MMJotW: Cool

Image

I saw Anthony Hamilton perform at the Fox Theatre in Oakland a couple years ago and I was impressed by his performance and live vocals. His voice is so smooth and relaxing with strong roots in gospel. Listening to him sing (especially in this song) makes me want to lay down in the grass and feel the cool breeze pass over me. How does it make you feel?

MMJotW: Brown Sugar

2011-topic-d-angelo

This D’Angelo song is a classic soul jam that always sounds good. D’Angelo announced some new tour dates recently and he will be making a stop in Brooklyn. D’Angelo hasn’t been on the scene for awhile, but I have heard that he is still smooth live. I’m still debating if I should go see him…$60…what do you think? Will it be worth it?

MMJotW: Blurred Lines

This week’s MMJotW ” is inspired by feeling good and grooving to music like nobody’s watching. I loved this song the moment I heard it especially since I’ve always been a fan of Robin Thicke and Pharrell. This song reminds me of Marvin Gaye’s jam “Got To Give It Up,” which is an awesome feel-good song and an all-time classic jam to groove to.  Enjoy the jam and feel good this week! Hey hey hey!

MMJotW: Hope this song gets stuck in your head ALL day…

oh t-pain…

This week’s MMJotW is dedicated to my BFF, who I know has a strong love for this song. This week’s jam is “Low” by Flo-Rida, featuring T-Pain. This is a very special event for the Melinda Mae blog since I will never ever feature another T-Pain song on the MMJotW, so BFF, I hope you appreciate this.

Every time I hear this song, I am always reminded of my BFF and his classy dance moves to this song. And when most people hear the line “Apple bottoms jeans…”, they can likely finish the rest of the hook and then it happens… the song is in your brain for the rest of the day. Damn those boots with the fur! Enjoy this ultimate club jam from 2008 and hope you sing it a few times throughout the day.

MMJotW: & It Was You

The cold weather is still hanging around but the good news is that the days are longer now. With the weather and a bad case of the Mondays providing a damper on today, I decided to pick a song for you all to dance and groove to. This week’s MMJotW is How To Dress Well’s “& It Was You.” Here is the official video, which I would not recommend watching. The song is much better enjoyed with eyes closed, body swaying and fingers snapping. Enjoy!

More reggae for the week…

I’m still dreaming about the sun and sand…so I wanted to share more reggae this week to get us all in the mood for summer. Here is Bob Marley’s classic, “Is this Love”. I love this song and almost every cover of it. Can you imagine lying in a hammock and sipping on a fruity drink while listening to this song?

Some Hawaiian Reggae for the week…

This week’s MMJotW is Anuhea’s song “Only Man in the World” featuring Tarrus Riley. I’m thinking the cold weather is making me want to listen to only Hawaiian and Reggae songs lately. I just keep imagining the sound of waves crashing and laying in the warm sand…sigh…hopefully very soon! I’m also super craving Hawaiian food. Anyone else want to join me for loco mocos, spam musubi and kalua pork? mmmm…anyone? Have a wonderful week and stay warm!
