SongVersations: “The Lady In My Life” Feat. Steven Russell Harts And Allen McNeil

Here I am scrolling on social media and I see that one of my favorite classics, “The Lady In My Life” by the legendary Michael Jackson was remade by Pasadena’s finest.

Steven Russell Hearts and Allen McNeil, of the Legendary R&B group Troop. My, my, my…. You guys went there, and I’m glad you went there and continue to keep going there..

That’s what it’s all about…. The music. That’s what it should always be about…. Love, music, brotherhood. What else matters?!!

Without music how would this world be? Your gift is your gift is to share with the world. Well, It’s about time 🙂 got dammit!! LOL. Hell took y’all so long, lol.

One thing I like is good music and after TROOP being in the industry for 30+ years, it seems like it was just yesterday when you heard another classic remake. “All I do Is Think Of You”. Sung again by TROOP, was just playing on the airwaves. And what about “Mamacita” Damn, I miss these times….

And here they are doing it again. Taking us back when music meant something. Because I have no clue what’s going on in the industry today. I feel sorry for our youth and this so-called music they have to grow up on. I must say they do Michael Jackson justice, on all levels and I am sure he is in heaven smiling…..

And very well pleased as I’m sure you all are. Not everybody can do an MJ song and get away with it. Fans have been waiting on the two of you for a minute now. Waiting on the two of you to be the next K-ci and Jojo. And now the wait is finally over. With this remake, you can hear the two distinctive voices apart from one another.

While still staying in the melodic rhythm. There’s no confusions if you listen closely and have a good ear for music. Those same sensual emotions, that energy, Michael Jackson made you feel, when he sang this song was captured in this song. If you wanna be taken down memory lane, when music was good, when music made you feel.

Then support real music, by artist who can really sing. The artist you love are still around and they need to know that real music matters, to real people and real fans. Lets get back to romance and love… Download “The Lady In My Life.” You will not regret it!!!

SongVersations: “POISON” By Bell, Biv, DeVoe

“That girl is poison…. Never trust a big butt and a smile that girl is poison. If I were you, I’d take precaution, before I step to meet a fly girl.”

Isn’t that what Bell, Biv, DeVoe warned men about? Don’t trust a woman who is attractive with a nice body. Lets really think about these lyrics for a minute, shall we….

This song was the theme for a lot of men, whether they were in the industry or not. To never trust a beautiful woman and if she has a nice body, forget it, she’s POISON, LOL…. She’ll break your heart, take all your money and trap you. Although I love BBD and I like this song to dance to, I really paid attention to the lyrics when it first came out in 1990.

Lyrics are everything to me as I am very conscious as to what I watch and listen to. I already know that they were speaking their truth and experience (especially in the music industry) and what better way to convey that is through music. We all heard the song “ N.E. Heartbreak” It is very hard for these men in this industry to find a woman who is down for them. Once you’re in the public eye, you are leery of everyone that comes into your space.

Regardless of what society thinks, artist do not have it all. It’s easy to get it twisted and think because the cameras are rolling, that these artist that we love have everything, when in fact it is very isolating at the top. You may not have changed but the people around you do. As trusting as you would like to be, its hard. You trust the wrong person and if it doesn’t work out forget it. Artist have to protect themselves in ways that other people who are not in the industry, don’t really have to think about on a daily basis.

Your whole world changes once people know who you are. When I heard this song, I automatically knew that these men got burned by a ‘beautiful’ woman or several. And I’m pretty sure a lot of men in this world have. Some women know their attractive and use their looks to trap a man and get what they want. A woman is a man’s weakness. A lot of men will overlook things, simply because a woman is attractive. Next thing you know, they get caught up and this beautiful woman is making their life a living hell.

Now they don’t trust any woman that’s attractive because in their mind she’s Poison. I’ve heard comedians joke about not wanting an attractive woman, because beautiful women are too much of a headache, lol. They cause problems. They want an average woman, whatever that means. A woman that doesn’t cause to much attention. This song made me really observe how society treats what they consider “attractive or beautiful” people.

