Happy Tuesday, guys and dolls! As it usually goes, I would like to thank you guys for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere today to check out the tunes I've been listening to. Every now and again, which seems like more often than not, I have to share a few songs that take my mind back to beautiful memories of yesterday. Doesn't it feel good to hear an old song and get flashbacks of good times, great friends, and fun places? Tell me a couple of songs that give you those good vibes in the comments and be sure to check out the ones I've shared below.
Feel the Funk by Immature- This song brings back all kinds of memories! If you checked out my last installment of Tuesday's Tunes, you could probably tell from my membership in the B2K fan club that I was first a fan of Immature. I used to love these guys! And this is my favorite song by them. I remember the night my mom bought this tape for me from Walmart (probably tired of me trying unsuccessfully to dub it from the radio and felt sorry for me lol). I also remember the night my baby brother pulled all the tape from the plastic casing and ruined it! I believe I cried. This video introduced an all-grown up Immature-- complete with the relaxers and the bob-dos for Batman and Romeo. For some reason I thought this look was everything in elementary school. My, how trends change!
Never Forget You by Noisettes- Shinghai Shinowa is so beautiful in this video! It's been one of my favorites since I first heard it as I started off on a trip to DC back in 2010. I was so captivated by her unique sound that I googled nonstop until I found this group--The Noisettes. I eventually got the album and also fell in love with party song Don't Upset the Rhythm also. If you enjoyed this video, be sure to check out Wild Young Hearts, as I'm sure you will enjoy!
Everything by Fefe Dobson- Talk about memories! I think about freshman year at WSSU each time I hear this song. I played it in the mornings when I cleaned my dorm, in the evenings when I studied, and when I entertained my friends at night. And when I wasn't playing it on my laptop, MTV and VH1 were airing the video repeatedly. It was inevitable that I would soon become hooked to Fefe Dobson belting out lyrics with infectious vocals while strumming vicious chords on that guitar. And believe it or not, I never get tired of the song.
Girls Dem Sugar by Beenie Man- This song brings back thoughts of 2000, when I was young wild and free. I would dance in the mirror to this song and get all hype when it was played at the dances. Nonetheless, dancing in the mirror didn't help my chances of appearing to have any rhythm, lol. It didn't stop me from yelling out "that's my song" every time I heard Beenie Man and Mya's vocals lull over that fierce rhythm either!
Bonnie and Shyne by Shyne- If this song doesn't take you back, I don't know what song will today! Every time I reference myself as the girl with the "little bit of MAC lipglass, hair in a bun well done," I am paying homage to Shyne and this track, it seems. The beat is sickening, making me dance and wiggle my hips each time I hear it. The lyrics, however, always made me ponder what it really meant to be a ride or die girl. How many people will really be there with you through your worst and your best?
