Straying from the traditional brashness of most murder ballads, this mix is simply comprised of unassuming, sweet songs of murder.
All tracks feature lovers murdering lovers, strangers murdering strangers, murder as a metaphor, & even a dramatic homage to a mutual suicidal cliff jump.
Sadly, Richard Marx's "Hazard (Acoustic Version)" did not make the final tracklisting.
