When I was in jazz dance class in college (that class was nearly five years ago…OMG), my instructor played us one song to dance to that I didn’t recognize. I loved the song but never asked her what it was called. For about two or three years, the singer remained a mystery until I watched a Youtube video of a singer named Marcia Ball someone posted on Facebook. “Wait, that singer sounds familiar,” I thought. Sure enough, she was the singer of the song that I had so fruitlessly searched for. Here is the song, called “Why Women Cry.” (When I used to google the lyrics, I would get the Roy Orbison song, which was very frustrating.)
I love that song. I don’t know any of her other songs, but she will be in town this weekend and I just purchased a ticket to her show. It should be good. I hope she plays this one.
