Scream- Michael and Janet Jackson December 10, 2012



Top 5 Reasons I love this video: 
5. The black bubble shirts… I remember always wanting a bubble shirt in middle school and never getting one. So I vicariously live through this video how cool I would have been back then if I had one.
4. The brotherly and sisterly love and sibling rivalry!! GO JACKSONS!! Peep 2:09!
3. The black-n-white futuristic space theme!
2. Great example of catharsis being effective especially when expressed through a creative medium!!
1. Dance breakdown at 3:18!!!

Didn’t Cha Know- Erykah Badu November 3, 2012

Once again, another of my all time favorite artists. Erykah is real and eccentric. This song and video is simply perfect! It’s been many times I thought where in the world is all the time or I must have made a wrong turn somewhere. Seriously, when I come to a point where I need to sit and think about where my life is going this song helps me to do so. It’s been even more crucial as I make different life transitions.

 

In the Closet- Michael Jackson October 25, 2012

King of Pop… R.I.P. MJ.

I used to jam so hard to this song when I was little– even though I didn’t really understand what this song was about. The video is amazing– the sepia, the dancing, Naomi Campbell, the intimacy. I think MJ was sexy in this video. It’s definitely refreshing to be able to watch sexiness that isn’t the men with shirts off, 6 packs glistening, licking lips, surrounded by numerous females —-I digress! My point is this is classic sex to me.

PS-I find it funny that this video was banned in South Africa because it was too sexually provocative.

 

The Fact Is (I Need You)- Jill Scott September 28, 2012

Jill Scott is by far one of my favorite artists. I can listen to all 4 of her studio albums straight through and relate to almost every emotion she sings about. I have always loved this song. BUT NOW I completely appreciate this song because I’m graduating Rice University with a Bioengineering, B.S., I’m smart, I’m beautiful, I’m resilient, self-sufficient, confident… I guess I’m what people would consider independent. However, I know the next time I fall in love, my man will appreciate that I’m all these things BUT know that I need him and love him at the same time too.
