…and I want to love you more.
This is a really sweet song.
Those that follow me on twitter may have peeped my elated joy listening to Faith Evans’ self titled debut CD a couple nights ago. I made it my night time ritual soundtrack. I don’t know if many other people do this, but I like to listen to music while I bathe. I know a lot of people play music while getting dressed/getting ready to go out, but just to get ready to go to bed? yea, I do that too. lol. Since I have an iHome, I turn the music up and leave the bathroom door open to sing along while I pin curl my hair, shower or bath, then get out brush my teeth and all the other necessary things you do. Depending on the tunes, its very relaxing. And also might encourage sweet dreams 😉
“Sitting in here thinking about you
And all the joy you bring oh baby
I just can’t live without you
Cause your love means everything…”
My iPod is always on shuffle, so even when I sort for a particular album or artist, it doesn’t play the songs in track order. I don’t like many surprises, but I do enjoy not knowing what song is gonna play next for some reason. So while my ears may have been “ready” to hear “No Other Love” that isn’t what I got. About 8 songs in I found myself wanting to hear this song in particular. I could no longer just wait and be surprised, I had to find it, and play it. It makes me think of my sis Tisha, and our previous convos about those “rain drops”–you gotta admit that is A HOT sound effect. It totally adds to the smooth vibe of the song.
“When I can’t seem to find my way
You brighten up my darkest day
The reason to love you more…”
When this album came out I can’t say this song was one of my favorites, but in recent years it has grown to be.
Faith is an example to me of one that flows beautifully from beginning to end, and even when I don’t listen in order, I have such an affinity for each song, I don’t mind how its played. “Reasons” is listed as a bonus track and I’m glad it was included! You know, sometimes I listen to this album and I think its a top contender against its “rival” of sorts, My Life. I know that album is a certified R&B classic and I’m just saying Faith is as well. To me. Production wise, Faith’s debut is definitely better than Mary’s, IMO. However there is no comparison on who has (had?) the better career, but we gotta give credit where its due to Ms. Evans for her contributions via background vocals, and songwriting.
I love all of the songs but I gotta say my favorite on the album and of all time by Faith is “Soon As I Get Home.” Peep the video below.
