Late last night I was dreaming
I was dreaming of your charms
I was standing
On the edge of love, darling
With you in my arms

Well you whispered sweet things
And told me
That you loved me and always be true
And you'd stand
On the edge of love with me
If I'd stand with you

I'm standing on the edge of love
Just about to slip and fall
Standing on the edge of love, darling
Waiting on your call
You know I'm standing on the edge of love
Just about to lose my mind
Standing on the edge of love, darling
Waiting on you one more time

Now a young man's mind will wander
Wander to distant shores
If you'll just come here
And stand with me
I won't wander no more

I promise to stop all of my gambling
Even stop staying out late all night
Might even settle down and have babies
Treat ourselves right

'Cause a young man's dreams are many
Lord, so few come true
So if you'll just come here
And stand with me
I'll stand with you

That's why I say you know
I'm standing on the edge of love
Just about to slip and fall
Standing on the edge of love, darling
Waiting on your call, that's why I say
You know, I'm standing on the edge of love
Just about to lose my mind
Standing on the edge of love, darling
Waiting on you one more time

That's why I'm standing, standing
Standing, yes, I'm standing
Standing on the edge of love
Waiting on you one more time

That's why I'm standing, standing
Standing, yes, I'm standing
Standing on the edge of love
Waiting on you one more time

That's why I'm standing, standing
Standing, yes, I'm standing
Standing on the edge of love
One more time

Dear B B King.  He could put that song right.

Sorry, but you are out of order sir. At least there is hope of redemption in the latter part of your assertion.
This harks back to a day when performers had to sing and play beautifully, instead of shouting obscenities in time to the output of a sampler/beat box.  Oh! I see - this is the music that  contemporary "artists" SAMPLE!

Commercial? What the heck are you talking about? "Blues" should only be performed by old, blind guys sitting on a wooden porch, right- everything else is crap?


I met my charm today
She sounds outlandish.
  What a lucky day.
BB was great but definitely not here
B.B. is in home hospice.  I was fearful when I saw this play.  I wish you well, Mr. King.

Of course he really didn't know who B.B. King was, because with this comment he is trying  to lay claim to his being clever.  Bokey, it's ok man.  Just enjoy the show and take notes it's what developing a listening ear is all about; RP is an awesome place to do it and I'm glad you found it. {#Clap}

I saw him about two years ago and was greatly dissappointed. He'd play about half a song, then yammer on bout this or that, play half a song, etc. I don't think he played a full song the entire night. Really dissappointed.
 
He is diabetic, maybe his sugars were off. When I saw him I enjoyed his little yammers about stuff..................love the King

He's kind of earned the right to do that.  Let's see how you do at age 83, and how many people show up to see you do it, ok?

Once in a while he will play two notes together :-)

I've seen Mr. King perform several times: stunning every time. I think he's still touring: James Brown was great and all, but Mr. King is the REAL 'hardest workin' man in show business'...

Croydon Fairfield Halls in 1985 was when BB King and his superb band introduced me to the blues, and I haven't looked back since. It's a shame he had to go and endorse BBurger King a few years back, but I suppose he has to clear his gambling debts some how.

B.B. always sounds fantastic. He does not have any music I don't like.

Happy Birthday!  You are the Blues!
Bokey, you are a nut. I wish I had done it!

I do, but I am crazy myself so it may not count. :stupid:
The most funny thing about this discussion is the throng of people crying bloody murder about not having heard about BB King. :eyes: It just goes to show irony is really wasted on some people. :iamwithstupid: :lol:

Century 100's possibly? Nice description! :clap:

You must have either a foot fetish or a fish fetish.
First note I heard BB play live at the Arena Theatre in Houston touched my sole. As cliché as it sounds, it was unbelievable, the emotional power of that one note.
Never heard of BB King? I can't believe that! I saw a concert in San Antonio, TX in about 1971. Opening act #1 Tower of Power (primo jazz and brass even today.) Opening Act #2 CCR. Primary act that brought the entire audience to their feet for almost 2 hours of the "King" jamming and bluz'n. B.B. King. Go buy ANY of his albums and get out some whiskey on ice and a hanky. The man can play the blues.

Bokey. you must be having a joke on us aren't you. Never heard of B.B. King??????

Yeah. Everyone knows that bad fantasy is the one true religion! Choose the correct belief genre or go to hell. :P
Song #9. Everybody fuzzing about B.B. since I only listen to RP,anyone! Who the heck is this Tom guy? A Norveigen? :think:
Goodness, I'd of sworn it was EC! Truly, GREAT!

This is what happens when I get the first post.A blank canvas can be a dangerous thing. I've got to credit Bill with an assist on that.If he hadn't pointed it out the whole topic might have drifted off on B.B. King or the history of the blues or something.
I tried to delete my comment re bokey's infamous BB King comment, realizing mine may appear critical, when in fact I was impressed that one joke (bokey's) could cause such a panic. Anyone who has read two posts by him would recognize the subtle signature of the master-of-sarcasm. lol on the "assist"

B.B. King isn't well-known but back in the 1930s on planet Sckmeeov, he used to do background vocals for L. Ron. He has some talent but you only ever hear him on RP. Regular stations don't play him because of the conspiracy.
Also-Is there anybody out there who doesn't think Tom Cruise is nuts?
B.B. King isn't well known?!? That I find hard to believe...
Love B. B.'s Blues.
I love the blues! and yes I believe that if you think Tom Cruise is cool something is wrong with you. Also there are still a few stations here and there on the radio dial that play BB King.
PIRATES?

Key symptoms of a Scientologist worldview: (a) Unnatural appreciation for Tom Cruise and his body of work. (b) Overuse or misuse of the word "cool" in approbatory contexts. (c) Unfamiliarity with the finer traditions and attributes of American (especially African-American) culture. (d) Reads bad science fiction and believes that it's true.

Oh Bokey! Why are you listening to RP? Isn't there a top 40 radio station where you hail from?

Obviously, not knowing who BB King is catagorizes you as severly musically deprived and deranged beyond help. Thinking Tom Cruise is cool just confirms that you need serious help! Thank You RP for playing this soothing blues tune! :notworthy:
I really do think he was joking...at least I hope so. By the way I just had my first experience of hearing something played on RP that I uploaded, kinda neat. Glad you like the song, Bill!
