Radio XXXII, side A, track 8: “Facts Of Love” by Karyn White and Jeff Lorber

Facts Of Love - Karyn White and Jeff LorberOh, Karyn White and Jeff Lorber, I’m just gonna say, thank goodness for Karyn White, right?  No offense, Jeff Lorber, but when I hear “modern jazz”, I think of Kenny G and gentle rain and other things that put me to sleep.  And listening to this song, imagining that Karyn isn’t providing her vocals, I can’t imagine that I’d have stuck around to listen to the whole thing.  But thankfully, Karyn White and Jeff Lorber, Karyn is most definitely singing some vocals along with some fairly generic synth-piano, and it’s that singing that we paid the price of admission for.  Had I paid admission.  Which I hadn’t.  Though I did shell out the money for the cassette that was recording this particular tune.  Well, maybe my mom did.  You get the idea, Karyn White and Jeff Lorber.

And the DJ said that you were pretty new to the whole scene, Karyn White.  Comparatively speaking, but so far on the Now and Then Weekend most of the other artists had been around for at least a decade.  Here you were, only 3 years after your first big break and you were being featured as a hot new pop act.  Pretty impressive.  And no surprise, because you have a beautiful voice and I’ll just say what we’re all thinking, you’re sexy as hell.  When you’re singing “More. . .than temporary passion” at the end in that breathy sexy voice. . .well, let’s just say that I suddenly understood the facts of love, and the fact was, I loved you, Karyn White.

“Facts Of Love”

<awesome Karyn White and Jeff Lorber jam>

These are the facts of love

You heard about my reputation

You might think that I’m as cold as ice

If you know the secret
I’m not so hard ta satisfyyyy

I’ll accept no imitations

Men who play the game with foolish lies

They’re a dime a dozen
I’ve got somethin’ else in mind

Ohhh oooooo

I need more
Than empty conversation
Only takes me half the waaaay

These are the facts of love
Don’t waste my time on temporary passion

These are the facts of love
I need more than ordinary satisfaction
Uhh oooo

<awesome Karyn White and Jeff Lorber jam>

I don’t want another half-way lover

I’ve played the game so many times before
I open up my heart
And love goes walking out
My dooooor

Ooooo

I need more
Than empty conversation
Only takes me half the waaaay

These are the facts of love
Don’t waste my time on temporary passion

These are the facts of love
I need more than ordinary satisfaction

Ooo ooo ooo
These are the facts of love
Ohhh don’t waste my time
Ohh baby

I need more
Than temporary passion (these are the facts of love)

I’ve played the game so many times before
Ooooooo

I need more
Than empty conversation
Only takes me half the waaaaay

More
Than temporary passion

I need more
Than imitation love

<awesome Karyn White and Jeff Lorber jam>

These are the facts of love

No imitation loooove, oh oh oh oh

These are the facts of love
I need more
I need more
Than just a half-way love

These are the facts of love
