Sam Phillips makes the Rollercoaster shift Upward

Tonight, after a surprisingly good day despite some bad financial news, I don't give a shit about ANYTHING except Sam Phillips singing "I Need Love".

Such exquisite harmonies, catchy pop melodies, gorgeous vocals....all I can say is FUCK, who gives a shit about my car breaking down or mac & cheese? How could I possibly get too bent out of shape about anything when I am listening to this lovely little treasure?

Here are the lyrics - I'm not sure if it's the sentiment of the song, or her hypnotic voice, but tonight, it doesn't really matter. The only thing that matters is that I know that everything is going to be alright. And that feels rather triumphant.

I Need Love - by Sam Phillips


i left my conscience like a crying child
locked the door behind me put the pain on file
broken like a window i see my blindness now

i need love
not some sentimental prison
i need god
not the political church
i need fire
to melt the frozen sea inside me
i need love

driving into town tired and depressed
like a flare the streetlight bursts into an s.o.s.
peace comes to my rescue i don't know what it means
i need love
