Sunday Triple Play - 11/9/14

Sunday Triple Play is back this week and I'm feeling the need for some slinky and sensual cuts.  First up is the super sexy "Breakfast Can Wait" from Prince's new album Art Official Age.  Afterwards is my vote for the greatest love jam of all-time, The Flamingos' gorgeous "I Only Have Eyes For You" from 1959.  If this doesn't get you in the mood, then perhaps Depeche Mode's red-hot, uncensored clip for "Soothe My Soul" from Delta Machine will calibrate your engine.  If not, there's always Barry White and in his case, resistance is futile.

Prince - "Breakfast Can Wait"

The Flamingos - "I Only Have Eyes For You"

Depeche Mode - "Soothe My Soul"
