Ms. Jody - "Another Other Woman"

Don't you love Ms. Jody?  She's one of my favorites.  Dr. Nick played this record the other night on Spice Internet Radio (thank you Dr. Nick!!) and this song is in traditional Ms. Jody style - she keeps it real. In "Another Other Woman," she starts out saying that infidelity wasn't really her thing but she was cool with it as long as she was the only sidepiece he had.  Well, of course he cheats on her and that's where she draws the line. Have you ever been in that situation?  Here are a few lines from "Another Other Woman."

I've been the other woman in your life for quite awhile
Although sharing you with your wife was really not my style
But I agreed to go along 
Just as long as i knew I was the only other woman that you were giving your love to
But I should have known how it would be
If you cheated on me with your wife
You would cheat with another on me
You can't have your cake and eat it, too
If I'm not the only other woman, you and I are through.

"Another Other Woman" is taken from Ms. Jody's recent 2018 CD, Thunder Under Yonder.

I told you before I'm not going to date a married playboy!

Mystery Man - "Bedroom Workout"

I like this - it sounds like southern soul!!  This song is quite a few years old and still sounds great!  I can't find out too much about Mystery Man other than he has published a few albums and his real name is Jimmie Warren.  You know I'm going to keep looking to see what I can find.

Enjoy!!

Miss Lady Blues - "Sharing Ain't Easy"

You know I'm a huge Miss Lady Blues fan.  I love her voice!

"Sharing Ain't Easy" is about dealing with yourself and your emotions when you're cheating.  There are some really great lines in this song and I have to give it to the writers.  We could have a conversation and discussion about each one of these:

It's easy to say what you will and won't do until that very thing happens to you.

Nobody wants to feel all alone especially when you're in your own home.

You can't really help who your heart chooses to love and in this situation it just happens to be us.

Sharing ain't easy...just hope nobody figures it out!

Love this song!

Omar Cunningham - "Tennessee Whiskey"

Yes Omar Cunningham!!!  This song is proof that good music is good music, no matter the genre.  Omar sings this country-western Chris Stapleton song and does an absolutely beautiful job.
I used to spend my nights out in a barroom
Liquor was the only love I've known
But you rescued me from reaching for the bottle
And brought me back from being too far gone

Chorus

You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You're as sweet as strawberry wine
You're as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey I stay stoned on your love all the time

I've looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of the bottle's always dry
But when you poured out your heart I didn't waste it
Cause there is nothing like your love to get me high

You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You're as sweet as strawberry wine
You're as warm as, oh a glass of brandy
And honey I stay stoned on your love all the time

Chorus (repeat)
XXOOXX
And honey I stay stoned on your love all the time!
