Donny Edward Hathaway (October 1, 1945 — January 13, 1979) was an American soul musician.

Hathaway contracted with Atlantic Records in 1969 and with his first single for the Atco label, “The Ghetto, Part I” in early 1970, Rolling Stone magazine “marked him as a major new force in soul music.”His collaborations with Roberta Flack scored high on the charts and won him the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for the duet, “Where Is the Love” in 1973. Six years later, his body was found outside the luxury hotel Essex House in New York City; his death was ruled a suicide.

Lyrics

If I ever leave you….you can say I told you so!
And if I ever hurt you baby….. you know I hurt myself as well.

Is that any way for a man to carry on
Do you think I want my loved one gone
Said I love you
More than you’ll ever know
More than you’ll ever know

When I wasn’t making much money
You know where my paycheck went
You know I brought it home to baby
And I never spent a red cent

Is that any way for a man to carry on
Do you think I want my loved one gone
Said I love you
More than you’ll ever know
More than you’ll ever know

I’m not trying to be
just any kind of man
I’m just trying to be somebody
You can love, trust and understand
I know that I can be
yeaaahhhh
A part of you that no one else could see

I just wanna hear,a hear ya say
its allright
yeahhh yeahhh

I’m only flesh and blood
But I can be everything that you demand
I can be king of everythang
Or just a tiny grain of sand

Is that anyway for a man to carry on
Do you think he wants his little loved one gone
I love you baby, i love you baby
i love youMore than you’ll ever know

If I ever leave you….you can say I told you so!
And if I ever hurt you ….. you know I hurt myself as well.

Is that anyway for a man to carry on
Do you think he wants his little loved one gone
I treid to tell ya I love you baby, i love you baby
yea i love you baby
i love you More than you’ll ever know

i love you
i love you
i love you baby!!

i told you so many times before
I love you
I love

    That breakdancing video was so strange in such a good way– thanks for including that. I also got a kick out of the Sesame Street video 🙂

      Hi Kate. The breakdancing was so fun to find. I just couldn’t resist including it because the combination is not what we expect at all. And yet–I think–it works and there’s a lot of potential in it. I love the dancers’ energy.
      Sesame Street–one of my all time favorite shows for so many reasons. Thanks for visiting my blogcasa, Kate. 🙂

    Wow. From breakdancing to Sesame Street. Nice. I used Grover’s ‘near and far’ skit because I think some of us need to brush up on our personal space skills…

    • January 10, 2014 at 6:39 pm

      You found a Grover vid? Excellent. I hope I can watch it soon. I really enjoyed playing with this theme concept. 🙂

      If you’ve checked your mail you’ll know I’m having problems with your link to your Theme post. Can’t reach it via your link here or on twitter. Nor is it currently showing up on your blogcasa in any form. I’ll keep trying until connected properly.

    Mother Dearest asked me to let you know she posted a new theme: http://myriad234.wordpress.com/2014/01/11/my-favorite-things-hobbies-and-pasttimes-music-theme-for-january-13/

    • January 11, 2014 at 3:13 am

      Interesting. Now we may have two themes to pick from as I asked willow to pick a theme in order to get her back into the selection loop. It’ll all work out somehow.
      “Mother Dearest”? Oh my.

    This is great! What a wide array of contrasting ideas. Sesame Street is great, as is the Escher tribute. But my favorite is the breakdancing to classical music. It’s hard to imagine a contrast much more unexpected than that. Great fun! 🙂

    • January 20, 2014 at 9:56 pm

      I was certainly surprised–and gleeful–to find the combo of breakdancing and classical music. Glad you’re enjoying the show, Deborah.

    Now this would have been fun. Do wish I could listen to your side bar, I see some interesting things there. And skimmed through interesting posts via the home page…to here. Will return when I can. Thank you for all you have done. XXX Bear

    • January 27, 2014 at 7:39 pm

      Bear! So sorry your ears cannot taste the swing treats! If I put them in a post then will your pc let you listen? If so, I’ll be happy to do so. The’re a lot of foot action fun. 😉

        The problem is that music = obnoxious noise in this household of elderly half-deaf folks. Sound is distorted enough that the pleasure of it is gone. Dad does still enjoy percussion, especially Polynesian (or he says he does), but no one else here does or ever did, and he never listens to it.ot This is not my house, air waves, computer, time, or anything else. It is all just too too awkward. My own household (in the swamp) doesn’t like my listening choices and it was difficult to arrange a way to listen … which never was entirely satisfactory. Oh well. It was fun for a while, and probably will be again … hopefully sooner rather than later. In the mean time …. thank you, Eva, so very much. 🙂

      • February 6, 2014 at 7:50 pm

        My pleasure, Bear.
        Fun will indeed be had AGAIN!
        🙂
