Joan Osborne — “Right Hand Man” (from Relish) — Right Hand Man - Relish

Once upon a more gloriously innocent time, I literally couldn’t name five songs that were more fun to sing at the top of my lungs while barreling down an empty Texas highway than this wickedly randy gem about the eternal search for Mr. Right (and, natch, about all the Mr. Right Nows you gotta trip clean over while you’re on said search). I hadn’t heard this tune in eons, but when it popped up in a shuffle yesterday, I swear I was jamming along inside of eight seconds. (It’s time to phone home, Joan — we miss you desperately, gal!

  1. the buzz from Blake Boldt:

    A really underrated album. Look at Joan’s fellow nominees in the ’95 Grammy Best New Artist race (Shania, Alanis, Hootie, Brandy) and tell me she’s not the most talented of them all.

    I trip all the time.
