I love music!! I have over 10,000 songs on my iPod and it’s not even halfway full. One of my favorite blog’s hipped me to Old School Fridays with a different theme each Friday. Old School Friday is perfect for me. Although, I’m in my mid-twenties I have an old soul–I’m a young old head. Normally I listen to more old school music than newer artists. They just don’t make them like they used to (lol).
This week’s theme is “Music From the Year You Graduated High School.” I chuckled at this week’s theme because 2000 isn’t anywhere close to being old school. Nevertheless, this was the year of rap and boy bands. Take a listen…
Santana (ft. Wyclef & The Product G&B) – Maria Maria
Santana came back like he never left the music scene. This is still one of the songs I vibe to.
Destiny’s Child – Jumpin’, Jumpin’
Even the controversy of group members going and coming couldn’t stop this from being a hot track.
Whitney Houston – My Love Is Your Love
Whitney came back strong after 8 years without a studio album.
Eminem – The Way I Am
Eminem basically told the world what he thought about all the criticism over his lyrics.
- Dr. Dre’s “Still D.R.E.” & “XXplosive” ~ Dre came back from behind the boards to let us know he didn’t fall off.
- Nelly’s “Country Grammar” ~ Yeah it had a sing-song hook, but you couldn’t get it out of your head.
- Erykah Badu’s “Bag Lady” ~ This track used the same beat as Dr. Dre’s “XXplosive,” although a different version appeared on the album.
- Sisqo’s “Incomplete” ~ Sisqo stayed true to the Dru Hill sound on his debut album as a solo artist.
