“Love When You Call My Name” by Alicia Keys
Seemingly, the sentiment Alicia’s “Love When You Call My Name” revolves around is the vocalist being so enraptured by the addressee that even when he ‘calls her name’, it brings Alicia much joy.
Or more specifically, it is that “one word” especially that she loves to hear him utter. And yes, that is bit of an unheard of, and perhaps we can say overly-poetic premise to base a love song on. For at the end of the day, all it boils down to is the vocalist truly being in love, which up until this point on the playlist of Keys appears to be the theme of the album.
But so it is in the music industry, i.e. the same ideas being presented over and over, so the challenge then becomes relaying the old in a new sorta way. And this song successfully does so, as even though its motif is unorthodox, it is still abundantly clear what the vocalist is putting forth.
