CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
YOU WERE MEANT FOR ME
“…I can see my friends
turn green with envy,
every time I tell them
I’m so glad you’re mine...”
William Peterkin composed the beautiful love song "You Were Meant For Me". Donny Hathaway's soulful and tender reading of the ballad remains its definitive version.
There is no exaggeration or schmaltz in Peterkin's lyrics. Its simplicity conveys a profound and genuine love for his partner. The lack of hyperbole injects greater sincerity into each verse. Few tracks say "I love you" better than this one.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
