Once in a while, certain songs come along that you can’t help obsessing over. I don’t mean obsessing in the ‘crazy ex partner won’t accept the fact that you’re not together anymore’ sense – it’s the good kind where you hear a track and something in that song resonates within you. I mean, you play it, then start nodding your head and you feel it – I mean really feel it.
After the track finishes, you go about your day doing your thing, but then that track comes back on through your playlist and the whole world stops again for the next 3-4 mins while you’re in that trance. It’s happened to me a few times in my life…okay, maybe more than a few but it never really stopped to think about it. Is there something deeper about these songs? Is it just the beat, the melody or the culmination of it all that makes us go, for lack of a better word, crazy?
So here’s a bunch of songs that has, for some reason, jumped out and grabbed me (in no particular order):
A Milli – Lil’ Wayne
Whoop That Trick – Deejay (Terrence Howard from the Hustle & Flow soundtrack)
Juicy – The Notorious B.I.G.
Dead Wrong – The Notorious B.I.G.
Party Up – DMX
