Spinners, The - Love Don't Love Nobody Lyrics

Sometimes a girl
Will come and go
You reach for love
But life wont let ya know
That in the end
You'll still be lovin her
But then shes gone
You're all alone

Sign of pain
Is on my face, well
My heartbeat stops
But I wont take the blame, no no
I gave her all the love I had within
My love was strong
Somethin went wrong, no! no!

It takes a fool to learn
Yes sir
That love don't love nobody
Love love love love love love
It takes a fool to learn
Yes it does, girl
That love don't love no one
That love don't love no one
It takes a fool to learn
Stop to think about it, well
That love don't love nobody
Oh! Oh no!
It takes a fool to learn
When you're down and out, shout about it
That love don't love no more
Tell the world, oooh babe
No more...
Ohhhhhh, babe
It takes a fool to learn
Gotta be more careful about myself
That love don't love nobody
It takes a fool to learn
Woah baby, took me a long time to learn, to learn, well

That love don't love no one
It takes a fool to learn
I was a fool, you were a fool
That love don't love nobody
Now we got love, we need love
It takes a fool to learn

  16. Charles Gold

    The Spinners’ “Love Don’t Love Nobody” was one of the finest soul records of the 1970s, and still sounds to me like one of the greatest deep-soul ballads of all time. It was written by Charles Simmons and Joseph Jefferson, whose credits appeared on many Philadephia records of the era; the arrangement and production came from the extremely great Thom Bell, who moulded the hits of the Delfonics and the Stylistics as well those of the Spinners. It also has a lead vocal that shows what was lost to the art of soul singing when Philippé Wynne died in 1984 at the age of 43, after suffering a heart attack on stage in Oakland, Calfornia.

    Wynne could decorate a song with wonderfully inventive ornamentation which, by contrast with the work of the narcissists of today’s so-called R&B, never called undue attention to itself but was always in the service of the song, the arrangement, and the production. In that respect he was the peer of Ronald Isley and Teddy Pendergrass. And he was at his exalted best on “Love Don’t Love Nobody”: seven minutes and 13 seconds of soul heaven.

    The record begins with Bell’s piano, discreetly shadowed by a bass guitar and vibes, quietly commanding attention. There’s gospel in the cadences, but also a grave delicacy in Bell’s keyboard voicings and a pensive elegance in his touch. It’s the sound of introspection, even the sound of sadness itself, setting Wynne up for his entrance with that heart-rending opening verse: “Sometimes a girl will come and go / You reach for love, but life won’t let you know / That in the end you’ll still be loving her / But then she’s gone, you’re all alone…”

    As the track builds, Wynne adds his characteristic inventions to the song but firmly resists the temptation to overdo it. He’s listening to Bell’s arrangement, so spare, so subtly sophisticated as it adds strings and backing voices, and he’s making himself a part of it, even when he jams over the long fade.

    One other thing. I was doing some remixing at Sigma Sound in 1974 when I fell into conversation with an engineer, and asked him about Thom Bell. When I told him how much I admired “Love Don’t Love Nobody”, he said that he’d worked on that session a year or so earlier. He told me that the rhythm track had been done in a single take, and that Bell had finished it in tears. That knowledge doesn’t make me listen to it in a different way, but perhaps it does help to explain the very deep connection that it can make.

  78. Gayella Pritchard

    I been learn

  79. Cullen Harris

    Listening to this music says it all!! See I lost my wife Robbie to cancer on December 2nd, 2016 two days shy of our 29th anniversary. Last year I started dating, and fell in love so hard. Helped her emotionally when she lost her son unexpectedly. Now all of a sudden she just wants to be friends. It's difficult when you love so hard. Also at this time my youngest child left for college so I'm dealing with the dreaded empty nest syndrome. So my YouTube family any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!

  80. NITTY103166

    The Spinners Live album from the Latin Casino is one of the best albums out there period!

  81. ECU Baller

    2020...we are still here

  82. EDDIE24842277

    those of us who grew up in the 60s, 70s, and 80s experienced something that our current generation has'nt. we were there when real music was being produced and was sung from the heart. after years of oppression and heartache this was our outlet. times were not that great back then as we had to deal with blatant racism, unemployment and a sense of hopelessness, but the music, the music helped us thru those times and the words were so powerful to listen to, even today. that era will be never be outdone because the youngsters havent experienced or lived thru the suffering that we and our parents did.

  83. Granny the Diva

    My becoming grown for real song. ❤❤❤

  84. Walter Cohen

    Blacks before the 1970's had to be the children of God, they created so many inventions, sang so many wonderful loving songs, and endured so much pain with strength and unified grace. They would not know most of us today!
