    I went into this one thinking “Why even listen it’s gotta be Billie Ward and the Dominoes with Jackie Wilson” I love Jackie Wilson. I came out of it voting for the Velvet Fog. The song sounds spectacular all dressed up and taken uptown. Ya, O.K. so Mel was thinking he wanted to move to one of those rich neighborhoods on the outskirts of town, but that’s O.K., he comes across as being sincere.

    Congrats on the shout out Matt!

    I don’t think there’s a bad version of this song. Makes picking one sooo hard.
    In the end, I had to take Billy Ward w/ Jackie Wilson. My wife in the other room picked Louis Jordan, but she didn’t get to vote..heh heh.
