Billy Paul - Me & Mrs Jones
Another one from the "Motown" era. This is the quintessential cheating and being torn about it song and was released in 1972.
Billy Paul is really an excellent vocalist and like a lot of great singers from that era, he had just one major single and this is it. It is his only number 1 effort to date. It has been covered by everyone from Curtis Mayfield to Coolio. When i first saw Amy Winehouse's Back to Black cd, i noticed a track called Me and Mr Jones...Turns out to be a completely different song and tune..LOL
Anyway, this song is really a passionate song and you hear it come through in Billy Paul's voice. I have always wondered if this song was written from experience. How many of you have had a similar experience? LOL. Enjoy!
