September ’15 Weekender

Well well…here is my selection for this month’s weekender after a long long time.

Well…as always, I put up five videos / tracks that I have been playing alot in a month. This list may or may not be influenced by my kids. Reason being, we always have an hour every other day where hubby and I put on music and just have a jam session.

So here goes…

WizKid – Ojuelegba

AliKiba – Mwana

Liquideep – Still

Jess Glynne – Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself

Kendrick Lamar – Alright (This is the best track and video for me this year ❤️)

 

 

Feb. ’12 Weekender

Well….February already has come and gone. With this month’s selection of music I have laughed and cried…….

So, here goes

Dj Cleo – Facebook This one made me laugh.

The Bullitts – Supercool If this one doesn’t make you laugh, then I don’t know what will. “Stop filming me! Its Rosario Dawson….keep filming!” This has got to be the funniest video I have seen in ages. And the track is not so bad.

YOme – Oh My (Audio Only) This reminds me of the era of 90’s ‘Jazzy’ Hip Hop. Loved it from the moment I heard it.

Madtraxx – Ita Waiter The video is just creative. Made me laugh…..then it made me sad as this is how many people are anyway when they go out.

Last, but not least…..

February saw the world of music lose another great STAR/DIVA/TALENT – Whitney Houston. Such a great loss….she will be missed. R.I.P. Whitney.

This has got to be one of my favourites songs by her…..

Whitney Houston – I Learn From The Best

And as far as tributes go……this one did it for me. Chic has mad talent……

Shelea Frazier’s Tribute to Whitney Houston

 

 

 

August ’11 Weekender

The Notting Hill Carnival season is here again. I was so sure that it would be cancelled following the riots that marred London earlier this month. In my opinion, I am glad it wasn’t cancelled as a sign of community spirit.

So this month’s weekender will be carnival themed.

WCK – Met Veye (Oldie, but goodie)

Patra – Queen of the Pack

Beenie Man – Let’s Go

Kes The Band – Wotless

Bob Marley – Iron Lion Zion

Simply Red – Ghetto Girl (I have loved this track for eons.)

Jamesy P – Nookie

Bonus track

Soca Carnival Medley (to get you in the carnival mood – ENJOY!)

Check out this album on iTunes for more Notting Hill Carnival tunes.

April ’11 Weekender

Katy B – Broken Record

LMFAO – Party Rock Anthem ft. Lauren Bennett, GoonRock (This is one video that makes me laugh and dance at the same time.)

Sauti Sol – Coming Home (*tears* have a box of tissue nearby as you watch this video. Lovely tune too)

Jessie J feat. B.o.B – Price Tag

Tiësto vs. Diplo feat. Busta Rhymes – C’Mon (Catch ‘Em By Surprise)

Kaysha – On Est Ensemble (If there is one artist that made me love Zouk/Coupé Décalé….)

Happy Labour Day peoples!

March ’11 Weekender

So….what tunes have got me pumping this month…….!

Let us see……

K.I.G. – Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes (never have you heard a nursery rhyme be so funky)

Adele – Someone Like You (the lyrics are just so powerful. Just love this track.)

Rihanna – What’s My Name? (I am not a Ri-Ri fan, but there is something about this song that I can’t get enough of.)

Dela – Ulivyo (can we get more music like this from the motherland – PLEASE!)

Uche – My God is Good (Everything Double Double) I really love this gospel track, esp. the swahili bit.
