about

When love isn't right, we get 'out of joint'. While these songs may seem very personal, the themes they touch on are universal. We are connected by our shared experiences, just like our muscle joints connect our limbs. These were my joints, and now i'm sending them out into the world. I hope that they help you like they've helped me

Love Joints is the debut album from Danny G & the Major 7ths.

"The album is a passionate, personal album with wonderful harmonies that shows a clear appreciation for the Soul Masters. From track one to finish, you’ll groove and fall in love with this joint." - BamaLoveSoul.com

"He is an innately talented soul musician. Danny tackles complex musical motifs and techniques to create a soulful sound that grooves like nothing else on the Irish music scene. Mr G’s band provides the perfect complement to his motown purr; his backing vocalists are a throwback to the era of Aretha and Marvin" - InDublin.ie

"Danny G & The Major 7ths are a tight outfit, and lord knows we need some of their sugar in our bowls" - Remy's Music & Film Blog

"Tracks we like: 'Never Trust Your Heart', 'Only Me'" - Grown Folks Music

"Erkenntnis, dass wir es hier mit einem der bis dato sträflich überhörten Soul-Perlen der vergangenen Saison zu tun haben. Aber noch ist es ja nicht zum spät – also einschalten!" - sonicsoulreviews.com

Track Name: Be With You
Wanna be with you, wanna be with you, we can make it through, baby

I've been guilty, of confusing my head and my heart. I fall too easily. Now I know, just like you did, right from the start, we could never be.

Still I can't help feeling so blue

It's unhealthy but it's worse to be apart.

Wanna be with you, wanna be with you, we can make it through, baby

So if you're giving me the option of being with you or another baby, you know I'd choose you. Wanna keep loving you baby. Understand.

What did you expect? When I look at you looking at me, looking at you. Now what we gonna do about it? If we allow it. Hoping to be stronger than I was before I first met you,

I was happy and secure.

Now I'm blinded by your light. All I can see is you.

So if you're giving me the option baby, of being with you or another baby. You know i'd choose you. Wanna keep loving you baby. Understand.

We can make it all the way. I know. Don't doubt it baby..

Wanna be with you. Wanna be with you. We can make it through baby
Track Name: Sweet Lies
Your eyes were far away, told me to come back another day. But I was so enchanted with you. It's everything you do and your body too makes me so confused. Is this love? No it's just a product of your lies

Sweet lies, why'd you tell me sweet lies

Giving it up all over the place. I know you're just trying to save face. You were hurt and I was wrong, keeps going on and on. But I've been so good lately, just want you back in my arms baby. Reminiscing how we used to dance, once there was a chance. Not since your lies

Sweet lies, why'd you tell me sweet lies

Why'd you lie to me when you can tell the truth? I know it's strange but it's been done before. No more suspicion or games. What's more, it's different. It's changed. Show yourself to the world. We'd be glad to have you. We'd be glad to have you. We'd be glad

Why'd you have to lie to me?
Track Name: Never Trust Your Heart
It's been wrong before. Should've ignored it. But it beats in my chest, says it always knows best

If I'd never met you I wouldn't have to try to forget you. Lets me know I'm alive. But it hurts inside

Never trust your heart. I've been a fool from the start

Don't trust your heart, no its not so smart. But it thumps like a drum, and gets me in trouble again and again

And I don't know what to do

Nothing left to say. Head says go, heart says stay. Oh to be like a stone, standing strong on my own

Never trust your heart. I've been a fool from the start
Track Name: In Love / Unrequited
I don't like feeling this insecurity. Don't enjoy the effect you have on me. Now I'm lost again. Could it be I'm getting soft or could it be that I'm in love with you?

My ship is at sea. This unfamiliar feeling it's called jealousy. I'm not ready yet, that's that you said but you can't see that I'm in love with you

You want me around, but at a distance and it's getting me down. There's a thing going on. With who? For how long? Does he know that I'm in love with you?

My head is a mess. Every day I trust myself less and less. Way to break a man. Can you understand why I'm blue? See, I'm in love with you

I'll try forget about you but I still see you whatever I do. I'll distract myself with somebody else and I won't say that I'm in love with you

You know what's in store. End in tears well how come you're so sure? I'll be true to you. What've I gotta do to prove that I'm in love with you

My cover is blown. Tried to be cool but now I'm just alone. Well the irony's not lost on me that i'm still free but I'm in love with you

Can't you see what I see? Just open your eyes. Am I blind in fantasy? Or is it in my mind? You should be beside me. Won't you let me come inside? Always there to remind me that I'm in love with you

I'm going insane. See in crazy about you, thought you felt the same. What a fool am I! Still we've got to try. Maybe you could fall in love with me

Did it ever cross your mind?

