I've been in a extra lovely mood lately. Maybe because I'm still coming off my Pookem Puff high (my nephew stayed with us over the weekend for the first time..him so cute) or I'm trying to balance the Universe. Who knows...
Anyway. So I'm driving to work & two of my current little diddies come on. The 1st Fantasia's "Bittersweet". That girl put all of her country home wrecking self into that song. The 2nd is Jazmine Sullivan's "Circles". I like this song mostly because the first verse recycles the melody of Mary J Blige's "Be Happy" that was sampled from Marvin Gaye's "I Want You" (see how Marvin moves everything around me?) but at face value the voices are strong & both are quite catchy. I give them 2 thumbs up.
So of course I sing along. Let me rephrase: I saaannngg in the car y'all. Windows down. I belted those joints. Like I was going through some thangs. Yup, like some no good lying cheating bastard done dougied on my heart. I had it bad for about 2 minutes 30 seconds during both songs.
But then the moon child in me gets all watery and needs to balance all of this "he did me wrong drama" with some love. Yes love. Heard of it? It's awesome. I highly recommend it. So I scan all 100+ XM channels woopin pa nub and guess what? Every chick was singing about how "he" (who is this he) done did her wrong. Every last one these chicks done been through some thangs too.
Weird huh? Because the population hasn't decreased and I ain't no Statistician but I'll go out on the limb & say that the rate at which babies are being born has a direct correlation to people still having lots of
So if people still like/love each other long enough to have relations thus causing the baby effect then gosh darn it cheese & crackers what are all these chicks singing about? Surely one these
I want this song to be a big breasted woman...wait...huh? I want this song to kiss babies and soar from the heavens wearing Beyonce's "Halo". It should be melodic and stop traffic. The lyrics should cascade like a unicorn's mane frolicking down a chocolate swirled double rainbow. Too much?
So I ask great people of the blogoshere. If God is willing and the creek don't rise can a sista get one happy love song? Just one?
