Land   Verenigde Staten

Soulzanger Dennis Edwards werd geboren in Birmingham in de Amerikaanse staat Alabama. Hij werd vooral bekend nadat hij in 1968 bij The Temptations de plek van leadzanger David Ruffin had ingenomen.

The Temptations hadden tussen 1969 en 1990 zeven Top 40-hits. Door verschillende wisselingen in de bezetting is Edwards niet op alle singles te horen. De leadzang van grootste hit van de groep, Papa Was A Rollin' Stone (#5 in 1972), werd wel door Edwards verzorgd. Verder had hij in ons land in 1987 één solohit: Don't Look Any Further (#12, featuring Siedah Garrett).

In 1983 verliet Edwards The Temptations, al kwam hij nog wel een paar keer terug om mee te doen aan een reünie.

Edwards stierf een dag voor zijn 75e verjaardag, op 2 februari 2018 in Chicago.






Songtekst

Whoa, oh, well well well well well
Ohhh,hmmmm

Someone to count on
In a world of change
Here I am, stop where you're standin'

What you need is a lover
A man to take over
Oh girl, don't look any further

Strange, when you think of the chances
That we'd both be in a state of mind
Too cool to be careless
Lookin' for the right thing
Oh baby, don't look any further

Tonight
Tonight, we're gonna taste a little, paradise
Rock you all night long, baby
All night long
Daylight
Daylight
I'll still be lookin' in your ebony eyes
And we'll go on and on and on

day-o day-o, mombajee ai-o, well
Don't look any further
day-o day-o, mombajee ai-o, well
Don't look any further

Someone to count on
In a world of changin'
Here I am, stop where you're standin'

What you need is a lover
You need a lover
To love you all over
Love me all over
Oh baby, don't you look any further, further

Don't look any further

Don't look any further

Tonight
Tonight, we're gonna taste a little, paradise
Rock you all night long
Rock you all night long
Daylight
Daylight
I'll still be lookin' in your ebony eyes
And we'll go on and on and on

day-o day-o, mombajee ai-o, say it
Don't look any further
day-o day-o, mombajee ai-o, well
Don't look any further, don't you ever look

day-o day-o, mombajee ai-o,
Don't look any further, further
day-o day-o, mombajee ai-o,
Don't look any further, further

day-o day-o, mombajee ai-o,
Don't look any furth
