Ronnie Lovejoy - "Lonely Christmas"

Ronnie said this is the saddest time of the year for him because it brings back memories.  He was sitting at the kitchen table writing out his Christmas list when he saw the present that his woman had left under the Christmas tree.  Inside was a note saying she was leaving him.  Oh man, what a sad, sad, lonely song and I LOVE it.  This is at the top of my all-time favorite Christmas songs.

Oh, what a lonely place to be, I sure wish I had somebody to spend Christmas with me...

T. K. Soul - "A Little Love"

I've been following T.K. Soul for years and am a huge fan.  Was listening to this love song and had to write down the words...he's my kind of man.

Baby, how was your day today
Girl, all I thought about was you
I just need to know if you're ok
And if there's anything that I can do for you
Did you get the flowers I sent to your job
Just to show you a little love, you've been working so hard

Chorus
Just a little love
Goes a mighty long way with me
Just a little love
Goes a mighty long way

I've been counting down the hours
Been waiting for you to come home
Sent the kids to your mother's
So you and I can chill alone
Did you get the card I sent to you
Just to show I'm crazy about you

Chorus

I'm so glad we're still together
After all the things that we've been through
But through it all you stuck by me
And I appreciate you, yes I do
Did you get the diamond I left for you
Just because you do what you do

Chorus

It's just the little things
That mean a lot
It's just the little things
That mean a lot

Chorus

She takes care of the kids
And works a 9 to 5
I know when she gets home
My baby be so tired
So I run the bath water
I wash her feet
Not a thing in this world I won't do for her
Cause she's always there for me

Chorus

Bishop Bullwinkle - "Hell 2 Da Naw Naw"

This is one of those songs that is in so much demand in the south - turn on any radio station in south central Alabama and you will hear it. I've never heard of Bishop Bullwinkle but he's an interesting guy who talks/raps his way thru this record.  I don't know if he's affiliated with any church but his message in all the interviews I've heard is always positive.  In this song, he talks about people in the church and, if you listen, you'll realize that he's telling the truth.  He said that we, as people, need to get our life together.  Here are a couple of lines from the song:
People sittin' down in the church house and don't even know the words to the hymn.
They're down at the altar confessing their sins and when you see them on Monday night they're doing the same thing again.
And he also talks about kids ending up in jail and how there are consequences to your actions.
Get your life together before it's too late!

Enjoy!!

Ms. Jody - "He's Comin' In The Back Door"

Fellas, if your wife is always smiling when you get home, you better stop and find out what's going on...find out what's making her so happy!  Ms. Jody tells the story about how she used to wish that her husband would come home but now she prays for him to leave.  She found somebody else to take up the slack and while her husband's going out the front, her man's coming in the back.  'As soon as you leave baby, I'm getting what I want!!'  She also said that 'what I can't get from you, I get from him.'  She's so glad that she's found a back-door man.  Well alright now, Ms. Jody!!

Enjoy!

Larome Powers - "Blues Shack"

I really love "What's The Name of That Thang" by Larome Powers and here is another great dance/party song from him.  I was looking for his bio and found this on the Malaco site: Presently living in Memphis, Tennessee, Larome sang and toured the West Coast during the seventies with acts such as Harvey Scales, Jesse James, Joe Tex, Millie Jackson, The Numonics, Gap Band, War, Lenny Williams, Robert Winters and Fall and many others.  It goes on to say this his goals are to become successful in the music world and inspire old and young to appreciate and become fans of the sounds of blues and southern soul music.  I like that!

Wendell B. - "I Can Deal With The Leaks"

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Wendell B.  You have to listen to this song.  He said that he can deal with the leaks but we've got to fix that hole. Cause if we don't fix it, one day it's going to sink your boat. Have mercy!!!  So true, if you have a problem or a leak in your relationship or in your life, that little leak will become a huge hole if you don't fix it.
