Joe South (1940-2012)

FLOWERY BRANCH, GEORGIA, STATI UNITI - Joe South, cantautore americano, è morto oggi. Il suo primo singolo, la bellissima The purple people eater meets the witch doctor, risale al 1958. Ha poi inciso un sacco di canzoni tra cui Games people play, Fool me e Walk a mile in my shoes (in seguito rifatta dal Re in persona) e suonato alcune delle parti di basso e di chitarra in uno dei dischi-capolavoro di Dylan: Blonde on blonde.

Ha inoltre lavorato come compositore per Gene Vincent (per il quale ha scritto Gone gone gone e I might have known), Lynn Anderson (Rose garden), nonché per un tizio dagli occhi di ghiaccio (Down in the boondocks e Hush, pezzo che poi i Deep Purple hanno reso strafamoso sul loro pianeta di provenienza: Mondo Rock).

  1. Nah, nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah (two times)

    I got a certain little girl she's on my mind
    No doubt about it she looks so fine
    She's the best girl that I ever had
    Sometimes she's gonna make me feel so bad

    Nah, nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah (two times)

    Hush, hush
    I thought I heard her calling my name now
    Hush, hush
    She broke my heart but I love her just the same now
    Hush, hush
    Thought I heard her calling my name now
    Hush, hush
    I need her loving and I'm not to blame now

    (Love, love)
    They got it early in the morning
    (Love, love)
    They got it late in the evening
    (Love, love)
    Well, I want that, need it
    (Love, love)
    Oh, I gotta gotta have it

    She's got loving like quicksand
    Only took one touch of her hand
    To blow my mind and I'm in so deep
    That I can't eat and I can't sleep

    Nah, nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah (two times)

    (Listen)
    Hush, hush
    Thought I heard her calling my name now
    Hush, hush
    She broke my heart but I love her just the same now
    Hush, hush
    Thought I heard her calling my name now
    Hush, hush
    I need her loving and I'm not to blame now

    (Love, love)
    They got it early in the morning
    (Love, love)
    They got it late in the evening
    (Love, love)
    Well, I want that, need it
    (Love, love)
    Hey, I gotta gotta have it

    Nah, nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah, nah-nah-nah (two times)

    Nahhh, nah-nah-nahhh, nah-------------------
