Twisted Mix Tape Tuesday - Cheaters Version

The theme this week for the Twisted Mix Tape is Cheating Songs.  There are so many to choose from, and as usual, country music offers a wide selection.  Unfortunately I used one of my favorites, "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood, last week, so here are the 5 I narrowed it down to for this week.

"The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" - Vicki Lawrence/Reba McEntire

Vicki Lawrence did this song first, but in a switch for me, I actually prefer the newer version done by Reba McEntire.  This could have easily fit in last week's category too.  Cheating wives better watch out for southern sisters!

"Ruby" - Kenny Rogers

 Loved me some Kenny Rogers when I was a kid, and I always thought Ruby was an uncaring bitch.


"The Thunder Rolls" - Garth Brooks

Another country song that speaks for itself.
 

 "Tempted" - Squeeze

I have to say, watching this video cracked me up.  This was the early, early days of music video.  I could have totally been one of those girls dancing (sort of) in the background! 

"Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'" - Journey



 Saving the best for last, no mix is truly complete without my beloved Journey, and they don't disappoint with this song.  Another classic video that makes you wonder if men weren't always in pain in those tight pants.

    1. I don't listen to much "new" country, but I love the old stuff. And Journey is the best band EVER!

  2. Reba really does know how to spin a country story into a song and her videos reflected that as well.

    1. Thanks for giving me something to blog about at least once a week! LOL I'm enjoying remembering old songs I hadn't thought of in years.
