You all know what time it is. And please, don’t sleep. Spring is here. I’ll

From the lesser played cuts:
01 – The Jets – I Do You.
02 – Paula Abdul – My Foolish Heart.
03 – Whitney Houston – Thinking About You.

To the jams:
04 – Gwen Guthrie – Padlock.
05 – The Mary Jane Girls – In My House.
06 – Eurythmics – Who’s That Girl?
07 – Taja Sevelle – Love Is Contagious.
08 – The Brothers Johnson – Strawberry Letter 23.
09 – DeBarge – I Like It.

To the slow cuts:
10 – GQ – I Do Love You.
11 – Heatwave – Mind Blowing Decisions.
12 – Tony! Toni! Tone! – Slow Wine.

    My parents used to always rock Heatwave’s Mind Blowing Decisions at their house parties.

    Oooh, I always loved GQ’s “I Do Love You”… And now that I’m older, I have much more appreciation for slower hits like Tony! Toni! Tone!’s “Slow Wine” than I did when I was a kid and my parents playing them on repeat seemingly ad infinitum.
    Very nice mix, EJ!

    Sure, throw it in my face by playing that Taja Sevelle “Love Is Contagious”. That was my song, I could have sang that song better…uhhh well, I could have sang that song. I might have even became famous and been Prince’s one true love and ohhh the agony, hehehe. You know how much I love that song, thank you bunches for including it, I’m in EJ heaven 😉
