    1. I want you to know I am seriously mad at you. One tissue box done, and its not even LUNCHTIME???? WHat the HELL man?
    2. Isn’t it funny that Kenny Loggins was Justin Timberlake before Justin was.
    3. “don’t ask my neighbor…come to meeeeee” I could really hurt you.
    4. The Lady Wants to Know. – ok, you put this in here, especially to make me lay on the carpet in my drama queen position. Someone, prepare the chalk outline. …really is no reason why…
    5. Minnie. The sweetest voice ever heard. And I mean really…this was the one-two punch. You’re gonna make me stop telling you my secrets.
    6. Alexander O’Neal – “Sunshine.” I just…I can’t.
    *RPM* shakes fist at Flavors.

    Hey, love what you do on this site, been tuning in for a while but this is my first contribution! This selection is awesome…interesting to see Kiss The Sky ‘So Easy’, Paul Hardcastle (part of Kiss the Sky) did the original as far back as late 80’s/early 90’s as part of UK duo First Light with Kevin Henry(?)…gonna have to dig out that 12″…thanks for the prompt on a slept on tune.