My question for you is, what is beautiful? To me what makes a person beautiful is their soul, who they are on the inside. All the things that make them real and vulnerable. Not what they have or what they do for a living.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting someone who is easy on the eyes. That’s the first thing you notice. I do however notice that when people find you attractive, from both sexes, there is this negative stigma attached to it. You see it all the time in the movies and in television. A beautiful woman or handsome man snaps. An attractive person always has issues. They can’t find love, they have low self-esteem and they are just a nut case.

If you’re married or dating an attractive person issues come up. You think they are cheating. Because every one is staring at your significant other admiring how attractive they are. It makes one feel insecure then you become more possessive, wanting your mate to tone down who they are for you. When people find you attractive, you’re idolized. You’re perfect in their eyes. Attractive people can do no wrong. Thats what they want us to believe.

I notice that whenever a man has a beautiful woman, he doesn’t know how to fully love and accept her for who she is on the inside or her mind. It takes a secure man to be able to be with a woman who is attractive and has a brain. Men and women get possessive over their significant other. Especially if you’re in the public eye and they feel everyone should back up off you.

What they fail to realized is that you are not a possession, you don’t belong to them. It’s very naive to think that your S.O. will never find another person attractive. Attractive people in the public eye, feel isolated. It can be a pretty lonely way to live. You never know why someone wants to be with you. It’s both a blessing and a curse. This is article is not a pity article for attractive people, you can’t help how you look.

It’s just an in-depth observation. When people notice that you find them attractive, that’s always going to be at the forefront of everything. Attractive people are bombarded with adulation. People think every attractive man or woman has many lovers and that is simply not the case. Why is it that we have these negative stigmas surrounded by our idea of beauty or what we deem to be attractive?

We automatically don’t trust them because they are attractive in our eyes. I know people who are beautiful on the inside and it reflects on the outside, that suffer from low self-esteem, depression and they don’t see themselves as attractive because of how people treat them. Everything is about their looks. Attractive people have to fight harder for people to see that they actually have a brain. They’re craving to be SEEN.

The intimacy they crave is being overshadowed by their looks. They feel they are never going to find love, so some settle just to have someone, even if it means that they are not treated well. To them, somebody is better than nobody. They simply do not love themselves enough to wait for the right person to accept them for who they are. Why is it so hard for people to look into someones soul and see that’s where their true beauty lies.

You have people who know they are attractive and they want the whole world to know it. They have no humility. I’ve been called names by people who think I’m a stuck up and they never had a conversation with me. I hear all the time from people, “Oh my God you’re so nice and sweet. I thought you was a bitch.” And I’m like why? This is all because of how I look. I simply do not see what people see when they look at me.

Anyone who knows me on a person level, knows I don’t like attention of any kind. I hear from men all the time, its hard to find a woman who is both beautiful on the inside as well as the outside and has a mind. Or all the qualities that they want in a woman. But when men find this kind of woman, they fail to know how to treat her. Especially if she’s in independent. Some men will try to make this kind of woman feel insecure, because of how he feels about himself. Instead of letting this woman evolve. He’ll try to hold her back and become possessive.

It takes a secure man to be with a woman who other men find attractive. Thank goodness for songs like  New Edition’s, “Sorry you’re not my kind of girl”. Which is one of my favorite songs by them. I love this song, because you don’t always hear men say things like in music. Songs like this just prove that just because you’re beautiful doesn’t mean, that I’m attracted to you. I need to get to know you first on a deeper level. There needs to be chemistry. Not everybody is blinded by beauty.

Songs like “Shop Around”  Lets you know, a man wants a well-rounded woman, that has something going for herself, as well as being attractive. You gotta bring more to the table than just your looks. Looks can only hold your attention but for so long. Dreams and goals are attractive. Have this for yourself, not for a man. Men are tired of carrying a woman. You gotta shop around and selective. I think BBD learned their lesson. They learned to look at more than just a big butt and a smile, LOL :). Hope you enjoyed!

SongVersations: “Do Me Baby” By The Legendary Meli’sa Morgan

Meli’sa Morgan,… where do I began?

