Rufus - Any Love Lyrics

You go out every night as a single
But you don't really know what to do
You see someone that you'd like to mingle
And imagine that she is waiting for you

Any love that you feel
Is real
Any time that you use love
You lose love

There is no certain crowd that you run with

But your passions they never run thin
You say 'hi', they say 'hi' and it's done with
Still you don't really love from deep within


Batted eyes and bitter tears
Price you pay for all the years
Of holding back what's deep inside
And living with a hell of a lot of lies

    27 dumb asses don't now any love

  44. gerald deyounge

    Genius composition and vocal supremacy

  45. carl grant

    I can't get enough of this song

  46. Kelvin Anderson

    so much wonderful music bangin hard in 1979 . fort hood texas. just before i was to go to germany.this album came . i really didnot want to leave fort hood. but i had to go.


    I don't know why but everytime i hear this song i am reminded of Brainstorm song called "Loving Is My Game" sung by Ms. Belita Woods.

    Adam Christopher

    A CHOSEN VESSEL like that song!

    Adam Christopher

    A CHOSEN VESSEL I like that song


    I totally agree

  48. Conrad Kirnon


  49. Jerry Tasker

    Everytime I play my system, this is one of the tunes sitting by to pop in.

  50. positiveposition

    This has that positive anthem effect. I miss the organic momentum building bridges and then the crescendo when the dance floor explodes. Song of that era were designed with this and didn't need a deejay to manufacture that effect. Wow Chaka is still my number one screamin diva. No other voice like hers.

  51. sandra basket

    Oh yeah!!!

  52. Hankster

    I had this album

  53. eric anderson


    Kirmet Lyons

    eric anderson real vocals

  54. eric anderson

    all you youngun's this is MUSIC

  55. positiveposition

    Alls I can say Chaka does it for me from sun up to sun down!
    This cut really moves me...the melody and chorus is groovin. The band Rufus was tight and that Tony Maiden can stand blow next to Miss Chaka and take on that screamin diva so he's alright with me.

  56. Big Shark

    Chaka is life.

  57. Gregory Hollenquest

    i remember when I bought this album
    ....oh Chaka

  58. Terrance Black

    Throwback Tuesday!

  59. michael morgan

    I always liked Chaka but when this came I  fell in love with her.First time I saw her live was at the Paradise Garage in nyc

    michael morgan

    we never went to 54

    Kevin Lopez

    +Braighdan Silas
    Very true. 54 was the worst. Lightning and DJ was the worst. Went straight to the Garage . My late brother was spinning that night with Larry.

    Tasha Thomas

    taking it back :)

    Joan Waipouri

    She's my favourite female artist of my time anyway, love this album and others that her and rufus have put out...

  60. Phyllis Foster

    StillDre 61 one of the best things about her all "natural beauty" she really influenced me with that.. love her

    StillDre 61

    @Dee Graves The range (of her voice) Chaka had at a very young age....God-given And like you said,"natural beauty",you could feel hers inside and out..........Classic/Class p.s. Heaven Bound same LP

  77. Kevin Lopez

    The memories of Paradise Garage, The Loft, The Ice Palace and Ones. The wonders of Chaka's voice still resonates deeply. What memories of this song, then leading to her solo career. OMG!!

    Kevin Lopez

    That's very true! ! Especially Better Days!

  78. Lynn Berna


  79. ordonize holmes

    Right after quincy produced mj off the wall

    ordonize holmes

    Oki was born in the 80s


    Yep you're right. I had all those albums plus The Whispers self titled album & Shalamar-"Big Fun" album, Prince self titled album, Funkeldelic-"Uncle Jam Wants You", Rick James-"Fire It Up", & Natalie Cole and Peabo Bryson duet album-"We;re The Best Of Friends". An awesome & memorable December 1979 when R&B was really kicking.

  80. GIZMO G

    I totally enjoy Chaka Khan's music , specially this hit

  81. T. Price

    This clearly a Quincy Jones production!

    ordonize holmes

    The recording spring and summer 1979 at westlake studio in l.a and bruce swedien engenier


    Signature Q

    Rodney Sands

    @ordonize holmes that's right 😎

  82. Kevin Larner

    class song will stand the test of time gets me every time i here it great days

  83. Honor Thy Melanin

    K109 The Studio

  84. MsCharlieBrown78 (Charlie Rae)

    Totally awesome. It has Quincy Jones written all over it. Was Rod Temperton & Louis Jonson involved in this particular song by any chance? I know they were pivotal in many of Jones' productions of this era.

    MsCharlieBrown78 (Charlie Rae)

    @Sky Pilot Hi Sky :)

    Sky Pilot

    How you doing and good to hear from you. How are things going for you, hope you're having a great summer, let's talk so more...Peace and Love...

    MsCharlieBrown78 (Charlie Rae)

    @Sky Pilot Morning. I'm great thanks, you ok? Yes, were finally getting summer here in the UK - about time really and I hope it holds up!..  :)) 

    Marvin G. Harden

    MsCharlieBrown78 (Charlie Rae) yes they are playing on it.

    jerome Jackson

    This song was written by David "Hawk wolinski" keyboards for Rufus, the driving force behind most of their songs. He also wrote "ain't nobody", "Do you love what you feel" And many more. He's a bad White !!!!!

  85. njplr

    OMFG I forgot all about this one, and I used to LIVE for it. I am getting chills all over, remembering how GLORIOUS this sounded at 84 KIng. Sweet Jesus, did we ever have FUN. These kids today, well, they just don't make songs like this, and haven't for a long time. Chaka, you were THE VOICE.

    Virgil Wyatt

    IKR!! I almost forgot about this one, too! This IS M U S I C!!

  90. Anne Hamilton

    A Great Classic........Chaka Khan & Rufus were the real deal, back in the days!

  91. Markos Andronikos

    Get up from your chair and dance.!!!

  92. gerald deyounge

    Incomparable vocals by Ms. CK unmatched. To have an instrument that is so unique in music is unimaginable, but Chaka does... the voice of many centuries to come.
