friday melodies all around.

There’s things that have been going on inside my head, in the gym, and in my workplace that have made this a seriously long week, and I’m just glad to get through it all. I know everyone’s missed Old School Wednesday, and along that same token, even though I have lots of things around me, I’m lacking one small thing, and that’s time.
Not to say there isn’t a lot of good stuff out there, because there is. Let me shine some light onto three blogs specifically that have been lighting me up for the past couple of days.

  1. Todd Kelley’s Old School Wednesday was my personal highlight, and I forgot to mention it and give him his props. I grew up in the south and Zapp was played so frequently, I could pretty much sing all the songs from memory.
  2. Toshi’s Groovy Mix Volume 1. I would be lying if I said I had ever heard half of these songs. It’s eclectic, it’s danceable, and it’s great stuff.
  3. J. Brotherlove’s Deck The Halls With Drum n Bass. J introduced me to drum and bass a while back and while my favorite music these days is mellow, electronica grooves, there’s great stuff that I often miss when my mind is strictly in the old school vibe. I’ve got to say he’s taught me well.

There’s a lot of thoughts going on in my head, mostly my top 10 of the year, but it’s coming slowly but surely. It’s getting harder, however, considering there’s some really good stuff out now and I’m not sure how fair it would be to put something in that I just started listening to a week ago.
Enjoy, people, enjoy. There’s a little something for everyone.

  1. Thank you. I must say you took those musical “lessons” and ran with them while I’ve been chillin in the cut for most of 2004.

    Of course I missed your OSW. I did checked out Todd Kelley’s on Wednesday since I missed yours. I will be sure to check out Toshi’s and J’s melodies.
    You’ve mentioned your Top 10 of the Year, now you know I/we can’t wait for that post!
    Take care!

    I’ll check those out now. You certainly to seem like the type to win on “Name that Tune”, so I don’t think you’ll steer me wrong.
    Hey, I heard a cover of Alison Limmerick’s “Where Love Lives” that was gawd awful. How could someone even try to remake a classic? Ugh
