Lyrics evil ways DEFAULT

Originally recorded in 1965 by Latin percussionist Willie Bobo (birth name, William Correa), “Evil Ways” was written by Bobo’s guitar player, Sonny Henry. Quite different from the version immortalized in 1969 by Santana, Bobo’s Evil Ways has a sax in place of the organ solo, and no outro at all.

There were at least two reasons for Santana covering the song. One was the fact that Willie Bobo sat in on some of Santana’s early sessions. Another was Bill Graham’s urging that Santana do the tune.

Whatever the impetus, it was certainly a serendipitous choice for Santana, as Evil Ways turned out to be the band’sfirst top 40 hit, and remains a crowd favorite nearly 40 years later. Of course, once they were in the studio, Santana put their own stamp on it.

Starting the song with a doubled guitar/organ riff, Santana picked up the tempo from the original’s laid back Cha Cha feel. The percussion is more aggressive, and the vocals, though sung “gang” style (Gregg Rolie and Carlos Santana), are missing the octaves used in Bobo’s version. Finally, the band ends by going into a double-time rhythm with Carlos wailing over the top.

Harmonically, it’s easy to see why the song was such a good fit for Carlos Santana. Using only three chords — with the 5th (“D”) appearing only three times during the entire song — Evil Ways epitomizes the quintessential Dorian mode that is Carlos’ trademark scale. Its two main chords, G minor and C major, are basically the same as Oye Como Va, down a whole step. (Note: Actually, to record the riffs interspersed into the verse, Carlos tuned his guitar down a whole step. That way, he could use open strings as if playing in “A,” but have the riffs come out in the key of “G.”)

Although the song was not a hit for Willie Bobo, it’s obvious why Santana’s Evil Ways was such a chart topper. Its exuberant rhythmic feel, accessible vocals, and distinctive organ and guitar solos made it irrestible to a music-listening public that had never heard these elements combined before.

Evil Ways Lyrics

Santana by santana album

You’ve got to change your evil ways, baby
Before I stop loving you
You’ve got to change, baby
And every word that I say, it’s true
You’ve got me running and hiding, all over town
You’ve got me sneaking and peeping, and running you down
This can’t go on,
Lord knows you got to change, baby

When I come home, baby

My house is dark and my pots are cold
You’re hanging round, baby
With Jean and Joan and a who knows who
I’m getting tired of waiting and fooling around
I’ll find somebody, who won’t make me feel like a clown
This can’t go on,
Lord knows you got to change

Evil ways lyrics

Evil Ways

1970 single by Santana

"Evil Ways" is a song made famous by Mexican-American rock band Santana from their 1969 self-titled debut album. It was written by Clarence "Sonny" Henry and originally recorded by jazz percussionist Willie Bobo on his 1967 album Bobo Motion. Alongside Santana's release in 1969, "Evil Ways" was also recorded by the band The Village Callers.[1] The lyrics of the song are written in simple verse form.[2]

Released as a single in late 1969, it became Santana's first top 40 and top 10 hit in the US, peaking at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of March 21, 1970. Gregg Rolie performs the lead vocals and plays a Hammond organsolo in the middle section. The double-timecoda includes a guitar solo performed by Carlos Santana, who also does the backing vocals.

Notable covers and samples[edit]

Johnny Mathis released the song as a single in 1970. It made the Cash Box survey at number 118, and also appeared on MOR music surveys in Billboard (#30)[3] and Record World.

Jazz saxophonist Stanley Turrentine covered the song as a smooth jazz fusion on his album The Man with the Sad Face, released in 1976.

Latin rapper Mellow Man Ace sampled this track and used it as the main melody for his single "Mentirosa" (1989).

Filipino rapper RapAsia sampled this track and used it as the main melody for his Tagalog single "Hoy! Tsismosa" (1991) for the self-titled album of the same name. It was released in the Philippines by Viva Records.

Alternative rock jam band Rusted Root performed "Evil Ways" on the soundtrack of the 1995 film Home for the Holidays.

Alex Gimeno sampled the riff from "Evil Ways" in his track "Funky Bikini" (1999) from his musical project titled Ursula 1000.

The song was used in the 2001 film The Fast and the Furious, and named in the credits.

Erroneous credit[edit]

On first pressings of both Santana's debut album and the single release, the songwriting credit was given to Jimmie Zack. Zack was a minor rockabilly artist out of the Midwest who recorded a song with the same title in 1960, credited as Jimmie Zack and the Blues Rockers, however, it was not the same song as recorded by Santana.

Now discussing:

Having rolled a couple of circles around the city, I invited her to watch the sunset in the countryside, because there was. A wonderful view from the hills. Arriving at the place, we climbed the hill and hugging just talked. How beautiful the sunset in summer is.
