You know how each morning you'll be in the mood for a different type of music?…well that's how I am anyway. Some mornings I'm in the mood for 80s hits (music like "Don't You Forget About Me", "Danger Zone", and "Purple Rain"), other days Motown Classics, then it might be Theophilus London, etc etc…. well, today it's Mumford & Sons.
So, I was thinking about Valentine's Day, Fashion Week, and Black History Month all at the same time, (since they're all this month), when "My Girl" by The Temptations randomly started playing in the background (I had my ipod on shuffle)… and from that, this posting was born. The Temptations have some of the greatest love songs on earth and they sung them with so much style (and soul of course). So here's a mini-tribute to them (inspired by v-day, style, and history).
Ain't Too Proud To Beg
The Way You Do the Things You Do
Of course, I really wanted to post "My Girl", but re-posting was disabled for the video, so you can watch it here.

… it's just an undisputed fact of life. It doesn't get much better than Cee Lo Green. It was made official to me after I listened to "Cee-Lo Green… is The Soul Machine" years ago. And it has been further confirmed in the past few weeks of listening to his mixtape "Stray Bullets"…
Little Black Book, Talking to Strangers, Night Train, You Don't Shock Me Anymore, I Like It, The Secret. Sophistic@ted B!$ch, It it?, Super Woman Theme Song are my favorites (Yes, I named all but 4 songs on the album, two of which are intros and outros). The sounds of the mixtape literally take me through the past decades. He uses the best sounds of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s to create a moving thoughtful album, focusing on relationships of course.
I've finally downloaded "The Lady Killer", and, well, Cee Lo is pretty much it when it comes to an artist that gives us music in it's full on untainted essence– with real lyrics (not randomess, degrading mess, fakeness to build a certain persona, or cookie-cutter pop). His wittiness, untouchable flavor, and unique perspective on life, women, and relationships allows his music to cross every other genre barrier. You can't put Cee Lo in a box, he's just one of those artist that stands alone.
Now some people may not feeeeel the greatness of Cee Lo off the first listen, but give it a few spins then come back later and listen again, I'm sure your musical senses will have set it… and you'll be vibing to the great Cee Lo like the rest of us.
To get the full effect of Cee Lo. It's best to atleast download: Cee Lo Green… is The Soul Machine, Stray Bullets, and The Lady Killer. For bonus, I'd download a couple of Goodie Mob and Gnarles Barkley albums (his two groups). You can get all of it HERE. Download Stray Bullets torrent here.
This song just never gets old…
… even though I've heard it a million times.
The freshly-released, never before heard new single from Micheal Jackson, entitled "Breaking News" is now streaming on Michael Jackson's website. The song is from his album, MICHAEL, which will be released December 14th. Listen to the song here.
The Jackson family (his mom, sisters, even his children) does not believe it's really Michael. And to be honest, it does sound kind of funny… I think they may have done to this song what they did to some of Aaliyah's stuff after she past away. They mixed in her brother's voice to complete the movie Queen of the Damned (and a few of her other projects). I think they probably mixed in the voice of a Michael Jackson impersonator to finish the song. But who knows…
update: after to listening to it for a second time, this really does not sound like michael… i hope this is the only song on the album that sounds "fake".
