Nostalgic… what does this word mean? I asked my friend, GOOGLE, and she told me the following:
experiencing or exhibiting nostalgia, a sentimental or wistful yearning for the happiness felt in a former time, place or situation.
People who knew me back in my high school days, always said I had an attitude problem. Especially the girls. Why? I wasn’t one with many friends, especially not girls. Don’t ask me why, but I don’t have many female friends. Would I like to change that? Sure! But only if the women aren’t exhausting. When us women get together, it can go left really, really fast.
Anyway, I’ve been kind of nostalgic the past couple of days.
I miss good music. Maybe I’m getting old (or am extremely old-fashioned), but I think the world’s getting sadder and sadder. Anyone and everyone wants to become an overnight celebrity. Like it’s some kind of kool-aid that’s being sold somewhere by someone, some puppet master. Everyone is an IG model, rapper, some rapper or ball player’s baby mama, or what-have-you. It’s exhausting. Putting out music is easier than ever before.
People will do a whole lot of strange for a chunk of change.
Since I’ve been nostalgic, I’ve been listening to music from the eighties, nineties and early 2000s. I love doing this while traveling from Jimei to Xiamen island for work (or to meet friends). Well, almost every single time I have some time to spare. Music is a very important part of my life.
Below is a list of songs I listen to when I’m very nostalgic… missing the good music from my childhood and all those good memories.
- Cold Rock A Party – MC Lyte, Missy Elliot and Puff Daddy (P. Diddy… whatever)
2. Every Little Thing I Do – Soul 4 Real
3. Cry For You – Jodeci
This song brings back GREAT memories! Boomboxes were THE SHIT, then came the CD player. My aunties were one of the first in my family to own one.
4. Poison – Bell Biv DeVoe
Another great memory! My uncle, he’s 13 years my senior, he taught me the running man. He was and still is an awesome dancer. Now, for the last one… (but not the last one, really. I just don’t want to bore you).
5. Return of the Mack – Mark Morrison
