Song of the Day: All Of The Lights by Kanye West

I’m going to say today, KW’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album of 2010 is his last truly great, great, great album! So yeah, both Yeezus of 2013 and The Life Of Pablo of 2016 had moments of greatest but not from start to finish like that one. Plus he’s totally lost me on the whole born-again Christian gospel rap thing he’s doing right now, sorry to say! Call me wrong, if you like tooo? You might hate all his stuff from word go but do miss the old Kanye. I guess, he’s had just a few he’s lost it times in his career but for me it’s when he gone religionist where he lost me, if anyone cares what I have to say about it? He’s yet another big huge artist I’ve picked for my SOTD posts this year so let’s call it another short post because what else can I say? Oh yeah, the All Of The Lights lyrics are:

All of the lights (all of the lights)
(Lights, lights) all of the lights
Turn up the lights in here baby
Extra bright, I want y’all to see this
Turn up the lights in here, baby
You know what I need
Want you to see everything
Want you to see all of the lights
Fast cars, shooting stars
(All of the lights, all of the lights)
Until it’s Vegas everywhere we are
(All of the lights)
If you want it you can get it for the rest of your life
If you want it you can get it for the rest of your life
Something wrong
I hold my head
M.j. Gone, our nigga dead!
I slapped my girl, she called the feds
I did that time and spent that bread
I’m heading home, I’m almost there
I’m on my way, headed up the stairs
To my surprise, a nigga replacing me
I had to take ’em to that ghetto university (all of the lights)
Cop lights, flashlights, spotlights
Strobe lights, street lights
(All of the lights, all of the lights)
Fast life, drug life
Thug life, rock life
Every night (all of the lights)
Turn up the lights in here, baby
Extra bright, I want y’all to see this
Turn up the lights in here, baby
You know what I need, want you to see everything
Want you to see all of the lights
Restraining order
Can’t see my daughter
Her mother, brother, grandmother hate me in that order
Public visitation
We met at Borders
Told her she take me back
I’ll be more supportive
I made mistakes
I bumped my head
Courts suck me dry
I spent that bread
She need her daddy
Baby please,
Can’t let her grow up in that ghetto university (all of the lights)
Cop lights, flash lights, spot lights
Strobe lights, street lights
(All of the lights, all of the lights)
Fast life, drug life
Thug life, rock life
Every night (all of the lights)
Turn up the lights in here, baby
Extra bright, I want y’all to see this
Turn up the lights in here, baby
You know what I need, want you to see everything
Want you to see all of the lights
Getting mine, baby
Gotta let these niggas know, yeah
Get right, ay
You should go and get your own
Getting mine, baby
Gotta let these niggas know, yeah
Get right, ay
You should go and get your own
Unemployment line, credit card declined
Did I not mention I was about to lose my mind? (My mind, my mind, my mind)
And also was about to do that line (line, line, line)
Okay, okay, you know we going all the way this time (time)
We going all the way this time (time)
We going all the way this time
We going all the way this time
We going all the way this time
Turn up the lights in here, baby
Extra bright, I want y’all to see this
Turn up the lights in here, baby
You know what I need, want you to see everything
Want you to see all of the lights
Whoa, whoa, oh
I tried to tell you but all I could say is oh
Whoa, whoa, oh
I tried to tell you but all I could say is oh
Whoa, whoa, oh
I tried to tell you but all I could say is oh
Whoa, whoa, oh
I tried to tell you but all I could say

It’s KW on top of a cop car back in 2010!

Cheers! 🙂

  1. Rihanna makes this song more palatable, but I cannot stand Kanye West. Never cared for him from day one; I fully realize I’m in the minority, but I just don’t see the ‘brilliance’ that 99% of everyone else does. And after all his “Yeezus” delusions of grandeur bullshit, born-again religiosity (I’m an Atheist), and jumping on the Trump MAGA train only further added to my overall dislike of him.

    1. oh yeah, fair call about everything you say! Rihanna rocks so makes this song even better! I’m an Atheism too so maybe, that’s the main reason to dislike his born-again Jesus is king BS but yeah, wearing that red hat and everything was the last straw for me which I didn’t say in my post above but maybe, should have? Cheers mate 🙂
