to spit an opinion, so here goes a new feature on the bliz-og (Thanks to Agendacide for putting this up on her page first)
the friday five
1. Name one song you hate to admit you like.
that’s a tough one. of all time, i may have to say ‘the macarena’ i don’t care how dumb some people think the song is… the hatah in me always gets a nice chill and warm glow when i see the calvacade of losers parade onto the dancefloor and start line dancing like a bad atari video game… all square and blocky movin’. side note: my true hate for the song comes from seeing the video with all the hot girls and then watchin’ two dudes that look like my uncles singing the song.
2. Name two songs that always make you cry.
“Don’t Go Away” by Oasis
… the soundtrack to the worst break up i’ve ever had
“Light Years” by Pearl Jam
… amazing song that proves that eddie vedder is a severely underrated talent. this bad boy hit me hard after a friend died.
3. Name three songs that turn you on.
“Moments in Love” by The Art of Noise
… the ULTIMATE lets get nasty song and it’s 10:30 long
“Crush” by the Dave Matthews Band
… bass is the sexiest instrument and this song uses it to the fullest with lyrics screaming of sex & friendship
as soon as this hits all i can think about is a smoky jazz bar and
“How Soon is Now?” by the Smiths
… electric guitar riffs that recall spasmodic body reaction with a calming voice that lets you know its all right in the palm of yo hand
4. Name four songs that always make you feel good.
“Canary In A Coal Mine” by the Police
… the police always rock and this bad boy screams of ska/funk/pop love
“Groove Is In The Heart” by Deelite
… it has to be the version with the q-tip rap or no go!
“Scenario” by A Tribe Called Quest w/ Leaders of the New School
… whenever this song kicks everybody HAS to form the circle and jump
“Boricua Anthem” by Robi Rob
… both my salsa moves come out in full force when this jam hits along with a couple of freestyle & hip-hop moves
5. Name five songs you couldn’t ever do without.
“(Pride) In the Name of Love” by U2
… best song EVER from the ONE band i can’t live without
“Jeremy” by Pearl Jam
… this song and video would probably never get on the radio now. vedder’s demon cry in the video rocks which, by the way, is the best video ever.
“Numbers” by Kraftwerk
… there wouldn’t be a hip-hop without this electronica classic that afirka bambaata used to make a number of hits and taught all future producers to look far and wide for samples
“Rebel Without A Pause” by Public Enemy
… what hip-hop should always try to be
“Pedro Navaja” by Ruben Blades
… a look in the day of the common thief from the master salsa story teller
