Magic In Tunes: 08/04/2015 – I Just Want To Make Love To You

The new Haagen-Dazs commercial introducing The Chocolate Collection had this sensual song as the background score. The singer’s voice was so captive I was enthralled by that than the icecream that was being shown. I had to find who it was and finally here is what I came across.

The original song was first recorded by Muddy Waters in 1954. However Haagen-Dazs used the Etta James’s version that was recorded in 1961 for her debut album At Last!. There are a few lyrical changes between both versions though. Now, the three songs in question. First up, the commercial by Haagen-Dazs that used this song:

Magic In Tunes: 08/05/2015 – It’s Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday

Just like the title of  the song tells its really hard to say goodbye to colleagues who become friends and eventually partial family of your day to day life. It was a happy occasion to bid farewell, but a sad moment that we will no longer see these both starting Monday. One is leaving behind memories of laughter and the other of making you feel protected and encouraged at the same time. Its good move for them though.

Aptly Sung by Boyz II Men in 1991, although the original version was Sung by Motown artist G. C. Cameron for the 1975 film Cooley High. Whatever the version the mood is the same. One of the hardest thing in life is to bid goodbye.



Lyrics in English:

How Do I Say Goodbye To What We Had?
The Good Times That Made Us Laugh
Outweigh The Bad.

I Thought We'd Get To See Forever
But Forever's Gone Away
It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday.

I Don't Know Where This Road
Is Going To Lead
All I Know Is Where We've Been
And What We've Been Through.

If We Get To See Tomorrow
I Hope It's Worth All The Wait
It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday.

And I'll Take With Me The Memories
To Be My Sunshine After The Rain
It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday.

And I'll Take With Me The Memories
To Be My Sunshine After The Rain
It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday.
