#YourMorningShot, Al Green: "I was hearing the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and I couldn t find Al Green anywhere. Nobody was writing the kind of music that I liked. I wanted to find something that was soft, that was comfortable something I could sing at the height of talking, that s comfortable but soulful, to a degree, and a little bit funky so you could kinda sway your head to it. Finally I sat down to write myself; I wrote  Tired of Being Alone,  and that s what got us going."
