Alannah Myles - Black Velvet

Ojazos los de esta canadiense que triunfo con este tema en 1990, aunque el disco fue publicado en 1989 (los ochenta, jejejeje).

Creo que como pasa con alguna otra canción de este blog y como muchos otros artistas, pasó a la historia por esta canción y nadie recuerda otras de ella. Pero, por eso no deja ser merecedora de estar aquí. Me gusta y os gusta. Baladita al viejo estilo. Degustadla.



"Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell

Mama's dancin' with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky

Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Up in Memphis the music's like a heatwave
White lightning, bound to drive you wild
Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl
"Love me tender" leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could
you do?

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your"
