Well, Allow Me to Retort

It has become clear that I have to spend some time this weekend putting more music on my ipod. I don’t think I’ve ever actually heard this much rap before. I like rap but it’s not a genre that I hear much. I think it’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. Don’t Let Me Down – 311. More hard core rock/rap than what I’ve heard from them – which, admittedly, isn’t much. I have to say that I’m not really that impressed.

2. No Static At All – 3rd Bass. The song starts off with a sample of Steely Dan’s song of the same name. I’m finding that I just don’t feel like concentrating on the lyrics. There’s just too many of them. I caught a few lines about getting a new haircut but I’ve already forgotten everything else about the song. I am, however, still having Vanilla Ice flashbacks.

3. You’re a Big Girl Now – The Stylistics. This is one of my very favorite songs. For some reason, this is a good memory from my childhood. I don’t remember why, but I feel good when I hear it. I try not to remember a lot from my younger years. I’m definitely not one of those people who wish I was a kid again.

4. Black Superman – Above the Law. The basic premise of this little ditty is killing people and selling drugs so his mom doesn’t have to be on public assistance anymore and can move out of the hood. In his mama’s eyes, he’s the Black Superman.

5. Ezekiel 25-17 – 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 I’ve got several quotes from the movie running through my head. What a great movie.

Comment if you want. You know, no pressure.
