More Than One Kind of Love
Joan Armatrading

There's a lot of things you should hold dear
Keep in your heart
Never let go
Never let go
Never let go
Pride and dignity
A sense of self
Hold on

When that boy leaves
And you need someone to turn to
When you feel alone
You will know you're not alone
If you've been true
To all who are true to you
You'll make it
You'll make it fine

If you remember your friends
Just remember you can call
Just remember that passion fades
Good friendships seldom die
Go ahead have your fun
But don't turn your back on everyone
Though the body needs love
There is more than one kind

More
More than one kind of love
There is more
More than one kind

Yes he fills your heart
Fills your mind
He's all you want
All you need
Everything
Everything
Everything but

Love that's that exclusive
That obsessive
Can hurt

When that love pales
And becomes human emotion
Where will you go
If you've neglected those you know
But if you stay true
To those who are true to you
You'll make it
You'll make it fine

If you remember your friends
Just remember you can call
Just remember that passion fades
Good friendships seldom die
Go ahead have your fun
But don't turn your back on everyone
Though the body needs love
There is more than one kind

More
More than one kind of love
There is more
More than one kind

Joan Armatrading    (9 Dec 1950)
ne Joan Anita Barbara Armatrading

Strong fan base, a truly eclectic style, so many firsts, international fame and amazing music that other musicians are happy to cover! Not bad for a pioneering woman from tiny St. Kitts.

"Born on the island of St. Kitts, British singer/songwriter Joan Armatrading was her country's first black woman to make commercial inroads into her chosen genre, spicing her take on folk with bits of soul and reggae, and has had a remarkably long, consistent career."

"Emigrating to England in 1958, Armatrading met lyricist Pam Nestor in a touring production of Hair, and the two began collaborating on material later featured on Armatrading's 1972 debut, Whatever's for Us. The two ended their partnership afterward, and Armatrading resurfaced in 1975 with Back to the Night. Featuring former members of Fairport Convention, Joan Armatrading catapulted the singer into the U.K. Top 20 and produced her only Top Ten single, "Love and Affection.""

"Armatrading's subsequent albums sold well in the U.K. to her newly established fan base but only respectably in the U.S., where it took her until 1980 to have a real hit (the all-electric Me Myself I). The Key also did quite well, but Armatrading remained largely a cult artist with a small but devoted following in America, never quite achieving the stardom she had in Britain. ~Steve Huey, All Music Guide 1  

Joan "has mixed eclectic musical styles over decades of recording and performing. She has scored several UK hit singles, the biggest of which were "Love & Affection", "Me Myself I" and "Drop the Pilot". Generally, her music is mostly pop with forays into rock, folk, jazz, and even reggae. Her popularity is primarily as an album artist and as a singer-songwriter."

"Armatrading's latest album, Into the Blues, was released in the United States on May 1, 2007, and Joan is currently touring to promote the record, which made her the first UK artist to debut at #1 on Billboard blues chart. The album, which Armatrading calls "the CD Ive been promising myself to write for a long time," has a strong blues-rock feel. Armatrading has retrained herself in the classic lead Chicago Blues style rather than the fast semi-acoustic chording which typified her earlier guitar work, and now does all guitar work for the band on the album and stage."

Genre: Pop, Rock, Folk, Reggae
