Al Jarreau: All Or Nothing At All

Con una voz versatil y original, Al Jarreau se desenvuelve con soltura por la música y las décadas. Ha conseguido 6 Grammys en estilos tan diversos como el jazz, RnB o pop y en 4 décadas diferentes.
Los ochenta fueron su época dorada, con éxitos tanto en discos propios como en tv, muchos recordareís la famosa sintonía de la serie Luz de Luna (Moonlighting). Criticado por los más puristas del jazz por sus devaneos con la comercialidad, la realidad es que este virtuoso de la voz, nos ha deleitado con hermosas canciones como "All Or Nothing At All". Era el año 1988 y la encontrábamos en su álbum Heart's Horizon. El tema lo compuso otro gran artista, el cantante muti-instrumentista y compositor Bobby Caldwell, que supo ver esa facilidad con la que Al Jarreau conseguía conjugar géneros, comercialidad y calidad.

Letra
Everyday we go through
I do something that'll please you baby
And I know having you around
Well, just keeps me grounded
If I get jealous,If I act like a fool
It's an overreaction to loving you

I want it all or nothing at all
That's what I need from you
And baby it's true
I'll be there whenever you call
But I need all or nothing at all

All other men try for you
They won't give you what I do now, baby
I won't share
I want you to myself
So I'll keep trying
Gonna make my lovin' the best it can be
'Cause I need your devotion desparately

I want it all or nothing at all
That's what I need from you
And baby it's true
I'll be there whenever you call
But I need all or nothing at all

Just tell me now that there's no other man
'Cause I don't want my heart broken up again
And when you say that you'll never let go
Only then will I know

I'll be there whenever you call
But I need all or nothing at all
Lay your love on the line
Right now
I need you to
Lay your love on the line,baby
I'll be there whenever you call
But I need all or nothing at all.

I want it all or nothing at all
That's what I need from you
And baby it's true
I'll be there whenever you call
But I need all or nothing at all

I want it all or nothing at all
That's what I need from you
And baby it's true
I'll be there whenever you call
But I need all or nothing at all
