You ARE the Best Thing….Part Deux

16 Feb

While it’s difficult to touch the greatness that is Gladys Knight & the Pips, Ray LaMontagne recently got pretty close with a song that’s very reminiscient of it’s namesake title.  Ray blends a little soul, solid R&B beats, and some pretty awesome horns that rival the original soul staple.

  You Are The Best Thing, Ray LaMontagne

Ray’s song is a bit more joyous, while Gladys’ is more melancholy and desperate.   Both still fit the bill.

Baby
It’s been a long day, baby.
Things ain’t going my way
you know I need you here
here by my side
all of the time

And Baby, the way you move me its crazy.
it’s like, you see right through me, you make it easier,
You please me and you don’t even have to try.

oh because,
you are the best thing
you are the best thing
you are the best thing
ever happened to me

Baby,
We’ve come a long way, baby.
you know, I hope and I pray that you believe me
When I say this love will never fade away

oh because
you are the best thing
you are the best thing
you are the best thing
ever happened to me

Now both of us have known love before,
To come on up promising, like the spring, just walk on out the door.
Our hearts are kind and are hearts are strong.
well, let me tell you what exactly is on my mind.

you are the best thing
you are the best thing
you are the best thing
ever happened to me

you are the best thing
you are the best thing
you are the best thing
ever happened to me

yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah,
now, now, now, now

    Ray is incredible. I’d also recommend checking otu Miranda Lambert’s side project Pistol Annies. theyve got a new album coming out 8/23. http://www.pistolannies.com
