…are the heart and soul of Cupid’s Hunt.
And, what touches the heart and soul deeper than a Stevie Wonder love song? There were so many of those slow jams; dating back to the days of Little Stevie Wonder. A Stevie album made you learn (“How Long, How Come”), protest (‘You Haven’t Done Nothin”) and fall in love (your favorite goes here); all between the beginning of the first cut and the end of the last. But, it’s those love songs that leave imprints deep inside so strong that hearing them now takes you back to the days when your lights were dim, the incense was glowing and you were with that special someone who made you feel like Stevie wrote that song just for you two.
Who comes to mind when you dim your lights, light your incense and listen to your favorite Stevie Wonder love songs? If they are near, have a dance or two, courtesy of The Night Shift. If they aren’t near, smile at the memory and wish them well.

I wouldn’t have been able to bring you a righteous Stevie podcast without the help of TGrundy – otherwise known as Mr. Brilliant, the Chief Chef of the RIBS Kitchen. There were songs in this mix that I either never knew, or didn’t remember; and secrets about beat-matching and harmonic mixing that will make every project from now on that much more fun. Aside from all things technical and many things musical, there are few things more fun than sharing the music, the memories and the task at hand with someone who was there when the lights were dim, and the incense glowed.
