DQC
I Loves Your Porgy

Someday I know he's coming to call me
He's going to handle me and hold me soon
He's going to be like dying, Porgy
When he calls me
But when he comes I know I'll have to go


BYC
For All We Know

For all we know
This might only be a dream
We come and we go
Like the ripples, like the ripples in the stream
So baby, love me, love me tonight
Tomorrow was made for some
Oh, but tomorrow
But tomorrow may never, never come


D'Avi
Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair

Black is the color of my true love's hair
His face so soft and wondrous fair
The purest eyes
And the strongest hands
I love the ground on where he stands


London
Work Song

Gonna see my sweet honey bee
Gonna break this chain off to run
Gonna lay down somewhere shady
Lord I sure am hot in the sun
Hold it right there while I hit it
Well reckon that ought to get it
Been Workin' and workin'
But I still got so terribly far to go


Mack
Gin House Blues

Stay away from me cos I'm in my sin
Stay away from me everybody cos I'm in my sin
If this joint is raided somebody give my gin
Don't try me nobody cos you will never win
Mm yeah don't try me nobody cos you will never win
I'll fight the army and navy somebody gives me my gin


Silence.
I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)

Like a lonely weeping willow lost in the wood
I got it bad and that ain't good!
And the things I tell my pillow no woman should
I got it bad and that ain't good!
Tho folks with good intentions tell me to save my tears
I'm glad I'm mad about him I can't live without him
Lord above me make him love me the way he should
I got it bad and that ain't good!


New Agenda
Come On Back, Jack

When you told me you was through
And you told me to move on
I found a sweeter love than you
And it didn't take me long
No now baby please don't you do that to me
I need your crazy kisses so to rock me tenderly
Those nights without your love
They ain't worth thinking of


Jimmyboy
Exactly Like You

You make me feel so grand
I wanna give this world to you
You make me understand
These foolish little dreams I'm dreaming
And schemes I'm scheming
Now I know why my mama
She taught me to be true
She knew just around the corner
Was somebody like you


Bunifah
I Am Blessed

I who never had much I now have a treasure
A love too great to measure
I am blessed with happiness
And I'm done with loneliness
I who walked all alone not really knowing
Till now just where I was going
I am blessed because this day
You came show me the way


Tina
Either Way I Lose

Though I know, my love is true.
I'd die if you ever told me good-bye.
Ever told me good-bye.
And I know, she loves you too.
She would do, the same as I.
What difference does it make, which one I choose?
Either way I lose.


SuperG
Do What You Gotta Do

Now I know it'll make you feel sad
And make you feel so bad
They say you don't treat me me like you should
They got ways to make you feels no good
I guess they got no way to know
I've had my eyes wide open from the start
And man you never lied to me
The part of you that they'll never see
Is the part you've shown to me


Martin
Go To Hell

Now if your mind lies in the Devil's workshop
And evil duens your thrill
And trouble and mischief is all you live for
You know darn well
That you'll go to hell
So you're living high and mighty
Rich off the fat of the land
Just don't dispose of your natural soul
'cos you know darn well
That you'll go to hell


Sam
Here Comes The Sun

Little darlin' its been
A long cold lonely winter
Little darlin' it feels like
Years since you've been here
Here comes the sun
Aren't you glad to see it
I say, "It's all right"


and your host

jorge.
Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Ya know sometimes baby I'm so carefree
With a joy that's hard to hide
And then sometimes again it seems that all I have is worry
And then you're bound to see my other side
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Regrets collect like old friends / Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way / And all of the ghouls come out to play
And every demon wants his pound of flesh / But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong / It's always darkest before the dawn

All the videos are only a click away, so as not to go bog down the page (and because the CENTER tag doesn't center videos for some goddamn reason).

Enjoy!

I went for the non-obvious tracks, so y'all could dig deep into the amazing discography that is miss Simone.

I actually like her single. It's a filler album track that doesn't use her voice but it makes me think of summer.
