1 Jan 2014, 00:25 by Anna-waEven though I missed almost all the major Pop releases this year, it can't be denied that this year was still very much a music-centric year for me.
My friend LaKeina got me into the genres R&B and Rap music this year and I couldn't be happier. There are so many new artists/songs/album/etc. I've discovered and I'm so happy.
So this post is about my favorite R&B and Rap artists/songs/etc. that I've discovered this year, that didn't necessarily make new music this year (although some of them did). None of these are in any particular order.
1. Ginuwine (the only 1 in any order)
3. Amanda Perez
4. R. Kelly
9. Mary J. Blige
10. Yo Gotti
1. Kendrick Lamar - Don't Kill My Vibe
2. B.o.B - We Still In This (feat. T.I. & Juicy J)
3. T.I. - Memories Back Then (feat. B.o.B, Kendrick Lamar & Kris Stephens)
4. Meek Mill - Believe It (Feat. Rick Ross)
5. Ca$h Out - Cashin' Out
6. The Isley Brothers - Busted
19 Nov 2010, 15:42 by missygp29There's been a big hullabaloo about Robyn covering When Doves Cry by Prince. Which reminded me - although I shouldn't have needed it - what an extraordinarily brilliant record it is. Which prompted me to see what genius on my nano would do with it. The result: wonders. No, really, this playlist is the bomb (and yes, the early 2000s called and want their slang back).
So I had to share:
Starting tune: When Doves Cry
3. Sweet Thing
6. If Your Girl Only Knew
7. Ex Factor
8. The Payback
9. Inner City Blues
10. Deep Inside
11. Work It
12. Use Me
13. Summer Breeze
14. You and I
15. I Can Change
16. Wait A Minute
17. Real Love
18. Are You That Somebody?
19. Nothing Really Matters
20. One Minute Man
21. Mercy Mercy Me
22. Trick Me
23. I Was Made to Love Her
24. Hard To Handle
24 Sep 2009, 10:43 by CvaldaVessalisThe world of music has been dealt quite a few humdingers this past month, what with rappers humiliating teenage girls, founding members being kicked out of their very own pop institutions, the BBC attempting an X Factor style coup with a glamorous new judge (even giving her the same amazing hair) and Fearne Cotton personally making sure my weekday mornings are groan-inducingly horrible. You'd think I'd appreciate when people talk over the songs they play on the radio, especially the crap stuff, but the fact that Fearne waffles on about nothing and gives inane interviews (along the line of: "What's this?" "Oh, yeah, I loved that!" "I remember, it was great!" "AAAAALLLLLL WWWWIIIIILLLL SSSSSSSUFFFFFEERRRRRR!!!!") in such a grating manner with all of the self-importance of a stage school sixth former is enough to make me scream at the worst of times. Especially when she insists on playing Mika's latest single over and over and demands us to learn each time how much she loves it!
18 Aug 2009, 00:44 by techcentralFreaking Jeremy gave me a ticket for his singing competition. Everyone else bought theirs but he insisted that I come so I said thank you and took it.
I'm happy to support him but I wish he would let up. I've made it clear that I only ever want to be friends with him soon after we met. When I found out he'd been calling me and a good friend up. Pursued us at the same time.
But he's Sid's BFF since, well, forever and he's cool when he chills out. His self obsession is interesting though. The guy trumps me at self-obsession and that is just awful. Entertaining though.
Like when he got all butt-hurt when Christina wouldn't hug him because she was too tired after a concert. Or when she asked him to help set up tables for a picnic and he was like "Love to, but I'm busy eating my sandwich."
The show was pretty amazing though and Jeremy has a great voice and he seemed confident on the stage. All the singers stepped it up, had their costumes, props, even some skits. …
5 Mar 2009, 09:32 by eatingdynamiteAlmost two years to the day since my last journal entry on LastFM, I finally feel like blogging a little about music. I had better do this before I capitulate in uncontrolled compliance with the effects of sleep deprivation, because who knows when it's going to happen!
Wherein I profess my love for Oingo Boingo
I must give a massive shout-out to Oingo Boingo. I was born into their marvelous world, but for ten years now, they've made a steady and unrelenting climb toward the list of my Top Ten Bands of All Time. I do believe they've succeeded in their endeavor.
When I have no particular hankering for specific grooves or whatever, I instinctively reach for them. The music is familiar enough to be comfortable, cheeky and urbane enough to make me smile, and compelling and engaging enough to have massive replay value. I'm no superfan, though; haven't got the budget or the time to buy up all their releases. I only have Only A Lad and a handful of the compilations released during their stay at IRS Records -- you know…

10 MUSICAL DISCOVERIES
I bought PS3 and heard “The Seeker” while rocking in Guitar Hero III. I really should listen more to The Who. I love “My Generation”, “Pinball Wizard”, “Eminence Front” and this song, but I still can’t say I’ve heard a whole record of theirs.
I’m not sure why I started listening to this song, but I found it in 2008 and I can’t really get enough of it. Van Morrison is usually not one of my favorites, but I guess I love the simplicity of the song and the catchy refrain. And I must say: artists of today make way too few tribute songs like this one (the song is for Fats Domino).
One of my friends was humming on this one for a couple of weeks, but he didn’t know what it was or where he heard it. I knew the song, I definitely heard it before and it made me crazy when I couldn’t remember the name. …

13 Sep 2008, 19:36 by PeterRDaveyTwo People In The World (LP Version) As i listen to my go-go I reminisce.
Work Me Baby has the delta blues drone. Awesome syncopation guitar/voice notes. 'baby if you love me, ill love you too, we'll make everything alright". Its as simple as that. And nice guitar solo with the Rhythm tagging along. I love this style of playing. All my agony and frustrations are soothed to the soul with this melodious song.
It seems White Stripes have taken the simplicity of the blues but no where close to the soul I think. I take that back. But the roots are where its at!
Ask Her For Water This is what i like to call home school blues. or ease-z blues.
Tahitian Moon This catchy track uses the same distorted bass line and double fast distorted guitar line as All Around the World
We should address "Visual Pollution"
impair one's ability to enjoy a vista or view visual clutter@!

I like music. Good Music.
Pony = DL THE SCREWED AND CHOPPED VERSION!
Pony (Screwed and Chopped) the slowed down houston malasses-like feel of the south holds a grip on your body as the double click of the snare in repitition sets a chill up your spine. its so much more funkier sexier and badass than the plain original version. DL it here: Ginuwine- Pony (Screwed and Chopped)
Harlem World. - It is true there is no father to odb's style = Starting off in the begging of the song by playing guitar with his voice. You can hear the influence Rza and Gza play in his rap and vocabulary. He intellectually holds back words "as i detect what i wrote with my ...." they said rhyming on the mic is the number one ...." Gritty rhymes "cant smile teeth too gritty."
"go to school take a shit dont whipe your ass blame it on the other nigga in your class." brain insane claim fame gain came pain name. …
