About the song
Back in the 70’s, Bonnie Raitt succeeded become famous by blending, in an original way, folk-rock with country, blues and pop.
That’s how she gave birth to some hit songs that will never stop being on the lists of the radio stations. Among this hits we found the song Something to Talk About and we decided to create a free piano sheet.
The song Something to Talk About follows, in a great measure, the blues musical style. Besides that, the song has a rock tint, those two musical styles being a well combination.
The melody was written in 1990 by Shirley Eikhard, recorded by Bonnie Raitt and it was released on June 3 to an U.S. radio station. The song was included in the album Luck of the Draw, having three versions.
As far as that goes the lyrics, beyond them is hidden a story of the power of rumors.
The entire song talks about the human nature, always desirous for gossip. Moreover, the song talks about the influence of rumors in our life: when you hear some gossips that are connected to you, you tend to give them attention, starting to wander if there’s a little tiny piece of truth. The advice that this song promotes is that you have to give to those who spread rumors about you reasons to do that. Otherwise said, you have to give them something to talk about.
And that’s because people will never keep their mouth close as far as that goes gossiping.
The melodic line is specific of that time, having remarkable country influences over the mixture of rock and blues. This authentic musical rhythm guaranteed Bonnie’s success and helped her to become a memorable singer. Among the prices that Bonnie received is a nomination at Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, earning number five. In addition, the song earned the number twelve in the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.
Alongside with this song, Bonnie won a nomination at Grammy Awards of 1992, succeeding to earn the Best Female Pop Vocal Performance price.
This song was a source of inspiration from everyone. As an example, the producers of the movie The Guardian included an acoustic version of this song in the soundtrack of the movie.
