레이파커 Jr. & Raydio- A woman needs love (A woman needs love, 1981) 음악

지난 주부터 간만에 80년대 팝송에 버닝중.

2016년 다시 리메이크 된 [고스트버스터즈]의 그 유명한 테마송을 부른 레이 파커 주니어는 그 독특한 보컬톤으로 팝전쟁의 한가운데에서도 자신의 위치를 가지고 있는 뮤지션이었다. 저음이면서도 톡톡 튀는 힘이 있고, 특히 흑인색감이 많이 빠져있어 백인들에게도 쉽게 다가설 수 있는 음색이었다.
예전에 소개한 바 있는 84년의 걸작 "Jamie"도 (이 곡 진짜 좋음) 소개한 바 있는데, 오늘 소개하는 곡은 국내에선 거의 알려지지 않는 그의 솔로데뷔 이전의 훵크 그룹인 Raydio 시절에 히트한 작품. 이 '레이디오' 역시 장르는 훵크지만, 팝쪽에 가까운 그룹이었다.

1981년 빌보드 핫차트 4위까지 올랐고 알앤비 앨범차트 1위, 알앤비 싱글차트 1위를 차지한 곡으로, 이미 그의 솔로커리어의 색감이 물씬 난다. 특히 긁어대는 베이스음이 매력만점.

Ray Parker Jr. & Raydio- A woman needs love (just like you do) (1981년)


A woman needs love just like you do, hoo
Don't kid yourself into thinkin' that she don't
She can fool around just like you do, hoo
Unless you give her all the lovin' she wants

Don't the mistake of thinkin' old fashioned [Ooh, ooh]
Times have changed from yesterday
But no longer will those old double standards [Ooh, ooh]
Be accepted by the women of today

So when you think you're foolin' her
She just might be foolin' you
Remember if you can do it
She can too

Because a woman needs love just like you do, hoo
Hey, don't kid yourself into thinking that she don't
She can fool around just like you do, hoo
Unless you give her all the lovin' she wants

When her eyes are beggin' for affection [Ooh, ooh]
Don't put her off, don't make her wait
Don't try to give her that worn out excuse [Ooh, ooh]
About being tired and workin' late

I tell you one day you'll come home
Early from work [Home from work]
Open up the door
And get your feelings hurt

Because she needs it, yeah [Just like you do, hoo]
A woman's got to have it, whoa, yeah, just like you
And if you're smart, mmm, [Just like you do, hoo] you better stop foolin'
around, hey, hey
'Cause she will too, oh

Just like you do, hoo
Thinking that she don't, hoo, ooh
Just like you, hoo
Now an example to you

Is by the time poor Jack
Returned up the hill
Somebody else
Had been lovin' Jill

A woman needs love just like you do, hoo
Hey, don't kid yourself into thinkin' that she don't
She can fool around [Yeah, just like you do, hoo], she will fool around so
You better take out some insurance and be sure she won't

Give her the love, mmm [Just like you do, hoo], yeah
That sweet, sweet love, she wants it just like you
'Cause she can fool around [Just like you do, hoo] just like she will fool
around
With you or without you, just like you do

A woman needs love just like you do, hoo
Hey, don't kid yourself into thinking that she don't, hoo, ooh
She can fool around just like you, hoo
A woman needs it just like you
