tunes for commuting

no one listens to whole albums any more. well it seems like that way now. when my iphone got stolen i lost not only a phone, camera and internet by my portable music too. it sucked coz i loved walking around london by my self with my headphones in. not until recently did i remember my ipad could be used for music too. duh. so now my morning commute to work is a playlist of these 4 albums and i'm yet to get bored from them.

 i love this album. it and she are getting a lot of mix reviews but there is no doubt that she has stirred things up in the music biz. some of these tracks remind me of chris issak, yeah i dunno. i do know that this is one of those albums that i'll be playing later on when i'm older with kids and it'll remind them of me, like sade does for me and my mum. i'm totes addicted to this one and can not wait to see her live at hackney weekend. just wonder if she will be good live and have better stage presence than that she had on snl.
 went and saw this movie at the cinemas and it kinda blew me. it just made me want to go to a house party and get loose. it also reminded me of all those house parties i went to back in high school. the ones i went to never got to this kinda level but the soundtracks were a little similar. i defs heard tipsy by j-kwon whilst drinking either red bears or smirnoff blacks. this soundtrack has some good mixes on it, like steve aoki's mix of kid cudi's pursuit of happiness, a total party starter for the dames. and some old classics like the next episode. good good party music to get the people going.
 i downloaded this coz of all the hype and it paid off. jack white has one of those voices and plays the guitar like a mother bitch. plus he is one of those music genius. they're kinda rare now days and he hits the nail on the head with each track. topshop plays the same music for about 3 months, well i dont think it changed much while i was working there. one of the songs that i ended up learning all the words to and now knowing who it was, was love interruption. now even after hearing it 6-10 times a day i dont get sick of it. i'm glad though i've got the full album to listen to.
this is just one of those best albums ever. ever! it's forever going to remind me of my london time and the dames. i must thank amber jean for introducing and playing this one heaps before i downloaded, without her constant drive to find good music i wouldnt know this whole album. and all the tracks are as good as the last with the top number 1 track, ni**as in paris. holy mother you need to check out the film clip and see the crispness of it all. jay z is a living legend and kanye did need to remind us all that he does know his music.
