Le moment Old-School #18 : Curtis Mayfield – Blue Monday People

Curtis Mayfield

C’est à la fin des années 50 que débute sa carrière au sein du groupe The Impressions avec plusieurs jolis succès à l’époque (par exemple).

C’est en 1970 qu’il se lance en solo avec la réussite que l’on connait.

Le titre d’aujourd’hui est sorti en 1975 sur l’album « There’s No Place Like America Today« . Blue monday People n’est clairement pas son morceau le plus connu (des titres comme Pusherman ou Move On Up ont eu des succès beaucoup plus larges) mais il n’en reste pas moins d’une finesse et d’une qualité rare.

Sit back and enjoy.

Les paroles dans la suite…


Some people feel so empty
All their problems and hurt of pride
You make me so happy sweet baby
Love is by my side
Waking up now in the morning
A little warm inside
We’re ready now to get it together
We know temptation don’t tell the whole story
But you and me baby, we have taken inventory
We Blue Monday People
And I know there’s a few
I don’t know your problems
Only you know how to solve them
When seasons are strong
Sometimes your life don’t get along
When cupboards are bare
Our love we can share
Oh! My song, oh! My song
Truth is not the whole question
What is the answer you hide
The system needs us, but it’s trying to mislead us
They know this money don’t feed us
Depression ain’t just quite what you promised
What you missed to be honest
Acting like s child, sometimes we get wild
Right when the loving is strong, we don’t want to get along
Don’t have to listen to me, one day you may see
Blue Monday People, we Blue Monday People
Just trying in a strain
like breaking our hearts
I’m so tired it’s a shame
This hustling affair
Ain’t the way I even care
We’II be together in spite of the crimes of the night
Crimes of the night, crimes of the night
Need someone to see me through
Need someone to comfort me
Sometimes you can let me be
just let me be
Depression ain’t just quite what you promised
What you missed to be honest
Acting like a child, sometimes we get wild
Right when the loving is strong, we don’t want to get along
Don’t have to listen to me, one day you may see
We Blue Monday People
And I know there’s a few
I don’t know your problems
Onfy you know how to salve them
When seasons sre strong
Sometimes your life don’t get along
when cupboards are bare
Our love we can share
