Chaka Khan featuring "Papillion (Hot Butterfly)"

One of the traits which 57 Years of Soul Music Radio prides itself on is the supra-sensory take on our musical artists, many of whom use evocative lyricism as well as stunning vocal presentation to guide us through careers and eras where some of us were just tuning our ears.

The Gregg Diamond-penned song "Papillion (Hot Butterfly)" came at a turning point in the Soul and R&B industry as we entered the 1980s. Still with an up-tempo groove, this work styled by Chaka Khan (once of the group "Rufus") comes at a time when the music industry was paving new avenues from Disco to Top40 Pop and this is one of the standouts. Read along with us and coax an eternal mood for summer loves.



"Papillion (Hot Butterfly)" | Lyrics
A faded photograph I mailed to you
With feelings I don't want to face
And a long song of surrender in blue
I remember when you took my breath away

Chanson papillon, we were very young
Like butterflies, like hot butterfly
Chanson papillon, we had just begun
We let it slide on by
We didn't realize

All our memories are burning in time
Like a bittersweet perfume
Can you tell me how a love that's so fine
Could have climaxed in a single afternoon

Gone are the days of instant romance
And the nights of slow goodbyes
That was a time of life when foxy was the dance
But then you got wise to all my lies

Chanson papillon, we were very young
Like butterflies, like hot butterfly
Chanson papillon, we had just begun
We let it slide on by
We didn't realize
