In my previous jam, I asked y'all to offer suggestions for what this next one would be, if i were to continue the trend of picking songs where people of one gender are driven crazy by individuals of the other gender. All of them were great choices, but I could only pick one. Here were the contenders. @debutch - Lorraine Ellison - Stay With Me (Baby) @edflnn - Etta James - I'd Rather Be Blind @mrscave64 - Roberta Flack - First Time Ever I Saw Your Face @SheRa - Angie Stone - Wish I Didn't Miss You I recommend checking all these songs out. They're all great jams, but I dug this video of Etta James kidding around with her band and her audience in this live performance from 1975 in Montreal. I also happened upon a cover by Bette Midler of Stay With Me which I almost picked instead but copyright limits prevented me. Which is stupid but whatever. Oh, and Barbara Lynn's You'll Lose A Good Thing also caught my eye and ear. Thanks for the input everybody! =)   7
