Twisted MixTape Can’t Get Enough of You

Say it Rah-shay By Dec 12, 2013 29 Comments


mixtape-jenkehl-200This week’s Twisted Mix Tape is all about songs for that person you just can’t quit. The one who gets up under your skin, makes you grin foolishly, turn red in the face and then start the doodling on the side of the books while you’re supposed to be concentrating on work and stuff.






Ahh! Love!



Obsession – Animotion

This whole song, which I sang with full gusto back in the day and would now hesitate to sing in front of my kid, is all about becoming the person YOU think someone wants to get them them to want you.

Check it:

You are an obsession
You’re my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me

So. Yeah…when I was younger and less sure of myself I can recall a few crushes that made me feel like I was a mess. Surely I wasn’t the only one?


Check it:

When you were here before

Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so f*cking special

Every Breath You Take – The Police


I feel like this is an easy entry but whatevs. Seriously, this song is not just an ode to loving someone but a creepy Big Brother is watching tune.

Check it:

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you

I Will Always Love You – Whitney Houston

This one, seemingly an ode to a love that will never end, is actually a passive aggressive tune to make the partner in the relationship know that their forthcoming love and happiness is not really going to be celebrated but will be looked on with regret and some hate. The lyrics should really be “It’s not you, but me” the worst way to break it off with someone.

Check it:

If I should stay

I would only be in your way
So I’ll go but I know
I’ll think of you every step of the way

I Put A Spell On You – Screamin’ Jay Hawkins


And lastly, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins who is going to scare the women into loving him.

Check it:

I put a spell on you

‘Cause you’re mine

You better stop the things you do
I ain’t lyin’
No I ain’t lyin’
