He Draggged Me Out Of The 70s…

Cupid's hunt 6

I have to admit…I’m stuck in the 70s.

The songs of my youth – and the songs of my early childhood played by my parents –  were truly the soundtrack of my life.  When I left home and began building a life with my husband and kids, the kids were rocked to sleep and danced across the floor to the sounds of classic R&B.

So, as we entered the 90s, when I finally had the right combination of time and funds to add a few songs to that soundtrack, where had all the crooners gone?

They were working with Quincy Jones and Babyface.

My tribute to Quincy is in the archives of previous Cupid’s Hunts mixes.  It’s still one of my favorite backgrounds to romantic moments.  This tribute to Babyface started out as an exercise in beat-mixing, and took off on its own.

Thank-you, Kenneth Edmonds, for helping me step out of the 70s (at least, for a little while).

Thank-you, Margaret Bethune Borman and Sara Bethune, for sitting me in down for Toni Braxton’s white jumpsuit video.

Thank-you, Greg Bethune, for providing me with many a romantic moment that inspired my Cupid’s Hunt mixes.

And, to my girls in L&D, NICU and MBU at Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center:  this is for the cool in you.
