music makes the people come together - yeeaahhh!

This morning was one of those where I couldn't get a grasp on why exactly I should get out of bed. I was up late, and I'm a girl that needs her beauty sleep - trust. I strongly dislike mornings, and find that sounds from my throat don't typically see the light of day till a good 2 hours post-awakening. So, I reluctantly began my day hoping no one would speak to me, and God-forbid make eye-contact 'cause I always feel obligated to offer a big neighborly smile. (Yeah, I'm one of those annoying people.) And so, just when I started really feeling sorry for myself that it was 7am and I was in a car - not a bed, it happened.
'Crazy in love' by Beyonce came on the radio. You really can't fight the funk, you know? Never fails - rhythm is indeed GONNA get'cha - thank you Gloria Estefan. I have about 5 jams that no matter where I am, what I'm doing and with who - I will have to instantly excuse myself and shake what my Mama gave me. And how can you be in a bad mood when you're droppin it like it's hot? You simply can't. So I decided instead of my usual $5 Starbucks, I'm gonna keep the following songs handy for mornings such as this one. I'll be too busy getting 'low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low' to care about the ungodly hour.

My Top Ten Drop-Everything-Jams:

#10 Tie. 'Toxic' by Britney Spears and 'Music' by Madonna.
Say what you will, but Brit-Brit can put out a jam every now and again. Oh, and for a bonus treat check out Tristan Prettyman's acoustic cover of the song. It's beautiful.
And you know - Madonna will always be a go-to-girl for a good dance work out. Can't hate on that.

#9. ' Nuthin' but a G thang' by Dre & Snoop
I am sorry, but if you were alive in the 90's there is NO WAY you didn't raise one hand in the air and drink beer out of a paper bag when this song came on.

#8 'If I ruled the world' by Nas
I heard this the other day in the car and almost had to pull over so that I could properly get my groove on.

#7 'Juicy' by B.I.G
Memories. Whew!

#6 'C.R.E.A.M' by Wu Tang
I'm straight up in love with Method Man.

#5. 'Family Affair' by Mary J. Blige
Did you ever see Undercover Brother? Chris Kattan dancing to this song is the funniest thing I've ever seen. I feel him though - you HAVE to dance!

#4. 'Low' by Flo Rida ft. T. Pain
Don't let me be in a club when this comes on. EMBARRASSING!

#3. 'It's All About the Benjamins' remix by Puff Daddy & The Family
"Throw a hex on a whole family!" This was Kim before she morphed into LaToya Jackson. Poor thing. SMH

#2. 'Don't stop till you get enough' by Michael Jackson
I wish Mike would come back. I can't think of a single artist that has more 'Drop everything jams' than him. Now I'm sad and wanna get back in bed... :(

#1. 'Crazy in Love' by Beyonce ft. Jay Z
"Uh oh, uh oh"... okay things are better. Thanks B!
