David Benoit – You Never Love Me The Same Way Twice

1e.About three decades ago, one pianist in his 20s with 2 albums on a small label. He played on birthdays, several bars and small nightclubs as struggle to make a living. Then he was invited to Philippines in 1981, everything changed. For the first time ever he felt just like a superstar, paparazzi waiting at the airport, big applause and busy interviews. His song with Arnold McCullun on vocal, “Take A Look Inside My Heart” was ignored in the US, it suddenly becomes a big hit on every Filipino radios. “As for many years I was this sort of legendary figure there”, said Benoit who best known as a successful jazz-fusion artist with 30 albums and 5 Grammy nominations. He also becomes popular in Indonesia with his signatures on GRP were collectible items. “You Never Love Me The Same Way Twice” was one of my personal impression to the extraordinary rendition of  Arnold McCullun, another classy collaboration of them. With special appearance of Natasha Romanoff, or Samantha, Charlotte, or whoever .. you know her well in this video. Love is something so powerful when you find it, never want to let it go. We all encounter and experience with different relationships in lifetime and each one is special in its own way. The way I love my friends is so different from the way I feel in a romantic relationship, but still use the four big letters to categorize that feelings. “There are all kinds of LOVE in this world, but never the same twice”, quotes from Scott Fitzgerald. So Scarlett Johansson, do you think it’s possible to experience the same LOVE twice? (nDy) 

David Benoit jarang menghadirkan komposisi untuk vocal, dia begitu selektif. Salah satu rekan favorit untuk melantunkan karya langkanya itu, terpilih Arnold McCuller yg cuma kalah pamor ketimbang crooner kaliber Lou Rawls. Sedikitnya 3 lagu telah mereka buat bersama, Arnold berjasa turut membesarkan awal karir Benoit nan sulit di akhir 70an. Termasuk buatku saat pernah beli kaset gak dikenal berjudul Digits, langsung naksir dgn balada You Never Love Me The Same Way Twice. Selanjutnya baru nyimak semua album Benoit khususnya produksi GRP hingga sekarang. Maka sungguh sayang jika lagu serta kisah ini terlupakan, juga kutambahkan ilustrasi video asmara nan rumit milik Scarlett Johansson. Liku percintaannya dgn para pria dari kaliber super hero hingga kalangan jelata, demi sensasi cinta yg bukan biasa saja. Walau resiko buatku, selera dan video ini masih gak laku ditonton, plus resiko teguran hak cipta, serta tuduhan mesum. Tanpa memahami ribetnya ngedit video, makna lirik, terutama vokal yahud Arnold menghiasi musik David Benoit yg terkenal karena diimbuhi orkestra lengkap (nDy)
