Barbara Mandrell If Loving You Is Wrong exp
Have we discussed how much I love this song? How I used to walk around singing this at like 9 years old, having no idea what it meant? [say nothing cruel, please] It has that sort of cheesy, yet uber slinky 70's arrangement. You know, listen to it in a fern bar while drinking Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante. I love the part where she all but growls, "Am I wrong to hungah for the gentleness of your touch?" Barbara was known as a good girl type, but she had no problem interpreting this song as if it was backed by an orchestra of vibrating pussies.
Now, LeAnn Rimes has just covered it, but really, Barbara's version pisses all over LeAnn's tribute. The video above is a live 80's performance that's not quite as... craven... as the studio version. Please, everyone, click on the green arrow above and crank this tune. Cool people will gather in your office or cube and celebrate the swinger that you are.
Krissy, there is a reference to you above. We need a phone date.
