Delegation

"Oh Honey" by British Soul band Delegation became a regular staple on Quiet Storm radio shows when it dropped in 1978.

Lovestruck men called up radio shows late at night to dedicate this love ballad to their honeys.

And every DJ spinning records at red light special parties in their mama's basement saved this slow jam for last.

Oh Honey lyrics

When I get lost, feel I've been  crossed
She will be my salvation
When I feel low, I'll know where to go
She'll be my inspiration

Yeah, when my poor heart is breakin' apart
She'll put it back together
She ain't the kind to show off her mind
But talking of love she's clever, yeah

[Chorus]

Oh honey (Oh honey)
Oh honey (Oh honey)

She rarely spends time with her friends
Tells me she's blue without me
When things go wrongHer faith is strong
I know she'll never doubt me

Yeah, when she arrives and stands by my side
Makes me so proud to know her
High-steppin' dames with high-soundin' names
There ain't nothin' they could show her, yeah

[Repeat chorus]

Now I just wanna thank you, baby
For givin' me a brand new start
I was goin' down, you saved me
When you let me in your lovin' heart, yeah

[Repeat chorus x3]

    Love and I mean LOVE that old school smoove groove. As a teenager in the 90's when radio stations would play what was called "The Quiet Storm" it was just an instant euphoria to my ears. But Sandra why do British people loose their accents while singing? Lmbooooo. Just curious?

  • SumthinSweeter

    Meeeee toooo..... it was called the quiet storm for the local stations in my city.
