Al Green – Let’s Stay Together

On the 1972 album of the same name, it reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and remained on the chart for 16 weeks. It also topped Billboard’s R&B chart for nine weeks. The song later appeared on the soundtrack to Pulp Fiction. It was ranked the 60th greatest song of all time by Rolling Stone magazine on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Al knows he needs no other, it seems based on the title and lyrical hints he may have thought about leaving, but ultimately decided she’s what he needs and wants in his life. The reasons he thought he needed to break up did not exist. Al wants to be with his woman no matter what. “When times are good or bad, when happy or sad.” I think that sums up what love is.

Let’s Stay Together lyrics

(Let’s stay together)
I’m, I’m so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
It’s alright with me
‘Cause you make me feel so brand new
I want to spend my life with you
Things just ain’t the same, baby, since we’ve been together
Ooh, loving you forever
Is what I need
Let me be the one you come running to
I’ll never be untrue

Ooh, baby, let’s, let’s stay together
Loving you whether, whether times are good or bad, happy or sad
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why somebody, why people break up?
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/a/al-green-lyrics/let_s-stay-together-lyrics.html ]
Oh, turn around and make up
I just can’t see
You’d never do that to me (Would you, baby?)
So to be around you is all I see
Is what I want us to
Let’s, we ought to stay together
Loving you whether, whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Let’s, let’s stay together
Loving you whether, whether times are good or bad, happy or sad
