  • Me and Mrs. Jones è un singolo originariamente pubblicato dal cantante soul statunitense Billy Paul nel 1972. Il pezzo fu scritto da Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff e Cary Gilbert e raggiunse il primo posto nella classifica USA Billboard Hot 100, mantenendola per tre settimane nel dicembre 1972 ed il decimo nei Paesi Bassi. La canzone è incentrata sul rapporto extraconiugale fra un uomo (il cantante) e una donna sposata, la Mrs. Jones del titolo. Visto il notevole successo che il singolo ebbe, numerosi artisti ne effettuarono delle cover; fra di essi vi sono Curtis Mayfield, Al Green, Michael Bublé e Sarah Jane Morris. Anche il cantante Hip Hop Coolio incise una propria versione del singolo, contenuta nell'album Gangsta's Paradise ma intitolata A Thing Goin' On. La canzone appare anche in una puntata della serie TV statunitense Scrubs, nella quale il personaggio di Christopher Turk ne canta il ritornello per la gioia della sua fidanzata, Carla. (it)
