Shalamar: The Second Time Around

Descubiertos por Dick Geffrey, promotor e integrante del famoso programa de televisión Soul Train, y Simon Soussan, productor del tambien famoso programa de tv British R&B, surgen Shalamar como uno de los grupos más representativos de la música soul/disco de los años 70. Bases de música funky, soul-pop y dance, con la única finalidad de entretener y hacernos mover de forma natural con temas como "There It Is", "A Night to Remember" o "The Second Time Around". Una de sus más exitosas canciones -perteneciente a su álbum Big Fun de 1979- que nos hace retroceder al fulgor del mejor sonido disco y de paso contemplar los inicios de Jody Watley, Jeffrey Daniels y Howard Hewett.

Ellos son parte fundamental del éxito, dotando al grupo de la calidad vocal y de un rítmo que pigmentan la música con brillo y color, consiguiendo que su música no sólo se escuchase en las emisoras de radio de más rabiosa actualidad, sino en las pistas de baile de medio mundo.

Letra
I know you come a long way, baby
But you don't need that heart of stone, no
You proved that you could do it, do it, baby
You could make it on your own

But you can't keep runnin' away from love
'Cause the first one let you down, no, no, no
And though others try to satisfy you, baby
With me true love can still be found
Love can still be found

(The second time around)
Ooh, the second time is so much better, baby
(The second time around)
And I'll make it better than the first time

You know I really love you
And I paid for my mistakes, yes, I did, girl
The more I try to hide my feelings, baby
This old heart gets in the way
And love won't let me wait

(The second time around)
Girl, with me it's better than the first time
(The second time around)
Let's do it one more time, say it again

Say it again
(The second time around)
All that I've been through
I'll do it again just as long as I'm with you
(The second time around)
Haaaaaa, the second time
Haaaa-uh

I'll make it so good to you, babe
I make it so good to you

Not like the first time
(Not like the first time)
Not like the first time
(Not like the first time)
Not like the first time
Talking 'bout the second time

Not like the first time
(Not like the first time)
Not like the first time
(Not like the first time)
Not like the first time
Talking 'bout the second time

You can't keep runnin' away from love
'Cause the first one let you down
And though others try to satisfy you, baby
With me true love can still be found

(The second time around)
I'm gonna keep you mine the second time, baby
(The second time around)
I'll know what to do
Just as long as I'm with you

(The second time around)
Do it one more time, say it again
The second time around

Tema con calidad..." disco ".
Fantástico Howard Hewett apuntando maneras. Lástima que ni él ni Jody Watley llegaran a lo más alto a pesar de que con el album "It´s Time" Howard rozara la perfección.
Saludos.

Si, una pena que no alcanzaran el lugar que merecían. Ambos tienen ese "algo especial" que enriquecen la música.
Saludos
