MY MUSIC AND ME...

Heyyy! :-)

How's it going? I'm in one of those moods today. The one that (regularly) propels me to raid YouTube for videos older than my mother. Okay. Maybe not that bad :D

So! Here (in no particular order) are the objects of today's cognitive itches. Enjoy while I celebrate my private Requiem Mass for Lady Musica...*sniff*

MIRIAM MAKEBA & HARRY BELAFONTE - ONE MORE  DANCE

Mama Africa. Rest her Soul. This song...The first time i heard this song, i must have shat in me panties...I think I did. I don't remember.

HARRY BELAFONTE & NAT KING COLE - MAMA LOOK AT BOO BOO

LMFOO!! If you've never heard this song, I'm glad I've sowed into your life! Dayum! the end bit is just heeebladdylarious. This song used to be my ring tone in fashion school. I used to miss a lot of calls. Nuffsaid.
(Buhahahhaaahaahahahahhaha....to be continued)

PAUL SIMON - CALL ME AL
 


NOW. THIS. IS. MY. ALL. TIME. FAVOURITE. PAUL SIMON SOOOOOONG! CHUUUUUUUUNE! *OK. DEEP BREATH* Memories of this song are mostly from Radio Nigeria...I remember sitting in my Daddy's car on our way back from his office...Sigh....This video came off the Graceland Tour...

....and this one with Saturday Night Live's Chevy Chase...


...I died. Watch proceedings after the handshake :) Enjoy.
