February 1, 2013
Sounds similar to: John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Raphael Saadiq
Hi there, Whuzzerface here.
You are in for a treat with this one! Maybe it’s something in the water or in the way they talk that makes some British artists impeccable soul singers. Take Dusty Springfield for example. “Son of A Preacher Man” was a massive hit on the radio waves. Did anyone fathom that it was a white Brit chick on the other end of that record?! No they did not. Now, Jamie Lidell may not be a woman, but her certainly carries soul music like an American. It’s surprising really. I know that this song had a great deal of sucess when it was first released, but this particular version I’m sure you’ve never heard before. I firmly believe this is how the song should be forever remember in the annals of time. This key fits the melody better than a custom-made glove. Add to that the sweet sweet ivory stylings of Chilly Gonzales and you know this song will get your toes a’ tappin’. The message of the lyrics? When you feel like everything in life is eating away and reducing you down to size, take a break, “multiply” and come back swinging.
Do just that this weekend – GO MULTIPLY YOUR AWESOME SELF!!
