beat up that beat

so i was driving home this afternoon from work, naturally singing with a little bit of seat grooving, when i realized that i basically listen to mostly hip-hop, r&b and rap music. i mean, i really listen to a little bit of everything but in the recent months it’s been a whole lot of funky beats and sweet soul. actually, the more that i think about it, i really have been listening to this genre of music for years. a part of me really wishes i could sing. when i hear the voices of ne-yo, robin thicke, bobby valentino, j. holiday and trey songz i can’t help but belt it out with them. now my voice is absolutely horrible, but i don’t care. but it’s more than that. it’s those damn catchy beats that really make you shake your head, tap your feet or bounce that booty. which leads me to another reason why i like this type of music so much — dancing! i am not afraid to do it. i know some of you have seen me in action. i do like to dance and i actually think i am pretty good at it for a white boy.

what is your favorite type of music? have a favorite artist? what about your favorite song?

currently, i am obsessed with “nothing on you” by b.o.b. and “tie me down” by the new boyz.

word of the day – perculator

    Slash…I hear you. I tend to belt out 80s and 90s soft rock like Starship’s “We Built this City” or Wilson Phillips “Hold On.” Unfortunately when I pass the mic to Mike, I get denied 100% of the time though. Love your blog!

    “Dynamite,” by Taio Cruz is very popular in our house, thakns to my 3-year-old randomly singing it in the car one day. Now I love it. Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” is my other guilty pleasure. That’s right: I’m so uncool that it takes me three years before a “hip” song becomes my guilty pleasure. How sad am I? Naa…I’m pretty awesome. ;-)
