Sad Bastard Songs: Modern Soul

Nothing will set off Jethro and I faster than the other person jacking with the radio.  Jethro has a short attention span and likes to flip around or listen to talk radio.  I, on the other hand, will flip if I don’t like a song but generally will keep it on one station.  And that station is usually KRNB 105.7, smmmmoooooottttthhhhh R&B.  (You gotta say it all sexy like.)

He mocks me, but I love this damn station.  I listen to Steve Harvey in the morning and then I get my sexy on with Sean Andre on the drive home.  It’s my feel-good station and generally, baby-makin’ music is my feel-good music.  Even if it’s sad, “baby, baby, please COME BACK!” baby-makin’ music.

Can You Stand the Rain – Boyz II Men
Y’all know of my love for Boyz II Men. I know this is a New Edition song, but this one just breaks your heart.

Sometimes I Cry – Eric Benet
You NEED to cry, Mister I’s addicted to the sex so I cheated on Halle Berry. What is WRONG with you?

Anytime – Brian McKnight
This man could sing the damn phone book and I’m melt into a giant pile of Alyssa-goo.

This Women’s Work – Maxwell
Maxwell is amazing and underrated. He’s just damn cool. And pretty too.

Please Don’t Go – Tank
I’m not a huge Tank fan, but this one is good. You’ll find yourself singing “Please don’t go, please don’t go…” later on in the day, I guarantee it.

Why Would You Stay? – Kem
Because it’s Kem. And because you KNOW he didn’t mean it, babygirl….

Bonus: You – Jesse Powell
I love this song. LOVE it. And I wanted it to be our first dance, but Captain Uptighty-Pants didn’t want to because he’s a PRUDE.
Just because it’s sung by a black man doesn’t make it booty music, JETHRO….
Okay, so it wouldn’t be that great of a first dance song. I still don’t think Grammy would have passed out if we’d danced to it. Prude…

    I think that would’ve been a wonderful first dance song. (And I’m a white girl who can’t dance, so surely I’m in the same league of music prudishness as your Grammy…)

      See?!? Thank you…

      But Jethro is definitely the prude. Grammy is just Baptist. And fiesty. She shoots armadillos off her front porch with a pistol. And she lives in the suburbs.

        Oh my god. She shoots armadillos with a pistol? She’s my kind of grammy. (I’m now adding “dead-eye for varmints” to my list of things to practice so I am a bad-ass old lady. Along with “enjoys liver and onions.” Among other important skills.)

          She’s AMAZING. His whole family is, they are like the DREAM in-law’s. (I’ve already informed Jethro that I’m keeping his family when I leave him for Taye Diggs.)

          **EDIT** I have since been informed it is not a pistol, but a .22 long rifle. You do NOT mess with this 80 year old woman….
