This is a first for me. I've never been tagged before! And I've got school girl excitement right now. Thanks to my homie, True Urban Queen.
"List seven songs that you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your spring/summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to."
1) For Real... by Amel Larrieux
It's not a new song but it's a fly summer song that I love listening to on my morning commute to the j-o-b.
2) The Way That I Love You... Ashanti
While Ashanti is not my most favorite singer, I love the music on this song.
3) Me... by Erykah Badu
I am so feeling New Amerykah and this song just like "Cleva" from Mama's Gun tells of her imperfections and she's simply saying that she is who she is, she's not perfect but she's accepting and loving herself.
4) Sweet Love... by Anita Baker
It's certainly not a new song but I love it! It's classic Anita (Rapture) and it moves me now like it did in '86. "With all my heart, I love you baby, stay with me and you will see, My arms will hold you baby, Bever leave, 'Cause, I believe I'm in love, Sweet Love" Whew!
5) Heaven Sent... by Keyshia Cole
"I wanna be the one who you believe in your heart is sent from... Sent from heaven, And there's a piece of me who leaves when you're gone, Because you're sent from... Sent from Heaven"
6) Got 2 Be Down... by Robin Thicke feat. Faith Evans
"Got that lovin / Got that seed / Got that sugar / Got that sweet / Got that money got that beat / Got that whatever u need / Oh I can't hide it you're my world / Got me thinking Im no good / Chocolate lover you're so sweet / Got me thinkin on my feet - It's got that funky beat and Faith's vocals - just feelin' it!
7) Praise Him In Advance... Marvin Sapp
No list would be complete without Gospel... I love this song a little more than "Never Would Have Made It" which is my next fave.
"I’ve had my share of ups and downs, times when there was no one around,
God came and spoke these words to me, praise will confuse the enemy.
I started singing, I started clapping, I started dancing, people were laughing, they knew my problems, they knew my pain, but I knew God would take them away.
That’s why I praise him with my hands, that’s why I praise him with a dance, He’s given me a second chance, come on lets praise him in advance"
Okay, here's my 7 folks
