My top two most played iTunes songs really say a lot about my emotions.
Beyonce: I Miss You
Thank you, Frank Ocean, for writing this joint.
I remember listening to this song for the first time and having a dying need to figure out who wrote it with her. Stripping down a song to synths and drums, and then layering Beyonce’s lower and upper registers was such a simplified yet fresh take on that 80’s Genesis sound. Plus, these damn lyrics:
Words don’t ever seem to come out right
But I still mean them, why is that?
It hurts my pride to tell you how I feel
But I still need to, why is that?
I miss you, like everyday
Wanna be with you, but you’re away
I said I miss you, missing you insane
But if I got with you, could it feel the same?
Here’s a tip (that I’m not sure will work): Play this song before you go into an interview to get your mind in a “number one diva in this game” kind of place.
Beyonce: Ex-Factor, Live in Atlantic City (Originally by Lauryn Hill)
It seems like this just happened.
Beyoncé: Love On Top
