Thursday Theme Song - Everybody needs somebody

Everybody needs somebody
Artist: Solomon Burke

You know people when you do find that somebody
Hold that woman, hold that man
Love him, hold him, squeeze her, please her, hold her
Squeeze and please that person, give 'em all your love
Signify your feelings with every gentle caress
Because it's so important to have that special somebody
To hold, kiss, miss, squeeze and please

Everybody needs somebody

Everybody needs somebody to love

Someone to love

Sweetheart to miss
Sugar to kiss

I need you you you
I need you you you
I need you you you...

Reverentially the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Solomon Burke was called "The King of Rock 'N Soul".

Solomon Burke, 70, died on October 10, 2010 of natural causes at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport.
