#TBW #throwbackweekend Erykah Badu On & On

エリカ・バドゥ(Erykah Badu、1971年2月26日 - )はアメリカ合衆国テキサス州ダラス出身のミュージシャン。ヒップホップやR&Bにジャズを融合させたスタイル(ネオ・ソウル)で知られている。映画を学ぶ為にルイジアナ州のグランブリング州立大学(英語版)の黒人史カレッジに通った。その後完全に音楽へ集中する為に大学を辞め、サウス・ダラス文化センターで子どもに演劇・ダンスを教えたりと、いくつか仕事を掛け持ちした。
1997年2月にデビュー・アルバム『バドゥイズム』発表。全米2位のヒットとなり、グラミー賞ベストR&Bアルバム部門や、ソウル・トレイン・ミュージック・アワードのR&B/ソウル・アルバム(女性)部門等を受賞。
音楽的にマクスウェル、ディアンジェロなどとネオ・ソウル(ニュー・ソウル(Nu soul))と呼ばれることもあり、詩の面ではビリー・ホリデイに例えられることがある。またルーツ・ロック(レゲエ)のバーニング・スピアと共演するなど、音楽的バックグラウンドは非常に豊富である。都会的感性できわめて深い自己内面を歌ったエリカ・バドゥの詩は、聴く者に感情的な葛藤をもたらすことが多いとされる。
2004年-2005年には日本の歌手のMISIAとコラボレートし、「Everything」をカバーしたり、MISIAのアルバム「MARS&ROSES」に参加。また愛知万博でジョイントライブを行った。
2006年には「ブラック・アイド・ピーズ」のウィル・アイ・アムとともに、セルジオ・メンデスのアルバム「Timeless」への楽曲提供を行った。また、音楽だけでなく俳優として『サイダーハウス・ルール』や『ブルース・ブラザース2000』などの映画にも出演している。
2010年、ミュージックビデオの撮影で、ジョン・F・ケネディが1963年に暗殺された現場で全裸になるという内容の撮影を行い、ダラス警察から訴追された。

LYRICS

"On And On"

Oh my my my
I'm feeling high
My moneys gone
I'm all alone
to much oooh
The world is turnin'
Oh what a day
What a day what a day

Peace and blessings manifest with every lesson learn,
If your knowledge were your wealth then it would be well earned

If we were made in his image then call us by our names
Most intellects do not believe in god but the fear is just the same

Oh on and on and on and on (my cypher keeps moving like a rollin stone)
Whew on and on and on and on (all night till the break of dawn)
I go on and on and on and on (my cypher keeps moving like a rollin stone)
Ohh on and on and on and on (godamnit imma sing my song)

I was born under water with 3 dollars and 6 dimes
Yeah you might laugh 'cause you did not do your math

Like 1.. 2..3.
Damn, yall feel that? Oh...
1.. 2..3.
The world keeps turning
Oh what a day what a day what a day

The man that knows something knows that he knows nothing at all
Does it seem colder in your summer time and hotter in your fall

If we were made in his image then call us by our names
Most intellects do not believe in god but the fear is just the same

Oh on and on and on and on (my cypher keeps moving like a rollin stone)
Whew on and on and on and on (all night till the break of dawn)
I go on and on and on and on (my cypher keeps moving like a rollin stone)
Ohh on and on and on and on (mad props to the guy ja bone)

I am feeling kinda hungry 'cause my high is coming down
Don't feed me yours 'cause your food does not endure
I think i need a cup of tea, the world keeps burnin'
Oh what a day, what a day what a day

Your rushin into destruction 'cause you don't have nothin' left
The mothership can't save you so your ass is gonna' get left
If we were made in his image then call us by our names
Most intellects do not believe in god but the fear is just the same

Oh on and on and on and on (my cypher keeps moving like a rollin stone)
On and on and on and on (u cant fuk with me so jus leave me alone)
Ooh ooh wee on and on and on and on (my cypher keeps moving like a rollin stone)
On and on and on and on (.. and on n on)
