PATRICK SIMMONS (DOOBIE BROTHERS)

"I have this subjective way of listening to music when there are lyrics, and singing involved. I love songs, especially when they’re good ones. When they’re performed really well, with incredible vocals, a steamy rhythm section, and other musicians who can really play, and sing their asses off, count me in! When I haven’t heard Jodi Siegel’s album, Wild Hearts, in a while, and I put it on, all I can think is, “Where have you been?” Man I love this record! The songs are so soulful, in the pocket, and somehow speak directly to the heart. Every damn song has a story to tell, and lessons for us to learn. If you just put it on, and let it move from song to song, you come out at the end, a little more contented, fulfilled, and certain about the future. Her vocal delivery is just so cool, and is it an illusion, or does her voice keep getting better, and better as the album plays? It’s hard not to make comparisons to other artists one might be familiar with; Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Al Green, Billie Holiday, these are a few that come to mind. There are, to me, bits of these artists sprinkled here, and there throughout the songs, and arrangements. But, Jodi makes this all hers, she owns it, and every time I hear it, I’m totally hooked! Oh, and did I say she can play the hell out of a guitar? Take a listen, you won’t be sorry my friend."

MARIA MULDAUR (MULTIPLE AWARD WINNING SINGER AND ENTERTAINER)

" I'm a long time a fan of Jodi Siegel's music~ Her singing has such a pleasing quality ... a soulful smokey voice & a smooth easy delivery, a bit reminiscent of Bonnie Raitt, but with her own unique brand of natural down-home grit ~ Add to that her soulful, insightful (& very prolific!) songwriting, (I've recorded several of her songs myself) her wonderful guitar playing, & general all-around funky rootsy musical sensibilities, and one is left to wonder why she is still an underground "best kept secret", much loved & respected by many of her illustrious musical peers, & not yet a household name!~Hopefully her long anticipated latest album WILD HEARTS will help rectify that situation!~ Jodi & her band of stellar musicians perfectly capture that irresistible old-school, percolatin' oh-so-funky Memphis groove on several of the tunes & I find myself playing them over & over again as I drive down the road~ Other tunes on the album feature Jodi's more introspective songwriting style, & accompanied by her own very tasty acoustic guitar playing, she delivers her lyrics in a quiet, pensive wistful way that draws you in & is very affective~ All in all, Jodi Siegel's WiILD HEARTS  is bound to play its way into your heart & into  heavy rotation on your playlist!~ This album was definitely worth waiting for!~"

TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING  
Jodi Siegel – Blue Tomato Music 
Copyright 2020 – All Rights Reserved 

I’VE HEARD IT SAID LIVING TO EXCESS IS FLIRTIN’ WITH DISASTER    
FLYING UNRESTRAINED IS GONNA LEAVE YOU BURNED AND BATTERED  
BUT SOME TEMPTATIONS ARE SO AMAZIN’ THEY’RE A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN NOTHING 
AND WHEN YA CROSS THAT LINE IT’S A REAL GOOD TIME 
 TO GET DOWN TO SOME OVERINDULGING 
A LITTLE BIT MIGHT GO A LONG WAY 
BUT WHEN YOU LOVE SOMETHING MORE EVERY DAY THEN 
  
   
CHORUS 
TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING CAN BE WONDERFUL (2X) 
COMING TRUE IF THAT GOOD THING, THAT GOOD THING IS YOU 

EVERYBODY CRAVE A SUPER-SIZE SLICE OF PIE NOW AND AGAIN 
BUT YOU GOTTA HOLD OUT FOR THAT SPECIAL KIND 
OR ELSE IT’S MORE OR LESS THE SAME ‘OL THANG 
WILLPOWER MIGHT HELP YOU STOP 
BUT WHEN YOUR HEART FALLS OVER THE TOP THEN 
  
CHORUS 
TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING CAN BE WONDERFUL (2X) 
OH IT’S SO WONDERFUL, CUZ TOO MUCH   

 (BRIDGE)  
MODERATION GOES ASTRAY 
WHEN IT HOLDS BACK YOUR HEART  
FROM GETTING CARRIED AWAY 

A LITTLE BIT MIGHT GO A LONG WAY 
BUT WHEN YOU LOVE SOMETHING MORE EVERY DAY THEN 

(CHORUS)

THIS AIN’T LOVE  
Jodi Siegel – Blue Tomato Music 
Copyright 2020 – All Rights Reserved 

