That song....

You ever have a song no matter the mood, situation, environment or time it automatically makes you start jamming? In my life I passed through a ton of songs, partly due to growing up in an African American household with predominately nothing but woman(Black-Woman seem to love R&B music for some reason), I've heard it all from the stylistics to Whitney Houston on Saturday afternoons while cleaning up. As a male I'm not "Supposed" to like R&B but for some reason I rather hear some skinny dude croon about getting his heart broken than a Want to be poser rap about how much invisible drugs he's sold or how many people he sent to the funeral home.


Since we are now living in digital world, we have a ton of accessible outlets to get music right at the tip of our fingers. So with that a lot of music becomes somewhat disposable because you hear some much that whatever you like must stand out for you to keep going back an forth to it. However I'm not a radio head because I would be damned to listen to the radio to listen to the same 10-12 songs all day, especially living in New York where DJ's get paid the most to play the corniest records all day. So I mostly hit up my blog connects or through word of mouth from friends about the newest stuff out. I was a little disappointed at myself because this summer while at a block party in Brooklyn, I heard a song which I couldn't remember the name of and it sounded so hot, the beat was good, melody was right and the singing was somewhat offbeat but fit just right. So if you've ever been to a party you know the DJ never plays the whole song and if he does play the song you hear the intro for a good 5-6 Min's before they even get into the song, and please don't let the crowd be hype or the DJ himself because he will be screaming and hollering all over the song. So I'm grooving and dancing, drink in my hand of course , enjoying myself then the songs abruptly ends and I hear the dream " I love your girl" So I'm instantly sad, but the feeling drowns fast because my brain alerts me that I like this song as well, so I continue dancing and having a good time.


The next day I forced myself to listen to the radio, because I HAD to find out the name of that song and who sang it. Sure enough big headed funk Master flex Came on Dropping bombs and hollering outlandish foolishness and all I remember was "NY We gone smooth it out, we real big right now with that fantasia record" I was hype because the first clue to my puzzle was solved, I knew who sang the song, now my next mission was to find out the title so I could download, so I cranked the volume up a little louder on the radio and I heard he sing " When I see youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu" So i figured that had to be it, so I ran to lime wire and sure enough that was the title and please believe that song was instantly thrown on every mix CD I made for the car and Instantly became the #1 song on my play list in itunes. I love this song so much and I know it must decrease my manliness because its a girl singing about her feelings about a guy, but what the hell I'm applying it to my situation. So this is that one song for me, Incase you haven't seen the video and were under a rock like me

That always happens to me. I am constantly trying to find the title of songs. I discovered Yes.com Or I type in a lyric of the song I remember and type it in google.

I can do that with albums. Like right now, I have Ryan Leslie's joint on rotation. I've been listening to his CD for about 2 weeks straight now,lol. But When it comes to songs on the radio, I be on it. I know the artist, title, all that, lol.
