My music guru Micah tagged me.
Now I'm supposed to write about seven songs I'm digging at this moment.
My Humps by Alanis Morissette. The video is a riot and you realize, once hearing the song sung by a capable musician, just how absurd the lyrics are. Alanis rocks - she can turn a sow's ear into a silk purse.
Rehab by Amy Winehouse. This chick can really wail. She's got the pipes of some Motown soul singer, and I can totally relate to some of her music. If you haven't already, please take the time to check her out - I really can't say enough about her.
Young Folks by Peter, Bjorn and John. I heard this song when I emceed a fashion show and now I can't get it out. I love how it's so sunny. This tune makes me want to skip around town and splash in puddles with umbrellas and get into whipped cream fights with someone. I just want to jump around and shake my ass when I hear this song, and I guess that means it's just marvelous.
Save Room by John Legend. This guy's voice is sexual chocolate. A combination of jazz and pop, it makes my ears do a triple take in that I mistake him for Connick. Every man should have a copy of Legend's latest cd. It's like kryptonite.
Irreplaceable by Beyonce. Ladies, how many times have you wanted to spout these verses off to some jerk? You must not know 'bout me, you must not know 'bout me... Call up that chick and see if she's home. Oops, I bet you thought I didn't know. What did you think I was putting you out for? The song's not the best ever, I'll admit. But there's something about an amazing chick like Beyonce being able to dig out some of the same emotions I've felt before...
This Is Why I'm Hot by Mims. The tune actually reminds me of another song I like. My sister, Bridge lives in Atlanta and so she's kind of grown fond of the ghetto culture (okay, she'd kill me if she knew I said that) and the related music... Bridge and I had a discussion of this song a week ago... yeah, that's how we roll, yo.
What Goes Around by Justin Timberlake. My friend GOP Big Wig and I have a special bond - we both love JT. We went to go see him three years ago and we almost went last month, but the OSU Buckeyes played in the tournament in Lexington and so, well, that trumped JT. He's got moves, he's got tunes, and I bet he's got skills. I'm getting hot already...
Now I get to tag some other folks. I'm tagging D-Money, Southern Son and Natty.
