Song of the Day #2,244: ‘Whirlpool’ – Seal

sealMy general ambivalence to R&B and soul music has kept me from really appreciating Seal, though I generally like what I hear.

I find ‘Kiss From a Rose’ and ‘Crazy,’ his best-known songs, excellent, but I’ve never been moved to listen to the rest of those albums, let alone seek out the other half-dozen records he’s released since.

So we’ll have to make do with today’s Random Weekend selection, ‘Whirlpool,’ from Seal’s debut album. Nice sound. I’ll likely never listen to it again.

She don’t know woo-who
Yo’ momma would-oh
Yeah ooh no no
Only child know
Only child
I wake out of a whirlpool
I walk into another day and then
I feel better
Whoa Whoa
Because you came to stay
I almost threw my life away
Thinking of what might be
If I lose
My destiny
Would I feel better than I might be
Would I see clearer than my eyes would see

Oh I if I showed I love you angel
Like a square in a circle
I try to find another way to win
I try to make better way
To the castle that I make
Where the moon lights the way
And it’s invisible by day
I hear temptation sing yeah!
Just let go and I will take you there
Now would I feel better than I might be
Would I see clearer than my eyes would see yeah
Oh I If I showed I love you angel yeah
If I fell in love with angel
If I showed I love you angel
Now would I feel better than I might be
Would I see clearer than my eyes would see yeah
Oh I If I showed I love you angel
If I took a piece of angel
If I fell in love with angel
Life is hard in a circle
Especially when you think you’ve gone insane
And all you get from love is lots of pain
I should have known better
Better
Better

    I haven’t played this album for a long time, but I really liked it back in the day. His sound is more distinct and ethereal than most r&b artists.

    He’s no BB King, have you ever featured King on the blog?

    I love Seal’s voice whenever I hear it, but I’m guilty of not pulling out this album.
