I wanted to give a little of the old school staples, like Deniece Williams’s classic Free, and Heatwave’s Star Of The Story, one of my personal top 5 all-time classics. But I thought it be essential to pull out some of blue-eyed soul, like Player’s Baby Come Back or some cuts that were played way back in the day, like Phoebe Snow’s Poetry Man. Also, there is no way I could possibly forget my cassette tapes and 12 inch songs that I’ve bought at least 3 copies of, like Moments In Love and Gigolos Get Lonely Too, essentials for the cool dudes from around the way.

I consider myself one of "least romantic" people out there, as I told my homeslice PhillyKat better known as The Romantical Chick. She gave me that push that I needed. Enjoy it. Hey, and if Valentines Day isn’t your bag, you could always do something like let EJ know what you think about him (snatched from George and Hopluv.) Don’t be shy.

Happy Valentines Day to you and yours!

  1. It’s 7:57am and I am groovin…I had to skip to the Time’s “Gigolos get Lonely Too”! Oh, you took me back. Can you see a 13/14 year old signing this? Like I knew what I was signing! I cracked myself up this morning!
    I’m going to have to be late today, I have to play Gino Vannelli and Player. I’ll hit you later. Good Morning Everyone! Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂

    Philip Ingram used to KILL me on I Wanna Be Closer.
    Star of A Story is so simple, it’s luscious. But all the ballads on Too Hot to Handle are such…not overproduced, with Johnnie’s effortless falsetto just kissing the track. Ummm.
    This playlist was yummy, EJ. I ::heart:: you right now. 😉

  5. @Len: Thanks again! This was really appreciated.
    @Myke: That’s my favorite cut too. I really think I played that track to death.
    @Nastybastard: man, where have you been? That’s one of my favorites, too.
    @NinaMM: All of the ballads on Too Hot To Handle are simply classics. The group had so much promise, I just wish they would have been out there more.
