TBT : As de George Michael et Mary J Blige

Rédigé par

Le regretté George Michael n’a pas beaucoup de duos à son actif, mais on se souvient de sa chanson As qu’il chantait avec la talentueuse Mary J Blige. C’était en 1998 et on aime toujours autant ce titre.

Une reprise de Stevie Wonder

On a tendance à l’oublier, mais As est une reprise. Ce titre a été écrit et chanté initialement par Stevie Wonder. Cette chanson date de 1976 et figure sur son album Songs in a Key of Life. As a été reprise plusieurs fois. Par George Michael et Mary J Blige, donc, et aussi par Sister Sledge ou encore Anthony Hamilton et Marsha Ambrosious.
La version du chanteur anglais a été un vif succès dans les charts internationaux. La voix puissante de Mary J Blige n’y était certainement pas pour rien ! Le clip où des doubles de George Michael et Mary J dansent sur la piste étaient quant à lui très innovant.

Paroles de As de George Michael et Mary J Blige

As around the sun the Earth know she’s revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may
Just as hate knows love’s the cure
You can rest your mind assured that
I’ll be loving you alwaysAs now can’t reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older everyday
Just as all that’s born is new
You know what I say is true
That I’ll be loving you alwaysUntil the rainbow burns the stars out of the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the day that 8 times 8 times 8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no moreDid you know that true love asks for nothing
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day
As today I know I’m living but tomorrow
Could make me the past
But that I mustn’t fear
I know deep in my mind
The love of me I’ve left behind
Cause I’ll be loving you always
Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream
Until the day is night and night becomes the day
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
Until the day that 8 times 8 times 8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more
Did you know that true love asks for nothing?
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day
As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may
For now I know deep in my mind
The love of me I’ve left behind
Cause I’ll he loving you always.
Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream
Until the day is night and night becomes the day
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
Until the day that 8 times 8 time 8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more
