Sigh! Here we go again! And though I do realize that singer Billy Paul was not in the same league with Prince, this Grammy-award winning hit was a smash hit with me. And he went on to record 14 albums through 1988. He is survived by his wife, Blanche.
Billy Paul, Prince is waiting for you to join him as is Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Barry White, Luther Vandross and Maurice White. Bring some old school classic to the Funk, The Pop, the R&B and the Sooooooooooul!!
He made being the ‘other’ woman seem, not so bad! Every single time I heard this song, I wanted to be “Mrs. Jones!” And though, I cannot lay claim to having the dubious fame of ever having been the other cough cough, uh..the other….cough, cough, gag, gag. uh…never mind. Nevertheless, this was a great song!
Billy Paul died at the grand old age of 81 of pancreatic cancer.
Thank you Billy Paul and bon voyage to you as well! As someone wrote, “I hate 2016! and goddamn it, this is only April!”
