The Spinners: It's A Shame

Ellos se formaron en 1955, pero su verdadera andadura musical fue a comienzos de los años 60 en su ciudad de Detroit, pudiéndoseles ver todavía hoy en dia -con algunos cambios respecto a su formación inicial- realizando conciertos por cualquier parte del mundo. Ellos son The Spinners, elegantes en sus formas y pletóricos en sus voces. Les costó alcanzar el lugar que merecían, de hecho su esplendor llegó en los años 70, una vez abandonaron la Motown y firmaron por Atlantic, alcanzando varios números uno y redefiniendo el sonido soul de aquellos años.

Poco antes de abandonar la Motown, lograron alcanzar su mayor éxito en esa compañía. Se trataba de una canción de ritmo templado, coros envolventes y unos arreglos refinados, que con la espectacular voz de G.C. Cameron, mostraban la majestuosidad y el despertar a un futuro prometedor. La canción era "It's A Shame", un regalo en su composición y producción de un buen amigo del grupo, el mágico Stevie Wonder.


Letra
It's a shame, the way you mess around with your man
It's a shame the way you hurt me
It's a shame, the way you mess around with your man
I'm sitting all alone, by the telephone
Waiting for your call, when you don't call at all

It's a shame (shame) the way you mess around with your man
It's a shame (shame) the way you play with my emotions
It's a shame (shame) the way you mess around with your man
You're like a child at play, on a sunny day
But you play with love, and then you throw it away

Why do you use me, try to confuse me
How can you stand, to be so cruel
Why don't you free me, from this prison
Where I serve my time as your fool

It's a shame (shame) the way you mess around with your man
It's a shame (shame) the way you hurt me
It's a shame (shame) the way you mess around with your man
I try to stay with you, show you love so true
But you won't appreciate, the love we try to make

Oh, it's got to be a shame

Why do you use me, try to confuse me
How can you stand, to be so cruel
Why don't you free me, from this prison
Where I serve my time as your fool

Got to be a shame (shame) the way you mess around with your man
Ohhh, it's a shame (shame) the way you hurt me
It's a shame (shame) the way you mess around with your man
You've got my heart in chains, and I must complain
I just can't be content, oh look at (muttering)

Got to, got to, be a shame
