Thirty Questions--Thirty Days: Day 10--Songs You listen To When Your Happy, Sad, Bored, Hyped, Mad

As I pondered this question, I found it a bit hard to decide exactly what I listen to when I feel a certain emotion. Music soothes me on a level so deep that there aren't words to describe it. I feel music in my soul, in every fiber of my being. If I had a great singing voice, I would probably sing from the highest mountains and peaks. Sadly I do not possess such a voice, so I bombard my local Karaoke establishments with my subpar, less than stellar, but quite enthusiastic voice every chance I get!!! I decided to share some of my favorites that would be in rotation, if these particular emotions were to arise. I am a hip-hop and R&B lover for sure, but my love of music spans all genres. Enjoy!!


Jill Scott--A Long Walk
This song makes me feel so happy inside. Jill's voice has a way of making everything brighter!! She is a "songstress extraordinaire"!!

Erykah Badu--Bag Lady

This song makes me want to smile and sing. Erykah is one of the most creative individuals and I am proud to have her in my playlist!!


John Legend--Ordinary People

This song is one of the many that I love by John Legend. When I am sad, his lyricism and vocal styling moves me to my happy place.


Corinne Bailey Rae--Like A Star

This song invokes creativity in me. When I am bored, I play this song and I'm not sure why, but the creativity just flows!!


Nas & Damian Marley--As We Enter

This song is nothing short of AMAZING!! It makes me want to dance, party, shout, jump, and everything else that requires ridiculous amounts of energy!! Fabulous collaboration!!


Alanis Morisette--You Oughta Know

This songs helps me bring those raw, dirty emotions to the surface.

Luther Vandross & Cheryl Lynn--If This World Were Mine

This song, in contrast to the one above, helps to keep me calm. It makes me remember happier times and dream of better ones. I HEART this song!!
