Can’t seem to shake this Jay-Z bug I have.  Everything I’ve tried has not shaken it. Has anyone else been having problems with trying to get away from the Blueprint 3? It’s cocky, it’s real, it’s Jay-Z at his best.  It’s late and random thoughts keep occuring. Check it out and hear it for yourselves. You will not be disapointed.

 

 

What exactly is a “collie man”? Off of the “Live and Direct” cd, this song delivers to all listeners. Relaxing, simple, and re-list-en-able. A Californian band with a great mix of acoustic, reggae, blues, rock, hip-hop, and funk, check them out.

lyrics

And some man live his life
For profits alone
That very same man
He lives his life all alone
And the road to life
Yes it goes up and down
Doesn’t really matter
As long as the music goes on
Hey mister collie man
Why don’t you come round no more
Hey mister collie collie man
Don’t you hear me troubled call
Hey mister collie man
Look i didn’t come to disturb
You best not be come ’round here
Unless you’ve got me sensi herb
I never needed any
Reason for me to say
Through all them troubled times
Yes me love you any way
And the roughest path
You know the rocky rocky road
You know that
Life and love is a
Heavy heavy load
Hey mister collie man
Why don’t you come ’round no more
Hey mister collie collie man
Dont you hear me troubled call
Hey mister collie man
Look i didn’t come to disturb
You best not be come round here
Unless you’ve got me sensi herb
You best not be come round here
Unless you’ve got me sensi herb

When I first heard that Chris Cornell (former lead singer of Soundgarden/Audioslave/Temple of the Dog) was in the makes of creating a hip-hop album with TImbaland last year, I, like the common public mocked the idea. It was only until 2 weeks ago that I purchased the album because I needed some new tunes to add to my repertoire. I’ve always been a huge fan of Cornell’s so my curiousity peaked on that Sunday afternoon and I got ahold of this gem. Half a dozen songs stuck with me from the record “Scream” that I’m sure at some point in time I will end up discussing them on here. However, the track “Long Gone” makes my first “hip hop” blog spiel here. The song can strike an emotion to anyone who is at a loss of something in their life, assuming that they actually pay attention to lyrics. For all you hardcore rock n’ roll juggernauts, including myself, we can let our guard down and accept it for what it is: a beautiful song. Yah its hip-hoppy and kind of sappy, but again, we are all music lovers and I, for one, appreciate the hell out of the album and this song. Any artist that can step away from their comfort zone and do something creative and non-traditional immediately gains my respect. Rock on Chris and lets get a Soundgarden reunion already!
