Music Makes Me High

SInce I haven’t done a meme in close to three months, I figured I’d change the mood of this spot by doing one. I got this one from Organized Noise by way of Eb the Celeb (What up Mike! What up Eb!)

If you do it, drop a comment so I know to come past your spot to check it out. Thanks.

1. Song that makes you dance, no matter what:
“I Luv Your Girl’ by The Dream. I become the King of the Two-Step when this comes on, so much to the point where I busted out with the Two-Step while I was walking to catch the train at the College Park MARTA Station when someone drove by blaring this track. LOL

2. Song you’d use to tell someone you love them:
“Prototype” by Raheem DeVaughn. I like this version of Outkast’s track much better than the original. Check it out on Youtube when you get the chance.

3. Song that has made you sit down and analyze the lyrics:
“Gills & Tails” by Amel Larrieux. This is one of my favorite tracks from 2007. It talk’s about going after what you think you don’t have, then when you get it, you realize that you never needed it in the first place.

4. Song you like that a two-year old would like:
“A.B.C.” by The Jackson 5. Is it just me or did this song belong on School House Rock? It’s melodic plus it teaches you about numbers, letters and scales. Seems like a win-win to me.

5. Song that gives you an energy boost:
“What U Gon” Do” by Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH! This song is definitely on the ‘On My Way to Stomp Mudholes In Yo Azz’ soundtrack on my iPod.

6. A song you and your grandparents would like:
“Love TKO” by Teddy Pendergrass. There’s no reason why I should’ve known every word to this song at the age of 4. Thanks Teddy Pendergrass Stan Grandma. 🙂

7. Song you really liked when you were in high school that you still like now:
“Bennie & The Jets” by Elton John. A classic track right here. I used to listen to this on my iPod while riding the bus home from school.

8. A sad song that would be in the soundtrack of the movie about your life:
“Please Forgive Me” by David Gray. Another classic from Gray’s White Ladder Album.

9. Peppy song that would start the opening credits in the movie of your life:
“Who Am I” by Beenie Man. Wah Gwan? Me no know what ye speak on. Sim Simma…

10. A good song from a genre of music that no one would guess you liked:
“Barely Breathing” by Duncan Sheik. I actually got into Rock Music in a funny way. Back in the mid 90’s there were two “Urban” format stations in Baltimore (92Q and V103). After Frank Ski left V103 for the V103 down in Atlanta, the station’s ratings plummeted and they changed its format. Since I couldn’t get 92Q on the radio in my room, I was stuck listening to music I had never heard before. Now, you can’t tell me anything about my late 90’s Contemporary Post-Grunge Rock.

11. Song you think should have been playing when you were born:
“I Got It Made” by Special Ed.

12. Favorite duet artists:
Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. Hands down. Who can compare with them?

13. A favorite song you completely disagree with:
“I Got 5 On It” by Luniz. I don’t smoke (never have) but this is still one of my favorite tracks.

14. Song that you like despite the fact that your IQ level drops several points every time you listen to it:
“Marco Polo” by Bow Wow featuring Soulja Boy. It’s so bad, yet so damn catchy…

15. Smoothe song for relaxing:
“Slide” by Jeff Bradshaw featuring Jill Scott. A smooth track right here.

16. A song you would send to someone you can’t stand:
“Peace Sign/Index Down” by Gym Class Heroes. To all of the haters out there…’F you, this is for my people!’

17. Favorite political track (Or song with a message):’5 O’ Clock’ by Nonchalant. This a banger from ’95. ‘Five O Clock in da Mornin, Where ya gonna be? Outside on da corner!’

18. Favorite track from a band considered a “super group”:
“Papa Was A Rolling Stone” by The Temptations. Despite the fact that this track has a 32 minute intro before anyone starts singing, it’s still a banger and it’s still relevant in this day and age. ‘Ain’t nobody come to see you Otis!’

19. A song that makes you reminisce about good times with a family member:
“Theme from Shaft” by Issac Hayes. Reminds me of the time my friends and I were sitting in traffic on the Capital Beltway. As soon as this track came on, the Air Instruments came out and we were jamming like nobody’s business. We even got a couple laughs and ‘WTF?’ looks from people in the cars around us. RIP Issac Hayes.

20. Favorite song from a soundtrack:
“Theme from Shaft” by Issac Hayes. SHAFT! Damn right….

21. Your favorite song(s) RIGHT now:
I’m still bumping Dwele’s ‘Sketches of A Man’. So I’d say almost every track on that album.

  3. Good stuff. This was a fun meme. I’ve been listening to music all day because of it.

  4. Yeah, so I’m gonna have to do this one…especially since I decided to take on the daunting task of reorganizing my iTunes playlists this weekend…so I’ve been doing nothing but listening to music for the last 36 hours.

    I have to save that task (reorganizing my iTunes playlists) for a time when I know I won’t be doing anything for awhile. It usually takes me about a week to rearrange about 4,000 songs.

    I feel your pain LBoogie.
