I found the love I've been looking for
It's a real love, it's a real love
Standing up behind an electric guitar
It's a real love, it's a real love
And all the time I was thinking no way
And all the time I never thought I'd say
I found the love I've been looking for
It's a real love, it's a real love
It's a real love, it's a real love

Said come on baby we really got something
It's a soul connection, you're changin' my world
Give me your affection, be my girl
It's a real love, it's a real love
It's a real love, it's a real love

The thing about you so far, you squeeze my peaches
Then you send me postcards of girls on beaches
You're drinking in a bar in Amsterdam
I'm thinking baby far out, be my man
It's a real love, it's a real love
It's a real love, it's a real love

I found the love I've been looking for
It's a real love, it's a real love
Standing up behind an electric guitar
It's a real love, it's a real love
And all the time I was thinking no way
And all the time I never thought I'd say
I found the love I've been looking for
It's a real love, it's a real love

Please, Bill, ease up on this one a little. This is a good song and artist. But waaaaayyy overplayed on RP.

Loved her before the burn out....now I LEAP for the mute button....too sad!  Sweet Old World was her peak!!!

To me, it sounds like she's always had a few too many. Too many what? I don't know...{#Think}

love this song...  it is so good for the ears...


This album hasn't grown on me as much as I'd hoped it would.  Her previous ("West") was a heartbreaking masterpiece, hard to live up to.

Just caught a Brunette Lucinda in DC last week... 

Her sound is a thousand times better live than it is in her studio recordings..

Some day I would love to see her live.  3 of her CD's are my all time favorites,
which I would love to hear live.

That goes for pretty much any musician who ever drew breath.

I had to explain "oxymoron" to my 6th graders the other day...I should have described it as a happy Lucinda Williams song

guess I'm too used to the pain to go this direction...all that hopeful gravelly voice like too many cigarettes and time...what slot do I put it in? 
This is a hot little power pop tune. Quite unlike her usual bluesy stuff.

I always give her another chance when I haven't heard the song before but I just don't get what people find in her. I think she's just awful. The voice grates, the accent is phony-baloney and the songs themselves are third rate. I would give her a zero if I could because I run to turn the music off when she comes on.
 
My thoughts exactly....she annoys.. a horrible noise.

I liked her last 3 albums a lot, but found this one a bit of a disappointment. Good but not great.

anyone know who plays lead guitar on this??....it rocks!
 
Probably Doug Pettibone.  Criminally underrated player.

? There's no accounting for taste, but I can't imagine why you think that. She was actually born in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

 Did you think Ann Landers had a phony Chicago accent?

Hey, good luck with the depression. Take your meds, and get better. Seriously. I know from whence you speak.

As for Lucinda: she made one of the best albums in the Americana music archive. Her "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road" is just phenomenal. Give it a spin. Especially "Jackson". That's my favorite from that album.

Take it easy. {#Wave}
 

Yeah.  "Car Wheels" is fantastic.  To me she's sort of a female Steve Earle.  Edge & power.  Nice.
God, if I could play guitar like this....
Lucinda's music is a little on the odd side.  I can't decide if I like it or not.


This song always gets us dancing...  love it...

Tracks 3, 7 & 12 are good, the rest I can take or leave, Real Love is annoying.

Bit of Boulevard by Jackson Browne in there. I really like this.

Lucinda can do no wrong. Rock it, babe.
I liked her music better when she wasn't happy and in love.

Maybe it's a musician thing. I'm a professional musician but have been deeply clinically depressed lately—haven't played in two months. Listening made me realize that playing is all I really care about. Better than sex, better than drugs—better than Goofy! (In joke from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit".) This song got me fired up. Great groove. She's talking about passion, people! If you don't have that, maybe you don't get it. NOI.

Interestingly, Lucinda's name came up recently on a search of artists whose music is featured on the TV show "House, M.D.". Don't recall the title of that one at the moment, but I found it quite moving. And downloaded it.

well, you're right, she's no steve winwood.

 Which part of her accent? The part she picked up living in Lousiana, Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, or Tennessee?
I do not really love this.
I'll come out of rating retirement just to point out how annoying this song is.
Sounds like the cinephile's anthem - "it's a reel love"

I'll get me coat...

They had me at the beginning.  Well, I guess, all things must pass.  Really quickly in this instance.


nice song, sounds like she's over her depression...
anyone know who plays lead guitar on this??....it rocks!
pretty bored with this one already.
At times she sounds like Brak when he sings his little ditties.  Freeeekin hilarious.

I can't stand this song. I mute my player every time it comes on. {#Crashcomp}

Freakin Rocks !
Saw her the other night and she opened the show with this song, a much happier Lucinda then in the past. The show and her backup band were great.


If you're not already a fan of Lucinda's work, I would highly suggest you start with "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road" (1998 release) or her debut release (extended version).  Absolutely inspiring musicianship and lyrics.  Kudos Lucinda & Friends!  When are you coming to Florida again??
