Songs That Are Stuck In My Head

Hey all, I've missed a couple of installments, so, this morning I'm doing just a few songs for you. These are songs that I've heard recently and have been stuck in my head.

I. Them Belly Full- Bob Marley I heard this song sampled in Messengers by J. Period and K'naan, they used this as a beat. It's a really cool song.

II. The Gardner- The Tallest Man On Earth I'm pretty sure this song's about killing people and lying, but it's really pretty and I really like it.

III. Lemonade- Coco Rosie A really haunting song. It takes a while to get used to her voice, but when I first heard this song I listened to it on repeat about 5 times.

IV. Wash Away- Joe Purdy A really pretty tune, it was on lost, but I heard it for the first time by Joe Purdy at Mile High Music Fest.

V. When The Saints Go Marching In- James Brown FUNK.FUNK.FUNK. Gotta have that funk. It doesn't get much better than this.

VI. Exhibit C- Jay Electronica A truly sensational young lyricist, Jay Electronica does some really cool word play in this song.

VII. Oyimbo (live)- Femi Kuti Fela's son Femi Kuti does some awesome Afro beat here, I love the horn section, awesome groove, and he starts out the song singing do re mi fa and so on. Cool stuff.

That's all for today, I have to go to school. Keep on listening to music and expanding your knowledge. Stephen
