MUSIC IS MY DRUG…
So, have you every wondered what kind of music people listen to? In their cars, on their phone, iPods, iPads, Laptops, WHEREVER? Not only with my love for people watching, I love to know what kind of music people listen to…. Yes, maybe I’m nosey like that, but to me I love to be introduced to new music, new artists, and the easiest and quickest way to do that is to listen to what people are listening to! Yay or nay?
Now, I must add this. My sister is GREAT at finding new music, and we have similar tastes and style in music. Even though we differ from time to time, she introduces me to lots of new music.
MY MUSIC STYLE…
(As much as I hate saying this, I will say it anyway). I listen to everything! I don’t close my ear off to anything, but of course, I’m in not keen, I wont listen to it again.
- I love oldies– Regina Bella, Anita Baker, George Benson, Dobie Gray, Donne Hathaway, Teddy Pendergrass. (All the oldies our folks listened to! I’m there man1 lol).
- Jazz– Miles Davis, Nina Simone, Louis Armstrong, Winton Marsalis, Roy Aryers.
- Global Artists– Yanni, Claude Challe, Cesario Evora, A. R. Rahman, Seif Keita, Oliver Mtukudzi, Sara Tavarez and lots more…!
Of course there is a lot more, and of course with the constant evolution in music, there is a lot of changes in my music playlist from time to time, dependent on my mood!
WHAT’S ON MY PHONE MUSIC PLAYLIST??
I thought I would take screen shots of some of my most listened to artists and songs on my phone that the most. I’m a creature of habit, so once I love a song, I will listen to it, or the album over and over again for as long as I want to be fore moving on to the next thing!
WHAT I’M LISTENING TO DEPENDS ON MY MOOD:
MOOD: WHEN I WANT TO GET PUMPED FOR THE DAY
Beyonce. In truth I’ve never been a Beyonce die hard fan, but I respect her craft and appreciate her talent, however THIS ALBUM HERE!!!! Lemonade is truly a masterpiece! It does it for me when I want to listen to great music I can sing along to get ready for the day! YAAAASSSS!
Another artist I LOVE at the moment is South African born and bred Hip Hop artist (yes, I listen to hip hop), Kwesta. This album i normally play on a friday morning and afternoon, including saturday when I just want to pump up! I love especially track 5- K1 God and 9- “Tshek”. ❤ South African Hip Hop is legit on fire at the moment and I’m not complaining!
MOOD: WHEN I’M RELAXED TAKING LONG SUNDAY DRIVES
Shlomho!!! Arrrgggg goodness!! This is not music you sing along to, lol, no no no honey. This is music you listen to! You shut up, and you play it loud and let the vibrations hit and and travel right through your body. This is the sunday drive music that gets me QUIET. If you haven’t heard of Shlomho, stop reading this post and google him, do it! Now! lol
MOOD: WHEN I AM CHILLING AT HOME ON A SUNDAY DOING THE USUAL ROUTINES
My sister introduced me to The Hics, and every since, I haven’t looked back… if you want chill lounge music, THIS is what you go for! I especially love Russian Dolls and Tangle ❤
Oh and not forgetting… SG Lewis- perfect for a chilled sunday vibe with music playing through your home and you’ve got people over for lunch and drinks, you get SG Lewis. “no Less” and “Warm” are SUPER songs!
MOOD: WHEN I FEEL LIKE JAMMING/ BOBBING MY HEAD
D’Angelo and The Vanguard! ❤ Check out “Really Love” awwwww!!!
MOOD: WHEN I’M FEELING EMOTIONAL/SAD/CHEST PAINING/WHEN I WANT TO BE IN MY FEELINGS, LOL
Anyone who knows James Blake, knows how emotional his music can make you feel! You would swear the concept of heartbreak was CREATED by him!!! LOL, it’s true!! I have all his EP’s and lately I’ve been going MAD over his latest masterpiece “The Colour In Anything” ❤ ❤ ❤ Take a special listen to “Radio Silence”, “Points”, “Love Me In Whatever Way”, “I Need A Forest Fire”….. Hell, THE WHOLE ALBUM!!! lol
Highly recommend him!
That is what I’m currently listening to! It may change tomorrow, next week or next year, but that’s what I’m loving lately.
What jams have got you going crazy lately and would you like to see a post like this from me more often? Let me know!
Until the next one,
Live in Light and Love ❤
