HER: (Sniffling)

HIM: Tell me… What do you think is wrong? (He Pauses)

Story……

Found out about another woman.

“I started seeing a guy after meeting him at a charity event. Two weeks in, he calls me and says that he doesn’t want to be in a relationship because he’s going to be moving back to his parents in Dubai in a few months time. I asked him if he maybe wanted to try it out and see how the distance worked out for us. If it was too much, we could still be friends. He agreed.

“A few weeks after moving back to Dubai (we had been dating for eight months at this point), he and I are on Skype. He says, ‘I haven’t been entirely truthful. I told you the last girl I dated was five years ago but that’s not true. There was someone after that as well.’ This got my thinking really hard and all I asked after that was if she’s still in the picture. And if so, in what capacity. He said (I kid you not), ‘She’s still my girlfriend.’ I was the ‘other woman’ and I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW.

“Here’s where it gets good. I reached out to his girlfriend via Facebook, sent her my number, and asked her to give me a call. She called me later that night and I told her everything, along with apologising for not having heeded the red flags. She was understanding of that fact that we were both blindsided. He later told me that my telling her everything had ‘ruined the sanctity’ of their relationship.

“Soul Survivors – Expressway To Your Heart”

“Soul Survivors – Expressway To Your Heart”

The Soul Survivors were an American, Philadelphia-based R&B group, founded by New York natives Richie and Charlie Ingui and Kenny Jeremiah, known for their 1967 hit single “Expressway to Your Heart“, which was the first hit by Philadelphia soul record producers and songwriters Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff.[1]

History

The Soul Survivors first played together in New York under the name The Dedications, founded by member Kenny Jeremiah, who released several singles under this name in 1962 and 1964. They adopted the name Soul Survivors in 1965. They signed to Philadelphia label Crimson Records, who put them in touch with Gamble & Huff. “Expressway to Your Heart” was a #1 hit regionally in Philadelphia and New York in the fall of 1967, and the tune reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 nationally. “Expressway to Your Heart” spent 15 weeks in the charts and sold over one million copies.[1]

The follow-up was “Explosion in Your Soul,”[2] which was not as successful (U.S. #33); a third release, “Impossible Mission”, also was a minor hit in 1969 (U.S. #68). They quit playing for a few years, but re-formed with a different lineup in 1972. They had one more hit, “City of Brotherly Love” in 1974.[2] In the 1970s, the group lost its record contract and its manager and eventually disbanded.[3] Charlie Ingui became a landscaper, Richie Ingui became a house painter, Paul Venturini became a restaurateur, and drummer Joe Forgione owned an auto body shop.[3] In 1987, the Inqui brothers began playing occasional gigs as the original Soul Survivors and signed a five-record contract in 1991 with Society Hill Records.[3] As of 2006, they were playing occasional dates in the Eastern United States.

Chuck Trois also went on to release a solo 45 rpm single on A&M Records in August 1969, with “Mr. Holmes” on one side, and “A National Band” on the other.

“Clarence Henry – Ain’t got no home – 1956 (Frogman)”

“Clarence Henry – Ain’t got no home – 1956 (Frogman)”

giphy.com

Clarence “Frogman”Henry (born March 19, 1937, Algiers, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States) is an American rhythm and blues singer and pianist and trombonist.[1]

Clarence Henry was born in New Orleans in 1937. Fats Domino and blues singer and pianist Professor Longhair were cited as young Henry’s main influences while growing up.[1] When Henry played in talent shows, he dressed like Longhair and wore a wig with braids on both sides.

His trademark croak, utilized to the maximum on his 1956 debut hit “Ain’t Got No Home,” earned Henry his nickname of “Frogman” and jump-started a career that endures to this day.[1] A cover of the country artist Bobby Charles’ hit “(I Don’t Know Why) But I Do”, and “You Always Hurt the One You Love”, both from 1961, were his other big hits.[2]

Henry opened eighteen concerts for the Beatles across the US and Canada in 1964, but his main source of income came from the Bourbon Street strip in New Orleans, where he played for nineteen years.[1] His name could still draw hordes of tourists long after his hit-making days had ended. He still plays at various conventions, including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