Passion, sensuality, rawness, daring, erotic and emotional depth… oh and goosebumps… that’s what comes to mind when I hear the legendary artist Meli’sa Morgan sing. Anything else would be an understatement.

As soon as I hear the name Meli’sa’s Morgan, my mind automatically reverts back to 1985 when I first heard her sing on the radio. I stood still as I was captivated!

Here we are in this big ol’ empty room, staring each other down. You want me just as much, as I want you. Lets stop fooling around. Take me baby, kiss me all over. Honey play with my love. Bring out whats been in me for far to long. Baby you know, that’s all I keep dreaming of. Do me, baby, like you never done before, oh give it to me. Till I just can’t take no more. “

Let that marinate……. Let that sink into your cells…. You feel that? You ready for more?

Let me take you down memory lane. Meli’sa Morgan made Prince’s song “Do Me, Baby” A classic hit in 1985! Even Prince admitted it. It stayed at the top of the charts for 3 weeks. Meli’sa brought that raw, soulful, feminine sensuality that was needed to make this song a hit. When Meli’sa came out the world had to stop and take notice of this sultry singer.

I think you would all agree with me, when I say Meli’sa did this song justice. Prince was very pleased! I wonder how many people had babies off this song, LOL. I love the boldness of how female artist back then, reveled in their sensuality. How can you listen to this song and not want to make love. It just puts you in the sensual mood. I got that look in my eyes right now, as I listen and write this article, lol :).

If you’re not in the mood while listening to this song, something is clearly wrong with you, lol. Back in the day, artist told stories, they took you on a sensual journey with their music.

You could hear a song like this and get a visual of two people staring each other down, with passion in their eyes just ready to be intertwined in each others souls.

You can’t just listen to an artist like Meli’sa and not get caught up in her voice and sensuality. Meli’sa makes you feel every lyrical emotion throughout your body. If you’re not naked by the time this song is over, something is not right, LOL.

Singing like this brings you to your knees. You have to have a spiritual musical breakdown, to get that passion out of your body to sing a song like this. Every song has its climax and it starts at the 3:34 mark and ends at 3:52. Leaving you breathless. I anticipate this part so much. I love the mentalgasm I get from it. It leaves my body weak in ecstasy. It’s a world-wind of ecstasy and passion. You feel it in your gut.

Singers like Meli’sa Morgan come once in a lifetime. Meli’sa brings that soul to music, you can tell she used to be a gospel singer the way she belts out those soulful notes. You can always tell gospels singers from the way other singers sing. If you can sing gospel, you can sing anything because of your vocal range. You can hear her musical influences as she sings.

Meli’sa is up there with the greats of Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, Miki Howard, Karyn White and many more to name a few. Back in the day you had to come with it and that’s exactly what Meli’sa did.

Meli’sa was just too much!! You had to sing with passion and emotion or no record deal. Now record deals are giving out like free food samples at the mall. It makes you wonder can music be saved?!?

Will artist like Meli’sa get the shine and recognition they truly deserve in a major way? Artist like Meli’sa is what’s missing in today’s music. You just don’t hear this kind of soulful singing anymore. It’s hard to find soulful artist that sing with this kind of depth. This song makes you feel beautiful and sensual. I love the rawness and passion in this song. Songs like this lets you know its ok to be sensual and uninhibited  as a woman towards your lover.

If you want him say so. So many times women hold back who they are, as if they don’t feel or have sexual desires. And here you have a woman saying, “Bring out whats been in me for far to long. Baby you know, that’s all I keep dreaming of, Do Me Baby.” Like right now! Take me got dammit, LOL. Do me like you never done before. She wants her lover to make her feel alive. Like a woman. She hungers for that passion when two sensual souls connect. That kind of passion is missing in romantic relationships.

I never knew there was another version of this song and until I found out Prince did this first. It never got the airplay it deserved until Prince let Meli’sa covered it. This song has Prince written all over it. We all know how sensual Prince was.

That energy came across in his music. The fire and passion all over this song is pure orgasmic ecstasy. It’s hard not to listen to this song and not have it on repeat for hours or rewind certain parts. You anticipate every beat.

