Finally a soul cat. I actually love tons of male crooners, but this one is on my mind today…I just peeped the new video for Dreamworld and swooned. Reminded myself of the love of all things Thicke (pause). So I decided to write about some of my favoritest Robin Thicke love songs. I can’t take credit for knowing about him when he went by just the last name–I got put on to his debut later…but I like most people first heard of him with that summer smash Wanna Love You Girl. I’ll tell the honest truth. the video came on VHI Soul and I heard it/not looking at the tv cuz I was on the computer and thought it was JT. I know, I know. but when he hits that part “ooooh I’m sooo glad, I found you”. He DID sound like JT. what a faux pas, especially since Robin is soooooo much more dope than Justin. Yeah, he is. and I happen to kinda have a soft spot for Justin too. sometimes. so back to this song…. it was catchy and infectious and I loved it immediately…..I made it a personal theme song of sorts… one day I’m going to blog about my personal theme songs. I’ve had so many over the years.
But back to Robin. some of my favorite jams by my dude….
off top my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE THICKE song is “U Center Me“. This is like the best love song. I’d want someone to tell me that, that I center them. seriously. it just sounds right.
another favorite is Against the World. back in 06 I think it was I found these two songs on a prerelease of The Evolution and WORE THEM OUT. these are my two favorite songs by him ever.
another is a predictable one, I won’t even link it cuz it got played out and I honestly don’t even want to hear it right now. Its Lost Without You. okay, I know it was played ad nauseum, but its a good song.
some others I just absolutely love:
Teach U A Lesson -ohhh Lawd!
you’ve been a bad girl
Someones gonna have 2 straighten u right out
you’ve been a bad girl
Someones gonna have 2 teach u
Teach u teach u teach u
U can call me professor
But baby u broke the rules
U wont get the grade u want
Unless u stay after school
U can work it off
Baby I can give u extra credit
But theres something else
U were late 2 school
(Teach u teach u teach u)
Girl can I frisk u
Search your body 4
You look so guilty 2 me
If I make u nervous
Its cause you’re hiding WMDs…..
Would that make me u love -another live performance. I think if I saw him live I’d throw my panties at the stage, lol!
Ms. Harmony–the music is just soooooo smooth. He does channel his best Marvin Gaye rendition, but I do like that about him….since writing this post I have listened to this song 3 times in a row. eh. one mo gin for the hell of it…
and another favorite on the new CD Dreamworld. peep the video below.
and some throwback Thicke just for the hell of it..peep the Andre Harrell cameo. If you didn’t know, my boy wrote for tons of people over the years some I know of off the top are Usher and Brandy…..
