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 heard somewhere that this song was supposed to send a message to people, but it was really stupid. What I really think was that someone got fed up with a couple people they knew personally and made a diss song. Either way the result was HILARIOUS to me. Sometimes when I feel a certain way about a person, some of these lyrics pop in my head. I can’t help it. I’m rude inside my mind.
“Read a book, read a book, read a *%*^#*^$# book!”
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?
Talking In His Sleep – Toni Braxton
If I had a favorite album of all time, I would have to say it was Toni Braxton’s Secrets. I dub this album my favorite because no matter how old I am, I can pop this CD in and jam out like it was…..well 1996 when it came out lol. It is hard to believe that I was 13 when this CD came out. THIS ALBUM IS 15 YEARS OLD!!! How can you not love it? Unbreak My Heart, How Could An Angel Break My Heart…..magic!!!
