An eighties rapper today, who was very desperate for love, I think. Not only the song is looking for love, his name, too. It means: Ladies Love Cool James. Yeah, bit too, I think. However, his song in 1987 helped him to become one of the biggest stars in hip hop, and he made some nice songs. Thereby, he did some collaborate with Shalamar and Jennifer Lopez, so I think he doesn’t need love anymore. He gets enough from adoring women. However, it was his debute hit, so in the time, he needed it. Enjoy
L.L. Cool J- I Need Love
Here comes a statement: I’m not a big fan of rap songs. The rap songs I like are from the eighties, when rap was just getting started. These were songs like the Holiday Rap (MC Miker G & Deejay Sven) and Rapper’s Delight (The Sugarhill Gang). However, this particular song is a song which I think is quite good. It’s not the screamed texts of some rappers, not a text which is insulting, just a song which is fresh, a new sound in rap. If it all would be like this, things would be much better! I think this artist, PW, has got a future with some hits, perhaps…
PW- Here With You
Yes, more classics on their way. Again nineties, and this time made by a duo. One of the two is Will Smith, the Fresh Prince.
I did not know this until I was looking for the greatest hits of Will Smith (I wanted a CD with Miami, Gettin’ Jiggy With It, etc.), and there were songs of DJ Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince on the CD!
What? That’s strange, I thought. Well, no, apparently not.
But okay, they have scored a neat 16th place in the Summer Song Of The Day Top 20, with their song Summertime. A real big summer hit!
Number 16: DJ Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince- Summertime
With less than a week to go before it’s Christmas, I will today promote a Christmas song with a funny clip.
But first: U Can’t Touch This! I’ve been looking up some information on the song, and where is it? Here! U Can’t Touch This promotes MC Hammer as a rapper.
The whole song is based on a sample of Rick James’ Super Freak, but the lyrics are written by MC Hammer. He says that he’s magic, and that he can’t touch Rick James in the lyrics.
But, because of this, it is such a perfect song! It was a number one hit for MC Hammer and he won a Grammy with it.
Okay, enough about the song of yesterday, let’s move on to the song of today.
It’s actually a song for charity, for Comic Relief. The name of the singers are a parody on a sister act, and the original was recorded in 1958 by Brenda Lee.
Don’t know it yet? Here’s the answer:
Mel (Smith) & Kim (Wilde) with Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree!
Tomorrow two new songs, and after that we are going to have some nice Christmas songs…
