Karen Wolfe - "Ain't No Right Way to Do Wrong"

Karen Wolfe always, always keeps it real. There is something deeply moving about this very beautiful song, I don't know, I think it's because I can feel her pain as she sings.  She's in a relationship with a married man and her conscience has been eating away at her.  She starts the song by calling her boyfriend to tell him that she can't keep doing what they're doing.  She knows it's wrong and she finally realizes that there's no right way to do wrong.  Have you ever been the other woman or the other man?

Here are her lyrics...

I try not to call when I know you're with her
I don't speak when I see you together
I can't look you in your face
Trying to figure out my place
Oh it's hard being number two
I'm so tired of being all alone
I know when you'll get by yourself you'll call my phone

Chorus
I think I've finally realized there ain't no right way to do wrong
My conscience trying to take control of me
Won't let it-won't let it-won't let it-won't let it

I've been fooling myself all this time
Thinking one day you gonna be all mine
But you ain't going nowhere
You'll lie to keep me there
What a fool I've been for you
You've got two kids and a home
Now you are there with her and I'm all alone

Chorus
I think I've finally realized there ain't no right way to do wrong
My conscience trying to take control of me
Won't let it-won't let it-won't let it-won't let it

I tried my best to get over you, yes I did
Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
Love takes control of you

You must think that I'm a fool
Trying to run your game and that ain't cool
You want to have your two or three
And trying to make a fool of me
And that's the reason why I'm singing this song
You may as well make it right at home
Cause this ain't worth my time
So you might as well go on

Chorus
I think I finally realized there ain't no right way to do wrong
My conscience trying to take control of me...

Simply beautiful...

The Lewis Dee Show and A Southern Soul Minute

For all you southern soul music fans, listen to my new Southern Soul Minute that’s aired on the Lewis Dee Show! The Southern Soul Minute is a quick 60-second segment of information on a featured southern soul artist and I’m sure you’ll like it. 
You can listen to the Lewis Dee show on Sunday afternoons from 4 – 6pm EST on Legend Radio Network (http://tunein.com/radio/Legend-Radio-Network-s251301/ ). He plays fantastic mix of southern soul and r&b, adds some comedy clips, and even incorporates an HBCUspotlight on each show. I am a true believer of HBCUs and a proud graduate of Stillman College located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and so I’m thrilled that he does this spotlight. 
The Lewis Dee Show is syndicated so you can catch his show at various times in many other markets and on plenty of websites –see http://southernsoulparadise.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-lewis-dee-show.html for a complete list of stations – there may be one near you and you can always find one online!

Duchess Jureesa McBride - "Call Me Crazy"

Check out the new Duchess Jureesa McBride single!  Her voice is velvety smooth - wish I could sing like her. lol This song is a scenario from a story that's all too real - we have either been in or seen others in relationships that have gone bad.  Like here, the woman is often advised to hang in there and try to make things work even though the man keeps lying and is cheating on her like crazy.  How much can you stand?  In "Call Me Crazy," we see the anger building to the point of explosion because dealing with the hurt and pain year after year gets to be just too much.  So, after awhile, you do go crazy.  You'll call her crazy if she pulls a .22 out of her purse, throws his cell phone where it hurts, or puts their business out in the streets.  Talk about being pushed to the edge!!

Well done Jureesa!!!

You'll call me crazy if...
