It don't matter when you turn
Gonna survive
You live and learn
I've been thinking about you, baby
By the light of dawn

A midnight blue, day and night
I've been missing you
I've been thinking about you, baby
Almost makes me crazy
Come and live with me

Either way, win or lose
When you're born into trouble
You live the blues
I've been thinking about you, baby
See it almost makes me crazy

Child, nothing's right, if you ain't here
I'll give all that I have just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter, I tried to make it clear
That you just don't believe that I'm sincere
I've been thinking about you, baby

Plans and schemes
Hopes and fears
Dreams that deny for all these years
I, I've been thinking about you, baby
Living with me, well

I've been thinking about you, baby
Makes me wanna

Child, nothing's right, if you ain't here
I'll give all that I have just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter, darling, tried to make it clear
Oh, but you just don't believe that I'm sincere
I've been thinking about you, baby
I want you to live with me, well
I've been thinking about you, baby
I want you to live with me

Umm...no.  They did better on the beetle album.

But I do like this album art.  Are those artichokes or roses? 

 
I'm no expert but certainly not artichokes or roses. I'd guess hydrangeas. A beautiful spring flower trying to bloom behind, like, a massive attack?

Do love those drums.
When I start whistling  and dancing in my seat to the music it is  a great piece. I did both. I could really feel that song. Thanks RP
Wikipedia:
Vocals were supplied by the acclaimed soul singer Terry Callier, who was 60 at the time the song was recorded. Callier was an American jazz, soul and folk guitarist singer-songwriter from ChicagoIllinois, who has won a UN Peace Award for his humanitarian work promoting peace through his songs.

Massive Attack produced some really fine work. This is not one of them. This sounds more like the rubbish Moby used to put out.

 
I think it's great and love Moby as well but what's funny is the next track to be played was Moby's All the Hurts We Made.

Who releases "EPs" these days?

 
Lots of artists still release EPs, though it's more often artists who are not signed to major labels.  Sometimes they are are digital-only releases.
This is  a great track. I thought I knew everything by them.

Well Massive Attack obviously!

 
a lot of people release EPs. I think it's even more common the last few years.

So, which is it?

I pull out "10"s very infrequently, so that when I give it to songs like this it means something.

Sounds like: sivert høyem

And he could do this justice.



 
Uhhmm, I think that's because the previous song was a Madrugada tune, w/ Sievert on vocals/guitar.  Just sayin'.....

I love this song, but combined with the video...it is heartbreaking.

Perhaps, but he was already gone by that 2006.  These vocals are quite cool - Terry Callier could feel it.
very nice!

Nah, Terry nailed this one.
I wondered what "It's Now or Never" would transition to.  Excellent.
be nice without the canned strings.......
10 next
Now must spend the afternoon checking out not only more Massive Attack (I really only know Mezzanine), but also Terry Callier.

Oh RP, you are so very bad for my study habits...
Wow, I never heard this before. 
Quite apropos for me at the moment.

I think not - this is outstanding... the emotion comes through intact - it's not some canned hack job.
Just love me some Massive Attack.

So beautiful.

R.I.P. Terry Callier :(

Still under the surprise - wouldn't have guessed this to be Massive Attack neither - Very soul

I like this but Tony Joe White could do a great cover of this song - he isn't just Poke Salad Annie

Sounds funny.
 
It is from a SNL skit, with Mike Meyers,  called "Sprockets."  Mike Meyers played a German talk show host who would end each episode with, "You may touch my monkey," if he approved of the guest.  There was, of course, a monkey on a perch close by.  I loved it.  Here is the only clip I could find.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHZR9SA5pOg

I was listening top RP as I napped. This song brought me up out of sleep just so I could pay attention to it. Powerful!

I have to agree there...both versions, there's a slower one I think on an added disc that comes with the compilation, less produced, more emphasis on the vocals, which is quite pertinent here.
Is this originally a Massive Attack song?  I've heard the Twilight Singers do a live version of it...great tune.
Deep and passionate ..... "I've been thinking about you baby, nothings right .........

Quite Ok song, but what album did it appear on initially? Never heard this one before....

Nm. Wikipedia told me: "Track 14 is a single promoting this compilation."
 

I have this song - got it on a compilation, but since I'm at work, I can't find out which one it's on.  I adore this song!
pure 10.

Vocals are real: Terry Callier.

Loving the vocals....................are they 'real'?

10....+ 1


Barry White could have done a better version
quiet groove
or should I say smooth groove
Never heard this one before. Love it!

Well, I love it! This is one of those songs that grows on you (or at least on me). I've been listening to this album for almost a year now, and every time I like this song more and more.
You may touch my monkey!
Yes, and it is often heard here on RP. DrLex wrote:
