This song was EVERYTHING this time last year. It never got old for some reason. In fact, I’m listening to it right now and getting that old feeling back!! I LOVE CHRIS BROWN!!
So that concludes my 30 day music challenge and I actually finished one!!! So proud of myself. How are you guys doing on your reading challenges? I’ve been paying attention….I know some of you are behind lol.
Now THIS is the R. Kelly that I grew to love. I can honestly say that being a child of the 80’s and growing up in the 90’s, we truly had the LAST of the greatest music. I used to listen to this song all the time. This was back in the day when I didn’t have CDs and had to record it off the radio. *sighs* The good old days, lol…..
Now this song makes me feel just a tad guilty. I am miles away from home and sometimes I don’t even call. No one but my brother calls me….so sometimes I only feel the need to make sure I talk to him on regular basis. This song is all about families…relationships that I really don’t have.
This is a song that I tried to master for years in tryouts for different honor bands when I was younger. My fingers DO NOT move this fast, lol.
I started playing the clarinet when I was 10 years old. I learned to play other instruments, but the clarinet has always been my principal instrument. When I was a music education major, this piece was my jury/performance piece. It was a real challenge to learn because college was the first time that I ever had to learn to play with an accompaniment. I actually miss those days….
This is totally contrary to my stance right now….which is that I do not want to have a funeral. I have a real aversion to them at this point. Cremate me, have a nice memorial, and go to KFC. But in all seriousness, if I had to choose a song to play it would be this one.
My Latest Greatest Inspiration – Teddy Pendergrass
I know this sounds very “The Wood” of me to want this song played at my wedding, lol. The first time that I ever remember hearing this song was when I heard first saw this movie. However, this song has special meaning for me and Boo Thang. This song was playing while we were expressing the deepest of our real feelings for each other for the very first time. It was the moment that we decided to look at our own happiness and let our respective toxic relationships go and get together. Every time I hear it, I smile.
Take Me (I’m Yours) – Johnny Gill
This is one of those “baby, baby, please…I’ve done wrong, I’m sorry” songs. The emotion in it just makes me cry when I hear it. Johnny meant that shit!! This song definitely lets me stay inside my feelings.
Good Life – Kanye West f. T-Pain
How can you not cheer up when you hear this song?! It always puts me in a good place mentally. I may not be living my ultimate version of the good life, but I have life. That in itself is a happy day.
Caught Out There – Kelis
This song allows me to express so much anger and pain!! Just the screams and anguish. It does a body good sometimes. Mostly it allows me to tire myself so that I’m too tired to be angry. Where is Kelis?
