Twisted Mix Tape: No Regrets

Say it Rah-shay By Jan 07, 2014 5 Comments


I am back this week to link up with Jen’s Twisted MixTape and the theme is all about Past Mistakes. Thank you Jen for a moment to pour out my heart!


Michael Bolton Said I Loved You…But I Lied

While I have never played willie nilly with someone’s heart I had to include this song. It’s deep (tongue firmly in cheek)!

Said I loved you but I lied
‘Cause this is more than love I feel inside
Said I loved you but I was wrong
‘Cause love could never ever feel so strong
Said I loved you but I lied

He is singing that he loves someone so much that the words I love you are inadequate.
Now, let’s take a moment to talk about the video. We would be remiss if we did not discuss the hair, his shirt open to his navel and the bird flying around.

Phoebe Snow – No Regrets

When I was a kid my mom and aunt played this record so much and my sister an I ragged on it but Phoebe Snow is that stuff. Phoebe’s voice is smooth, slick and plays with melodies like nobody’s business. Yes, the song is about feelings one has at the end of the affair, but so what? Phoebe owns this song.

Miss Otis Regrets

I could not find a version of Ella singing it but will settle for this Carmen Mcrae version.

This song is the ultimate cautionary tale for side chicks: stop checking phones, creeping on facebook and emails. Dump that knucklehead and keep it moving or you’ll wind up in jail. Cole Porter knew what was up when he wrote this song 60 years ago.

Cats in the Cradle

Cause what’s a mix tape without a little guilt? Each day I look at my daughter and she looks and acts so much like me. It scares the snot out of me! I call her a mini me but when she takes it to heart I get nervous.

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings – I Learned the Hard Way

My grandmother always says a hard head makes a soft behind and she aiin’t lying. Sometimes Its fool me once, shameon you, Fool me 73 times and let me gice you one more time.

Please Forgive Me – Bryan Adams

Dudes! This is the second Bryan Adams song on my list. Trippy. This song gets a spot on the list because it is such a begging song.

    I love this list! I was familiar with Phoebe Snow, but I don't think I ever really listened, at least not to this song. I have my Beats on right now and the sound is FREAKING AMAZING! Thank you so much for playing and especially for that song!

  2. Wow! So many awesome songs! My dad used to play Phoebe Snow a lot, too, and though i thought I hated it as a child, as an adult I really like her music! The only song on this list I don’t like is Please Forgive Me. While I like most Bryan Adams songs, for some reason, this one always annoyed me -lol. Thanks for the great list and memories!

    Great selection of songs!! It was a nice flashback from my youth when my dad would play those tunes while we cleaned house on a Sat. morning!! Fun!!

  4. Debi says:
