In Rotation: When You Hear The Birthday Song

I’m typing this here live from Philly, where I’ll be this weekend to continue
the celebration to a (somewhat nondescript) birthday week. What makes this easier
and is making me excited, however, is the fact that Todd Kelley has put his goodness
into the music. So while I’m looking forward of hitting the Electric
Factory
to see John Legend/De La Soul/Rahzel/DJ JS-1 (and yes, I will have
camera), we can all bob our heads to this:

Todd
Kelley: When You Hear The Birthday Song
.

Big shoutouts go to Honey,
Obi, KB,
Luke Cage,
and the one, the ONLY, Todd Kelley
for this mix. This made my whole week worthwhile.

From here,
he drops it to you:

01 – Intro / The Birthday Song
02 – Shout Out: Obi from South London
03 – Breathe In – Ivana Santilli
04 – That’s How I Know – D’Nell
05 – Take Your Time – Pete Rock f/ Loose Ends
06 – Station Drop 1
07 – Stand Alone – Sy Smith
08 – Shout Out: Honey
09 – Spread My Wings (Remix) – Troop
10 – If You Were Here Tonight – Alexander O’Neal
11 – Station Drop 2
12 – In Time – Jazzy Jeff f/ V
13 – Been Gone – Symbolyc One & ILLmind f/ Strange Fruit Project
14 – My Place – Jaguar Wright
15 – Station Drop 3
16 – 2nd Childhood (Cookin’ Soul Remix) – Nas
17 – Affection – Tamara & The Seen
18 – Butterfly – Jamiroquai
19 – That Easy – Clara Hill

That’s all I’m gonna say about it. Man, I’m getting all misty eyed….
Have a good weekend! I see you, Philly!

  1. Breathe In – Ivana Santilli THAT’S MY JOINT!!!! Some one please give me a Hieneken and a lounge chair. Love that damn song.

  2. Enjoy your extended birthday celebrations.
    #9 brought back good memories of the days when I loved me some Troop.
    #10 was a great way to mellow back out from my Troop hype-ness.
    Have a great weekend in Philly!

  3. Oh shit. Happy Belated birthday! I’m missing everyone’s birthday these days. I guess that’s what happens when I go on vacation… 😛
