Alvin Ailey – Sinner Man

The day of judgement and nowhere to run to, no where to hide. No matter how macho, now matter how proud.

The meaning in Sinner Man is clear. The end is near. It’s almost as if these three male virtuosos are giving us their one last hurrah. That one last hurrah that showcases their amazing athleticism and their maleness. They show no restraint, pulling out all the stops.

Ohhhh, Sinnerman
Where you gonna run to?
Ohhhh, Sinnerman
Where you gonna run to?
Ohhhh, Sinnerman
Where you gonna run to?
All of that day
Run, run, run, run
Run to the rock, rock wont ya hide me
Run to the rock, rock wont ya hide me
Run to the rock, rock wont ya hide me
All on that day

The words in the song define Sinner Man. And Sinner Man in turn defines so many of us. Please like then share with others.
