Awhile back Bono1982 heard Daryl Hall and said the voice reminded him of mine. It made sense, Daryl Hall was a white guy that idolized David Ruffin and a lot of similar singers general could be counted amongst his influences.

 

I always liked this song, so I wanted to sing it anyway, but now we get to test the theory:

I wasn't really imitating him. I was singing with more aggression and bluesier and he sang with more polish (he's more advanced than I am, imo), but I think I can hear it. My voice might be a little heavier but I think there is something there. What do you guys think?  :D

I never heard you with that much power before. I like it. Actually have heard a few 80's singers attack in that way.

 

That style of singing for me came from Ruffin. My interpretation of the song was about having to say 'NO' about something you love potentially to someone you love. 

 

Be it a loved one, an artistic project, or a social or business offer. It could be anything really, but ultimately having the strength to say no, in the midst of emotional conflict, where you might feel pressure to say yes.

That's where the power comes into play. :D

These days, Daryl sings with a more blues sound, and will sing back up on his own song. So, you are approaching closer. Here is C Lo taking the lead. I love this show and all the guests he has had on there.
