See what you've done

Dear friends,

1. Tiffany aka New York from I Love New York, said the following on her last show in response to one of her suitors getting his weep on: "Everybody cries. Babies cry. Dogs cry. Even Doves cry." Sigh. I love this show. I will miss it when it's gone.

2. Speaking of big manly tears, this is the number that stoic types should cough up their jukebox quarters for when their relationships go kaput. It's a rare breakup song that acknowledges heartbreak, doesn't overtly announce "It will get better" but still manages to suggest that it will, without condescension. Sam Cooke's buttery vocals are defiant and precise. You hurt him bad but he will be okay. You'll keep doing whatcha do and that's just fine with him, he's done with you. It's not his problem anymore.

Sam Cooke, being real fine
