BET THAT ...
... caught your attention! I am at the library, on my way back from my therapist. The subject is a lyric segment from a band, Cop Shoot Cop. The song is called 'Relief', and I would not be surprised if I am the only one outside of the band and the folks in the studio when they made it that has heard it.
Therapy went well. He thinks that June may be a better date, if I can manage it at all. He brought up SEVERAL strong points, but of course, understands. So do I, so I am here trying to diffuse (like that word ..!) some of my emotions. See, I am feeling like I feel (from the song, 'Free Yourself'), and I don't want the girls to see it. Sometimes may eyes well with tears, because I am happy that I can honestly see myself somewhere, that if I don't belong, I am accepted for who I am and what I can contribute. Don't want them to be misconstrued as something else ...
This song is pretty self explanatory by its title. From the L.A. ska band, the video is super cool, for real. It captures the feeling that you could imagine in a conversation between two friends, one of which needs to lift himself up out of something. I guess someone has felt like that regarding me during this relationship, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.
I HAD to do this. And any good General will tell you, you want to gain victory with the least amount of bloodshed possible. Everyone in this thing will be able to step back, and go their seperate ways, enriched by the experience.
What more could you want? A cookie? Anyway, it is a fun, super kung fu mega cool video. Check it out on You Tube! Even if you can't dig the song, it is the fun that the cats are having, that go with the song! The lyrics I can imagine either Nebraska or my B.F.F singing them to me, trying to shake me up!
The classic song for couples that start with that ignorance of the world, armed only with a love for one another, that finally, wearily ends with people growing apart ...
... no need to eloborate further.
WHAT YOU WAITIN' FOR
Y'all do know I can't dance, right? So how did THIS party mover get on my play list? Well, the Jaye Beez's were part of the Native Tongue rap collective that include Latifah, A Tribe Called Quest, and De La Soul, along with Monie Love. Since I already listened to De La and Tribe, I picked up the Jungle Brothers tape too.
Yeah, they were super socially conscious (check out 'Beyond This World' to find out how they sound too), but this song, was a flat out body movin' party song. It lifts my soul, and I feel light listening to it. It maybe super dated, but it is still funky enough for me!
It means I feel kung fu mega cool. For real.
This is an amicable thing, and I am glad for that. Nixxie and I had that kind of split ... so did me and Delta Girl ... Pecan Sandie and my first wife, not so much.
So I am at .600 on the break up meter!
