Smooth

Santana, 1999
Featuring Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20)

(guitar solo begins song)

Man it's a hot one
Like seven inches from the midday sun
I hear you whispering the words that melt everyone
But you stay so cool
My muñequita, my Spanish harlem mona lisa
You're my reason for reason
The step in my groove

BRIDGE:
And if you said this life ain't good enough
I would give my world to lift you up
I could change my life to better suit your mood,
Cause you're so smooth

CHORUS:
And just like the ocean under the moon
Well it's the same as the emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of lovin’ that can be so smooth
Give me your heart, make it real
Or else forget about it

I'll tell you one thing
If you would leave it would be a crying shame
In every breath and every word, I hear your name is callin' me out, yeah
Out from the barrio, you hear my rhythm on your radio
You feel the turning of the world so soft and slow
Turning you round and round

BRIDGE

CHORUS

(guitar solo)

CHORUS

Or else forget about it...
Or else forget about it...
Or else go and forget about it...
Gimmie your heart, make it real
Or else forget about it, oh oh now let's go and forget about it...
Or else forget about it, oh oh now let's go and forget about it...
Now now now, let's go and forget about it...

(or else forget about it, or else forget about it or else forget about it)

(Guitar solo until fade)

Que dire de Santana ? L’un des meilleurs guitaristes de l’histoire du rock’n’roll, mais un qui ne chante jamais sur ces propres chansons. En 1999, il publie « Smooth » ou Rob Thomas de Matchbox 20 chante, une paire sensationnelle.

Et le concert à Chula Vista en 2000 qui a suivi l’album était extraordinaire. Santana est local à San Diego (il est de Tijuana) et il y est complètement adulé … Un grand souvenir de concert en plein air avec Nora à mes côtés, génial !
