Song Lyric Sunday banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “Hurt/Pain/Agony/Suffer.”

~~~~~~~~~~

I used this song on my Nesie’s Place blog in August of last year for the theme fear. However, it struck me as even more in-line with this week’s theme.

The name Lisa Fischer may not be familiar to most but her voice has been a part of popular music for close to forty years.

Lisa was a session and back-up singer for music greats like Roberta Flack, Melba Moore, Teddy Pendergrass, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, Nine Inch Nails, and Sting. She sang back-up for Luther Vandross from 1983 until his death in 2005, and during the same period, Lisa toured internationally with The Rolling Stones (1989-2015).

It was during this time, Lisa released her only solo album, So Intense, which produced the 1991 chart-topping single, How Can I Ease the Pain.

Produced by Narada Michael Walden and Louis Biancaniello, the song spent two weeks at number-one on the U.S. Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. In 1992, How Can I Ease the Pain won a Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul Single, Female and the 1992 Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.

Fischer continues to tour and perform in pop, jazz and classical music, and along with her trio band, Grand Baton, partnered with The Seattle Symphony for a new musical program entitled Just A Kiss Away in February 2018 in which rock music anthems such as The Rolling Stones’ Gimme Shelter were recreated orchestrally.

How Can I Ease the Pain is about falling in love with a player and user and she doesn’t only fear that he’ll never stop coming around, she fears herself for not being able to turn him away.

Enjoy!
