Throwback Thursday | “Clint Eastwood” – Gorillaz

Gorillaz is an interesting band because I have no clue what they look like in real life. And this song is a classic!

You have this super odd, mellow, emo-esque band adding this hard-raspy rapper over a beat that sounds like it’s soaked in sorrow and you come out with a masterpiece.

“I’m useless, but not for long.”

The thing that draws me in about this song is the fact that he is singing about being so happy and having sunshine in a bag, but yet, he sounds so depressed. Weird.

According to RapGenius.com there a deeper meaning behind the song that you all should check out.

My opinion on it: it’s like when someone KNOWS you’re feeling some type of way, but they still ask “how are you?” and you respond with “I’m fine.” This song is like that moment.

Anywaydoe.

Enjoy this Throwback as will I!

Throwback Thursday | “Everything is Everything”

“Adjacent to the King; fear no human being.”

Ya’ll can say what you want about Lauryn Hill and her legal troubles but there is no way you can deny how talented of an artist this woman is. How do I still know nearly every lyric of “Killing Me Softly” and “Ex-Factor” when I could not have been older than ten years old when the songs released? I do not know. Lauryn Hill’s music is timeless. The “Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” still sounds brand new – it will never get old.

I wrote these words for everyone
Who struggles in their youth
Who won’t accept deception
Instead of what is truth

The song I have chosen today is Lauryn Hill’s “Everything is Everything”. This song is the anthem of two simple words: move on. No matter what you’re going through you have to move on because time will not wait for you. After winter must come spring. Turn your negative thoughts into positive ones and move forward with your life.
