"Breathing Underwater," Hiatus Kaiyote

...

This is my favorite track from Hiatus Kaiyote!

I remember that years ago, Chaka Khan was supposed to get together with Lewis Taylor,

but it never materialized, for some reason.

This track always sounded to me like what a

Chaka/Lewis Taylor meeting could have sounded like...

At least I'm not a hypocrite like you. You get upset when people put down somebody you like, but you do the same thing. I'm not ashamed about anything I like. The OP said list your all time favorite songs and I did. It didn't say anything about criticizing somebody else's choices.

We use to have a lot of people (most are gone on prince.org) who's taste in music varied far and wide... yea, you may have been teased about an artist /songs but your taste was your taste and respected as such. In my instance, I was exposed to an artist I'd never heard of or was moved to give a seccond listen to someone I ignored or dismissed. confused

Having said that... this is hard. I listen to a lot of different genres of music. No particular order, if you asked me this next week, I'd have a complete new list, for sure. smile Not in any particular order.

1. Here's that Rainy Day (Various artist: Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Evans)

2. Never Gonna Say Goodbye (Jackson Five)

3. Love Child (The Supremes)

4. What's Gone On (Marvin Gaye)

5. I Write A Song For You (Earth, Wind, & Fire)

6. Nature Boy (Nat King Cole)

7. Live it UP (Isley Brothers)

8. Respect (Aretha Franklin )

9. Funny (Barbara Streisand)

10. As (Stevie Wonder)


============ Attempt to enlarge Font.

Great songs pics! The Font used for the words is "too small though". You know that those of us who are 40+ years old tend to have eye problems/issues/far-sighted/near sighted, etc....

cool

Dalia11, I don't know if its my computer(s) but sometimes when I make space for third, or fourth sentence the Font gets smaller and smaller. I'm not sure what that's all about, but I'm going to check it out. That's why I'm typing on bold now. Has anyone experience this?

Why would it be shocking to you? You've been here longer than me. lol I've had the exact same taste the entire time I've been on this site. It's as predictable as Vainandy liking disco and disliking Whitney Houston. You can go in the archives and pull up all the old threads I've made to prove it. smile As a matter a fact here's one from 2011 about bubblegum music.

That's what I thought as well. It sounded like something from Ask Rufus. Their sound permeates through the album, and I can't wait until they release their new one, which is apparently in the can.

Nai Paim, their dynamic lead singer, has survived a cancer scare.

nod

I'd define Micky's taste in music as, eclectic. Many on the org music taste went beyond the top 20, 50, 100 charts anyways.

I was reading an article [via the UK Guardian News paper ] about how the Bakersfield country music scene /sounds has gone AWOL for a minute. The first person I thought of was to asking about all of this was, Mickey, his opinion / thoughts on this subject.

Hey, what can we say, people like who they like, nothing wrong with that. lol....Some of the people I know think I'm weird because I loved Prince all my life. They thought he was weird and that I was weird as well for liking anything about him. They always seemed puzzled about that. lol

He was weird and his music is weird sonically and lyrically.

That's your opinion of him, and you're entitled to it. He wasn't weird to me and neither was his music, that's my opinion, and I'm entitled to it as well. wink

Well, sorry but what's wrong with him being weird, his music and lyrics are weird, but not in a bad way, on the contrary his weirdness made him who he was. Don't come and tell that lyrics like Scarlet, Shockedelica or La, La are very common.

What do you mean? Like on the radio? If so, then that's been out of style on mainstream country radio. It's mostly "Bro Country" that's popular now. Some of it has trap beats and ever since that Nelly & Tim McGraw duet became a big hit, it's been somewhat common for contemporary country acts to have rap collabs. Even a veteran like Willie Nelson did some songs with Snoop Dogg. But I guess you might know the connection with those 2. razz Willie has not always been strictly country anyway, he's released jazz records in the past and had a hit single with Julio Iglesias.
