Someone on YouTube sent me this version of the Leslie Gore/Quincy Jones classic covered by the excellent Jennifer Holiday.
I love her so much.
What a great song, and she does it so well.
Prostitutes and anonymous sex addicts and abject deplorables know what the desire to be loved by name really means ...
And we know what it means to ask, to beg another to, say you love me ..................... I need you, to see me through, I just need to hear you say ... I love you.
Don't you know that is what we are asking of you, O Lord? When we do what we do - O my God, I am so heartily sorry ...
Say you love me!
