It’s not #MusicMonday and I have no damn idea why okay, lies, there’s a reason this song is on repeat again after so many years but whatever, that’s none of your business right now but I cannot, cannot stop playing this. The whole beat, the lyrics, I swear it touches your soul. It’s so rare … More “You” – Monifah

You know those really big station wagons? The one where you could hide … More #ThrowbackThursday – “All Around The World” – Lisa Stansfield
