It has become clear that I have to spend some time this weekend putting more music on my ipod. I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever actually heard this much rap before. I like rap but itâ€™s not a genre that I hear much. I think itâ€™s going to take me some more time to be able to distinguish between the songs and artists but, to be honest, I had the same problem listening to the most popular alternative rock bands.
1. Donâ€™t Let Me Down â€“ 311. More hard core rock/rap than what Iâ€™ve heard from them â€“ which, admittedly, isnâ€™t much. I have to say that Iâ€™m not really that impressed.
2. No Static At All â€“ 3rd Bass. The song starts off with a sample of Steely Danâ€™s song of the same name. Iâ€™m finding that I just donâ€™t feel like concentrating on the lyrics. Thereâ€™s just too many of them. I caught a few lines about getting a new haircut but Iâ€™ve already forgotten everything else about the song. I am, however, still having Vanilla Ice flashbacks.
3. Youâ€™re a Big Girl Now â€“ The Stylistics. This is one of my very favorite songs. For some reason, this is a good memory from my childhood. I donâ€™t remember why, but I feel good when I hear it. I try not to remember a lot from my younger years. Iâ€™m definitely not one of those people who wish I was a kid again.
4. Black Superman â€“ Above the Law. The basic premise of this little ditty is killing people and selling drugs so his mom doesnâ€™t have to be on public assistance anymore and can move out of the hood. In his mamaâ€™s eyes, heâ€™s the Black Superman.
5. Ezekiel 25-17 â€“ Samuel L. Jackson. A nice way to finish up the list. Dialogue from Pulp Fiction. This is the bad-ass biblical quote Sam recites before blowing some folks full of holes. Now Iâ€™ve got several quotes from the movie running through my head. What a great movie.
