You Need Loving
Small Faces Lyrics


I'm gonna pull you in close gonna wrap you up tight
gonna play with the braids that you came here with tonight
I'm gonna hold your face and toast the snow that fell
because friends don't waste wine when there's words to sell

i feel like love is in the kitchen with a culinary eye
I think he's making something special and I'm smart enough to try
if you don't trust yourself for at least one minute each day
well you should trust in this girl cause loving is coming our way
if you can fix me up girl you'll go a long way
if you can fix me up girl you'll go a long way

I'll stand by all this drinking if it helps me through these days
(take my love in these small doses)
It takes a long time just to get this all straight
(take my love in these small doses)
I'll showcase on route 7 when i find the right place
(take my love in these small doses)
It takes a long time just to get this all straight
(take my love in these small doses)
in my mind
this is my free time

because friends don't waste wine when there's words to sell
if you can fix me up girl you'll go a long way
if you can fix me up girl you'll go a long way

I'll stand by all this drinking if it helps me through these days
(take my love in these small doses)
I've spent a long time corresponding in my own way
(take my love in these small doses)
I'll showcase on route 7 when I find the right place
(take my love in these small doses)
It takes a long time just to get this all straight
(take my love in these small doses)
in my mind
this is my free time
to break it all away
spend it all today
spend it all today
it took time then I found you
it took time then I found you

В 1962 году Мадди Уотерс записал «You Need Love», которую написал для него его сверстник Вилли Диксон. В 1966 году британская мод-группа Small Faces записала песню «You Need Loving» для своего одноименного дебютного Decca LP. Некоторые кусочки текста в версии Led Zeppelin были заимствованы из песни Вилли Диксона, любимца Планта. Фразировка Планта особенно похожа на фразировки Стива Мэрриотта в версии Small Faces. Сходство с «You Need Love» могло привести к судебному иску против Led Zeppelin в 1985 году, но спор был урегулирован во внесудебном порядке в пользу Диксона. Роберт Плант, большой поклонник блюз- и соул исполнителей, регулярно цитировал другие песни, особенно на своих концертах.

«Рифф Пэйджа был риффом Пейджа. Он был там прежде всего. Я просто подумал: «Ну, что я буду петь?» И спел это, украл. Теперь с радостью расплатились. В то время было много разговоров о том, что делать. Было решено, что прошло столько времени, и повлияло так же то что... ну, тебя поймают только если ты преуспеешь. Это игра.
(Роберт Плант, Маниакальная личность Роберта Планта)

Woah you foolin'

Deep in your heart woman, you need lovin', yeah,
Oh lovin', alright

It's alright, it's alright...

Woman you need loving, yeah

SMALL FACES & “YOU NEED LOVING”:

El desaparecido cantante, guitarrista y compositor “Steve Marriott” que fuera uno de los creadores junto a Peter Frampton de la banda “Humble Pie” a finales de octubre de 1968 tenía una gran fuerza interpretativa y sobre todo con su aguda voz y el dominio del falsete que tuvo sus seguidores durante la década de los setentas en que dejó firmado su estilo.

Pero es en su primer grupo los “Small Faces” donde demuestra su calidad con un cover que hace de un blues del maestro blusero sureño “Willie Dixon” que años después copian los Led Zeppelin con “Whole lotta Love” que fue lanzado como single y abre el segundo disco de Led Zeppelin (el primer plagio de este grupo que al perder el juicio en 1985 tuvieron que colocar al autor original).

El tema en referencia es el clásico “You Need Loving” compuesto por el bluesman “Wille Dixon” que fue tocado por primera vez por “Muddy Waters en el año de 1962 (tomando muchas frases de esta canción) pero no solo copiaron la letra, además los arreglos e interpretación que los Small Faces realizaron en su disco debut de 1966.

(Hasta el gritito de Steve Marriott se copió Plant).

If the Small Faces had decent management, they would've been huge in America. They were as good as anybody in 1966.

Steve Marriot was the man. Awesome talent that doesn't get his due.

Matt Conley

Say what you like..But Steve was the template. Unsung but never outdone!! Marriot was the voice.

old man of oy

@bonzoRIP Don Arden decided what the writing credits on the Small Faces' Decca material were, because he took a hefty cut of their songwriting royalties. They had no say in it because they were were teenage kids, and he was ripping them off left right and centre.

@William Knell On the album, writing credits say "Marriott & Lane".