THIS AIN’T LOBSTER, OR FILET MIGNON 
AND THIS AIN’T NO QUEEN MARY THAT WE’RE SAILING ON 
BUT EVEN IF WE AIN’T SITTIN’ IN FIRST CLASS 
THIS COULD BE BEST THAT WE EVER HAD, BUT RIGHT NOW  

(CHORUS) IT AIN’T LOVE BUT IT AIN’T BAD 
               THIS AIN’T LOVE, BUT IT AIN’T BAD 

THIS AIN’T CHAMPAGNE OR CAVIAR 
AND BEVERLY HILLS HONEY AIN’T WHERE WE ARE 
BUT SOME THINGS YOU CAN’T THROW MONEY AT 
SO LET’S NOT DISCOUNT THIS GOOD THING WE HAVE 
IT AIN’T LOVE, BUT IT AIN’T BAD 
IT AIN’T LOVE YET, BUT IT AIN’T BAD 
  
(BRIDGE) OH BABY WHAT’S THE HURRY 
IT’S TOO EARLY TO CALL THIS LOVE 
OH BUT IF WE TAKE IT AS IT COMES 
INSTEAD OF ON THE RUN 
GETTING THERE IS TWICE THE FUN 

I AIN’T NO PRINCESS, BUT YOU AIN’T NO KING 
WE AIN’T CRUISIN’ TO THE PALACE IN A LIMOUSINE 
BUT THE CHEAP SEATS GET THERE JUST AS FAST 
SO LET’S ENJOY THE RIDE LONG AS LONG AS IT LASTS, EVEN IF   

(CHORUS) 
IT AIN’T LOVE BUT IT AIN’T BAD 
THIS AIN’T LOVE, BUT IT AIN’T BAD 
(OOH COME A LITTLE CLOSER) 
THIS AIN’T LOVE, BUT IT AIN’T BAD 
(LET’S TAKE IT NICE AND SLOW BABY) 
THIS AIN’T LOVE, BUT IT AIN’T BAD…..

WILD HEARTS

THIS WORLD KEEPS TRYING TO BRING ME DOWN 
BUT I AIN’T LISTENING TO THOSE CRAZY SOUNDS 
GOT MY OWN FREQUENCY GOT MY OWN MOVES 
AIN’T NOBODY GONNA MESS WITH MY GROOVE 

(CHORUS) 
WILD HEARTS CAN’T BE BROKEN 
A WILD HEART IT BEATS INSIDE OF ME                            
WILD HEARTS NEED TO BE FREE 

SEE I WASN’T MADE IN NO ASSEMBLY LINE 
I MIGHT HAVE AN ATTITUDE BUT AT LEAST IT’S MINE 
BUT I’LL KEEP TRYING TO MEET YOU, I’LL EVEN MEET YOU HALFWAY 
BUT PUSH ME TOO FAR AND I DON’T WANNA PLAY 

CHORUS 
WILD HEARTS CAN’T BE BROKEN 
A WILD HEART IT BEATS INSIDE OF ME                            
WILD HEARTS NEED TO BE FREE 

(BRIDGE)  
FREE TO BE WHO EVER I WANNA BE 
WHATEVER IS CALLING ME 

GOT NOTHING TO LOSE BUT EVERYTHING TO GAIN 
SPIRIT LIKE MINE CAN’T BE TAMED  

WILD HEARTS CAN’T BE BROKEN 
A WILD HEART IT BEATS INSIDE OF ME   
WILD HEARTS KEEP ON GROWIN’ 
A WILD HEART IT BEATS INSIDE OF ME                                                  
WILD HEARTS OH, NEED TO BE FREE

BBQ

WELL I PUNCH THE CLOCK NINE TO FIVE 
AND WHEN THE WEEKEND COME  
IT’S IN THE NICK OF TIME 
I NEED SOME SLOW COMFORT 
NOT FAST DRIVE THROUGH 
CUZ I NEVER GET THE BLUES WHEN I’M EATING BBQ 

I MIGHT BE A DAY LATE A DOLLAR SHORT 
BUT I’M OVERFLOWING IN CULINARY SUPPORT 
SO BARTENDER PASS THE HOT SAUCE TOO 
CUZ I NEVER GET THE BLUES WHEN I’M EATING BBQ 

(BRIDGE) 
OH PASS THE MACARONI AND CHEESE, 
BEANS AND GREENS 
COLE SLAW, CORN BREAD AND HOT LINKS 
SHRIMP, CHICKEN, BABY BACK RIBS 
SURE MAKE ME HAPPY WHEN THEY CROSS MY LIPS 
  

