MM Jam of the Week: Open Your Eyes

Thank you to all of you that have been following my Melinda Mae Jams of the Week. I truly love music and feel super inspired by rhythms and lyrics so it has been really exciting to share all of my favorite music with all of you. All of the songs that I have posted have some significance to my life, whether it is tied to a person, an event or a memory, there is always a very strong meaning to me. This week’s MM Jam of the Week is a special one. This song always makes me so happy and has been sampled in Common’s song “The Light”, which also makes me super happy when I hear it playing.  I absolutely love when cover bands perform this song too. Please enjoy and be inspired. =)

MM Jam of the Week: Brownstone

It’s Monday again so here comes the MM Jam of the Week: Brownstone’s “If You Love Me.” This song brings us back to 1994, which is full of baggy pants, bare midriffs and lots of body-rolling. This song holds a special place in my heart because it reminds me of my old dance team, Ascension. We used to do warm-ups to this song even though it was not 1994. ha So this is dedicated to you Ascension! =)

MM Jam of the Week: Chaka Khan…Chaka Khan…Chaka Khan

Sorry this is a day late but this week’s MM Jam of the Week is one of my favorite songs. Hope you enjoy grooving to this one! Sweet Thang….

1st MM Jam of the Week for 2012

Happy 2012! I can’t believe how quickly 2011 ended and we are now in 2012! I hope that you all enjoyed the holidays and are refreshed for this new year. Every year, I reflect back on the past year and think about how grateful I am to have such wonderful memories and the opportunity to create more. I am also so thankful for my amazingly loving family and friends. I wish you all a fabulous 2012 year and hope that it is filled with joy, positivity, love and gratitude.

And to celebrate 2012, here is the MM Jam of the Week…Stevie Wonder’s “Overjoyed”.