Meli’sa vocals hits you at the back of your neck and shoots down your spine. If you wanna ignite that passion and romance in your relationship, just play Meli’sa’s music. I love how in an article in Essence Magazine, as Meli’sa was reflecting on Prince’s life and legacy. How Meli’sa pointed how selfless Prince was with sharing his gift and mentoring other artist. Prince was not selfish. It’s true you have a lot of artist who don’t mentor others and they want the shine all to themselves.

Sometimes its like that, you have artist that come a long and make other artist songs great. It’s not taking anything away from who they are as an artist, but sometimes it’s just meant to be. To have another artist cover a song. Music is a love affair between many artist and you have to humble yourself or already be humble to say “wow, you did that, you turned my song into a hit. Thank you!”

That maybe this is the reason why I did the song, so someone with a beautiful soulful sensual voice as yours could bless it and give it life. Not to many artist do that. As artist are very critical of their work. You hear stuff like that happen all the time. Songs are just meant for other people who passed on it or couldn’t give it what it really needed. It happens like that in creative fields. It made me think of myself as a writer.

It’s hard to come across people who genuinely want to mentor and help you. I’m always grateful for artist who take time out to read my work and even other writers who ask me for my opinion on their work.

In order for me to write for someone, I must have their music already infused in my spirit. I have to understand them as an artist. I need to feel that sensual energy. Creators want to know that their art means something. They need someone to go in-depth and really hear, not just listen.

Meli’sa also brought us hits like “Fool’s Paradise.” This is a favorite jam on Ralph Tresvant’s  “Inside the Ride Show”. Every time Diggy plays this song on the air, I’m just brought back to a time when music was soulful. When it was just sensual. From the moment that beats drops, I know Meli’sa’s about to bring it! I’m so glad I grew up in a time when artist could really sing and they made you feel. It was a full mind body, spiritual experience and even brought you to tears with ecstasy.

Music like this got deep down in your soul. Living legendary artist like Meli’sa Morgan, are still around and we need to pay homage to them and let them know how much we love and appreciate their creative contribution to real soulful music. God blessed them with the gift of voice and song and they need our voice! Artist might feel like the world has forgotten about them, but I know I haven’t and I hope you haven’t too! Music matters. It really does!

You can follow Meli’sa Morgan on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Held Captive By Music

Music knows it’s held me captive and it has no plans of letting me go now

Music knows the way I feel as soon as I hear that beat drop

It senses my energy and invites me into its world

With music there is no judgement, I can just let go and be myself

Music has me under its complete spell 

I obey music with my mind, spirit and body 

I reach for music all day, every day…. in the middle of the night

Feenin, hungry, thirsty needing that next fix, that next melody and lyric

I need music’s conversation for I feel it’s the only thing that understands me

Music knows I’m an addict, that I try to find ways to have the voice and lyrics inside of me

I want it so bad, I want to drink it and taste it, inject it, cover my body with it

Music can have its way with me at anytime or any place

Music understands me and wants me to be a slave to it

Music knows that I will take on the artist spirit and feel what the artist feel

I can be free, naked and totally uninhibited with music

Music hits all of my erogenous zones and makes my body feel intoxicated

Music loves touching every part my body. Seeing it’s notes on my body like a music sheet

Wondering which part of my body it’s going to play with next

Music loves penetrating the portal of life and playing with my love button

That vibrating sensation is just what music wants

Music loves to take me there even if it’s just for a moment of release

Music knows I never want to let it go and it doesn’t want me to

Music loves to undress me and wishes it had lips so it could kiss me

And taste every part of my body with its lyrics and melody

Music traces it’s lyrics on my skin like braille

When I get high with music, music is very pleased for it knows

It has done its job of bringing me to ecstasy

Music knows I’m addicted but music says, its ok be free because it’s a safe kind of high.

