The Soundtrack of My Life

the music that keeps me going…

They say that chivalry is dead…

Then why is her body in my bed
At sunrise, the morning paper’s read
They found a body in my bed

ok the drums? the synthesizer? love. this song is erotic. yes. I haven’t participated in #freakyfriday in awhile so I decided to bring it back. With a banger from the latest release from Cee-Lo Green’s The Lady Killer. Highly anticipated, full of funk and old school flavor–this groove reminds me of something Barry White would sing on. Now Cee-Lo doesn’t give me “sexy time” vibes at all, but this here song? this song right here? whooooooweee. Shout out to my sis Mel that put me on to this one.

…I leaned towards her and whispered the choice is yours
Need I remind you that I’ll have no remorse
(I understand)
Here’s a kiss sweetheart this won’t hurt a bit
I can kill it with kindness or murder it

uhm. murder it please! lolololol #imfast #iknowit #sowhat

in other news, I recently read that Goodie Mob is coming with a reunion album. I hope its good, can’t wait to check it out. And how about I didn’t know Cee-Lo was only 36?! I guess I feel like since I’ve been listening to his music forever he should be a lot more older than me. I dunno. Between the Mob, Gnarls Barkley, and the solo projects he has a pretty diverse catalog! If you haven’t checked The Lady Killer out yet, please do so! Good music.  Happy Friday folks. 🙂


oooh that’s my song!

now that’s usually what I say, aloud or in my mind when I hear “the jam”. The jam is the song that for whatever reason is the one that makes you get up off your butt acting saditty poo and go on to the dance floor and do your thing. its usually the song that makes you do a bit more than the 2 step special, this one makes you really cut a rug, sing at the top of your lungs and some whatever else is your steelo.

but this post isn’t about those songs necessarily. This post is about THEME SONGS. Every woman has a song that is her ANTHEM; now I’m not talking Irreplaceable or Singles Ladies, but I mean an anthem that when you hear it you think its played

This Yo Gotti character got girls thinking they are 5 Star Chicks and, while I think the concept is hood, that’s a good example.  One of my faves used to be “Bad Bitch” by Webbie. #dontjudgeme. I have my hood moments!! lmao

But seriously here is my list, finally. REECIE’S THEME SONGS:

“That girl thinks that she’s so fine
That soon she’ll have my mind
That girl thinks that she’s so smart
That soon she’ll have my heart…

That girl thinks that she’s so bad
She’ll change my tears from joy to sad
She says she keeps the upper hand
‘Cause she can please her man
She doesn’t use her love to make him weak
She uses love to keep him strong
And inside me there’s no room for doubt
That it won’t be too long”-
That Girl, Stevie Wonder. My #1 theme song…

There She Goes– Babyface: could just be the Neptunes beat, but when I heard this song I immediately put it on “the list”

Bad Girl-Usher: those that know me already knew this one. this is also one of my in the club “oooooooh shit!” songs. gotta get up and do my thing. Sing with me: “whatchall know about a, supermodel”

Bossy-Kelis: *hangs head* I know its cliche, but this really was my song!

Being a Girl-Van Hunt: “Every once-in-awhile you meet a chile, that drives you wild, with unmistakable, downtown style…she just can’t help being a girl, she just can’t help-her-self, full of spectacle and charm like nothing else. Being a girl…”

Booty -Erykah Badu: “your booty might be bigga, but I can still pull your nigga but I don’t want him…” this damn song! Badu made this one before she got thick wit it. lol

Queen Bitch-Lil Kim: I told y’all I have my moments. this song was IT in high school. of course I still know all the words.

Flashing Lights-Kanye West: I’m not really sure why, but it is. lol

Sexy Lady-UCB: ok my DMV folks and go go heads know this…“sexy lady, give me your number giirrrrlllll, sexy lady, I wanna rock your world”. ok. you can’t tell me he isn’t singing to me when this comes on. ” damn girl you sexy as you wanna be, that mean walk…”

The One -Cee Lo ft. TI & Jazze Pha: I have blogged about this song a couple times, but its seriously my MF’in jam. like I love this song so much I can’t even explain it.  First time I heard this I was in the club in St, Louis and everyone was putting their “ones” in the air and I was like, well alright! lol. had to come home and download it. I’ll just post my favorite lyrics because they just rock. lol

It’s our privilege, to have had this conversation
It’s our privilege, and to have had this relation
It’s our privilege, I been searching all evening
For somebody who can and finally sent me the one
It’s our privilege, to have made you laugh
It’s our privilege, and to have crossed your path
It’s our privilege, you’re the star yes you are
Can have your autograph cuz you lookin like THE ONE
It’s our privilege, to have seen your face
It’s our privilege, and I bet you taste so good, let’s get one thing understood
I’ll be good yes I would, especially for the one

^^ no, Cee-lo isnt’ fine but he’s singing that part to me. I promise. I imagine it as him singing on behalf of TI though. ;-p

Others mentioned on other blog posts have been Wanna Love you Girl, Prototype, She Got Her Own, Sometimes,  Muah, PYT, Be Happy…I mean, you know a good song when you hear it, right? I don’t really have or need a lot of people gas me up in life–because I gas myself. no harm in that is it? nope. *pats self on the back and keeps dancing*

“she’s the kinda girl you wanna marry, the kinda you  walk the whole earth for, put her on your back and just carry, her attitude is hotter than the earth’s core…”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Do men have theme songs?! just curious…


Peek a boo

Me and my family moved in our apartment complex
A gate with the serial code was put up next
The claim that this community is so drug free
But it dont look that way to me cause I can see
The young bloods hanging out at the sto 24/7
Junkies looking got a hit of the blo its powerful
Oh you know what else they tryin to do
Make a curfew especially for me and you the traces of the new world order
Time is getting shorter if we dont get prepared
People its gone be a slaughter
My mind wont allow me to not be curious
My folk dont understand so they dont take it serious
But every now and then, I wonder
If the gate was put up to keep crime out or to keep our ass in

Whos that peeking in my window
Pow nobody now!

I remember the first time I heard this song I was immediately taken in by the beat. just…ill. I liked the goodie mob immediately. Of course back in the mid 90s I was a Outkast fan, so naturally I was down with the rest of the Dungeon Family.  My favorites were Khujo and Cee Lo. I liked Gipp and of course thought T-Mo was cute. I liked his verse best in Soul Food.

For years folks been wondering about a Goodie Mob reunion, which I heard is pretty much never gonna happen. I have enjoyed Cee-Lo’s solo music and even dig Gnarles Barkley…but its something about Goodie Mob that I will always miss. I wish they would reunite. Cee Lo likes to sing and whatnot now, but dude was nice lyrically.

check some of my other favorites by Goodie Mob, Dungeon Family and my certified Cee Lo banger:

what happened to Cool Breeze?! this song was my jam!!! man that beat!!!! whoowee! *sigh this got me missing me some Big Boi toooooooo! T-Mo went hard on this one too….

“all they do is dis….all they do is dis…”

I didn’t even know it was a video to this! LMAO!

now the very last….this is MY.MUTHAEFFIN.SONG.

this is still one of my theme songs…..*puts my finger in the air*
