Thread: Help me identify the title and artist of an old R&B song...

    It was sung by an African American singer circa late 1960's, early 1970's, and sounds like a "Motown" song to me. The subject matter involves a man who is rejecting a woman he once had a relationship with. She did a lot of things that upset him, and was very rude to him, and he is basically telling her off as he dumps her. It starts out with him singing: "You don't know how I feel..." He mentions how everytime they were together, she always found a reason to "put him down." Later on in the song, he says that "you have to reap what you sow." I think the chorus goes "It's okay" or "It's allright", and near the end he keeps singing: "So bye now...you've been hurting me, so bye now." Please forgive me if some of the lyrics are wrong. I have googled this song, and have searched for it on "You-Tube" as well, and have had no luck finding out what the title was, and who sung it.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance!

    Cheers!

    Thank you, but that is not the song I am thinking of. The "Oldies" radio station I listen to plays it constantly. Unfortunately, the D.J.'s never identify the title or the artist. How frustrating!

    Cheers!

    Is this it?

    Sorry about the video. I hate live performances.

    Artist: Huey Lewis And The News
    Title: But It's Alright

    I heard this song in the movie Toothless a long time ago, what you described reminded me of this song.

    Im almost 100% sure this is the song you're searching for.