Still we've got to try

Maybe you could fall in love with me
Track Name: GTFO (feat. Ophelia MC)
First of all I wanna say thanks to you baby. You showed me I could love again. And I'm grateful, yes I'm thankful. See you move me like no other can. But your heart lies with another man

You hang up the phone when I call. Don't pick me up when I fall. Well you know I'm sweet on you babe, so you can do what you like. Get the fuck out

Get the fuck out of my life, get the fuck out.

You don't know what you mean to me... No! Get out!

She's not the best, she's not the worst. Won't be the last, wasn't the first. Take it on the chin, spend time with yourself. Find peace within, not from someone else. But don't let it bring you down. No, I won't let it bring me down

No empathy, just ridicule. You play the queen, I play the fool. It's over now, that's understood. You can't see the trees, won't see the wood. Don't care if your intentions are good. I'm asking you politely if you could stop messing me around. Get the fuck out

Get the fuck out of my life, get the fuck out

Okay I know you take me for granted. But I keep coming back, I don't understand it. What can I do to be a man? I must be strong and stick to my plan,

To hang up the phone when you call. I won't pick you up when you fall. Well you know I'm sweet in you babe. Still, I'm gonna do what I like. Get the fuck out.

Get the fuck out of my life, get the fuck out

You've been making me feel so bad. So bad
Track Name: If You Were Mine
I wonder what's the attraction. Is it better than being alone? Why not take positive action? Go get a love of your own. No, you shouldn't be someone's girl on the side. Losing your pride in a fantasy, just like me

I need to reach a conclusion. I can't keep living this way. Seems like love's an illusion. Seems like I don't have a say. Sometimes you want me and sometimes you don't. Wish that you would but I know you won't. That's when tears fall

But if you were mine, I wouldn't keep you a secret. Wouldn't keep you hidden away. I wonder if you believe it. Doesn't have to be this way. No, you shouldn't be someone's girl on the side. Losing your pride in a fantasy, just like me

I used to think I was always right. Or is it that i'm too proud? Too busy digging the sunlight, I didn't notice the cloud. Well I used to be sure but now just confused. You start each day in a different mood. Tell me what to do

You can tell me it's over. But I know that's no guarantee. I need to know you're my baby. My baby's only with me. Maybe you need to be sad to be glad, still holding on to a love you once had. That's when tears fall

But if you were mine..

You came into my life, sweet and lovely. You come at a price. You don't seem to mind, share your loving with me. You don't make up your mind

Well I told you I would be there whenever you need to smile. Maybe you don't see just yet. Sometimes it takes us a while. No, you don't love yourself like you should, but I do. That's when tears fall.

But if you were mine..
Track Name: Only Me
Now I know what I know, I've got to go

Well it's only me. I've been working on my tunes. Redressing these new old wounds. Well it's only me. Got a strong case of deja vu. Seems to come when I'm with you

Don't call, just to say hello. Don't call, I've dried my pillow. Don't call, I've got to go

Now I know what I know I've got to go

Still it's only me. I'm still working on my tunes. Still redressing these new old wounds. Still it's only me. Get a strong case of deja vu. Only seems to come when I'm with you

Don't call, just to say hello. Don't call, I've dried my pillow. Don't call, I've got to go
Track Name: Just Go Away
Uninvited you arrived at my door. Know your face, don't wanna see it no more. You used to know me very well. No longer close but I remember well

You and I we had it good for a while. Suspicious minds meant we forgot how to smile. I stood accused, I could not stay. Now you're back trying to darken my day

Just go away. Just go away please. Just go away. Just go away please. Don't spoil my day. No you can't stay so just go away. Just go away please

I don't wanna have these thoughts in my head. So many things I could be doing instead of feeling ill, I've had my fill. Couldn't swallow this bitter pill

Though I tried to I could not sympathise. Couldn't read the truth in between the lies. Apologies, I wait in vain. What a fool, thought that you had changed. Thought that you had changed. Just go away

Just go away. Just go away please. Just go away. Just go away please. Don't spoil my day. No you can't stay so just go away. Just go away please

But you don't know what I've been going through. I'm sorry. I'm sorry
Track Name: Square One
I felt something stronger. Don't know why I bother to put it on the line. Gotta protect what's mine. Now I've gotta go

Back to the start

Given time apart, I was fine. But something always brings me back every time. I thought I was through. But song after song tells me I've gone

Back to the start

You take me there. I'm going back to the start again. 'Cos I never learn. No I never learn. Don't pass go. Just don't pass go. And I never learn
