My Apologies to Louis & Barry

Dedicated Reader Louis pointed out that I left off Mr. Love Unlimited himself, Barry White, from the sensuous mix I created that has been circling the Interwebs (found here). Although there might not be a legitimate justification for this omission, I will say that my reasoning was to mix it up enough that all sorts of varied Love-Makers could enjoy the mix. But after looking back, and listening to a whole lot of Mr. White, I have seen the error of my ways.

Here is a man who, although he has become (in terms of semiotics) a cliché symbolic of only his most famous works, is probably one of the best composers and conductors of the previous millennium. His dedication to music and love as a life's work can not be overlooked, nevermind that exceptional baritone voice. One time he even used his epic vibrato to drive all the snakes out of Springfield.

St. Blacktric?

In summation, Barry White should not be left off any mix of any sort, love, breakup, workout, shopping, eating, dog walking, lallygagging or spelunking. Do you think I left a song off of my mix? Do you have a special song that gets you in "the mood?" Please make like Louis and put it in the comments and lets see if we can't get a community mix going, huh? Lets take this (Love's) Theme as far as it can go, why stop now?

Song #76: Barry White - I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More, Baby


  1. It takes a big man to admit when he has erred. I forgive you, my friend. And let's assume Barry White forgives you too.

  2. I like to make love to Hulk Hogan's "Hulkster in Heaven".