Music loves when I feel sensual and sexy, for it enjoys pleasing me

And knows that I’m in-tuned with its melodies

Music enjoys tantalizing me, it enjoys my sexy moans,

The way my body moves to it’s rhythm, to the instruments

Music smiles for music is very pleased with my reaction

Music sees the lyrics, passion and fire in my eyes reaching to the depths of my soul

Music loves when I repeat certain parts of a song

Then music feels my body pulsate with anticipation of its next melody

Music enjoys the anticipation of my mental climax, for it know my body will follow

Music loves to take my breath away and breathe the lyrics back inside of me

Giving me life over and over again, knowing it’s the only resuscitation I need

Music wants me to always be held captive under its spell

And I want to for as long as I can breathe music in my lungs

But music knows the day will come, when it will have to share me

When it will lead me to another music lover, that can take over

So that I can experience the human part of music’s ecstasy

Music wonders who will this music lover be? I wonder too?

Music will not just hand me over to anybody, music will be very selective 

When choosing to hand me over to another music lover and so will I 

Music knows they must be just as passionate, they have to want to be high

They can’t get jealous of the way music makes me feel

They can’t censor me or music will take me back and keep me to itself

Becoming possessive over me and never wanting to let me go again

Music is selfish and I understand because we get each other

Our love affair is deep and it will take another etherial soul to get how music makes me feel

Music knows that not everybody gets music, nobody everybody feels the way I feel

That my ecstasy is rare and doesn’t want to let it go

Music is a bit jealous to let me go, but knows its inevitable

But music knows it will forever dwell in my spirit

While silently sharing me with a new love

SongVersations: “Your Touch” By Ralph Tresvant

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/its-goin-down/id2699933In the middle of the of night. I woke up to my favorite artist voice singing in my ear. The sensual peaceful sounds of  Mr. Ralph Tresvant singing “Your Touch”,

“I’ll be waiting for your touch. Nothing’s quite the same as when we touch. Love me with your magic touch. I’ll be right here baby by your side. I’ll be waiting for your touch. Nothing’s quite the same as when we touch.

Love me with your magic touch. Love me with your magic touch. Magic touch. Touch me. Never thought it be so easy to fall in love, but when you smile, I feel the difference in your touch. And loving you is so easy, you stolen my heart. In your eyes make all the difference, in your touch.”

Every time when Ralph says those two words “Touch Me“. That whisper calms my spirit as those words flow throughout my body. I feel his music touching me. I find myself rewinding that part over and over again. Letting those words and the sound of his masculine voice, how angelic, loving and peaceful it is, get infused into my soul and my subconscious.

It feels like ecstasy. It makes me feel like a beautiful woman. I laid there in bed and just took in the music. It was peaceful and relaxing. It was simple. I thought for a moment how nice, it would be to have a lover, that I could reach for in the middle of the night to hold me. To make love to me. Someone to make me feel like a sensual woman.

Someone who I can have the first thing in the morning, before I have breakfast and before I start my day. A sweet endearing kiss on my forehead and warm embrace. Someone who makes me forget about my past pain. Someone who is gentle with my love. Someone to make me feel safe and protected. Someone who can be my peace and I can be their peace.

Listening to this song when he says “loving you is so easy.” Those lyrics remind me of myself and my first love. It was just easy for him to love me and for me to love him. Two simples souls who never pressured each other and just thought to themselves. How can make you happy because I love to see you smile.

Love shouldn’t be difficult. I don’t know why people keep thinking it should be. Maybe because they are used to pain. Someone shouldn’t make it difficult for you to love them. They should make it easy. When it comes to love or being with someone, it’s either you want to be with that person or not. It’s not difficult. But I’m not looking for perfect, I’m looking for honest and real.

As I lay there in bed, the sun begin to rise, I heard the birds singing outside my window, it made me smile and in that moment. I thought I was going to hear that beat drop and hear  “Can you stand the rain” By New Edition.” Classic songs like that always remind me of home. Music is what love sounds and feels like.

As I take a trip down memory lane as a child being at home with my mom. When things used to be so simple and quiet. I find myself craving more and more of it each day. I know that anyone who threatens and disturbs my peace, is not meant for me to love or be around. As I am very sensitive to negative frequencies.

People ask me all the time, why are you single? They don’t get it. I would be a rich woman, as many times as I’ve been asked that, lol. I’m told “you’re so peaceful. You’re so nice.” I don’t understand why you don’t have a man, that’s loving you and giving you everything you want.” Well I say, it’s not really about what I want first.

