You can bet that never gotta sweat that!!

Viewsss!!Viewsss!! 🙂 , no comments but views :-),  no really, it’s a good feeling and this blogging thing is actually enjoyable..Soo…..i’m going to veer off the literature for a bit and go into the music. I recently heard an amazing song and I cannot get over it. I just keep hitting the replay button! I’ll probably keep doing that until I’m sick of it. So i figured I might as well blog about it before the magic wears off….

The song is Sure Thing by Miguel! (link at the bottom of the page..)

It’s a really sweet song about this guy telling this girl how they’re made for each other.How they’ll last even when things get hard…at least that’s what I get from it.,really sweet. What I really like about it is the richness of the song. You never get songs with so much heart in  them anymore. Songs where you can tell the writer/writers actually sat down for a significant amount of time, and really thought about the lyrics. The lyrics are spectacular. He uses metaphors or is it analogies, to describe how he and his girl complement each other. It’s a very original way of writing.It’s really cool that the writers were able to think of all those analogies and make them a song! Mad props to the writers..Here’s a sample of the lyrics..

You be the match
Imma be your fuse
Boom!
Painter baby you
Could be the muse
I’m the reporter baby
You could be the news
Cause your the cigarette
And I’m the smoker
We raise a bet…
Cause you’re tha joker

It’s not just the lyrics, it’s the melody and rhythm and the way he says it. His voice is really great for the song. He makes his voice go up and down and round and back up again :-). There’s an acoustic version of the song too. I usually prefer acoustic versions but the plugged version of this song is amazing! The fact that he looks mixed in race and heritage kinda added to the richness of the whole thing.loll i’m just saying..

It’s very bluesy and makes me think of being in a jazz club in New Orleans when jazz was the ish back then..(My perception of a jazz club in New Orleans is purely based on the movies i’ve watched btw :-p). Anyhu the song sounds like something you could listen to in a jazz club with a cocktail/glass of wine/glass of cranberry juice. (my idea of classy drinks)…

The crazy thing is that the song was leaked in 2009 and this is the first time I’m hearing it! However, he did officially release it this year. It’s a great song and definitely a welcome break from the shallow purely commercial songs that are on today.

If you get a chance..have a listen you will not be disappointed!! If you’ve listened to it and love it, I hope the magic doesn’t wear off anytime soon 🙂
