Lovin’ You – Minnie Riperton

It is a song originally interpreted by the American R&B group LaBelle, and which became famous in 1975 by Minnie Riperton. With a sound of disco music, the song became famous thanks to the phrase included in the chorus that reads: “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?

 

Landslide – Fleetwood Mac

Stevie also knows how to give a mysterious touch to the slow compositions, as in ‘Landslide’, with an atmosphere very well achieved thanks to Lindsey’s acoustic guitar, who then doubles with the electric to give it a greater rural flavor, as well in the style of what Led Zeppelin did in ‘That’s The Way’.

 

Love Of My Life – Queen

Love Of My Life is extremely creative in vocal composition and execution. There is a “pseudo-classical” line here, which is actually Mercury’s experimentation in listing different instruments in affable melodic lines that have the same power as the lyrics.

 

Sweet Maxine – The Doobie Brothers

“Sweet Maxine”, opening of the LP co-written by Johnston and Simmons with lead vocals of the former, who describes a rock-loving, prankster, and powerful femme fatale… she’s got the power in her soul… in honk tonk, gospel forms, and boogie rock blues.
