Aaron Neville: Tell It Like It Is

Me es imposible escuchar a este hombre y no sentirme atrapado por su sinuoso y sensual timbre vocal. Su nombre es Aaron Neville y por sus venas corre sangre africana y nativa americana. Bien junto a sus hermanos -The Neville Brothers- o en solitario, su rudeza física se transforma en alma delicada y sensible a traves de hermosas melodías como este tema titulado "Tell It Like It Is". Su debut en 1966 y todo un número uno en las listas de RnB, el video cuenta con músicos de la talla de David Sanborn, Hiram Bullock y Marcus Miller, un lujo para los oidos.

If you want something to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
Baby, my time is too expensive
And I'm not a little boy

If you are serious
Don't play with my heart, it makes me furious
But if want me to love you
Then, baby, I will, girl, you know I will

Tell it like it is
Don't be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
But I-I-I-I-I know deep down inside of me
I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride

Life is too short to have sorrow
You may be here today and gone tomorrow
You might as well get what you want
So go on and live, baby, go on and live

Tell it like it is
I'm nothin' to play with, go and find yourself a toy
But I-I-I-I-I
Tell it like it is
My time is too expensive
And I'm not your little boy

Mm mm, tell it like it is
