Pop the cork & steam the Vega & get lit, (what!)

Friday, September 14, 2007
First - This group is ridiculously underrated. I can not wait for their next CD.

Second - When I get overwhelmed at the office (or in life in general) I listen to this song. For some reason, it calms me. It takes me back to '97 - summer before high school - when I had no worries, no nothing. Sometimes I'd kill to go back to those days.

Question: What song makes you forget about all your worries for 3 or 4 minutes?

I was just telling a friend the other day, that it's kinda weird when you here a certain song and it can just flash a memory of something.

There are certain classic songs I can remember my parents listening to, and when I hear them, I can remember them being played when we had to get up on Saturday morning and clean the house. Those kind of memories do wonders for the soul. Especially when you can think about something positive, or what you were thinking about, wearing, and even certain smells that were going on when you heard such songs.

Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You" well, that and John Legend's "So High."

Bobby Womack's Harry Hippie just makes me pause for a few minutes. I love that song!

And Jeffrey Osbournes "We're Going All The Way" makes me do the same thing.

TDRT - you lost me on those.

I used to love Camp Lo. My cousin played them everyday while driving us to school and I grew to love that album.

Just about any music can take me "there"

Song that makes me forget about my worries for a few minutes...I have several depending on the moment...but a couple that come to mind:

Give It Up, Turn It Loose - En Vogue
Sex Cymbal - Sheila E (actually TDRT's latest entry on 09/19 made me think of her).

It's no fun if you don't say anything.
