What I learned from listening to the radio
"Don't Play That Song For Me," Aretha Franklin
I know that he lied, yes he did. Hey baby, you lied!
"Gonna put it in the want ads!" Lipstick on your collar, perfume on it, too. Tells me you been lying', Tell you what I"m gonna do..."
"Mr. Big Stuff" Who do you think you are? You never gonna get my love.
"It's a Thin Line Between Love and Hate." Chandra sang this song every day on the bus to high school until I had it memorized:
"Sweetest woman in the world can be the meanest woman in the world...if you make her that way." Annie Lennox did a great cover of this long in 1995 on Medusa.
"Respect Yourself," The Staples Singers
"You cuss around women folk, you don't even know their name,
Then you dumb enough to think that make you a big old man"
Lucinda Williams, Doug Pettibone on the guitar;
You took my joy, I want it back.
