Ok... Time to Lighten Up the Mood

So... my last entry was depressing LOL. I had a lot on my mind and it seems like blogging is a great way to release it :). Now it's time to write about something happier haha.

Well, I've lately been on the Neo-Soul tip. I love everything about Neo-Soul, D.C. (besides freakin go-go), is filled with Neo-Soul and people that love the music as well. There's this place off the U Street called Bohemian Cavern. I love it. Every Wednesday they have open mic poetry and singing. I went there when there was a artist doing a mini concert and it was pretty hot. I felt like I was in Love Jones (My favorite movie by the way). I kind of went on a break from Hip-Hop and all I listen to on my car on the way to work is my Neo-Soul CD mix, Raheem DeVaughn, etc. I love it. I decided to dedicate this post to some of my favorite Neo-Soul songs:

Dwele-Old Lovas - Dwele

The Fact Is (I Need You) - Jill Scott

For Real - Amel Larrieux

On and On (A Capella) - Erykah Badu

Didnt Cha Know - Erykah Badu

Believe - Raheem DeVaughn

Marathon (All Night Long) - Raheem DeVaughn

Love Calls - Kem

Butterflykisses - Goapele

Musiq Soulchild - Previouscats - Musiq Soulchild

Tell Him - Lauryn Hill

Its Getting Late - Floetry

Good Man - India Arie

Far Away - Kindred the Family Soul

Fortunate - Maxwell

And there's sooooo many more...

Today is Neo-Soul day... it's an official holiday LOL

i LOVE dwele.

love jones is one of my favorite movies as well. its funny i've wanted to fall in love like that ever since i've seen that movie. the break-up, the reconciliation, the sex, it all. that movie has been such a force for me.

oh and i work right down the street from the bohemian caverns. real mellow vibe there.

& why don't you like go-go?

@1980- Yea BC is pretty nice. I can't wait to go back next wednesday.

@charles- go get his last CD and the one coming in a couple of weeks! It's gonna be hot :)

@one soulful negro- You know what... I kinda wanted a relationship like Love Jones too haha, that's weird! I like some go-go, but a lot of it is a mess!! I hate when the radio plays it at the same time too! LOL

@dessec- U better buy the CD in 3 weeks too! lol