What good is wanting something, if it’s not coming from someone you want to be with, love or someone who loves you back. It’s about what I need first, my wants will come later. What I want is peace and quiet. What I don’t need and don’t want is someone disturbing my peace of mind. I want someone who is just as quiet and simple as I am.

Someone who appreciates the little and simple things in life. Someone who enjoys being in the moment. I want someone who revels in my peaceful calm spirit as I revel in theirs.  Someone who hears what I don’t say and is thoughtful and kind. Someone who looks at me and in their eyes alone, I can see into their soul and know that they love me.

I want a magical touch, a touch that I can feel the passion and desire emitting, from the depths of their soul to their finger tips, when they touch me and when they kiss me. Someone I can’t wait to crave and breathe in the way I need air. Someone who’s love is untainted by a previous lover.

Someone who allowed their heart and spirit to heal, so they can be open and free to love again. I want someone to love me with their magic touch. I’ll be waiting….. I’m patiently waiting for it. Is it too much to ask for? No…not all 🙂 .

SongVersations: “Never Noticed” By Ralph Tresvant

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/rizz-wa-faire/id157081843“Oh, where did you go?
Why did you leave?
No chance to say goodbye
And let’s be honest

Ever since you went away
Living hasn’t been the same
Missing you and wanting you back here with me

Heaven knows how far I’ll go
I know its not logical to be with you But if I could, I would

Never noticed how much I loved you. Until the day you said goodbye for good. If I knew what I know now my love. I’m just thinking bout it”

Words beautifully sung by Ralph Tresvant. When you listen to these lyrics, it makes you wonder about the person you loved, that suddenly walked out on you and never gave you an answer as to why. It’s hits you when you are alone. You start thinking about it. You ask yourself what happened? What didn’t I see?

Why did you leave? I never got a chance to say good-bye. Why didn’t you talk to me and let me know you were unhappy, or maybe they did and you just didn’t pay attention. There are always signs in a relationship that your significant other, is not happy but are you paying attention?

Sometimes it so easy to get caught up in our careers, that we neglect the one we love. The one that held us down. Material possessions can’t hold us at night. At the end of the day, we want someone to love and hold us and to just be there. To just be a friend.

You start thinking of your long-lost love and your heart aches, for that person to be back in your life. You know that if you could just get a second chance, that you can love them better. That you are changed man or woman. When I hear these lyrics It makes feel like someone’s love was taken for granted.

Maybe this woman just couldn’t deal with his life and how busy he is. Why else would she just pick up and leave without any explanation. Or maybe she fell in love with someone else. Now he’s sitting there missing her, wanting her back in his life. When he says “It was you, It was you.” Maybe he felt that she was always it for him.

That the mistakes he made, by not showing her how much, he loved and cared for her. That if he did maybe she would have stayed had she not felt neglected. Or maybe he loved her to much, gave her everything she wanted and still it wasn’t enough for her. Some times the more you love and give to a person, they take you for granted.

As the song plays it reminds me of the men I’ve dated and not dated. That claim I’m the one that got away. Now they are alone, missing me, wanting me back. They never realized how much they loved me, until I ended it. But when they had me, they took my love for granted. They keep wondering how their life would have turned out, if they just knew how to love woman like me. They want a second chance.

Why is it that when someone walks out of our life, we never notice how much they meant to us while they were in our life? Why does it takes someone absence to appreciated their presence? Some times we really do love that person, but we never notice how much until they are gone. When were alone with our thoughts it hits us.

Damn! I let the best thing I had slip away from me. We start feeling like a fool. The thoughts of the person we miss invaded our heart and spirit. We hear their voice, we want them near and we think, If only I can get a second chance. Life may or may not grant us with a second chance. But in life there are no do overs. We just have to live with the pain.

If we knew what we know now, we wouldn’t have made the mistake in the first place. Everyone we meet that walks in and out of our life. Is there to teach us a lesson, about love. They are there to help us grow and evolve. Hopefully we’ll know better next time, not to make the same mistake twice with a new love. We’ll recognize the rare spirit of love in front of us, next time around.
