The Soundtrack of My Life

the music that keeps me going…

I’m not quite sure as to what is going down…

but I’m feeling honky dory about this thing that I found…

You can tell all videos during the early 90s had that same “look” about them. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was filmed in that same alley way as MJB’s “Real Love.” They both were Uptown/MCA artists.

This is hands down my favorite Heavy D song… how can you not want to dance when you hear this?!?!

Do you remember when MTV was actually a music channel? And it was a cornerstone of your youth (depending on your age) and your musical exposure? Well, they used to have this CD series called Party to Go. The club version of this song was on Volume 2.

As I mentioned in previous posts, I was a member of Columbia House and BMG in high school so I had/have CDs for days. I dont know why I even remember this, as I haven’t seen this CD in years. but I do know that this song has always stuck with me (yes it is on my iPod as several other Heavy D songs).

I will never forget his music as a part of my youth and more than anything it was clean so your parents liked it too, and made you want to dance. Just feel good vibes.

I also have this joint on my computer:

Click the cover and thank me later.  Below is another favorite by Heavy D & The Boyz thats featured on this album.

And just because, another featuring a group I ADORED back in the day, some of Heavy’s protege’s. Soul For Real. this was a party jam as well!

and another 90s jam featuring the Overweight Lova

RIP Heavy D.

I miss you…

its been too long

since you’ve been gone

feels good when I’m with you

I miss you

I need your smile

ain’t seen you in awhile

I’m so alone I miss you….

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What happened to Monifah? that used to be the jam. Was she a Heavy D protege’? I heard Now That We Found Love yesterday on the radio on the old school lunch mix and was jamming tooo hard in my car! that’s my fave Heavy D song. that and black coffee no sugar no cream! I miss Heavy. I miss Monifah. I got to thinking today at work about artists that I miss…just random, like where is SHE at? (behind that preposition, I know). Who remembers the Monifah remix with AZ? *sigh* music was soooo much better then.

Here’s my list:

Vivian Green–I’on even know where my girl’s been hiding, but I wish we could go back…or come back rather.  just do something!!!

Monica- I know she’s been seen everywhere, and has a duet with Keyshia Cole, where she clearly outshines her in the song and the video, but I want some solo material…

Amy Winehouse–just get your life together and make some music, I mean damn. I’m tired of seeing pictures of you looking crazy in these streets! I mean, what kind of fuckery is this?! do better, ma!

Amerie–Because I love it. that’s all, no other explanation needed. I think I love Amerie as much as I love Teedra.

Faith Evans–I read her book earlier this year and just miss everything about her….I think this was the last Faith song I really really loved..

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Corinne Bailey Rae-I know her voice annoys a lot of people, but I really like it and I liked her first CD.

Eve–I mean do I even have to go into it? I just saw this horrible new Lil Kim video yesterday (hadn’t heard the song before seeing the vid) and I just want a female rapper to do better. NO, I want specifically Eve to do it.  I’m over Kim….

Kelis–I mean she’s with child and going thru a divorce so maybe I’ll have to wait a little bit longer….just as long as she gets back with Neptunes….if not she can keep it.

Tamia–Its only been what 3 years since Between Friends but it was great. I loved it, I want you to come out and get your due!!!! Last First Kiss is like oh-em-gee, its a fantabulous song!!!

Jazmin Sullivan–I know the CD just came out but can I get a video…that doesn’t suck? I don’t miss you  quite yet, but I feel like you kinda are fading to black. I’on know. Just a feeling I get…

Beyonce–because you know I haven’t seen you in so long. didn’t you get married a year ago? where have you been my dear? *rolls eyes* I would love for you to go on tour or something soon to give us a sneak peek of what’s coming next…..a movie maybe….

there are tons of other women making great music that you just don’t see anymore…I think the universe has an unwritten rule that you have to rotate about 4 or 5 mainstream singers at a time…..as long as Beyonce always remains a constant–she’s like the big joker in your spades hand. you know you set if you have her right? I kid…. throw MJB  in the mix every 3 years or so, someone like Ciara or Rihanna to be edgy but still compared to Beyonce…you know to just keep hoes in their place,  and then Keyshia fills the hood quotient.

Do we have any female versions of cornballs like Pleasure P and Bobby V? hmmmm. Christina Milian is trying to make a comeback but I just don’t see it. Dip it Low is her only hit. Go back to making movies boo! and that blond hair? “you look bad gurl”. She used to be my body role model….her cute shape is soooo being ignored by the hideous clothes and horrible hair.

I don’t want to post the awful picture on my blog, but I’m speaking of this here.

Can some of my favorite singers come back? please….I don’t ask for much these days…and I don’t bitch and whine if I don’t get my way…..

I just want something fresh, from the people I like. thats all. I mean I can spend days listening to old Monica Faith Evans (as they have the largest catalogs), but I’d rather discover something new, ya know?

yes, she wants neo soul, this hip hop is old, she don’t want no rock and roll…..
