"Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" as written by and Berns/burke/wexler....
We're so glad to see so many of you lovely people here tonight, and we
Would especially like to welcome all the representatives of Illinois'
Law enforcement community that have chosen to join us here in the
Palace Hotel Ballroom at this time. We sincerely hope that you all enjoy

The show and please remember people, that no matter who you are, and
Whatever you do to live, thrive and survive, there are still some
Things that make us all the same:
You, me, him, them -- everybody, people, everybody!

Everybody needs somebody
Everybody needs somebody to love
Someone to love (Someone to love)

Sweetheart to miss (Sweetheart to miss)
Sugar to kiss (Sugar to kiss)

I need you, (you) you, you
I need you, (you) you, you
I need you, (you) you, you in the morning
I need you, (you) you, you when my soul's on fire

#change: C#m, A, C#m, be
Sometimes I feel, I feel a little sad inside
When my baby mistreats me, I never never have a place to hide, I need you!

Sometimes I feel, I feel a little sad inside
When my baby mistreats me, I never never have a place to hide,
I need you, (you) you, you
I need you, (you) you, you

You know people when you do find somebody, hold that woman, hold that
Man, love him, hold him, squeeze her, please her, hold, squeeze and
Please that person, give 'em all your love, signify your feelings with
Every gentle caress, because it's so important to have that special
Somebody to hold, kiss, miss, squeeze, and please.

Everybody needs somebody
Everybody needs somebody to love
Someone to love (Someone to love)
Sweetheart to miss (Sweetheart to miss)
Sugar to kiss (Sugar to kiss)

I need you, (you) you, you
I need you, (you) you, you
I need you, (you) you, you in the morning
I need you, (you) you, you when my soul's on fire

    General CommentThe Blues Brothers were one of my idols as an early teenager, I had all the tour albums and every thing I was obsessed until I got into Nu-metal, punk etc. It was a huge shame John Belushi died because I would of loved to have seen the real thing at House of Blues. R.I.P Jake.

    General CommentThis probably one of my favorite moments from the blues brothers movie.
    The meaning of this song is pretty obvious
    Love is a universal neccesity of man across the earth It is neccessary to become psychologically stable.

    I am writing this not on;y as a member of this site, but as a true fan of the blues brothers and it is arguablly the best musical comedy in the history of mankind...
    anyone who disagrees will DIE!!!
    just kidding, just don't disagree plz ;)
