Morning Song – Something To Talk About

November 17, 2015

Bonnie Raitt’s “Something To Talk About” grabs you about ten different ways…and that’s just on the intro:  the hums of the backing harmonies, the strong and funky back beat, the spare clean chords of the rhythm guitar, and finally Raitt’s own fat and greasy signature slide guitar licks.

Then the winking, conspiratorial, playful lyrics kick in over the reggae-influenced keyboards and you’re headfirst into the delights of an intoxicating love that’s fresh and alive, a little scary and a lot joyous, no matter what the age or how long it’s been going on.

I just ignore it but they keep saying we
Laugh just a little too loud,
Stand just a little too close;
We stare just a little too long;
Maybe they’re seeing something we don’t darling!

Let’s give ’em something to talk about….
