Eric B & Rakim, I Know You Got Soul

This song has been voted the 23rd best Hip Hop song of all time by Rolling Stone magazine and came in at number 386 in the same publication’s 500 best songs of all time.  

Both of these facts make me think I am failing to appreciate something.  I find the song a perfectly pleasant listening experience.  But I can’t deny that the sampled groove gets a toe tapping, Rakim is laconically compelling and I like the combination of scratching and “You Got Its” towards the end.

The single reached number 13 in March 1988.

Happy Sunday! Ours was a relaxing and easy week-end on this side of the blogosphere, plus or minus some loud kids’ screaming and object destructions here and there…As we’re tentatively trying to sip on our coffees with a semblance of calm and quiet, here are the news we’re reading and re-reading, and…

So my question is, how did music go to good and badass for like 50 years, and today, they don’t even use real instruments, I respect what others listen to, but today’s music sounds bad as fuck. Like we went from The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Mötley Crüe, Guns N Roses, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and now what the fuck even

how does it feel, how does it feel to be on your own?
with no direction home, like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone?
you never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns when they all come down and did tricks for you.
you never understood that it ain’t no good, you shouldn’t let other people get your kicks for you. you used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat. ain’t it hard when you discover that? he really wasn’t where it’s at, after he took from you everything he could steal.

Using only song names from 1 artist cleverly answer these questions; pass it on to 15 people.

“When it comes to classic rock, nobody has done it bigger or better than Led Zeppelin. Sure we could all rattle off a list of bands that have stood the test of time, but you’d be hard pressed to name a group as iconic as this one. Beginning in the late ’60s under the name The New Yardbirds, the band quickly morphed into the musical powerhouse we know and love today, churning out anthems that still make us raise our lighters into the air. During the decade or so they were active, Led Zeppelin created the standards (and broke a lot of the rules) of modern music, setting the bar for future groups in rock-and-roll, heavy metal, and beyond.

Widely considered one of the most successful bands in history, it’s estimated the group’s record sales are somewhere around 300 million albums worldwide. Each of their nine studio albums placed on the Billboard Top 10 and six reached the #1 spot. Rolling Stone has referred to Jimmy Page as “the pontiff of power riffing” and his legendary solo from “Stairway to Heaven” is commonly lauded as the greatest guitar solo of all time.

Every self-respecting audiophile owns at least one Led Zeppelin record, but so does your next door neighbor and probably a few of your former elementary school teachers as well. That’s the beauty of the group, they’re more than just musicians: They’re legends. Let’s be real, just about any Led Zeppelin song that’s playing on your record player is, at least for that moment, the greatest song you’ve ever heard. “ - Words by Amanda Weatherford

Your Defense of Jackie is Weak (A response to Jessica Valenti)

Here’s a thing to know about Puritan Feminists – they will never, ever admit when they’re wrong.  If they’re shown to be wrong, without any form of doubt, then they just double-down on how right they are.  These people truly are the liberal equivalent of the Tea Party.  The progressive-left is the new tea party-right, and nowhere has it been so spectacularly on display than with the events…
