Al Green

Al Green is so freakin sexy. Not the man himself per se, but his music. My favorite Al Green song is "Let's Stay Together":

I, I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is all right with me
'Cause you make me feel so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Since, since we've been together
Loving you forever
Is what I need
Let me be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue

Let's, let's stay together
Lovin' you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why, why some people break up
Then turn around and make up
I just can't see
You'd never do that to me (would you, baby)
Staying around you is all I see
(Here's what I want us to do)

(Repeat To Fade):

Let's, we oughta stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

If we hired a motown band for our wedding instead of the jazz band, they would have HAD to play this song well. (I heard some pretty awful versions of this when viewing video clips of some $10K bands--this song and "Turn the Beat Around" never really passed the test.)

My favorite part of this song is when he asks why people break up to turn around and make up because I agree--I just can't see. It just seems like a waste of time to me.
