friday melodies xviii

Music has gotten me through this week. It’s been a little stressful (ok, very
stressful), and I’m sure I could talk about work forever, but I think I’d rather
just listen to music. Let’s end it on a high note, shall we? There’s hip hop,
there’s mellow music…in fact, there’s a little house here too.

Mixing it up

Two tracks (2 and 7) are from Rafael Saadiq’s Ray
album, but the one that is most special to me is the track Rifle
, with Tony Toni Tone and Lucy Pearl accompanying him. Tracks 1 and
8 are from Jon B’s new album, Stronger
. Notice the vocal stylings (!) of Dirt McGirt in Everytime.

Track 10 is from Lyfe Jenning’s Lyfe
album. Cheryl Lynn’s Sweet Kind of Life is a nice track
off of the Shark
soundtrack. Be Yourself by Joi Cardwell
is from the awesome house CD Blaze
Presents Artists United for Life

Nod your head. It’s a little bit of everything. Enjoy.

  1. Friday Melodies: Spooky Music

    This year Halloween fell on a weekend… – Bushwick Bill, Mind Playing Tricks On Me I’m taking a cue from Buzz this year. I can’t stand Halloween. Don’t bother leaving any candy for my kids. They won’t be trick or…

    ‘Be Yourself’ is just what I needed today. That melody makes me want to take a vaction to somewhere tropical!

  3. EJ that JOI CALDWELL joint was nice! And those Jon B. songs were cool too, I havent really been keepin up with him. “Lately” was real nice. The Jon Ledgend wont bad either. The Cheryl Lynn cut was a nice surprise too! You know I’m an Ol’ Skool fool!
