Twisted MixTape – One Night Stand

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am

So, while I certainly don’t condone the action that makes up the topic for this weeks Twisted MixTape blog hop, I can’t deny that One Night Stands have been the fodder for some amazing music over the years.

One of my all-time favorite songs is “Save Tonight” by Eagle Eye Cherry.

I have always, always enjoyed this song.

It’s so upbeat and gets my toes to tapping and if you don’t listen to the lyrics, you can pretend it’s a happy little ditty.

(video has nothing to do with the lyrics, so that helps)


“All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You” by Heart is a song that fits into this category that makes my skin crawl.


I dated this guy in college and it was his favorite song.

He would totally rock out to it and it gave me the heebie-jeebies.


“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” by the Shirelles.

Even in 1960, they were singing about this topic, although I have a feeling it was a bit more taboo to discuss.

Great song and I like that fact that she is being cautious about the whole thing in this one.


“If Only for Tonight” by Luther Vandross.

Oh, Luther.


Bonnie Raitt has always captured me with her voice, and one of my favorites of hers is “I Can’t Make You Love Me.”

Such a great tune and she sings it so plaintively.

Just a beautiful song and when you hear it, you just feel so badly for her.

Then you remember she’s a multimillionaire, country singer and you feel less sorry.

But still sorry.


What would the 70’s have been without Juice Newton?


“Just Call Me Angel of the Morning” fits the category and I was singing this song LONG before I had any idea what the words meant.


  1. The Shirelles made my list too! Great minds think alike!

  2. I think my favorite in this category is The Dave Matthews Band song “Say Good-bye”. So, so good.

  3. we both used Save Tonight, excellent.

    Good pull with the Bonnie Raitt. That’s just a perfect song.

  4. When Jen posted this list topic several weeks ago, the first one that went on it was that Luther song. Not only is his voice shiver-worthy, but that song in particular, draws a tear or two every time.

  5. Note to self: refrain from dating people who give you the heebie jeebies. With, or without the inclusion of music by Heart.

    Also, the choice of Juice was genius.

  6. We had so many similarities! Bonnie Raitt, yeah I don’t feel bad for her….especially since that song isn’t all that bad sounding so she made good money on her sad story. LOL

  8. Great list! Oh Juice! I never thought about what the words meant to that song either! Now that I am enlightened I don’t know if I can sing it to the boy anymore 😉
