“Answer to My Prayers” opens Something to Make You Feel Good on an extraordinarily solid note. It’s a light, relatively breezy blues prioritizing structure and melody over any guitar histrionics and Wright leaps out of the mix with tremendous engagement. He takes an audacious turn on “Apartment Living”, a hard-edged slab of funk with dense, layered instrumentation. “Looking for an Ugly Woman” has a stylish groove that takes over immediately and Wright rides it masterfully. The song has some obvious comedic qualities, but Wright’s songwriting artistry lies in the song’s subtle undertones only discerning listeners will pick up on. “She Don’t Believe In Love” hinges on the same songwriting model; it presents itself as one thing, but there’s an underside to the track that gives it added depth. “Happiness” blasts out with resounding energy that quickly captures listeners’ attention and the brass section boils over with vivid, forceful energy.

“LOOKING FOR AN UGLY WOMAN

By Charles Wright

On a roller coaster ride with this foxy little girl, who walked by my side and rocked my world. But she lied and cheated and I finally learned, can’t trust some people when your back is turned.

-CHORUS-
I’m looking for an ugly woman someone who’ll understand, looking for an ugly woman, who won’t disrespect her man.
Looking for an ugly woman, pretty women they think they’re smart. Looking for an ugly woman, pretty women they’ll break your heart.

Some people say wow! What a beautiful thing, awe! t
They don’t understand y’all, they can’t feel my pain. If they could see this from the other side, they’d see that beauty’s just going along for the ride.

I’m looking for an ugly woman yes I am, looking for an ugly woman frankly, I don’t give a damn. Looking for an ugly woman, pretty women they think they’re slick. Looking for an ugly woman, pretty women they’re full of sh—t!
.
-BRIDGE-

She ride around in a car with smokey window glass, she look sadity but she ain’t got an ounce of class!

Into my wallet, stole fifty bucks, into the casino; y’all, where she tried her luck. Why did you donthis, stoop so low, only thing she could tell me y’all was, “I just don’t know?”

-CHORUS-

I’m looking for an ugly woman yes I am, looking for an ugly woman frankly, I don’t give a damn. Looking for an ugly woman, pretty women they talk too fast, looking for an ugly woman, pretty women they can kiss my Unah!

-SOLO-

Unhun! Yeah! Yeah! Unah! Yeah! Unah!  Ununh! Yeah! Yeah! Unah!

-BRIDGE-
Aw! She ride around in a car with smokey window glass, she looks sadity but she ain’t got an ounce  of class!

4, I learned my lesson, I did discover, can’t judge a book not by the cover. I tell ya’, I forgave her a thousand times, I guess I never did in the back of my mind.

– CHORUS-

I’m looking for an ugly woman someone who’ll understand, looking for an ugly woman, who won’t disrespect her man.

Looking for an ugly woman, pretty women they think they’re slick, looking for an ugly woman, pretty women are full of tricks,
Ugly woman, pretty women will break your heart. Ugly woman, pretty women they think they’re smart. Looking for an ugly woman, pretty wimen they think they’re cute. I want an ugly woman, just to help me spend my loot.

-SOĹO-

Ah! Ha! I told you to be careful what you look for, now didn’t I!?

Legendary Soul Singer Charles Wright Pens First in Series of Autobiographies, “Up from Where We’ve Come”

The Urban Music Scene

In the Preface to his book, Wright writes, “Some may consider these chapters a vital part of American history which has yet to be told in this particular fashion. “Truer words could not be spoken as the reader receives a series of history lessons from a firsthand account straight out of the memories of a most impressionable and observant youth. Through his hindsight insights as an older/wiser man, Charles Wright imparts knowledge, culture and context in each of the tome’s 56 chapters.

Through Wright’s eyes, the reader will meet his long put upon father, his wily but loving mother, his young brothers, sisters and cousins, and two different White land owners that overworked and underpaid them all with utmost disrespect to go around. While no one that studies history will find that surprising or enlightening, the personal portrait shared here makes it all the more poignant and real.

Along with the strife and struggles, however, are visions from a wide-eyed child of the natural world around him and the industrial changes happening on that very land. There’s the warmth and play of a family co-existing in a shabby home in spite of hard times. And then there’s a love story between a woman and a man that blossoms against all odds and challenges as they fight to understand each other, support each other and still find a way to romance each other.

“Up From Where We’ve Come” emerges as a triumphant and highly unique literary statement from a man whose music has already touched several generations of fans. So powerful are the stories that Wright has not one but four separate Forewords from supporters across the spectrum: California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Rock ’n’ Roll Originator Little Richard, acclaimed Broadcast Journalist Roland Bynum and renowned Music Educator Reggie Andrews.
