I took yesterday off thanks to a massive caffeine withdrawal headache. I wouldn't wish those things on my worst enemies...they're as bad as a migraine! But I'm back, hoping everyone's had a nice Thanksgiving. Here's the next song on my countdown of favorite songs with "man" and "woman" in the title. #4: Another Woman Looking for a Man - Sonny Burns Don't worry, you've never heard the song. You've never heard the singer, either. Sonny Burns' biggest claim to fame is writing the Faron Young hit "A Place for Girls Like You." He was signed to Starday Records about the same time that a friend of his, George Jones, also got a recording deal. Burns and Jones recorded a few songs together, but Sonny faded into relative obscurity and...well, we all know what happened to George Jones. This happy, upbeat, wordy song ("if you want her, you can have her, just remember how you got her" is one line!) is one of Burns' best. Bear Family, the German reissue company, put out a CD of Sonny Burns' material in the 50s and early 60s, including the duets he did with George Jones (and his original version of "A Place for Girls Like You"). Burns, who's 86, still lives in his native Texas. Another Woman Looking for a Man Written by Sonny Burns Recorded by Sonny Burns Released as a single, 1954 The obscure but great Sonny Burns single:

Like I have commented before, you are a historian. You can really dig them up.
