Soul Shake Saturday Tunes: Spotlight on Roy Ayers

3 Mar

Every now and then I am so in the mood to listen to Searching by Roy Ayers.  I suppose I first remembering hearing Roy’s music–his blend of funk, soul and jazz, his signature vibraphone playing, in the 1980’s.

Searching is for a late Saturday morning, slow,  cup of tea in your hand, dreamy start to your day…

SEARCHING

See a butterfly
Up in the sky
I got a story to say
And I`ll tell you why
I`m searchin’

You see my friend
And I need someone
Who feels and needs
The same as I
I`m searchin’

When it`s right, it`s right
When it`s wrong,it`s wrong
I`m gonna sing my song
All day long
I`m searchin’

Running Away is for Saturday night out dancing off the one you said good bye to…

RUNNING AWAY

Dippy Doo, Run, Run, Run

Hey, I’m taking my bag
And I’m running away now
Cause you’ve been mean to me
And I’ve been good to you
And I’ve been oh so strong
HEY YA YA HAA HAA

Hey, I’m taking my bag
And I’m running away now
Cause you’ve been mean to me
And I’ve been good to you
And I’ve been oh so strong
HEY YA YA HAA HAA

You don’t spend the time when I’m in need
We don’t love each other like we used to do
Baby I’ll come back another day
You don’t do the thing you used to do
Running, Running, Running, Far Away
Running Away
