Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about American singer and songwriter, Al Green.




Al Green (real name: Albert Leornes Greene) is an American singer, songwriter and record producer. He is best known for soul hit singles like: "Tired of Being Alone", "Take Me to the River", "Love and Happiness", "I'm Still in Love with You" and his most famous and known song, "Let's Stay Together".

The song "Let's Stay Together" is about an unconditional love, where you are determined to stick it out through good times and bad times. This song is also a very popular wedding song.

After Willie Mitchell gave Al Green a rough mix of a tune that he and drummer Al Jackson had developed, Green wrote the lyrics to the song in 5 minutes. However, Green didn't want to record the song and for two days, he argued with Willie Mitchell before finally agreeing to cut it.

Al Green is considered one of the most gifted purveyors of soul music and is also referred to as the last of the great soul singers. In 1995, he was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is also ranked on the 65th spot on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and on the 14th spot on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers.
