In today’s age of
love sex songs all it takes is coming up with the most vulgar and raunchy lyrics you can think of and radio will beat the listening audience into submission with it. But not too long ago we had a class of brothers that were making real music. These cool dudes were making classic cuts that will last for generations and generations. BMWK family we present to you five classic love songs that Trey Songz and these new dudes could never make! Check out our list and let us know what you think in the comments section.
Because I Love You – Lenny Williams
Let’s cut to the chase and just go hard straight out of the gate. You KNOW these new cats can’t make love music like this! Don’t even play. This song is regarded by some as the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time).
Some men need lots of women
For their passions to feel
But I want only you, girl
If it’s in, if it’s in, if it’s in God’s will
‘Cause I, ’cause I love you
Whew! I’m on to the next track. I dare you to go against me on this one.
I Miss You – Harold Melvin And The Bluenotes
Nowadays everybody gotta be a thug. These cats are singing I Miss You! Somebody out there has jacked up in their relationship and felt this pain before. You know it was you so stop playing LOL. He went out and even got a gig – a plain J-O-B eight hours a day all the overtime he can get.
Don’t do me like this, baby (Miss you, miss you)
Yeah, I’m on my knees, I’m begging you please
(Oh, I, Oh, I)
Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, I miss you, baby
These new dudes are too proud to beg in 2011 on a record. Mess around and you just might get your girl back with this song.
I’ll Write a Song For You – Earth, Wind & Fire
When a band has a singer that they call “The Voice” do I need to say anymore? Who could kill those notes like Phillip Bailey? I have to admit this is one of my favorite jams.
Love is a symphony, hearts in one melody
‘Cause I write a song for you
Sounds never dissipate, they only recreate
in another place
There in your silent night
joy of a song’s delight
I write a song for you
You write a song for me
We write a song for love
This song is amazing. When is the last time you said that about a new cut?
The Look of Love – Isaac Hayes
Two words: Black Moses
The look of love is in your eyes
The look your heart can’t disguise
The look of love is saying so much more
Than words could ever say, yeah
I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know – Donny Hathaway
Donny Hathaway was an amazing talent and this is just more proof of that.
When I Wasn’t Making Much Money
You Know Where My Paycheck Went
You Know I Brought It Home To Baby
And I Never Spent A Red Cent
This is rhythm and blues. You can feel the soul in this song. I’m not feeling soul from any of these new school cats with the exception of a few like Anthony Hamilton, Musiq etc…
