Music is My.....

I love music... from gospel to soul to rock...

Music is therapeutic.... it soothes... it comforts.

Music is my medicine after a long day... a dose of music helps me through the day (Pandora)... it's my remedy after or during an argument...

The collaboration of the instruments and the vocalizations have me dancing in my seat at work, belting out loud at home at 1:00 am and provides a supreme stress relief on the subway coming into work and going home.

My faves are too numerous to post but here are several lyrics that speak to my heart... for the moment...

"I felt Dizzy, Sonya, heaven, and Miles between my thighs / Better than love, we made delicious" ~"Love Rain", Jill Scott

"When it's stormy outside, it's calm in my heart, with you in my arms / And when you're away from me, I wish it would rain 'cause it's always the same"
~"Making Love in the Rain", Herb Alpert, Janet Jackson & Lisa Keith

"She is my girl.. my world.. my girl, And I'm so mighty mighty proud about it, Ain't no shame in my game, Oh.. No, I wanna show you off, I wanna let them know, Let the whole world know I'm.., Loving my baby now, Loving my baby now, Ain't nobody, I said ain't no lady lady lady better than my baby, See I'm so mighty mighty mighty proud.. mighty proud, Babe, it's makin me dance, Makin me dance" ~"Fortunate", Maxwell

"From the first time I saw your face/Girl, I knew I had to have you/I wanted to wrap you with my warm embrace/Visions of your lovely face/ All my love is for you/Whatever you want I will do/You're the only one I want in my life/For you I'll make that sacrifice" ~"Let's Chill", Guy

"You're different and special in every way imaginable/You love me from my hair follicles to my toenails /You got me feeling like the breeze, easy and free and lovely and new /Oh when you touch me I just can't control it /When you touch me, I just can't hold it / The emotion inside of me, I can feel it" ~"He Loves Me (Lyzel in E Flat)", Jill Scott

"Don't think twice of our love, I love you but it's hard to explain, and I'm hoping that you're feeling the same way, You know that all of my, feelings are inside, and verbally I tend to forget
how much I L-O-V-E U Really means" ~"Lately", Tyrese

"When 2 are in love / They'll whisper secrets only they 2 can hear
When 2 are in love / Their stomachs will pound every time the other comes near
When 2 are in love / Falling leaves will appear 2 them like slow motion rain
When 2 are in love / The speed of their hips can be faster than a runaway train
~"When 2 R in Love", Prince

And when this song comes on, you know the party has started....

"To find a love like ours is rare these days / 'Cause you've shown me happiness, yes, in so many ways / I look in the mirror, and I'm glad to see / Laughter in the eyes where tears used to be" ~"Your Precious Love", Marvin Gaye & Tammy Terrelle

"You see there will always be someone, taller, darker / Maybe wit a little of cheese than I got
But really, shawty you don't need nobody else / Cause baby I am (I am) the opening act (the opening act) / The headliner (the headliner) and the after party"
~"Movin' Cool (The After Party)", Outkast

"If you give me half a chance / I'll prove this to you / I will be patience, kind, faithful and true / To a man who loves music / A man who loves art / Respect's the spirit world / And thinks with his heart" ~"Ready for Love", India Arie

"Now you won't find me at no store / I have no time for manicures / With you it's never either or / 'Cause nothing even matters no more" ~"Nothing Even Matters", Lauryn Hill & D'Angelo

"Touch me and I feel your femininity /Girl you're the lady women want to be / Softly you move when you're making love to me / Love me every night with femininity"
~"Feminity", Eric Benet

The entire song lyrics to "I'll Never Leave" & "Heart of a Woman" ~R. Kelley, Chocolate Factory
