Picks Of The Week #11

Lyrics Of The Week

Just listened back to this old song, so I decided to post the lyrics here for you guys to read, it’s kinda deep. Still I wonder why Lauryn never made a second solo album after the huge success of the debut. Looking forward to The Fugees reunion album.

Everything Is Everything
Lauryn Hill

Everything is everything
What is meant to be, will be
After winter, must come spring
Change, it comes eventually
Change, it comes eventually

I wrote these words for everyone
Who struggles in their youth
Who won’t accept deception
Instead of what is truth
It seems we lose the game,
Before we even start to play
Who made these rules? We’re so confused
Easily led astray
Let me tell ya that
Everything is everything
Everything is everythingAfter winter, must come spring
Everything is everything

I philosophy
Possibly speak tongues
Beat drum, abyssinian, street baptist
Rap this in fine linen
From the beginning
My practice extending across the atlas
I begat this
Flippin’ in the ghetto on a dirty mattress
You can’t match this rapper / actress
More powerful than two cleopatras
Bomb graffiti on the tomb of nefertiti
Mcs ain’t ready to take it to the serengeti
My rhymes is heavy like the mind of sister Betty
L. Boogie spars with stars and constellations
Then came down for a little conversation
Adjacent to the king, fear no human being
Roll with cherubims to nassau coliseum
Now hear this mixture
Where hip hop meets scripture
Develop a negative into a positive picture

Now, everything is everything
What is meant to be, will be
After winter, must come spring
Change, it comes eventually

Sometimes it seems
We’ll touch that dream
But things come slow or not at all
And the ones on top, won’t make it stop
So convinced that they might fall
Let’s love ourselves then we can’t fail
To make a better situation
Tomorrow, our seeds will grow
All we need is dedication

Let me tell ya that,
Everything is everything
Everything is everything
After winter, must come spring
Everything is everything

Everything is everything

What is meant to be, will be
After winter, must come spring
Change, it comes eventually

Morningwood/ Nth Degree

I was hearing so much buzz about this New York band, so I tried a few of their songs and I made myself a fan now. Indie rock never sounds this danceable before. The first time I heard this feel-good song, I immediately liked it so much that I just kept hitting the repeat button. If you haven’t, you must check this song out, M-O, M-O-R, M-O-R-N-I-N-G, W-O-O-D. (And if you turn out to love this band, join their fan community! The link is right beside!)

Flashback

Jimmy Eat World (or Mandy Moore)/ Crush

This song spoke this all-time issue so sincerely and truthfully that you can relate to this real much if you’re having a crush on someone. Plus, there are 2 versions of the song to double, the rough, rocking version of Jimmy Eat World and the candy sweet bubblegum pop cover of Mandy Moore.

Music Video Of The Week

Madonna/ Sorry

This video is like the sequel to ‘Hung Up’, so yeah, more 80s juices. The same dancer cast, a new purple corseted leotard, new groovy dance moves, and rollerskating. It’s just Madonna doing her thing, making soccer moms out feel so jealous.

Contest Of The Week
