“New Jam Tuesday” sounds like it could be a real thing, doesn’t it? Don’t get your hopes up of it happening again, but: I do have a couple of new-to-me tunes to recommend, thanks to iTunes and my random decision to ask it to make a playlist based on the Jackson 5’s “ABC” this morning while I was getting ready. Here they are:
1. “I Wish It Would Rain,” The Temptations. Looooooord. Masculine emotophobia never sounded so good. Plus this lead me to learn more about lead singer David Ruffin and his trademark glasses. A posthumous fist bump to my bespectacled brother. Yes.
2. “Hide Nor Hair,” Ray Charles. She ran off with your doctor? That’s cold.
