Jodeci: Cherish

Eran los comienzos de los años 90, y surgió una de esas típicas bandas de chicos que por esos años fusionaban el RandB con el soul y el hip-hop. Ellos destacaban de manera notable gracias a sus múltiples y siempre bien acompasados acompañamientos vocales. Su nombre era Jodeci, formado por la combinación de los nombres de los cuatro miembros del grupo; los hermanos Cedric y Joel Hailey, y los hermanos Donald  y Dalvin DeGrate. Influenciados por artistas como Guy -en especial Teddy Riley- New Edition, o Stevie Wonder, apostaron por una imagen de chicos malos enfrentándose de esa manera a otra banda de gran éxito en aquellos momentos, Boyz II Men, empleando gran fuerza y ritmo para ocupar un espacio natural que con descaro se consideran dueños.
Dentro de su álbum de debut -con el cual obtuvieron varios discos de platino y situar varias canciones en lo más alto de las listas mundiales- resalto Cherish. Una canción escrita por Terry Kirkman en 1966, y que Jodeci versionó dándole su toque personal. La canción también formó parte de la banda sonora de una de esas películas dificiles de olvidar por su encanto y ternura, Tomates Verdes Fritos.

Letra

Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Cherish is the word
I use to describe
All the feelings that I have
Hiding here for you inside
Hey-hey-hey-hey
You don't know how many times I wish that I had told you
You don't know how many times I wish that I had held you, yeah
You don't know how many times I wish I could mold you into someone

Cherish me as much as i
(Who could cherish me)
As much as i
Cherish you
As much as I cherish you

Cherish is the word
That more than applies
Ooh, oh
There's a hole in my heart
Each time I realize, yeah
That I am not gonna be the one to share your dreams
That I am not gonna be the one to share your schemes
I am not gonna be the one share

Cherish me as much as i
Every night and day with you baby
Cherish you

Oooh, oh, oh
Ooh, oh, oh
Ooh, oh, oh
Cherish, Cherish, Cherish, Cherish, Cherish, Cherish
Cherish, Cherish, Cherish, Cherish, Cherish, Cherish
Cherish, Cherish, Cherish, Cherish, Cherish
You don't know how many times I wish I had told ya
You don't know how many times I wish I had held you
You don't know how many times
I wish I could mold you into someone

Cherish me as much as i
Cherish you
Cherish me as much as I cherish you

Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Cherish, Cherish
Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Cherish, Cherish
Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Cherish, Cherish
Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Cherish, Cherish
Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Cherish, Cherish
Doo-doo-doo-doo-do-doo
Cherish
