Category: Song of the Day


I’m out of creative retirement, and the Shuffle hit me with the theme song to the last script I wrote.

Beautiful song by the Beatles.

Devastating cover by Mister Benson. Just a huge smile on my face whenever I hear this.

Enjoy!

We know what’s coming this week. If you don’t, don’t know what to tell you.

Don’t feel like everyday will be a love song type of day, but we’ll start that way.

Enjoy!

Mayer officially announced his summer tour. Already texted/DM’d my fellow fans; I see he’s wrapping up this run in the Forum.

Plenty of personal complaints can be said about the man, but as a straight up guitar maestro, I mean, come on…

First draft done. Producer hat going on thinking of how to make this happen. The director is planning a comeback.

Been put back into my creative wheelhouse. Happy.

A mood, defined by a song that never fails to put a smile on my face.

Is this the most, straight up ‘pop’ hit Luther ever had? Probably.

Enjoy!

Whatever we feel about Timberlake (the Boondocks joke: Michael Jackson is not a genre of music comes to mind), this song goes.

Thank you Timbaland.

And this video!  Man.  Bill Simmons called this ‘the white people’s Hit Em Up’, and he wasn’t wrong.  I mean, he got a straight Britney clone…

Enjoy!

The weekend is here, and I’ve been blown away.

The Gram, THE GRAM! of all places put this cover on my radar.

3000 is one of my all time favorite lyricists, and I’ve always loved this song.  As a singer though, I say with no arrogance we’re in the same league: ‘actor singers’.  People who may impress you at a karaoke bar, who wouldn’t embarrass themselves completely in a ‘La La Land’ type musical.

But to hear this song, sung by someone who can actually, as my people say, BLOW?

Man, I’m floating!

Have a good weekend gang.

New week.  Mood.

Enjoy!

One more song…

This is darkly comic now, but in my deep dive of Malcolm’s life there was a 48 hour period last week where I was listening to the full audio of ‘Message to the Grassroots’, and ‘the Ballot or the Bullet’, then Kanye went public calling a slavery a choice and I swear…

Sunday I’ll go into detail about where my head is at before the social media fast.

Have a good weekend.

Liquid lunches and reading and getting up a little bit earlier…almost that time.

I’ve already heard this ‘sign’ from three different places this morning.  Good time for it to be the Song of the Day.

Enjoy.

First, a serious editor’s note…

I did a quick scan to try to find an accurate date, it looks like 2013 was the last time a ‘Song of the Day’ was either from or had the hook sung by ‘you know who.’  So if the time has come for the Pied Piper of R&B to be held accountable, you already know where I stand.

Now on to more fun feelings.

How about a song from the Pulitzer winner?  That still kills me…

Enjoy!
