Friday Mixtape! (with a bonus video)


Remember those sappy radio dedications we all used to make back in the 80s and 90s? They were the perfect way to let girlfriends or boyfriends know they were loved, missed or in some cases that they were a secret crush.

Of particular note is perhaps the sexiest (non-Prince) song of all time “(Lay Your Head On My) Pillow” by Tony! Toni! Tone! and the Five Man Acoustical Jam version of Tesla’s epic sing-a-long anthem “Love Song.”

BONUS: Who doesn't love a little Nick Offerman and FIDLAR on a Friday? (WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT)
