Catching Up With Melissa Manchester

I recently had the wonderful pleasure of interviewing Melissa Manchester in-person and in her hotel room. While I’ve interviewed countless people over the past few years, this was a first for me and a surreal experience. Melissa was as lovely and charming as could be, and our conversation exceeded my expectations, covering a wide swath of her impressive career. In my interviews with artists, I try to connect with them in some meaningful way because it establishes an excellent rapport and lets them know that I understand them. Well, Melissa and I connected right from the get-go, and, as a result, my appreciation for her artistry and love for her music has increased ten-fold. If you haven’t bought her new album, The Fellas, you should. And make it a point to see this lovely lady live, as she puts on a show like no other.

Dionne Warwick: All In Love Is Fair

One of the most beautiful songs of all time is “All In Love Is Fair” by Stevie Wonder. Below are the lyrics as well as my favorite interpretation of the song. After watching the video, I’m sure you’ll agree that Dionne Warwick’s version is simply gorgeous.

“All In Love Is Fair”

All in love is fair
For love’s a crazy game
Two people vow to stay
In love as one they say
But all is changed with time
The future none can see
The road you leave behind
Ahead lies mystery
But all in love is fair
I had to go away
A writer takes his pen
To write these words again
That all in love is fair

All of fate’s a chance
It’s either good or it’s bad
I tossed my coin to say
In love with me you’ll stay
And all in war is so cold
You either win or you lose
And when the game is played
The winner must be paid
But all in love is fair
I should have never left your side
A writer takes his pen
To write these words again
That all in love is fair

A writer takes his pen
To write these words again
That all in love is fair
