the soundtrack of my life…

I love music…

Posted on: November 23, 2008

I originally saw this over at Eb’s spot, Renaissance Black Woman, then I saw it again at Brran’s, The Black Lounge, so I finally decided to give into the meme and do it myself!

1. Song that makes you dance, no matter what:

“Gypsy Woman” by Crystal Waters, it’s the song that no matter when it’s played makes me breakout in my “gay dance” and I start vogueing and spinning…imagine that! LMAO

2. Song you’d use to tell someone you love them:

“This Is My Promise” by The Temptations, my uncle put me onto this song. It’s on their Phoenix Rising album.  One time I went to visit my aunt and uncle in St. Louis, my uncle started serenading my aunt so everytime I hear it I think about the love they have for each other after almost 50 years.

3. Song that has made you sit down and analyze the lyrics:

“The 6th Sense” by Common

4. Song you like that a two-year old would like:

“ABC” by The Jackson 5, brran I’ve got to agree with you on that one!

5. Song that gives you an energy boost:

“Spazz” or “Anti-Matter” by N.E.R.D, really the whole Seeing Sounds album makes me want to lose my rhythm and wild out (in a good way, of course!) Like I always want to just go and have fun when I hear those songs, no matter what my mood or energy level was before hearing them.

6. A song you and your grandparents would like:

“My Girl” by The Temptations, it was one of my grandma’s favorite songs.

7. Song you really liked when you were in high school that you still like now:

“Crush On You” by Lil Kim, I always think of my girls from high school.  When the song came out, they decided to don colored wig just like Kim did in the video and head to our Black Women’s Society party.  There was a lot of drama behind those wigs, and to this day we still laugh about how silly they looked!

8. A sad song that would be in the soundtrack of the movie about your life:

“Lonely’s the Only Company” by Maxwell or “So Alone” by Men At Large

9. Peppy song that would start the opening credits in the movie of your life:

“Move On Up” by Cutis Mayfield, I love this song and something about it has always made me think about the opening credits of a movie or TV show.

10. A good song from a genre of music that no one would guess you liked:

“Toxicity” by System of a Down

11. Song you think should have been playing when you were born:

“September” by Earth, Wind & Fire

12. Favorite duet artists:

I’m gonna have to say Rick James and Teena Marie.

13. A favorite song you completely disagree with:

“Mary Jane” by Rick James, I don’t do narcotics and never have, but, clearly, Rick James was in a long relationship with narcotics of ALL forms!

14. Song that you like despite the fact that your IQ level drops several points every time you listen to it:

“Gucci Bandana” by Gucci Mane, Soulja Boy & Shawty Lo…just look at who’s on the track, that should explain why my IQ level drops LMAO

15. Smoothe song for relaxing:

“Seguranca (Security)” by Maxwell or “You Will Rise” by Sweetback

16. A song you would send to someone you can’t stand:

Either “B.A.N” by David Banner or “F*ck Off” by Tony Matterhorn or “Yahh B!tch” by Soulja Boy…is it bad that I could keep going??? LMAO

17. Favorite political track (Or song with a message):

“Freedom” (The R&B version) from The Black Panther Soundtrack

18. Favorite track from a band considered a “super group”:

“I Thought She Knew” by *NSYNC, it was the last song on their No Strings Attached album and, by far, was my favorite song on that whole album because it was a cappella and displayed their true talent.

19. A song that makes you reminisce about good times with a family member:

“Crush on You” by The Jets, it reminds me of when my cousin used to take me to my basketball games in elementary school.  She drove a red Toyota Celica and she would pop that tape in and we’d be jammin’! LOL OR “Your Sweetness” by The Good Girls, my cousins and I used to make up dance routines to it back in the day!

20. Favorite song from a soundtrack:

Either “Car Wash” from Car Wash, “Freedom” (The R&B version) from The Black Panther Soundtrack or “U Will Know” by Black Men United from Jason’s Lyric

21. Your favorite song(s) RIGHT now:

All of Maxwell’s albums/songs – since seeing him live a couple of weeks ago, I can’t seem to get enough of the man; “Drank in my Cup” by Electrik Red – gets me hella crunk, no matter what time of the day it is; “Arab Money” by Busta Rhymes – I’m still trying to figure out if there are real words being said during the “Arab” part; the new Ludacris and Kanye albums – CRAZY!
