I’ve never been a big fan except for one standout tune, ‘It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over’. This might be one of the best songs I’ve heard an artist come out with over my musically critical listening years.
This track has everything I love about music rolled up into one tight and neat package. The funk ass guitar meshed with the 70’s drum and bass. And why not sprinkle a bit of Rhodes on top of it all to make it that much more appealing.
Why stop there? Add in a killer breakdown with a Sitar thrown in while the insanely catchy string hook drives you right through the tune. And let’s not forget the vocal delivery of Lenny.
Falsetto blazing through the whole tune reaching into the deep pockets of Prince solidified by his switch back into his normal range on the lines “And all my doubts and fears kept me wondering, yeah. If I’d always, always, be in love.” Pardon my french but fuck me right side, Lenny sold me on that one.
I’ll admit it, I bought the cassette single of this one as a youngster and played the hell out of it. If you’re not familiar with the tune I’m happy to provide you with a listen. Please, tell me I’m out of my mind on this one or if you agree.
