwelling on the reasons I have been destroyed. When I was in those moments, it was difficult to avoid the sick feeling of reflecting for and with no reason, and empty hopes and pure loathing of self, but yes: I am out of there now. I have been for awhile. But I’m better than that — I am fucking lucky that I saved his life and so are the people who weren’t so sure. Those people will never know how to thank me, yet I thank them for teaching me who I am and being myself and happy about it all. Their hostility is common and I know to let it go when I see it. You can have it. Keep it; I can’t sail that ship, I will swim back to shore, please send me my mail and keep the rest of my stuff, or give it to someone else. I don’t want you to give me another gigantic piece of anything- tangible or intangible – that it takes every last drop of sweat to mend for myself so I don’t end up on the wrong side of the rope (so to speak).

Right now, the circumstances are trying to break me again but have not done so. Right now, I am mending and letting it go. Right now, I have myself to rely on — no one else should have to help me — and although the damage is done, I am not finished and I need some letting go. I will be on the other side of this situation and then I can bury it. And write about it.

Saving a life and saving yourself are both similar and equally dangerous. But I get to try to meliorate and rehabilitate myself and spare myself the long ride on the wave of mental erosion and psychopathic entities who betray in the most unfathomable manner, and who hate and break and enjoy it. Watching you struggle is what they need to be happy.

Whatever. 

I’m grateful anyway. I never promised you a rose garden. I’m not the sharpest pencil in the pack. I’m not unhappy either.

I know who I am. I’m grateful for that and for losing so much that I never really had – and being a rock star for getting back up, dusting myself off, tipping my hat and exiting the theatre rather than the sharpening the stick and returning with the blackness of hatred I was meandering through too long. I sharpen the stick to make a point; the point of it all is how you find your way back to the shore, back to the mountain after a cliffhanger, back to music after the silence stops making so much noise.

You are allowed to be happy and to laugh despite yourself.

Today is the first day of the rest of your series of other first days of your life. 

Please keep off the grass and don’t feed the dog and don’t stay with someone who makes you truly feel bad about yourself.

You should be playing anyway. That’s what I would do.

PRIME (Wendy Clark 2018)
How did you ever let yourself get so far?
When was the last time you bothered to notice at all?
It only takes one mistake to turn the inside right back out
Certainly it’s blinding me as I believed everything you were about
I’m in the prime of my life
Yeah, I’m in the prime of my life

CHORUS
Will you recall these were the best days of your life?
Will it have ever seemed so nice?

How did just forget the words to the song?
When was the last time the audience had to sing along
You only take 445 mistakes to let the outside right back in
Gradually you find yourself looking past the place you begin
I’m in the prime of my life
Yeah, I’m in the prime of my life

CHORUS
Will you recall these were the best days of your life? Will it ever have seemed so nice? Will you recall these were the best days that you had? Will it ever feel so bad?

How did you fall illogically away
Why the hell did you leave me so far away
It only takes a million times to find yourself again
Please help me find my peace of mind before I get to the end I get to the end I get to the end of the end of the end…
