80's baby but 90's raised me.
I was talking to my bff about what happend to good music and how i wish i was a teenager in the late 70's early 80's. I just feel like that was one of the best era's of music. Hell even the early 90's. Music these days is so fuckin stupid. Plies-- he gets on my nerves, Ne-yo love his songs but hate the fact he thinks he can dance when he cant, and i cant stand looking at them ugly lips, Rappers- everyone is on the damn vocoder /auto tune shit.(your not zapp and roger!) sooo annoying too! i cant listen to ron brows entire pop champagne song without wanting to insert my finger down my throat. It just seems like anyone can get a record deal. [shameful]
Well luckily i was blessed with parents who love music and always had artist like: Luther, Stevie, Bob Marley, Roger and Zapp, The Isley Brothers, The O'Jays, The SOS band, LL Cool J, Anita Baker etc. blasting from our Cadalliac, record player, 8 track and cassette player. I've grown to believe im a music head. I love it. So here are some of my favorite songs. Believe it or not they are still in rotation for me.
De La Soul - me, myself and I
Digable Planets - Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)
Bob Marley - redemption song

"I grew up on video soul, Donnie Simpson and Rachael.
Making up dances to songs by girl groups,
screwballs and ice cream cones
ring pops & candy necklaces,
white girls & jelly bean sandals
koolaid smiles and side ponytails.
super nintendo blowing on the catridges
riding my bike all day and playing kickball in the street.
