Significant songs #1 “I’ll Be Missing You”

“I’ll Be Missing You” is a song recorded by rapper Puff Daddy and singer Faith Evans, featuring RnB group 112. It was produced in honour of Bad Boy Records artist Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G” Wallace, who was murdered in a drive-by shooting in 1997. The Notorious B.I.G was a friend of Puff Daddy, and Faith Evans was his wife.

The song is based on the Police song “Every Breath You Take”, with a chorus sung by Evans. The track also features a moving spoken intro over a choral version of Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings”. It is one of the best selling singles of all time.

The events leading up to the murder of The Notorious B.I.G are laced with mystery and controversy, but this tribute is a genuinely moving recognition of what the man meant to the people close to him. In terms of music stories the ‘friendship gone wrong’ between The Notorious B.I.G and Tupac has to be one of the biggest, and in our opinion this is what makes this single one of the most significant songs of all time.

Lyrics

Every day I wake up
I hope I’m dreamin’
I can’t believe this s#@*
Can’t believe you ain’t here
Sometimes it’s just hard for a n*#*@ to wake up
It’s just hard to just keep goin’
It’s like I feel empty inside without you bein’ here
I would do anything man, to bring you back
I’d give all this shit, shit the whole knot
I saw your son today
He look just like you
You was the greatest
You’ll always be the greatest
I miss you Big
Can’t wait till that day, when I see your face again
I can’t wait till that day, when I see your face again
Yeah, this right here (tell me why)
Goes out, to everyone, that has lost someone
That they truly loved (c’mon, check it out)
Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hangin’ on the block for dough
Notorious, they got to know that
Life ain’t always what it seem to be (uh-uh)
Words can’t express what you mean to me
Even though you’re gone, we still a team
Through your family, I’ll fulfill your dream (that’s right)
In the future, can’t wait to see
If you open up the gates for me
Reminisce some time, the night they took my friend (uh-huh)
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When it’s real, feelings hard to conceal
Can’t imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living your life, after death
Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
I’ll be missing you
Thinkin’ of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
I’ll be missing you
I miss you Big
It’s kinda hard with you not around (yeah)
Know you in heaven smilin’ down
Watchin’ us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Till the day we meet again
In my heart is where I’ll keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I need (uh-huh) to proceed
Strength I need to believe
My thoughts big I just can’t define (can’t define)
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Us in the six, shop for new clothes and kicks
You and me taking flicks
Makin’ hits, stages they receive you on
Still can’t believe you’re gone (can’t believe you’re gone)
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living you’re life, after death
Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
I’ll be missing you
Thinkin’ of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
I’ll be missing you
Somebody tell me why
One black morning
When this life is over
I know
I’ll see your face
Every day that passes
Is a day that I get closer
To seeing you again
We miss you big, and we won’t stop
‘Cause we can’t stop, that’s right
