Today’s #MusicMonday was all about Ryan Leslie. I guess he was top of mind after I watched his live streaming chat last Thursday. When I walked into the office this morning, he was the first and only music I wanted to listen to. Ryan’s self-titled album + Zer0 7’s Destiny was the extent of my #MusicMonday until I reached 2pm and listened to BeeHiveFM.com (post coming soon about how this online radio station is changing the game).
I’m STILL mad that MySpace has not fully integrated Imeem playlists into their platform. I still have no way to embed a full album playlist that someone else created…As I sit here and struggle, trying to determine a video to include below, I chose one that shows how talented Ryan is to play the instruments in the background of the song, sing, AND produce the track! The video is bananas! At the end, when Ryan is playing the keyboard and says he will have a 60 piece orchestra behind him playing, ahhhhh it made me want to go to one of his shows SO BAD! I knew he was talented, but not like this. I’ll be looking up his schedule *right now*!
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.
