Cassandra has taken a staple of 'Motown' soul, and simmered it down into bayou blues. This rendition of "I Can't Stand The Rain" makes one clench their shirt to their breast, lean into the night, and revel in the mist of sweat on one's brow. All I can say is, she made a song that was already sultry and passionate into a vision of fervent, intense, raw emotion.

Bringing back sweet memories
Ican't stand the rain 'gainst my window
Cause he's not here with me
