Who Would You Rather Creep With? ‘Part-Time’ or ‘Secret Lovers’?

stevie_wonder_atlantic_starr.JPG1985 was a good year for adultery. After all, there was not only one but two chart-topping odes to getting your sneaky freak on: Stevie Wonder's "Part-Time Lover" and Atlantic Starr's "Secret Lovers." Both of these songs were about something so wrong, but they sounded oh-so right.

Stevie's uptempo ditty--with Luther Vandross on backup no less--about "undercover passion on the run" was a breakthrough hit when it dropped. Off his In Square Circle album, "Part-Time Lover" hit number one on four charts simultaneously, making him the first artist in history to do so. Yeah, Stevie was the man even when singing about cheating.

Atlantic Starr's Barbara Weathers and David Lewis sang their faces off on "Secret Lovers." This slow jam about two married lovers was one of the band's biggest hits and is still a staple on urban radio. This song just makes you want to sing along with it--and I'm sure we all have--even if you don't agree with the subject matter.  

So if you were gonna creep (not that we're encouraging that type of behavior), what would your soundtrack be?
