Only love can do that

Matthew E. White’s debut album was truly one of the most unique and best albums of the summer. It’s combination of New Orleans jazz and powerful rock combine beautifully, especially on the song “Will You Love Me.” The song begins quietly enough, with White crooning to the beat of his own moans and groans and soft piano. He asks for love, something to fill his lonely days. As the music builds, the question becomes less timid and more sure and strong. Love becomes his anthem in this chorus “only love can do that,” as horns blair his statement and choral voices chime in to help. [VIA]

The song is built around a quote from Martin Luther King Jr: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
