“Wild Is Love” by Nat King Cole

NAT KING COLE е сред най-популярните и преуспели певци през 40-те и 50-те години на миналия век. Джаз пианист, композитор и певец, той е обичан от широк кръг слушатели заради мекия му копринен глас. Броят на продадените му плочи надхвърля 29 милиона, а той регистрира участие в 28 игрални филма.

През 1954 г. NAT става първият афроамериканец със собствено телевизионно шоу (по NBC), не след дълго се решава да направи първите си изяви и на Broadway с мюзикъла „I m With You“ („Аз съм с теб“), чиято телевизионна версия “Wild Is Love” по CBC има преди това премиера в Канада през 1961 г.

 

В основата и на мюзикъла, и на филма е музиката от албума “WILD IS LOVE“ („ДИВА Е ЛЮБОВТА“) през 1960 г., издаден в навечерието на сексуалната революция и замислен от NAT KING COLE като концептуално произведение.

 

Текстовете разказват историята на един мъж в търсенето на романтичната любов – неговите вълнения и разочарования, радости и скърби – съпроводено от безцеремонно акцентиране върху плътската похот и крайния цинизъм, които биха били напълно недопустими само няколко години по-рано.

 

NAT пее, измисля речитативи между отделните композиции, прави съпровождащата книжка и кани за съвместна работа RAY RASCH и DOTTY WAYNE, които съчиняват песните; диригента NELSON RIDDLE и неговия оркестър с хор, както и RALPH CARMICHAEL с аранжиментите за струнната секция, за се получи един най-успешните им проекти. Години по-късно NAT твърди: „Това беше най-голямата ми тръпка при записването на плочи в цялата ми кариера“.

 

Албума “WILD IS LOVE“ или „ДИВА Е ЛЮБОВТА“ ще чуем в предаването “Картини от една изложба” на програма “Хоризонт” на БНР в събота, 12 август, след новините от 21.00 ч.

LYRICS:
Wild Is Love 
(Chorus sings:)Wild is love!Wild is love!Wild-wild-wildIs love!
(Nat s spoken words:)As a rule, man s a fool.When it s hot, he wants it cool.When it s cool, he wants it hot.Always wantingWhat is not.
(Nat Sings:)Wild is loveWhenever two hearts meet,Wild is love,Bitter, but oh so sweet.
And I knowI must goWherever love takes me,Whatever love makes me,I will be!
Like a fireBurning beyond control,Wild is loveDeep in my heart and soul
And though wild as the windAnd wild as the rolling sea,Nothing could ever beAs wild as love.
~interlude~
And I knowI must goWherever love takes me,Whatever love makes me,I will be!
~interlude~
And though wild is the windAnd wild is the rolling sea,Nothing could ever beAs wild as love...As wild as love...As wild as love...As wild is love!

 

Hundreds and Thousands of Girls
Someone told me that I had cool clothesAnd that my fashion sense was on the spotWell I ll tell you this I owe it all toLive journal and the indie rockobot.Please pretend to listen to all the bands you likeStop paying so much attention to all the merchandiseThis isn t rock, it makes me so sickI will never pretend to be a part of thisThey told me that black shirts and pants were okaySo now you ll see me down at the Art District everydayFlaunting my cool clothes I bought at all the mallsAnd the hot topic, sitting outsideLooking for people to look at meLike I m so cool for wearing what I m wearingYou ll pay attention to anything.Please pretend to listen to all the bands you likeStop paying so much attention to all the merchandiseThis isn t rock, it makes me so sickI will never pretend to be a part of this.I will never understand why you think You re so cool for being a part of this lame fashion.

 

It s A Beautiful Evening
And so it begins but you can t have them all. Your heart has to settle down somewhere And sure enough one night it happens. 
The crickets, the mockingbirds, The perfume in the air, it s all there. You get the feeling mother nature is working overtime And you say to yourself this is it. 
It s a beautiful evening, what a beautiful evening, It s a beautiful evening for falling in love. The moon winked his eye, The stars agree that this is the night for you and me.
And as soft as a willow every cloud is our pillow And all heaven and earth know what we re thinking of And darling they re so right so kiss and hold me tight, It s a beautiful evening for falling in love. 
And darling they re so right so kiss and hold me tight, It s a beautiful evening for falling in love.

 

Tell Her In The Morning
[spoken]Funny how the moon is around whenever love appears,but when the stars go to sleep and the moon fades out of sight,then what happens?
[sung]Last night I kissed her,I kissed my baby,And held her in the moonlight,I said I loved herAnd promised we would never part.My baby told meIt was the moonlightThat made me say I loved her,She said the moonlightHad hypnotised my faithful heart!
She said, \"Tell me in the mornin What you tell me tonight! \",She said, \"Tell me in the mornin When the sun is shinin bright! \".
I gotta wind up the old alarm clock,I gotta meet my baby,I gotta meet her before it s dark!
She said, \"Tell me in the mornin What you tell me tonight! \",She said, \"Tell me in the mornin When the sun is shinin bright! \".
I gotta wind up the old alarm clock,I gotta meet my baby,I gotta meet her before it s dark!I m gonna kiss herTill I convince herThat she s the only love of my life!I m gonna tell her in the mornin What I told my baby last night!

 

Are You Disenchanted?
[spoken]Didn t get much sleep last night,and it wasn t easy getting up early,but it was worth it, cause sure enough she was waiting.We talked of many things and discovered we had much in common;She loved books, good paintings and jazz.But there was one hitch, she loved somebody else, and that s how it goes!
[sung]Are you disenchanted, disenchanted with life?Can you find the rainbow you are always dreaming of?Why doesn t love appear, or do you supposeLove is right here under your nose?
Are you disenchanted, is your heart out of touch?Are you, chance is maybe, chasing rainbows too much?Open your eyes and you ll find the way,And love will enchant you someday!
Open your eyes and you ll find the way,And love will enchant you someday!

