Artiestinformatie


De Chi-Lites waren afkomstig uit Chicago en kwamen niet zoals de meeste soulgroepen uit Memphis of Philadelphia. De leadzanger van de groep was Eugene Record. De groep scoorde in Amerika elf top 10-r&b-hits tussen 1969 en 1974. In Nederland scoorde de groep slechts één bescheiden Top 40-hit met (For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People. Dit nummer stond 4 weken in de Top 40 en bereikte de 26e plaats als hoogste notering. Daarnaast stond de groep nog 4 keer in de Tipparade (o.a. met Have You Seen Her).

Eugene Record is op 64-jarige leeftijd in 2005 in Chicago overleden.



Songtekst

Hmm...hmm...
Mmm...mmm...

I remember, oh, yeah
The signs of springtime
There were birds, music everywhere
Everywhere

Some of us played, oh, yeah
And some of us cried
Can't you see, oh, can't you see
The tears in my eyes

And what I had dreamed of, oh...Lordy (What I had dreamed of)
I thought it was him
10 feet tall, oh...
I was ridin' so high
With eyes of a child, oh... (Eyes of a child)
Shinin' so bright, yes, they were

Coldest days of my life
They were the coldest days of my life
I had to run for cover, yeah, yeah, yeah (Had to run for cover, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
The cold-coldest days of my life
I thought there was no other, no, no (Thought there was no other, no, no, no, no)

Lord, take away (Take it) the pain (Take it)
Oh, you know, you know that it was (Take it, take it)
And it couldn't be (Take it) much worse
Down low, down low
Down the low
Down the low
It just couldn't be that bad
Ooh...down the low
It just couldn't be that bad
Ooh...down the low
Oh, down, down
Down the low
Here all alone, yeah
Ooh...down the low
Ooh...down the low
Ooh...down the low
Ooh...down the low

Ooh...ooh...

I remember, ooh, yeah, yeah
The signs of springtime
I'm trying to keep the past behind me
But voices suddenly remind me
That she's gone

She's what I had dreamed, oh... (What I had dreamed of)
She's all that I think of

Coldest days of my life
They were the coldest days of my life
I thought there was no other, no, no (Thought there was no other, no, no, no, no)
The cold-coldest days of my life

I had to run for cover, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Had to run for cover, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
The cold-coldest days of my life
I had to run for cover, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Had to run for cover, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

The coldest days of my life
I thought there was no other, no, no (Thought there was no other, no, no, no, no)
The cold-coldest days of my life
I thought there was no other, no, no (Thought there was no other, no, no, no, no)

The cold-coldest days of my life
I had to run for cover, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Had to run for cover, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Coldest days of my life
Coldest days of my life
