I tear up on a good love song. Call me a bitch or girl if you want but I get this chill down my spine, my heart fills, I get warm and it just happens. I get very emotional hearing an amazing love song. So what is it?
This post came about when I was listening to Melanie Fiona’s new album “The MF Life”. This truly is a must have album and unlike most, there are 17 tracks instead of ten and three of them are interludes( I can’t stand interludes but India Arie does wonderful ones). So I’m listening to the album and just feeling the words so much. She truly has an amazing voice and uses it to evoke enormous emotions in each song. But she isn’t the first artist I’ve listened to and was overwhelmed by the beauty of the songs. This has been a theme with me for as long as I can remember and I love it.
I’m a huge ball of emotion. I have so much love just waiting to be released on the right man and these songs just get it stirring in me. I can even be at the gym working out and a good love song can make my exercise better as opposed to the club bangers most like to workout too. And it’s hard for me not to sing at the top of my lungs between sets at the gym because I truly get overwhelmed when I great song fills my eardrums.
I could give you a list of my favorite songs: Jazmine Sullivan-Lions, Tigers, Bears; Stuttering.. Monica-Everything to me..Aaliyah- At your best; 4 page letter… and many many more. The point is these songs tell a story and these artist know how to hit moments of love in every persons life. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t have a love song that completely recounts a break up or special feeling they have had in their life. And while I’m suppose to be a man and all macho, I’m all mush and someone will benefit from it.
So tell me about a song that spoke to you. Share with me the lovely feeling you got when that love song came on and you were trapped by it. I can’t wait to read your comments.