SO GET ME OFF THIS FREEWAY TRAFFIC JAM  
SO I CAN CRUISE WITH BRISKET  
AND CANDIED YAMS 
NO DEL TACO GONNA DO 
CUZ I NEVER GET THE BLUES WHEN I’M EATING BBQ

 STAND FOR SOMETHING  
Jodi Siegel – Blue Tomato Music 
Copyright 2020– All Rights Reserved  

SOME FOLKS RIDE THE FENCE PLAYING HARD TO GET 
INDECISIVELY POLITICALLY CORRECT  
DODGING CONFRONTATION ‘BOUT RACE OR RELIGION  
BACKING UP FROM ANY HEAD ON COLLISION  
BUT IT’S ALL THE SAME IN LOVE AND WAR 
YOU’VE GOT TO BE PRESENT TO BE ACCOUNTED FOR 
  

(CHORUS)  
IF YOU DON’T STAND FOR SOMETHING 
YOU’LL FALL FOR ANYTHING 
DON’T HANG AROUND LIKE A PUPPET ON A STRING 
MEAN WHAT YOU SAY, SAY WHAT YOU MEAN 
IF YOU DON’T STAND FOR SOMETHING  
YOU’LL FALL FOR ANYTHING 

I HAD AN UNCOMMITTED RELATIONSHIP 
HE WAS MY INDIFFERENT GUY WITH BENEFITS 
I LET IT GO ON AND ON SUCH A LONG TIME 
AS HIS AVAILABLE TWENTY FOUR HOUR HOT-LINE 
HE WAS MY ONLY ONE, I WAS HIS RESERVE  
A CHEAP DATE TILL I FOUND WHAT MY LOVE DESERVED 

CHORUS 
IF YOU DON’T STAND FOR SOMETHING 
YOU’LL FALL FOR ANYTHING 
DON’T HANG AROUND LIKE A PUPPET ON A STRING 
MEAN WHAT YOU SAY, SAY WHAT YOU MEAN 
IF YOU DON’T STAND FOR SOMETHING  
YOU’LL FALL FOR ANYTHING 

BRIDGE 
DON’T LET SURRENDER BE YOUR ONLY OPTION OR 
ERR ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION, BABY 
TURN THE CORNER WITH SOME DEVIL MAY CARE BE SOMEBODY WHO WILL DARE TO BE DIFFERENT

IF IT AIN’T ONE THING

(CHORUS)

NOW IF IT AIN’T ONE THING IT’S TWO

AND IF IT AIN’T TWO THINGS IT’S FOUR

AND IF IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

OH TELL ME WHY DO YOU WANT MORE

‘CUZ THERE’S NOTHING SUBTLE ‘BOUT LOVE TROUBLE

IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL TWICE AS EMPTY AND BLUE

SO WHEN A COUPLE FEELS TOO FEW

THEN IT AIN’T ONE THING IT’S TWO

 

THE WISEST OF MEN HAVE THE MOST FOOLISH HEARTS

THEY’LL KEEP TRYIN’ TO WIN WHAT’S NOT IN THE CARDS

IF THEY CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT THAT ONE IN A CROWD

THEN CLOSE ENOUGH IS FAR APART,

 

(CHORUS)

SO IF IT AIN’T ONE THING IT’S TWO

AND IF IT AIN’T TWO THINGS IT’S FOUR

AND IF IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

OH TELL ME WHY DO YOU WANT MORE

‘CUZ THERE’S NOTHING SUBTLE ‘BOUT LOVE TROUBLE

IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL TWICE AS EMPTY AND BLUE

SO WHEN A COUPLE FEELS TOO FEW

THEN IT AIN’T ONE THING IT’S TWO

 

WHAT IS IT ABOUT LOVE AND AFFECTION

MAKES US SETTLE FOR LESS AND CALL IT PERFECTION

TILL AS GOOD AS IT GETS MEANS WE’RE JUST SECOND BEST

AS A RULE NO EXCEPTION

 

(CHORUS)

SO IF IT AIN’T ONE THING IT’S TWO

AND IF IT AIN’T TWO THINGS IT’S FOUR

AND IF IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

OH TELL ME WHY DO YOU WANT MORE

‘CUZ THERE’S NOTHING SUBTLE ‘BOUT LOVE TROUBLE

IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL TWICE AS EMPTY AND BLUE

SO WHEN A COUPLE FEELS TOO FEW

THEN IT AIN’T ONE THING IT’S TWO

YEA WHEN A COUPLE FEELS TOO FEW

THEN IT AIN’T ONE THING IT’S TWO
