The My Mama & Dem selection of the week is For The Love of You Part 1 & 2 by The Isley Brothers. It is from their album The Heat Is On released in 1975. Now you already know that this song is not to be played with because it has 2 parts! If you haven’t heard the greatness that is The Isley Brothers, then you have clearly been deprived, and need to Google, Spotify, YouTube or whatever you need to do to get this musical lesson. The thing I love about the songs My Mama & Dem listened to back in the day is that the lyrical content.
Anytime you say you are living for the love of someone, you know that it’s real! How does one live for the love of someone? That right there my friends is a lyric! Songs these days just aren’t giving you anything where lyrics are concerned. Please, please, please if you’re not familiar with my Uncles The Isley Brothers, GET FAMILIAR!
