Brown's traditional performance close -- wailing, falling to his knees, being covered with a cape, led almost off stage, still singing quietly, only to rise again, returned to the center, bringing the screaming crowd to its feet -- is indelible. It suggested nothing short of a life force, one that lives on in his many followers.

Which was what James Brown hoped for.

"I would like to pass on the want to do something," he told CNN in 2000. "The need is there. Good lyrics are good things, but I would like to pass on that drive, that vigorous undying determination.“我想告诉大家我们需要做事,”他在2000年告诉CNN。“迫在眉睫。好的歌曲固然好,但是我更想把那种干劲,那种不死的决心传递下去。”

Exactly.

What a strange phrase! It's rare that "want" is used like that.

James Brown, the "Godfather of Soul," died on Christmas Day, at the age of 73.
中文我不会读也不会写。Really, I don't.

James Brown is dead. Long live James Brown!

The immortal Brown defines the word himself in the above quote: the want  = that drive, that determination

Many thanks, putneyswope.

Oh, I see. But I'm afraid I can't express the meaning in Chinese.
