Rockin' Chaka / 3
"Destiny" was Chaka Khan's answer to Tina Turner's successes with 'Private Dancer', but Chaka wasn't able to connect with the listeners in the same way with her brand of Pop Rock. After all, Chaka was well know for her funkier tunes like 'Ain't Nobody', 'I Feel For You', etc. What would make her think she'd be able to capture the rock audience with songs like 'Watching The World' and 'So Close' which each have their share of crunch guitars?

On "Destiny" Khan's voice was strong as ever, and in some cases it was overly husky on tracks like 'Otherside of the World', but it somehow managed to get buried deep in the mix. Possibly for good reasons.

Khan's executive producer, Arif Mardin, was very creative with his use of various instrumental textures and mixes on 'Destiny. Sonically, 'Coltrane Dreams' was a stretch, considering most instruments in the song were samples of Chaka's own voice.

The best cuts for Khan's longtime fans would have to be the funky rave 'Tight Fit', with its warmer, jazzier feel, and the lead track 'Love of a Lifetime', a quirky funk/dance tune with lots of magic dust and swirling synths dancing around Chaka's voice.

Neither Chaka's best or worst work. "Destiny" was an attempt made for mass commercial appeal. Emotional punch, typically associated with Khan's work, is somewhat lost or exaggerated depending on the track. Creatively the collaborative effort with her longtime producer Arif Mardin had to have been a lot of fun. Grade C+.
Song "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most"

Once i was a sentimental thing
Throw my heart away each spring
Now a spring romance
Hasn't got a chance
Promised my first dance to winter
All i've got to show's a splinter
For my little fling

Spring, this year has got me feeling like a horse
That never left the post
I lay in my room
Starring up at the ceiling
Spring can really hang you up the most

Morning kiss wakes trees and flower
And to them my life
To drink a toast i walk in the park
Just to kill those lonely hours
Spring can really hang you up the most

All afternoon
Those birds tweet-a-tweet i know their tune
This is love this is it
Heard it before
And i know the score
And i decide that love is a bore
Love seem sure around the new year
Now it's april

Love is just a ghost
Spring arrived on time
But what became of you, dear
Spring can really hang you up the most
Spring can really hang you up the most

Spring is here
There's no mistaken
Robins build their nest from coast to coast
My heart tries the same
So they wont hear it breaking
Spring can really hang you up the most

College boys are riding somewhere
... tender passion there it grows
But i'm on the shelf with last years easter bonnet
Spring can really hang you up the most

Love came my way
I'm holding the last
We had our day
Now that's all in the past
Spring came along
A season of song
For love's sweet promise
But something went wrong
Doctor's once prescribed a tonic
Sulfur and molasses was the dose
Didn't help me a bit
My condition must be chronic
Spring can really hang you up the most

All alone, the party's over
Winter was a gracious host
But when you keep praying
For snow to hide the clover
Spring can really hang you up the most
