Main Ingredient, The - Summer Breeze Lyrics




See the curtains hangin' in the window
In the evenin' on a Friday night
A little light a-shinin' through the window
Lets me know everything's alright

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

See the paper layin' on the sidewalk
A little music from the house next door
So I walked on up to the doorstep
Through the screen and across the floor

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind

Sweet days of summer, the jasmine's in bloom
July is dressed up and playing her tune
When I come home from a hard day's work
And you're waiting there, not a care in the world
See the smile a-waitin' in the kitchen
Food cookin' and the plates for two
See the arms that reach out to hold me
In the evening when the day is through

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind

    See the curtains hangin' in the window, in the evenin' on a Friday night
    A little light a-shinin' through the window, lets me know everything is alright

    Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind
    Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind

  38. looknbakatu

    LOVE! this song, have to give Dues to Seals & Croft for this beauty, can't beat the original (my opinion), but this is right on the heels of S&C's version, Cuba Gooding's voice is so distinctive & recognizable anywhere, LOVE THIS!!!

  39. y not

    🌠sSmooth sounds, of an very gifted Father, singer and entertainer.
    RIP✍😊
    🤔

  40. Selections From a Music Historian

    God rest his soul. The enthusiasm we've seen with Junior definitely came from his father. You should've seen Main Ingredients in concert! My deepest sympathies to Cuba Sr.'s family and friends.

  41. coldaziceee

    OH MY GOD I'M SO STONED RIGHT NOW AND THIS SHIT IS OFF THE FUCKING CHAIN

  42. SAM The SHAM

    Wow l just realized Cuba voice carried the entire song you barely hear the background voices. This man held his own. He was the Voice of main ingredient like Diana Ross was the Supremes Voice, Teddy Pendergrass was the Voice of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, Walter and Scotty the voices of the Whispers, Michael Jackson was The Jackson 5. Chaka Khan was Rufus Beyonce was Destiny 's Child YET all members received same pay and when they left their groups only a few survive. Cuba didn't do so well when he went solo although so talented..of course depressed over career slump, bad management, Drugs, alcohol don't help either .

  43. SAM The SHAM

    My summer breeze will never be the same again .l heard this song at a Pre-HS prom back in May 1974. l remember a friend gave the party for those of us that were not going to the prom. I instead joined the Army. All through boot camp and the rest of the summer of 1974 which l mostly spent in Army training in the barracks this could be heard on my 8 track player LoL oh the memories Cuba was the male singer for me to cover Summer Breeze even though l liked Seals and Croft and Isley Bros version released same yr.l remember Cuba voice struck me Hard. His soul spirit and range Makes you Feel Fine. No one else for me his topped is version
    RIP..Cuba.
    your voice was one of a kind 😂

  44. Raul Green

    Great remake

  45. Kim Jones

    Our summer breeze has gone on to heaven, to blow sweet musical notes on our loved ones gone home.

    Boo! This one is so much more smooth lol

    Valn3d

    the flamingosis version is the best tho jajaja lol

    Lloyd Cole

    Kevin Mitchell. Me 2!

    Hazel Chief-rabbit

    Kevin Mitchell I personally like the Seals and Crofts cover best only because I grew up listening to it. Also (and correct me if I'm wrong), aren't they the ones who wrote the song?

    John Lindsay Green

    Kevin Mitchell different, and just as good.

  68. Matheus Beneli Goulart

    Afu Ra ...

  69. Linda's Place

    So beautiful, music of my youth, added richness, a beautiful male vocalist.

  70. Keith Pieterse

    "That time of year thou mayest in me behold...." I meant "Summer[time] Breeze". Thanks for the upload and a trip down memory lane.

  71. bookieplow

    THE best version of Summer Breeze I've ever heard.

    blessed14real

    bookieplow
    Trust, I use to play this song until the ridges was worn. Then I heard the Isley’s come with it.
    The Isley Brothers gets my vote for sho.

    Russell

    While I like this, I'm sorry to disagree - Seals and Croft's version is just one of those absolute classics that not only define a year, but a decade of great music.

    But as for remakes, I like this for its fusion of funk and smooth jazz sound, then the Isley Brothers take. But Ray Conniff and the Singers??? Seriously, smh ;?)

    j Pat

    @blessed14real You are just giving your opinion, which you are entitled.

    blessed14real

    That’s right.

    We were young .

    Saul Castro

    Unforgettable junior high school years , just make me breath profoundly !!!!

  78. Lungile Nhleko

    My best version of this song, until I heard it played by a pianist on the radio, who I couldn't get his name. No, not the Bobby Baldwin one, this one is as slow as this version, played by somebody who was just making slow love to the piano. At the time, I thought it was Joe Sample or Bobby Lyle.

    Gerald Wooldridge

    Ramsey Lewis my freind

  79. Freddy Montaño

    El sonido es muy sofisticado para su epoca, lo mismo se puede escuchar en portishead decadas despues.

  82. Lenore M.

  83. Lydgia

    A GREAT cover!  Gooding's voice is beautiful to behold.

  84. Selections From a Music Historian

    Cuba's daddy! 

  85. Danny Chin

    Nice orchestration, combination of the harp, xylophone, vibraphone and glockenspiel.

  86. Calvin Naicker

    Must pay tribute to "Seals & Croft" for writing this beautiful song. Great Cover though.

    Mr. Stranger

    Yeah Seals and Croft are the originators. Then there's Isley Brothers version and this one. The rest don't measure up!

    Manuel Birch

    Yeah But Seals & Croft Doesn't Even Come Near

    Mr. Stranger

    @Manuel Birch Yeah your right not arguing with you on that! It's just that Seals & Croft is the one i grew up with and when you hear a song from your childhood it kind of gives you a special - certain kind of feeling. Like the song California Dreamin by the Mammas and the Papas, i grew up hearing that one. Then i discovered the one by Bobby Womack which in my opinion is so much better. Anyways, i agree with you, this version is much, much better.

  87. Kuklapolitan

    This is a bit of a different arrangement and slower than the one from the "Euphrates" album. .  I still think the album version is the best of this song but I'll take it.  Thanks for posting it!

  88. Joey Sangalang

    The best cover ever for me. Thanks for posting/sharing.

  89. Bnasty Beats

    (Cartel de Santa - Cabron) They sampled this song and did an amazing job.

    Star Borne

    So did Notorious BIG

    Star Borne

    Or I should say, his producer. I believe it was Easy Mo Bee

    Libidinem

    Billy Gonzalez its true i just realized it

  90. 15steelcity

    the best version.
    don't kid yourself.
