Soul UK - Part 2
When You Gonna Learn
Originally released by Jamiroquai 1992 - UK #28 from album 'Emergency On Planet Earth' - UK #1
I remember hunting this record down while I was doing my degree and on finding it, I was shocked to find it was not a rare groove, or from the States but new and British. The lyrics were so far ahead of their time, and Jay's words still ring true today. This was their first single, it gave them acclaim and set them on the path to global success.
Originally released by Young Disciples 1991 - UK #13 from album 'The Road To Freedom' - UK #21
This was one of those moments when the clubs successfully educated radio on what they should be championing, and the public "got" it, and it was a smash. I was one of that buying public. Lyrically this is sheer brilliance and relevant for every generation. Roots Manuva's additional verse just adds even more weight to the message of the song.
There's Nothing Like This
Originally released by Omar 1991- UK #14 from album 'There's Nothing Like This' - UK #19
If you ask anyone involved in the soul genre, they will mention Omar as an influence. Seriously underrated, massively influential worldwide, he pioneered the neo-soul that made Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, D'Angelo and Common successful.
Don't Be A Fool
Originally released by Loose Ends 1990 - UK #12 / US R&B #10 from album 'Look How Long' - UK #19 / US R&B #28
Like Soul II Soul,Loose Ends'massive influence on the sound of Britain cannot be ignored. This was another pirate radio smash, played to death in my bedroom with a punchy direct message. I especially loved the line "sort your life out", spoken in the original version. I sang it in mine, it would have sound daft if I had tried to do the same!
Always and Forever
Originally released by Heatwave 1977 - UK #9 / US #18 / US R&B #2 from album 'Too Hot To Handle' - UK #46 / US #11 / US R&B #5
One of the greatest love songs ever written, by one of the greatest and most successful songwriters of all time. Rod Temperton is a British phenomenon and although it has been done before, I really wanted to sing this.
