Musical Scrapbook Idea?

It's been a very long time since I posted to this blog, but I felt an OVERWHELMING urge to do so today. Why? Because music has graced my soul today.

While music THIS GOOD always brings me back to the painful reality that I so badly MISS being a part of the music industry; it's also SO GOOD that it is too good not to LOVE "truly. madly. and deeply (savage garden)!

Today - music speaks to me simply by being there - in the background, fueling my work and providing inspiration. I will someday piece together a scrapbook on the music that touches me most...and in that scrapbook it would include thoughtful tributes to artists like:

  1. Lauryn Hill
  2. Corine Bailey Ray
  3. John Mayer
  4. Colbie Caillat
  5. Jagged Edge
  6. Jodeci
  7. Craig David
  8. Lilly Allen
  9. Mariah Carey
  10. India Arie
and many more...

I am TOUCHED to the absolute core by all of these artists. From their soulful voices to their lyrics, music production and over all uniqueness...all it takes is the first BEAT or the right NOTE in their voices to take me over the edge.

For this I am forever grateful. My musical scrapbook will be entitled, GOOD LUV (which is the title of one the best Jodeci songs EVER made)! This scrapbook would emphasize exactly what it is about each of them - or the most favored songs they sing...and it would be a constant reminder to me EVERY TIME I opened it - what it feels like to FEEL something so good that you can feel it in the deepest corners of your soul!

For now (without the time or patience to create this scrapbook album)...I wish to simply thank you publicly Colbie Caillat for creating Bubbly. There is something about that song that takes me WELL BEYOND THE EDGE! Its such an amazing song and it definitely takes hold of my soul!

Feeling this love of music on a SOUL level is what GOOD LUV is all about!
