The Blacklist: Now 'No Sugar in My Coffee' is stuck in my head (Video)

Yes, I did watch the season two premiere of The Blacklist on NBC last night, and naturally, it was only predictable in its hotness, but now I've got "No Sugar in My Coffee" by Caught A Ghost stuck in my head. You may, too: "Don't want no sugar in my coffee. It makes me mean, lawd! It makes me mean."

It's not a bad earworm to have. The song is from the Los Angeles trio's debut album/CD Human Nature.

The group, fronted by songwriter/producer Jesse Nolan, features singer/percussionist Tessa Thompson. Now, that was a surprise for me. I loved her in the BBC's Copper as Sara Freeman but had no idea she could sing.
On drums, Stephen Edelstein.

 Nolan says group's name reflects the idea of "being filled with the spirit of the past." That's appropriate. Something about its sound reminds me of the group War and other 1960s and 70s R&Bish rock bands.

  

The Blacklist was not the first TV show to feature "No Sugar in My Coffee," however. Apparently, The Vampire Diaries, which I do not watch, used the song last year.

I will not be doing a recap of tonight's episode; however, in case you missed this NY Daily News article about the show, James Spader (Red Reddington) says his character's true motives for inserting himself into the life of Agent Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) will be revealed this season. I'll believe that when I see it. The show is a notorious tease, and I suspect Spader is as well.
