Things I wonder about…

Filed under: Uncategorized — exclusivelyexclusive2 @ 2:00 am

…was Tupac really that great of an artist? I mean, it wasn’t until he died that everyone was like “Tupac is a ghetto poet, etc., etc.” Is it just a case of someone dying young and then becoming an idol? I really don’t know, as I only know what was played on the radio.

…What happened to A.D.O.R.? Their song “Let it all hang out” was one of my favorites. And then I never heard anything again.

…What happened to George Michael? My sister and I learned how to use the Fisher Price record player thanks to Wham’s “Everything She Wants” single, Culture Club’s first album and the Rain Man soundtrack (Iko Iko and At Last by Etta James). Then Georgey released Faith and we played it to DEATH. We even played his boy Deon Estus’ album to DEATH (Heaven Help ME). Then Georgey went and started doing drugs and getting arrested in public bathrooms. What a waste of a brilliant musician with one of the most beautiful voices on earth. Prayer for the Dying was so beautiful, not to mention Kissing a Fool.

…Where is Edie Brickell and why doesn’t she get the credit she deserves? Most people nowadays know her (If they know her by name) as the girl going “What I am is what I am” in Slow Down by Brand Nubian. She is the truth and should be treated as such.

…why can I no longer identify a Thelonius Monk or Art Blakey song by ear? Apaprently, when I was little I’d wake up in the morning and say, “Daddy, play Monk for me.” But I can’t even remember that now.

…what will 50 do when Kanye beats him on 9/11? And how will I celebrate?

  4. I’m not aware of too many things, I know what I know if you know what I mean….Philosophy is the talk on a cereal box, religion…Choke me in the shallow waters before I get too weak.” Yeah, she is gifted, but maybe she’s hiding in the shadow of her husband Paul Simon?

    Also, yes, yes, and yes! George Michael is a hot mess! I love him and I hope that he recovers because he is so talented. Have you ever heard his rendition of “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me”? Have you ever heard “Kissing A Fool.” His UK released version of “As” with Mary J Blige? The man is talented. Let us pray.
