The "Rules" of Playlist Thursday:
Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old.
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever floats yer boat.
And whatever you do, don't forget to head over to Pavement Runner's blog to check out the other participants posts!
Artist: L.L. Cool J
Notable: Who doesn't love L.L.? You cannot have a hip hop playlist without this man on it. This song was on my running playlist for ages. I think I removed it late in 2011. I think it might be time for a re-introduction.
Quotable: "All these emotions flowing inside the club, do you really wanna thug or do ya want love?"
Title: Inner Ninja featuring David Myles
Notable: Gotta be honest, I'm not up on much new hip hop music, but that's what I love about Playlist Thursday, it gives me the opportunity to check out music I might not normally listen to. I spent a good chunk of time perusing some new releases on iTunes and as soon as I heard this, I thought oh yeah, I dig it, so, onto my playlist it went.
Quotable: "I read the rules before I broke 'em, I broke the chains before they choked me out"
Something to Consider #1
Notable: I flipping loved this song when it came out. I had it on my spinning playlist and I'd often hit repeat and do a little bike dancing. And he's a Canuck. Go Canada!
Quotable: "Took a trip on a bus that didn't know, met a girl sellin' drinks at the disco said, "Truth comes back when you let it go" seems complicated cause it's really so simple"
Something to Consider #2
Artist: Jay Z vs. The Beatles (Danger Mouse mash up)
Notable: The Beatles were my favourite band when I was a kid and I still love them to this day. Never in a million years would I have thought that I'd like a mash up of their music with Jay Z but I gotta say, it works.
Quotable: "So for one last time I need y'all to roar, now what the hell are you waiting for, after me there shall be no more".
Anything on here that you'd add to your playlist?
