Old School

eclectic |iˈklektik|
adjective: deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources. ex. Her musical tastes are eclectic.

I don’t know how I got them, but my musical tastes range from country to R&B to Japanese hip-hop. Yeah, you read that right, Japanese hip-hop. I don’t even understand Japanese, but the beats are just that good.

Anyway, tonight I wanted to listen to something different but familiar. A few good songs that your soul can cling onto and voice can sing to. Ya know what I mean? I’ve been on a country binge for awhile. I needed something else than sunshine, moonshine, and tractors.

Having no luck with iTunes radio, I started perusing my iTunes library. There, under my playlists, I found my old school R&B playlist and specifically this track. I love Aaliyah, and this song totally hit the spot on this Friday night. I spent the next hour listening to this album.

So now that you know I’ve got a thing for R&B too, what do you listen to when you’re looking for a familiar feeling?

‘Til the next time.
