the soundtrack of my life…

Archive for the ‘Music Makes Me High’ Category

Ok, please just go along with me on this one… (you should know that this is gonna be EXTREMELY random if I had to start off with a disclaimer! LMAO)

So yesterday, I was folding some clothes and watching MTV Jams (as I do often) and all of a sudden this video comes on:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “Incomplete“, posted with vodpod

Yep, that’s right. That’s the video for Sisqo’s Incomplete.  Now this was not the first time that I’ve seen that video, but for some reason, this was the first time that all of these questions popped into my head ALL.AT.ONCE!  And what did I do?  You guessed it, ran right over to my laptop to blog about it! LOL

  1. Why did Sisqo feel the need to squint his eyes all the damn time?  I mean did he think it made him look sexxy?  Because I just think it looks like he just got his eyes dilated and needs to put on some sunglasses…
  2. Why did those photos of him and Diamond look SO extra fake?  Especially that one where he was standing behind her with his hand on her shoulder.  Like that was supposed to give the illusion that he was towering over her…yeah, right! SMH
  3. Am I the only one wondering why he was on that big ass bed, in his Timbs???  Kneegrow gitcho feet off my bed!
  4. Clearly, he was not walking that dog, that dog was walking him!  That sucka was damn near bigger than him on all fours, imagine if he tried to play with Sisqo just standing on his hind legs?
  5. And giving a bottle to that white tiger? Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit! Yet again, another animal that could have his way with Sisqo’s munchkin ass!

Umm…ok, I’m done.  I feel much better now that I’ve gotten that off my chest!

And now back to your regularly scheduled program…LMAO

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!

I present to you Proton!
They just dropped a new mixtape called Red & Purple Vol. 1.  Here’s how they describe their music on their MySpace page: Take two MCs raised on a diet of golden era hip-hop, a craft forged during the outbreak and subsequent takeover by glitz and glamour types, give them a sound-scape that ghetto girls and frat boys can bounce to and you’ve got PROTON.

It’s been a minute since I’ve recommended some music to check out. Here are a couple of recently released albums that I’ve checked out…and so should you!

JAZMINE SULLIVAN – FEARLESS

You already knew I was gonna tell you to pick up Jazmine Sullivan’s album ‘Fearless’.  I mean, how can you NOT pick it up!  It’s a great album!  (By the way, Eb the Celeb I TOTALLY agree with you on the track listing…I had to take you’re suggestion and switch things around!)  I can’t wait until November to see her live when she’s here with Maxwell!

WAYNE BRADY – A LONG TIME COMING

No, I haven’t lost my mind!  You really should check his album out.  It really quite good.  Like for real.

There are still a few albums that I need to check out — especially Joe and Ne-Yo; plus there are a bunch of albums being released in the next few weeks…

I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since Aaliyah died. The time has flown by. I still remember where I was and what I was doing when I found out…

Every time I hear an Aaliyah track, I can’t help but think about which artists wouldn’t even be hot if she were still alive…
