folks don’t realize how bad they can hurt you,
but that hurt creates the best records.
every artist needs that pain to create magic.
i like to consider myself an artist.
the foxhole is a place where i can release that hurt for the world to read.
someone out there always benefits from it and we end up relating on a higher level.
i listened to an album today that nearly had me in tears.
i wasn’t sent into a depression,
but it made me connect with the emotions that was put into the record.
this is what i listened to…
“bitter” from meshell ndegeocello.
this is one of my all time favorite songs:
it’s funny how i loved the song before,
but after going through something similar,
it’s like she is speaking my situation/hurt in the lyrics.
that’s the part that makes me cry.
“you made a fool of me…
tell me why…”
if i was putting together my life soundtrack,
it would be one of the songs on it.
i first heard it on “love and basketball”:
…and i was instantly hypnotized.
sad songs tend to put me in a trance of peace.
i never heard this album before,
but i decided to check it out due to the “she’s gotta have it” playlist.
the beauty of streaming music.
i love it so.
folks can’t relate to things that they never experienced.
some of our favorite songs and albums are birthed because our experiences.
i wanted to share this album with the foxhole today.
check it out!