 

Pick-up
Lass, love will find you some dayBut why sit around and wait?Who knows…This could be the night...
So make a scene!Get out on that boulevard and cruise
Hey, baby, can I give you a ride?Hey, baby, come and sit by my side
I’ve got a tank full of gas I’ve got nothing to doFor a block and a halfI’ve been following you
Hey, baby, can I give you a ride?
I’ve got the wheels, rest up your heelsYou name the place, you make the deals
Hey, baby, won’t you tell me your name?Hey, baby, look! It’s starting to rain!
Won’t you swallow your prideAnd get out of that stormCome and sit by my sideWhere it’s cosy and warm
Hey, baby, can I give you a ride?
Gee, when you’re mad you’re such a dollWhat do you say? Let’s have a ball!
What do you mean I’m not your type?I guess this ain’t my lucky night
Hey, baby, can I give you a ride?Hey, baby, can I give you a ride?Hey, babyCome on, babyHey, baby, can I give you a ride?Come on, babyCome on…Well, I tried…C’est la vie

 

Beggar for the Blues
When love smiles at me, I just can t refuse,Don t care if I cry till the tears run down my shoes.I ask for it every time, Cause I m a beggar for the blues!
When love pulls me in like an undertow,If I gotta die, that s the way I wanna go.Don t care if I win or lose, Cause I m a beggar for the blues!
I d say goodbye,But then I ask myself what for,I know that IWould only hurry back for more!
I know I m a fool, got no alibis,My heart s been to school but I never will get wise.I live in the way that I choose, Cause I m a beggar for the blues!
I know I m a fool, got no alibis,My heart s been to school but I never will get wise.I live in the way that I choose, Cause I m a beggar for the blues,I live in the way that I choose, Cause I m a beggar for the blues!

 

World of no Return
I reach for you and I touch the sky,I kiss your lips and a star goes by,And when I hold you it s all clearI am in heaven when you are near!
You are an angel, what can I do?I ll never leave you my whole life through.I m in a world of no return,And there s no return from you!
I m in a world of no return,And there s no return from you!

 

In Love Again
Fool, you are in love again,Fool, you ve lost your heart again.True, she is beautiful, but so were all the rest!Is this just another test?
And how long will you pretend,Will you ever really know?When and where will all this end?Just who do you think you are,And what are you looking for?How many times, how many more?
Fool, you tumble much too fast,Fool, you know that it won t last!Why, why not face it, my friend?You re a fool in love again!

 

Stay with it
But you can’t stop nowWho you kiddin’May as well live it upLive it up‘Course you know you can’t give it up
Pray for itSay “hooray” for itBut just stay with itCause there’s nothing like loveClown with it it
If you drown with itJust go down with it‘Cause, brother, that’s loveBoast of it
Make the most of itDrink a toast to itYou can bet that for sureYou will never give it upThere’s no cure, so live it up
Make hay with itNight and day with itJust move your heart right in and stay with loveClown with it itIf you drown with itJust go down with it‘Cause, brother, that’s loveBoast of itMake the most of itDrink a toast to it
You can bet that for sureYou will never give it upThere’s no cure, so live it upMake hay with itNight and day with it
Just move your heart right in Just move your heart right inJust move your heart right inAnd stay with love

 

Wouldn’t you know
Havin’ a ball?Sure you are..And just when you’re ready to ditch it allYou’re through lookingYou’re through caringYou’re through dreamingYou’ve had it
And one day out of left field…There she is!
You’ve found her at lastWouldn’t you know…Her name is Mary…Her name is Mary…Wouldn’t you know…Couldn’t you tellWhen I first saw herThat I’d adore herWouldn’t you know…Would you ever believe
That I’d fall for her turned up noseAnd those sunset eyesFor a guy who’s wiseWouldn’t you know…That she’d amaze me
She kisses like crazyAnd I love her soHer name is Mary…Wouldn’t you know…Her name is Mary…Wouldn’t you know…

 

He Who Hesitates


He who hesitates 

When it comes to love

He will never know 

The wonder of it all.A kiss -- a sigh, 

You`ll never knowIf you don`t try.

He who hesitatesWhen her eyes say yes,

Just how much you`ve missedYou will never guess.

Your chanceGoes by

And it`s too lateTo wonder why.

Dreams cannot replaceThe wonder of her smile.

The warmth of her embrace,

Don`t let it Escape you.

When you fall in love

And you feel the glow,

Take her in your arms

Never let her go.

Don`t beThe one

To hesitate with love.

interludeA kiss -- a smile

You`ll never knowIf you don`t try.

When you fall in loveAnd you feel the glow,

Take her in your arms 

Never let her go.

Don`t be The oneTo hesitate...

Don`t be The one

Who hesitates...

Don`t beThe one

Who hesitates...

With love.

 

Wild Is Love Finale


Wild is love!

Wild is love!

Wild-wild-wildIs love!

As a rule, man s a fool.

When it s hot, he wants it cool.

When it s cool, he wants it hot.

Always wanting

What is not.

Wild is love

Whenever two hearts meet,

Wild is love,

Bitter, but oh so sweet.

And I knowI must go

Wherever love takes me,

Whatever love makes me,

I will be!

Like a fire

Burning beyond control,

Wild is love

Deep in my heart and soul

And though wild as the wind

And wild as the rolling sea,

Nothing could ever be

As wild as love.

And I knowI must go

Wherever love takes me,

Whatever love makes me,

I will be!

And though wild is the wind

And wild is the rolling sea,

Nothing could ever be

As wild as love...

As wild as love...

As wild as love...

As wild is love!
