TBT: songs that should be on your pre-date playlist

Every women has a pre-date playlist: a playlist of songs that make her feel sexy, irresistible and powerful.  So guys, I know you have some songs that are a MUST for you to hear, whether you’re going out with a new girl or out with friends.  With all the rituals that come with going out and having a good time, consider adding these throw-back joints to your list of confidence- boosting jams

Diamond In The Back-William DeVaughn

This song has been covered many times, but the original is my favorite version.  This song is really smooth, it’s the perfect jam to get dresses to.  It makes you feel cool; like you are “the shit.” It has a really sexy, beat and the lyrics are dope.

Flashing Lights- Kanye West

okay, so this isn’t really a throw-back, but its a hot song. This song will definitely make you want to “stunt” when you put it on.

Beautiful People- Chris Brown

This song Rings Bells all over-the-place.  It’s really fun to listen to.

Crew Love-Drake

This is one of the songs that you and your crew listen to on the way to where ever you’re going; cuz doesn’t every one have luv for your crew??? I thought so:)



Through-Back Thursdays: Wonerwall by Oasis- are we all waiting for the savior, that is always on a cigarette break?


Movies, books, songs, even poems, tell people what men need and what women need.  I’ve known my boyfriend for nine years now, but it wasn’t until maybe the fifth year, that I found out what I really meant to him.  It wasn’t until I sat down and really looked at our relationship, that I realized ( in the fifth year) that I had abandoned him every time he really needed me, I mean, REALLY needed me.  He had helped me through  the hardest parts of my life-step by step, day by day, tear after tear. But every time he got thrown out of his house, I wasn’t there, even when he got in his car accident, I wasn’t there. When he was at his worst, I wasn’t there. That’s when it dawned on me that partly, because he was a man, I didn’t realize (at the time) that he needed me to be their.  I think men spend a lot of time waiting for women to find out that their not the only ones locked in a tower, waiting for a savior to find them and break the magic curse; that guys need to be rescued sometimes too.  Wonderwall, by Oasis, released in 1995 made me think of the waiting; for that person who you would catch a bullet for, to  understand that you’re made  flesh, and that so far your ass has been getting shot up.  I’m glad I understood that I needed to save him sometimes, but some girls just don’t ever figure it out.


Anyway, that’s why Wonderwall is our thro’ back. wutcha think about this one guys?

Throw-back Thursdays! Mr. Wendal by Arrested Development: More than a rap song,

I remember the first time I heard the 1992 hit single, “Mr Wendal,” by the Atlanta HipHop group Arrested development. I was with my older sister, we were sharing an orange in her bedroom as we sat by the window. On this particular day there was a lot of sunshine; the rays spilled through the window and onto our laps as we sat.

Although I can’t say that this song made me a giver, it definitely made me more of a thinker.  Have you ever seen a man with no clothes, no money, or no plate? It makes me wonder how a man could be proud, even when it seems he has nothing.

At any given time, our tangible measurement of wealth could be dissolved  taken, liquidated, or just plain lost.  Clearly their should be more to a man than his salary.  We should have much more than what our salary says we have, our banks say we have, what our friends say we have, or what anything else, or anyone else says we have.  If you’re having trouble remembering your intangible worth, here’s a few words that will remind you.

If you were Mr. Wendal, which of these would you have to give?

Maybe personality really is everything.
