10 Songs: Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Supa Dupa

1 – The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) – Missy Elliott – This song echoes down modern hip hop, it is almost as important as RZA’s backing tracks on Enter and when you listen to M.I.A., those clipped off beats were born here. Plus “beep, who’s got the keys to the jeep’ is iconic – A+

2 – Really Love – D’Angelo – Apparently, she loves D’Angelo but he is a maniac stalker – A-

3 – Unbelievable – Bettye Lavette – She has noted how she likes tossing Dylan songs because of the words, it’s like singing rap or something, easy to trip over em. She doesn’t but she could – B+

4 – Work It – Promo – Missy Elliott – These half beats are fabulous, very fun, very cool – B+

5 – Functional Alcoholic – Emilyn Brodsky – Ukulele based singalong to drinking till you fall down – B+

6 – The Cookbook – Missy Elliott – From 2005 and the big difference is how adventurous the track is, the notes go up and down the scale are the oddest little hook – B+

7- Ain’t That Easy – D’Angelo – It’s like a signature, beats, off key piano,double, triple tracked vocals and we are off – B+

8 – Get Ur Freak On – Missy Elliott – This track sounds like it belongs on The Black Album (that’ a compliment) – A

9 – Complicated – Bettye Lavette –Best song on the new album, is like Jagger with a better voice but a killer hangover – A

10 – The Charade – D’Angelo – Not crazy about this one at first but it revs up nicely– B
