This one I love as an artist.
The ability to look at something on a sheet of paper and then regurgitate it back out; the mechanical part can more or less be taught to anyone.
But to emotionally draw you in and make it feel so personal and immediate? We all love that in different ways.
I’m not the first to say this was one of Luther’s strengths; this is one of many songs where it really feels like he’s singing to someone specific.
(I’ll let others get into ‘who’ he was singing to…)
