Cupid's Hunt: If Loving You Is Wrong

 I just couldn’t leave well enough alone.  I’ve already posted two Cupid’s Hunt mixes and managed to stay out of mischief.  Why not just leave it at that?  Well, because while I’m a hopeless romantic, there is still a bit of a devil in me.

When I was a kid, I loved Millie Jackson.  Second only to those Jackson boys in the amount of vinyl I spun, Millie was played by me more often than any other female artist.  The only hitch was that Millie’s frankness, and cheatin’  and “poor me” songs, really annoyed my mother; especially once I learned the lyrics.  But, even she couldn’t stifle a chuckle during the last line of Millie’s The Rap. 

So, with tongue-in-cheek,  TNS – If Loving You Is Wrong is a collection of songs that got an, “Alright, that’s enough!  Play something else!” from my mother.  I’ve also included some newer songs:  George Michael’s “Careless Whisper” and Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River” (because their videos were just so cold); Shirley Murdock’s “As We Lay”; Luther V’s “She Saw You” and TLC’s “Creep”.

I want to give a shout out to C. Brown, whose Love Lockdown Mix (for the love hater in you) on has all but given me permission to speak up for the Cupid hunters who bought Valentine’s Day presents for themselves, and said the presents were from someone else.
