Cupid's Hunt: Certified Crazy

February 13, 2009

in Music

Last year I participated in Cupid’s Hunt, and I loved it. Nobody loves love songs as much I do, I promise! I am an R&B junkie, mostly because of the love songs R&B pumps out.  Anyway, I would be remiss not to participate in Cupid’s Hunt this year.

I could have compiled a list of my favorite love songs, but that would have been difficult for me and my collection. There are just so many great ones to choose from. My love song collection is DEEP, covering many facets of love and relationships. I decided to take a different approach to my selection. This year, my playlist is called Certified Crazy: all the songs about love that make you think, say, or do crazy things. Basically, it’s a crazy chick’s playlist (but equal opportunity for men). I know this isn’t exactly the most lovey dovey playlist in honor of Valentine’s Day…but not everybody has the happiest and loveliest of Valentine’s Days. At times love (or what you think love is) makes you think some crazy thoughts. It’s not always fun and games. I’m here to keep it real, and yes this may mean I am a Valentine’s Day grinch. I’ll be dat, at least until I have a Valentine’s Day that changes my disposition. So for now, I am on strike.

01 I’d Rather Go Blind – Etta James
02 BreakDown – Mariah Carey ft. Bone Thugs N Harmony
03 Halfcrazy – Musiq Soulchild
04 Caught Out There – Kelis
05 So Gone – Monica
06 Ring The Alarm – Beyonce
07 Breakin’ Dishes – Rihanna
08 Circle – Marques Houston
09 Ice Box – Omarion
10 Outta My Head – Teedra Moses
11 Bust Your Windows – Jazmine Sullivan

Make sure you check out all the other playlists going on with the Cupid’s Hunt project. I am sure I will enjoy everyone else’s playlists, lovey dovey or not. 😉

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours.

Cupid’s Hunt, eh? Your love of R&B is unparalleled.
This year you should come party with Cupid’s Lab. We’re throwing a “Not My Valentine” Party tonight at M1-5 Lounge, in Tribeca. 7-10pm. Nothing like a little anti-Valentine action, door prizes, and cheap drinks to take the edge off the day. 🙂

Hi Liz – I had to comment after seeing the list. Starting off with Etta shows a lot of class! Love the Monica and Teedra.
I’ll be back much more often.
Happy V’Day

What about “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore” or is that not crazy enough?


Roy February 16, 2009 at 10:33 AM

or “Thin line between love & hate”, she damn near killed him!!

I am an R&B junkie as well… All day everyday thats all I do. Had to start a blog just to compartmentalize all of it. Love your playlist though

very, very good list. as a fellow junkie, in solidarity, i’d add “Maybe” by N.E.R.D., and Through the Fire, by Chaka Khan. Right on the edge of crazy and sane.
