Saturday Jam (John Legend)

posted in: Things That I Like | 0

I like this song. A LOT! He had me with ‘Get Lifted’. John can do no wrong in my eyes/ears. Enjoy the Saturday Jam.

I know this is weird, but I can’t help thinking how trusting he must be to let the woman in the video touch his face (and lips). Yeah, its weird. But I have a thing about people touching my face. Eeeuw. I don’t know where your hands have been. Ha ha ha. I’m gonna stop.

Friday Jam (Will Young)

This is my Friday JAM!! I love Will Young and there is something very George Michael about this song. I love it! I even like the music video. I’m always happy when people aren’t following the ‘formula’.

You KNOW I’m gonna try this with a trolley/shopping cart right? Ha ha ha. I am a FOOL.

Crazy

I’m LOVE Aerosmith. I jokingly call Steve Tyler ‘my husband’. My friends think I’m crazy (excuse the pun). I blast this song loud in my car when I need a ‘lift’.

The video is fine, if you like that kind of thing. But the song… WINNER!!

Way Back When (Toni Braxton)

It was the late 90’s and Toni Braxton’s Secrets album was EVERYTHING!! My dad brought it home one day and I listened to it EVERY day for months. I loved her first album, so I had been looking forward to Secrets. It didn’t disappoint. Many of the songs on the album were written by Babyface. And I don’t need to tell you that the man is a songwriting GENIUS. If you don’t believe me go listen to Beyonce’s ‘Best Thing I Never Had’, he had something to do with it. Babyface is one of my favourite songwriters :)

There was a song on the album that was written and produced by R.Kelly; I Don’t Want To. I was singing this song in the car yesterday with the Manager Lady. That made me want to post in on here. Man…

Tell me that song didn’t touch you in a tender place? Ha ha ha ha ha. It touched me. It really did.

Bearded and What Now?

A few weeks ago while I was filling up (my car) I saw a man with a beard. He was so HOT I immediately tweeted that I would kiss him AND his beard. I can’t say that I was a beard girl before… But I think I am becoming one. Thanks to the tumblr Bearded and Black I can (safely) look at some hotties with beards. This is a safe space, so no judgement!

I visited the blog today and saw the most talented and good looking Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def)

Law’ ha’ mercy!!

This made me find one my MOST favourite-est songs by this dude, check out the video below.

BOP TV used to play music videos late at night and I used to stay up on a Friday or Saturday night to see this one.

Fine and Mellow

To call myself a fan of Billie Holiday, would not be enough. I’m a lover of both Billie and her music. I remember when I heard her for the first time, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the ‘raw’. I didn’t know whether I was supposed to observe it (from a distance) or question if it had been there forever.

Miss Holiday

I could listen to Billie all day, wake up the next day and do it again. I love what she says at the beginning of the video about never singing a song the same. The music is such a big part of her that she cannot separate herself from it. God Bless Miss Holiday.
