Here's my playlist-Much Love
1. The Roots: 'The Fire' ft John Legend
I'm a huge John Legend Fan. Black Thought is one of the best mc's and rappers of all time. Dig it.
2. Steel Train: 'Bullet'
This song is the definition of romance. His voice is the perfect blend of vulnerable and tough. Girls want him, guys want to be him. Love this.
3. Erykah Badu: 'Umm Hmm'
All around beautiful. Feel good jam. This chorus will make you dance, even if you hate dancing
4. Adele: 'Rolling In The Deep' LIVE
Amazing Voice. Amazing Album. Amazing Song. Do yourself a favor and dig on this please-
5. BlakRoc: 'Ain't Nothing Like You' Ft. Mos Def and Jim Jones
Project that consists mainly of The Black Keys and Mos Def. Awesome stuff if your with the funky-hip-hop-brotha-rock. Great album only available through independent music stores. Not a big Jim Jones fan but he kills the verses. Get Up with it
6. Outkast: 'Mutron Angel' Ft. Whild Peach
This is an intense song. It's off the 'idlewild' album. Whild Peach has such soul and pain in her voice. Such a cool concept for a song using mainly percussion, organ and vocals. eerily beautiful and definitely powerful
7. Esperanza Spalding: 'Precious' LIVE
Such a sexy song. I absolutely hate myself for JUST finding out about her. She's amazing. We need more female musicians like this in the pop world. The perfect blend of jazz/pop/R&B in my opinion.Dig it.
8. Bruce Springsteen: 'Born To Run'
Classic. Fun Facts : The Boss wrote the saxophone lead - My mom used to hold her 80's boombox up to her stomach while pregnant with me and would regularly play Bruce Springsteen, I love my mom
9. Mos Def: 'Roses' Ft Georgia Anne Muldrow
Such a great love/heartache song. Mos def is such an amazing mc but this shows off his songwriting skills on a different level. Rap can be beautiful, if you don't know now you know
10. Billy Joel: 'New York State Of Mind'
Ignore the fact that I'm from New York, Live On Long Island and happen to play piano...this song is simply one of the best songs ever written. This is an amazing version he did live in 1978. Tooooooo good
11. Corinne Bailey Rae: 'Are You Here' LIVE
I have a mega-huge-enormo crush on corinne bailey rae and the rest of you should to. I've been listening to this album for a year, constantly, it's amazing. Her husband passed away and this song is about him-Pretty heartbreaking but such a great song <3
12. Anthony Hamilton: 'Do you feel me' from the American Gangster Soundtrack
Anthony Hamilton has such a soulful voice. This is baby makin' music. Our generations Al Green. He makes singing low cool again. Buy his albums. Much Love
