Tom Jones = Torture? You be the judge

In a random conversation today at lunch with some co-workers we were recalling various music icons and heartthrobs of days gone by. Inevitably, Tom Jones entered the conversation. For many my age, Tom was the ‘hottie’ for our parents’ generation. He influenced many women to throw their bras and panties on stage (and probably off –stage) with wild abandon. Tom was briefly on my short list in the early ‘90s when he came out with this song. I was working in retail at the time and heartlessly made my employees play this tape over and over again. I even used it in a fashion show we put on that year. You’ll either fall in love again with him, or cite me for cruel and unusual punishment!
