|Don't worry John. We'll wait.|
So I'm multi-tasking like the beast I am working & chit chatting with the work hubby & he asks me the most insane, brain hurting, ridiculous, time consuming, question OF ALL TIME.
"So what's your top 5 favorite songs?"
Da hell? I'm about 20 minutes before pre-quit (that's pretty much when I stop working & start jiggling my car keys with my purse on my shoulder) and he pops this question!!! I think I threw my pen across my office trying to come up with something. I've been avoiding my Music Monday posts because quite frankly I'm less than inspired by anything going on right now but this question. C'mon!!!! Who asks a music buff something like this? Why not just ask who my favorite kid is?
*Deep Heavy Sigh* So he starts spitting out of few of his favs and I use the time to not really listen but scribble some songs. Uggghhhhhhh!
Okay, I begin. Top 5 favorite songs. I can do this. Okay...Michael Jackson "Lady In My Life", "I Can't Help It", & "Human Nature". Damn that's 3 right there. Luther Vandross's"Anyone Who Has A Heart" drips with all kinds of yearning. My lawd. Prince "Sign O The Times", "Adore", Beautiful Ones".
Just 5...da hell?
Seal "Kiss From A Rose". Zhane "Crush". Alicia Keys "The Life". Aww lawd and we haven't even scratched the surfaces of Mary J Blige's "Reminisce", "Beautiful", "All That I Can Say", "Be Happy". C'MON!!! JUST 5!!!!
Oh wait there's Sade, "Love Is Stronger Than Pride" & "Cherish The Day". Oh & Musiq Soulchild "MomentInLife", "BestFriend" & "LoveOfMyLife"
Did I hit 5 yet?
And I haven't even mentioned the battle of whether I love Eric Clapton's "Layla" original or extra unplugged. That debate goes hard in my house. The hubby & Fidge prefer the unplugged version while I rock out to the original.
In fact once I got home last night this bleep bleeping question created a Dood & Mommy mini home concert and costs me another $10 on iTunes. Yes, I don't mind paying for music I love.
I haven't even mentioned anything about Jay-Z because that's just 20 more songs or Portishead's "All Mine" and "Only You". Nor have I mentioned "Sherly Crow's "Safe and Sound" or Alanis Morissette's "Uninvited" and "Ironic" or the entire Fiona Apple Tidal or Zero 7's "Destiny" & "Waiting In Lines". And please don't get me started on the entire Marvin Gaye's I Want You.
I just can't with this question. I'm sure John Cusack would have a definite answer but me...not so much. I mean really how do you answer this? Yes, you. You answer it! What's your top 5 favorite songs? Let's see if you can do it.
Oh & does anyone know a good divorce attorney? I'm done with the work hubby. First he brings me chocolate peanut butter cake because he fell off the wagon & now this bull.
