Q & A with Julie: What do the Blues mean to you?

Question: What do the Blues mean to you?

Julie Black: Music is my salvation. For many people, including me, music is medicine. Blues is the strongest medicine. Blues is human emotion in it’s most condensed form, all the highs, all the lows for better or worse. Blues allows me to express feelings that are larger than words, or too large to bear. It releases me, it eases me, it burns a fire in me, it flows from me. Its voice is boundless, honest, raw and universally available.

What do the Blues mean to you?

Q & A with Julie: Of the songs you’ve written, which is your favorite?

Question: Of the songs you’ve written, which is your favorite?

Julie Black: Depends on my mood. Music is medicine, so it really depends on the moment and my frame of mind. Of course I’m usually obsessed with whatever song I’ve just written. I guess today, I’m smitten with “Love Grand” which our keys player Michael Johnn calls “50 Shades of Grey”…lol..Just like any other art form, I guess every person sees something different.

What is your favorite song?

Go & Get Her – Julie Black Lyrics – Call Me Angel For Blues

Go & Get Her

Well, I couldn’t believe what I heard last night
From the man that got the best of my life
He said “Babe I appreciate all the things you done
and how you stood by me through years of strife.”

“You should be happy for me because my luck has changed.
My ship has just come in.
She’s a real sweet girl. Her name is Darlene.
She’s young. She’s blonde. She’s thin.”

Well that didn’t set well with me
There’s only one thing I could say
Tonight I’ll find me someone to make me feel better
Then I’m gonna go.. I’m gonna go.. and get her.

He was shocked by my quick response.
He said “Hold on now let me explain.”
But the door was swingin’ I’d up and gone
I bolted out like a slave unchained.

You best think about how you been messin’
It’s time you learned a little respect
I’m gonna teach your lyin’ ass a lesson
And when I see sweet Darlene I’ll snap her neck!

Well.. that didn’t set well with me
There’s only one thing I could say
Tonight I’ll find me someone to make me feel better
Then I’m gonna go.. I’m gonna go.. and get her.

Well I went to the bar … and was tellin’ my sorrows
To this helatiously good lookin man
He said “I’m sorry to hear ..you got the short end of the stick
Tell me Mama what’s your plan?”

Well there was one thing to say
At a moment like that
So I went ahead and shot from the hip.
“I’m lookin’ for someone to make me feel better,
Then I’m gonna go and get her.
Then I’m gonna go.. I’m gonna go and get her.

Feelin’ Strange – Julie Black Lyrics – Call Me Angel For Blues

Feelin’ Strange

You know how to drive a woman insane
And I don’t even know your name
But when you dance so close
Man you get me feelin’ strange.

I like the way that you take control
Make me feel like I’m in your flow
I dig your tender touch
And the way you move in nice and slow

You know how to treat a lady
The way she oughtta be
You just keep your game on smooth
I might take you home with me

Your eyes flood me with heat
You move in time with every beat
Oh the way you dance ,
weaves clouds beneath my feet.

I bend to your command
There’s a fire in your strong hands
You got me thinkin’ things
my mind can’t hardly stand

You know how to treat a lady
The way she oughtta be
You just keep your game on smooth
I might take you home with me

You know how to drive a woman insane
And I don’t even know your name
But when you dance so close
Man you get me feelin’ strange
When you dance so close
Man you get me feelin’ strange
The way you dance so close
Man you get me feelin’ strange.
