Corinne Bailey Rae: Choux Pastry Heart

…I was just waiting for your phone call.


One of my favorite Corinne Bailey Rae songs out there. She puts it best when she says it’s “a good mixture of hope and loss in a song.” Beautiful song and a gorgeous singer. I read a Youtube comment on one of her videos saying why more black women couldn’t be like here. “Too many hoochies and not enough hipsters.” I co-sign that. Corinne has class, femininity and soul–a modern day role model for media-influenced females like myself. Keep it up girl!

John Legend: Live It Up

This is an oldie, but still one of my favorite John Legend songs. I was driving home on 76 today and suddenly started to crave some soulful tunes, and John Legend automatically came to mind. He needs to come out with a new cd pronto. Until then, I guess we just gotta live it up. :)
