by Zero 7: I was going to put off posting this like I do everyday. Hence, why there has not been a post in a week or so. When I decided to search for Zero 7’s album to download it, I realized I must simultaneously blog about this song. I hear this song quite often and every time I love it more than the previous time. At first, I kept forgetting the song and tagged it on Shazam everytime I heard it. Eventually, I realized this was the same song I heard the previous 4 times. The song is so calming and peaceful. It is guaranteed to make you relax, smile, and think about a loved one. It might even make you sing along:
When I’m weak, I draw strength from you and
When you’re lost, I know how to change your mood and
When I’m down, you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart, we are eachother’s destiny
Simple Things, the album in which Destiny is tracklisted, just completed it’s download. I plan on listening to the album as I pick up my workout regimen tomorrow. I will keep you informed of my top favorite tracks off Simple Things and others as I venture into the 3 additional albums by Zero 7.
by Eminem: Guess who’s back? That’s right. Slim Shady. Eminem. Marshall Mathers. Whichever name you choose, this man is back and in full force! Sorry this is just a clip, but this is what happens when you hear a track before it’s officially released! If this track is any indication of the other tracks off the same titled album, Relapse, it will be a hot one! This beat is sick and I like how he switches up the sound of his voice. Granted his lyrics are risky, but they have always been. You have to know to expect that from Slim. The rap game is REAL interesting these days…In 2008, we had albums from Lil Wayne, T.I., The Game, Nas, and Young Jeezy while albums from Kanye, Big Boi, and Dr. Dre will come before December 31st. When Em drops an album, the music game will be CrAzY!?! Only thing we will need is an album from Jay-Z to be the cherry on top.
For some random reason, I wanted to listen to The Eminem Show this morning. Yes, The Emimem Show by Marshall Mathers, better known as Emimen or Slim Shady. I know I’m not the only person who used to listen to Em, but for those of you who won’t even admit to being closet Eminem fans…it’s ok! Knowing that I haven’t listened to this album in 3+ years, I was surprised that I remembered lyrics to his tracks. The more I listened, I was quickly reminded of how much of an impact Slim had on music. Pushing every boundary possible, he continually expressed his feelings around problems in his life and the relationship between his wife and daughter. Being the researcher that I am, it was absolutely necessary for me to get an update on Eminem. There are reports that he will release another album this year. No leak on a title or an expected release date, but be on the lookout!
