Thoughts On a Rainy Night

On a rainy night this song will always come to mind.  You know the Brook Benton version but check out this Conway and Sam Moore take on it.  If you only have a few minutes to do so, pick it up at the 3:40 mark where they go back and forth talking about it raining.  Conway's "Made me want to but I can't Sam" is a classic.  

Did you know that Conway, born Harold L. Jenkins, selected his stage name by consulting a road map where he spied Conway, Arkansas and Twitty, Texas? Conway passed in 1993 at the young age of 60 while Sam is still around and will turn 90 next month on 12 October.   Sam is in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame for being part of Sam and Dave (click here.)
