    Neither, IMO. Her Lovers Rock album is full of awesome songs. Came out 20 years ago and the production still sounds perfect. Such a warm, rich sounding album. One of my favorites.

    Why chose? They are sorta the "Before" and "After" songs, I'm guessing.

    When I was 21 I lived with several buddies, we would go to this blues bar all the time, they had great live music. One of my buddies was a real womanizer, he would often not end up going home with us and would be dropped off at the house the next morning by some random women.
    "Smooth Operator" was on the juke box at the blues bar, we would always play it when he showed up. It was his theme song. Every time I hear that song I think of him.

    Love the line in Se7en (think it was this movie) when a clueless Brad Pitt reads out the name of Marquis de Sade, pronounces it a la the artist in question here

    She’s great, I think that I’ll have to go with “Smooth Operator”.
