Song of the Day #2,882: ‘Just a Little Lovin” – Shelby Lynne

shelby_lynne_little_lovinWhen today’s random iTunes song — the title track from Shelby Lynne’s 2008 album of Dusty Springfield covers — popped up, I was prepared to write a “whatever happened to?” post. Often these Random Weekend selections serve as reminders of artists who recorded their last albums years ago and then fell off the map.

But to my surprise, Lynne has stayed quite busy since this record. She started her own label and released four well-reviewed albums between 2010 and 2015.

I’m not sure why I lost track of her. I own four of Lynne’s albums, each released in the 2000s, and I’m fond of them all.

I guess I have tiers of fandom. I’ll buy everything some artists release, even if that means I end up owning dozens of albums. But for artists I like but don’t love, owning 5-10 albums doesn’t always make sense.

Just a little lovin’
Early in the mornin’
Beats a cup of coffee
For starting off the day

Just a little lovin’
When the world is dawnin’
Makes you wake up feeling
Good things are coming your way

This old world
Wouldn’t be half as bad
It wouldn’t be half as sad
If each and everybody in it had, yeah

Just a little lovin’
Early in the mornin’
That little somethin’ extra
To kinda see them through

Nothing turns the day on
Really gets it dawnin’
Like a little bit of lovin’
From some lovin’ someone like you

This old world
Wouldn’t be half as bad
It wouldn’t be half as sad
If each and everybody in it had

Just a little lovin’
Early in the mornin’
Just a little lovin’
Early in the mornin’
Just a little, just a little

Nothing, no, nothing turns
Nothing turns the day on

Just a little lovin’
Oh, that’s better than anything, oh, no
Just a little lovin’
Early in the mornin’
Just a little lovin’, lovin’

Just a little, oh yeah, oh, yeah
Come on
