9. Bobby Womack, "I Wish He Didn't Trust Me So Much," 1985
This one really cuts. A Number Two R&B hit, "I Wish He Didn't Trust Me" tells the story of a man's best friend who is having an affair with his friend's wife, pleading that he can't control himself ("I swear it's not my will/But it's something about the way she makes me feel"), then admitting responsibility, then just offering the world's most pathetic non-apology. Again playing the unreliable, unscrupulous narrator with pained conviction, Womack ends up crying out, "We got a problem, baby." Not sure about her, but he should be getting used to it.
