Joe Simon - "Trouble In My Home"

This song is a little sad and depressing but it is just awesome.  Talk about the blues.  Joe is having so much trouble and he says so much bad luck and he doesn't know the reason why.  He came home from work, tired from his job, walked in the door and couldn't believe his eyes.  His baby was standing there with a ticket in her hand because she said she was leaving because she has another man. Oh, can you imagine the hurt and his pain??

He just wants someone to hear his cry.  Someone pray for him so his home will be a home of love and peace.

If you can forgive me, I swear I'll make it up to you.

Thank You Aretha!!

Aretha was so amazing. Legendary.  Inspiring.  Thought provoking.  Memory maker. Marvelous.  Incredible.  Iconic. Beautiful singer.  Gone but never forgotten.  We grew up to her music and experienced life’s ups and downs to her songs. I’ll bet you can associate so many of your life’s experiences to different Aretha Franklin songs.  I know I can.  Each song holds special memories and her music has been instrumental in my life since I was a young girl.  Aretha, we'll miss you and we thank you, we thank you, we thank you!

Our thoughts and prayers are with Aretha's family.

Aretha Franklin

My heart is heavy and my prayers are with Aretha and her family as she battles cancer.  Aretha is one of those living legends who transformed our lives and changed the entire world.  We grew up with her and her music and although often imitated, she could never be duplicated.

When I first moved away from home, this was the song that inspired and moved me when I was lonely and living on my own for the first time.  I'm sure everyone has a favorite Aretha song and I have so many.

Betty Wright - "Secretary"

This is classic Betty Wright from 1974!!

It's very ordinary for the secretary
To take a man away from his wife
Girls, we make it necessary for the secretary
To put a little joy in his life
She takes the time to listen
To what he has to say
While all you do is nag him
A thousand times a day
Her hair is always pretty
And her clothes are always stylish
But you greet him with your hair in rollers
And that's outdated and so childish
Oh, it's very ordinary for the secretary
To take a man away from his wife
Why make it necessary for the secretary
To put a little joy in his life
Are you there when he needs you
Are your favors less than cute
And when he tries to love you
Do you find something else to do
Now the ordinary girl may not wear pearls
Or diamonds on each hand
Oh, but like the secretary, wooh
She knows how to please her man
Oh, it's not extraordinary for the secretary
To take a man away from his wife
You see, we make it necessary for the secretary
To put a little joy in his life
You see, life's a bowl of cherries
For all the secretaries
Oh, it's very ordinary, it's not extraordinary
Girls, don't be contrary or you'll make it necessary
Your life can be so merry just like the secretary
Life's a bowl of cherries
