Go Slow
Julie London Lyrics


Go slow, ooh honey, take it easy on the curves
When love is slow, ooh honey,
What a tonic for my nerves.
Go slow, ooh honey, we've got such a lot of time
When love is slow, ooh honey,
How the mercury does climb.

Go slow, ooh-ooh honey,
Take it easy on the curves.
When love is slow, ooh honey,
What a tonic for my nerves!

Go slow, ooh-ooh honey,
We've got such a lot of time.
When love is slow, ooh honey,
How the mercury does climb!

I like my lovin' done gently,
So when your kissin' lips start,
Just a little here, a little there,
Sort of a la carte!

Go slow, ooh-ooh honey,
Take it easy like you should;
I like my lovin' done gently,
So when your kissin' lips start,
Just a little here, a little there,
Sort of a la carte!

Go slow, ooh-ooh honey,
Take it easy like you should;
When love is slow, ooh honey,
Then it does you so much good!

You make me feel so good,
You make me feel so good!

This is how someone can be sexy without being tacky. Sensual without being crass. Intimate without being vulgar.

Julie London's voice combined with her unique phrasing of lyrics and her wonderful delivery estabished her one as of the most memorable female singers of the 1950's. There was a cool boho chic/jazz aura about her. She wasn't a loud belter, nor did she need to hit every note and octave known to man to get her point across.

Instead she had an elegant, understated manner and use this to her advantage and this is one of her most seductive songs. The lush string arrangement on this track and her soft yearning style is a pleasure to listen to more than half a century after it's recording.......

woohooboy perfectly stated!!!

Plus, it's such sage advice, with tasteful delivery.

+woohooboy Yes! Totally agree!!! I don't mind singers belting or doing other gymnastic stuff with their voice - however, I find it to be a bit messy and boring to be quite honest, when singers to it all the time, like belting out every other note in the song their performing. I think that with music/singing it is just like when you're cooking. You can use the different spices to create a tasty experience - but once you put to much of the spices into the dish, you're ruining it totally, it is just a big muddy mess.
- Use the spices wisely, and you can create a magical dish, that people will come back for, again and again.

I just love how she teases your ears with her voice. She's so smooth and saltery and puts other singers to shame.

Miss London gave meaning to the words "Timeless Music." It seems like every song she touched became timeless. I think that in 2020 every song she sang 70 years ago and more recently, is just as current as anything released this year. I miss her, her music, her acting, and the example of fidelity she left us. The lady was a real class act.

This is pure sensuality, pure music magic.

God I LOVE her! Was not aware as a kid watching "Emergency" that she had been a singer...discovered her music about 3 years ago and now i'm obssessed.
