Monday Music Quote: Kenny and Luther


Monday Music Quote: Piano Diana Blog

Don't be afraid to give up the good for the great.
Kenny Rogers 

I'd like to be remembered as a premier singer of songs, not just a popular act of a given period.
Luther Vandross


Buy Me A Rose

Verse 1:
D                A               G                  A
He works hard to give her all he thinks she wants
D                 A               G            A
Three car garage, her own credit cards
   G                A           D               G
He pulls in late to wake her up with a kiss goodnight
G                D                   A
If he could only read her mind she'd say


Chorus:
A        D                  Bm
Buy me a rose, call me from work
       G                         A
Open a door for me what would it hurt
            D                            G
Show me you love me by that look in your eye
D                    A                            D
These are the little things I need the most in my life


Verse 2:
D                A               G                  A
Now the days have grown to years of feeling all alone
D                 A               G            A
She can't help but wonder what she's doing wrong
   G                A           D               G
Lately she'd try anything to turn his head
G                D                   A
Would it make a difference if she'd said

Chorus

Bridge/Verse 3:
        G                       A 	 
And the more that he lives, the less that he tries
   G                      A
To show her the love that he holds inside
        G                        A
And the more that she gives, the more that he sees
G                          A
This is a story of you and me
     A            D                         Bm
So I bought you a rose on the way home from work
            G                      A
To open the door to a heart that I hurt
               D                       G 
And I hope you noticed this look in my eye
D                           A                          D
Cause I'm gonna make things right for the rest of your life
D                A
The rest of your life
    G
And I'm gonna hold you tonight
D                    A                           D
Do all those little things for the rest of your life

Monday Music Quote: David Lanz



"The piano is a divinely inspired instrument, a mirror held up to its player's soul that captures the light and shadow of the performer and reflects them back to the listener."



The Good Life by David Lantz was written in 2004. It has a sixteenth-note shuffle rhythm style. Here are some of the chords that I was able to pick up but not the high melody notes.

Monday Music Quote: Billie Holiday


"You can't copy anybody and end with anything. If you copy, it means you're working without any real feeling."
Billie Holiday  



Billie Holiday - Ain't Misbehavin' (1955)



Are you a Billie Holiday fan? "Ain't Misbehavin'" is a 1929 song written by Thomas "Fats" Waller.

E7         C#m7    F#m7      B7
No one to talk to, all by myself;

E7         Ab7            A7   Am     Am7
No one to walk with, I'm happy on the shelf;

E7         C#m7   F#m7           B7          E    C#m7   F#7    B7
Ain't misbehavin,     I'm saving my love for you.


E7           C#m7     F#m7           B7
Now it's for certain,     the one I love;

E7                Ab7           A7           Am      Am7
I'm through with flirtin' it's just you I'm thinkin' of.

E7        C#m7  F#m7            B7          E    A7   B7   Ab7
Ain't misbehavin,   I'm saving my love for you.


Bridge:

C#m7                 A7
    Like Jack Horner,   in the corner,

F#7                       C#7
    Don't go no where -- what do I care?

F#7         C#m7      F#7     B7       C   B7
Your kisses are worth waiting for, believe me.


E7            C#m7      F#m7         B7
I don't stay out late, don't care to go;

E7         Ab7             A7        Am   Am7
I'm home about eight, just me and my rad-I-o.

E7         C#m7    F#m7          B7           E   A   Am7   E   B7   E6
Ain't misbehavin',    I'm savin' my love for you.

I play this song, Ain't Misbehavin' in the Key of Eb. Here's the chord chart. I'm just lowering the chords one half step.



Eb         Cm7    Fm7      Bb9
No one to talk to, all by myself;

Eb         G7+5            Ab   Abm     Ddim
No one to walk with, I'm happy on the shelf;

Eb         Gb7   Fm7           Bb9          Eb    Edim   F7    Bb7
Ain't misbehavin,     I'm saving my love for you.


Eb           Cm7     Fm7           Bb9
Now it's for certain,     the one I love;

Eb                G7+5           Ab           Abm      Ddim
I'm through with flirtin' it's just you I'm thinkin' of.

Eb        Gb7  Fm7            Bb9          Eb    Ab   Bb7   G7
Ain't misbehavin,   I'm saving my love for you.


Bridge:

Cm                 Ab7/C
    Like Jack Horner,   in the corner,

F7/C                       C7
    Don't go no where -- what do I care?

Bb         Cm      F7     Bb7       C7  F7 Bb7
Your kisses are worth waiting for, believe me.


Eb            Cm7      Fm7         Bb9
I don't stay out late, don't care to go;

Eb         G7+5             Ab        Abm   Ddim
I'm home about eight, just me and my rad-I-o.

Eb         Gb7    Fm7          Bb9           Eb      Bb7   Eb
Ain't misbehavin',    I'm savin' my love for you.
