Flashback: Joss Stone // Right To Be Wrong
It’s been a while since I’ve last been here - if you want to see tumblr activity from me head over to wastingcredit.tumblr.com for photo re-blogs and ridiculous questions from anonymous. I’ll try and make the odd post on here, but I’m way behind with music and am only really using tumblr as a break from revision right now. This is way too constructive and useful for that, so it’ll be mindless pictures of Yasmin, mountains and Nikes for the meanwhile.
I never really got the whole Joss Stone backlash in the UK. Sure, she spoke with an American accent - but she had been spending a lot of time there from her early teens, so it didn’t really seem like a big deal to me. Sadly the public were fickle, and Joss’ career was never the same again. Now she’s on her own record label, and brilliant singles such as “Somehow” and “Karma” are getting ignored. It’s a pity.
It was a different case back in 2004. Joss had just scored her biggest hit with “You Had Me”, and her album “Mind, Body & Soul” was selling by the buckletloads. “Right To Be Wrong” was the second single off the album, and probably the most overlooked of the four too. Serving as the album’s opening track, Joss’ smoky voice compliments the late night jazz lounge feel of the track, with it’s bluesy organs and rootsy guitars.
The track feels very slinky and laidback - it makes you feel like you’re all alone in a smoky room and all you can think about are your regrets from the past month. Thankfully the song’s lyrics stop us from going into total despair, as I’ve been listening to this track quite a bit lately to realise that it’s okay to screw up. And It is, okay?
