June may be a Wedding month for many couples, but sometimes many relationships don’t get to make it to the Altar. For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we go back in time to check out Cornel Campbell’s track, “You’re No Good“.
Produced by Bunny “Striker” Lee for his Lee’s Label and released in 1973, Cornel Campbell uses his signature falsetto to deliver a song that speaks about heartbreak, abandonment, and lost love. Cornel calls out the person who hurt him, and let him to suffer, and he looks back at the times he was warned that she was not. good person. The hurt can be felt by the listener, people instantly connected with the song, and related to the lyrics. The song was a great addition to Campbell’s catalogue, as he recorded many hits with Bunny Lee in the 1970s. He went on to record many singles and released albums well into 2021 in the form of the reissue of his 1978 album, “Sweet Baby“. Congrats to those who got a chance to take the big step this Wedding season, much love to those who have gone through splits.
