Al Green is een Amerikaanse dominee en gospel- en soulzanger, op 13 april 1946 geboren in Forrest City in de staat Arkansas. Hij geldt als één van de populairste soulzangers allertijden en is vooral in de jaren '70 populair.

Het duurt echter tot 1988 voor hij zijn debuut maakt in de Top 40. Put A Little Love In Your Heart, een duet met Annie Lennox voor de komische kerstfilm Scrooged, wordt uitgeroepen tot Alarmschijf en schopt het tot de 13e plaats.

Al Green is ook bekend van de top 10-hit The Message Is Love uit 1989, maar omdat de Nederlandse hoes alleen Arthur Baker And The Backbeat Disciples vermeldt, geldt het nummer bij ons niet als hit van Green.

Eind 1993 staat Al Green in de Tipparade met Love Is A Beautiful Thing.




Songtekst

This is what I believe..

Been so long since I met you
And all the changes we've been through
And all this time I can't forget you
Everywhere I turn I think of you
And I..I wanna love ya baby
And you-ooh, you are all I need

Soul to soul, fire to fire
Nothing's like this man's desire
Love is a beautiful thing
One to one, you and me
Maybe it's our destiny
Cos love is a beautiful thing
It's so beautiful, beautiful

Love is such a sweet emotion
I want to share it all with you
Your trust and..endless devotion
There ain't nothing in this world we can't do
Tonight..I want to thank, thank you baby
And you make my life complete

Soul to soul, fire to fire
Nothing's like this man's desire
Love is a beautiful thing
One to one, you and me
Maybe it's our destiny
Cos love is a beautiful thing
It's so beautiful, beautiful

...Somebody raise your hand now [beautiful, beautiful]
...Ooooooooh I know I know I know [beautiful, beautiful]

And I, I wanna touch you baby
And you, you're all I need

Soul to soul, fire to fire
Nothing's like this man's desire
Love is a beautiful thing
One to one, you and me
Oh I know it's our destiny
Cos love is a beautiful thing
It's so beautiful, beautiful

Stay together through thick and thin
Now I know I've got a friend
Cos love is a beautiful thing
Face our fears all through the years
Now I know there are no more tears
Loves is a beautiful thing

Soul to soul, fire to fire
Nothing's like this man's desire
Cos love is a beautiful thing

Ohhhhhh, you and me
Oh I know it's our destiny
Love is a beautiful thing
It's so beautiful thing, it's a beautiful thing
Love is a beautiful thing
Yeahhhhh
Ohhh ohhhh
Love is a beautiful thing
It's so beautiful, beautiful
You're so beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful beautiful, beautiful, so beautiful
Let's stay together
Cos I'm still in love with you
Hold me, hold me for the good times
I'm tired of being alone
Here I am
Beautiful, beautiful, it's a beautiful thing
Don't let nobody change your mind
It's a beautiful thing
