real quick i want to talk about my fave song of the yr and then i'll talk about the 2 previous yrs...
my fave song of 2010 was:
"cosmic library zone" from charles hamilton
the reason this was my fave is because the sound, some of the lyrics and the overall presentation seemed to match me a lot this yr
it has a feeling of being broken yet content in its broken-ness
also a few other notable things about the song
1. it was freestyled
2. i worked in a library and in the song he's talking about adoring a girl while in the library
3. he said "i live in a trash can" .. which to me is kinda like saying "u have no reason to like me" which is how i felt a lot this yr with girls
4. it almost feels like he's singing about the girl to himself.. like he's just alone in his own zone, admiring a girl
5. the singing shouldn't sound good but it does.. does that make sense? i like the WAY he sings it the most.. "can't block meee" lol
my fave song of the yr from 09 was soulja boy's "swag-flu"
what i liked about that was how he turned a big negative- swine-flu, into a positive song with a sort of funny appeal and a great beat.. when i think about it.. this is another song that feels almost like he's singing it to himself.. like something u'd make while looking in the mirror in the morning or some ish
my fave song of 08 was wired all wrong's "15 minutes"
this song totally matched how i felt at the time.. not so much the lyrics but just the feelings it evoked.. it was a sort of cool collected aggression
