Hip Hop is how I define myself. Hip Hop did not start in the late 70's. It started long ago, undefined, from several points around the globe culminating into what we now call Hip Hop. Hip Hop is a way, a feeling, a thought. This blog reflects my Hip Hop.

Thank you for paying attention.

Songs that mean something. To me.

Nothing much to see here. Simply a list of songs that, at one time or another, have caught me off guard, made me think, protected or saved me from some pretty overwhelming emotions.

What a Wonderful World (Louis Armstrong): Quite possibly one of the greatest songs ever recorded. Simple. Sweet. To the point.

Cloud People (Sweetback): The horns swept me away...carried me, when I most needed it.

I'm Old Fashioned (John Coltrane): This one belongs to me and my wife. Forever.

Sweetest Taboo (Sade): Do I need to explain, really?

I'm Missin' Your Love (Kem): What's the title say? Well...there you have it.

Joy (Blackstreet): I simply cannot listen to this song without thinking of my youngest daughter. Subsequently, getting choked up @ the same time.

I'm sure you've got a list too. Why not share it?
