Good Friday morning, I will be adding three songs to the GSOTD post and Playlist. Enjoy the music. 

R&B/Pop: Signs (Album Version) (Feat. Missy Elliott) by Beyoncé. "Signs" by Beyoncé featuring Missy Elliot is a song that speaks to the artist's interest in astrology and her exploration of the zodiac signs that line up with her own. The song's intro sets the premise, stating that each sign has its own mode or specific traits while the song's verses explore the different signs that Beyoncé has encountered and how each sign affected her emotions. The chorus highlights that Beyoncé loves all signs in the zodiac with none being better than the other. In the first verse, Beyoncé mentions that she fell in love with a Sagittarius who encompassed traits of two signs, Sagittarius and Gemini. While he was exciting, he also had a flip side. In the second verse, Beyoncé desires a lover who shares similar traits as her sign, Virgo, and can show her love because she was hurt by a Pisces. She also wants someone who is sexy like a Scorpio, yet sensitive like a Cancer. The bridge of the song continues the exploration of various signs, displaying how each sign can possess unique and unexpected traits. The bridge 2, enclosed by both artists Missy and Beyoncé, shows how no matter the zodiac sign, everyone can be loved and appreciated. Overall, the song "Signs" by Beyoncé is an ode to astrology and the various signs of the zodiac. It expresses Beyoncé's interest in the subject while simultaneously celebrating the differences and similarities of each sign. Courtesy of songtell.com. 

Soul/ Blues Soul: I'll Play The Blues For You (Edit) by Albert King. Cream made it popular, but bluesman Albert King originally recorded — though did not write — “Born Under a Bad Sign”, and it is rightfully the song he’s most often associated with. The blues classic was written by Booker T. Jones and William Bell, both of whom were essentially house musicians for Memphis-based soul label Stax Records. Although the Stax stable of artists was mostly soul musicians (notably Otis Redding), the label also took on funk (Isaac Hayes, the Memphis Horns) and the blues, King predominantly. Stax released the career-making Born Under a Bad Sign, on the same-titled album, in 1967. It was King’s first record with the label — but, despite its influence and the power of the single, not his best.

Pop/Alternative/Electronic/UK: You & I (Forever)  by Jessie Ware. Tough Love is the second studio album by English singer Jessie Ware, it was released on October 13th 2014 in the UK, and on the 24th of October it was released in the United States. The album is supported by the singles, Tough Love, Say You Love Me, You & I (Forever), and Champaign Kisses. 

Have a blessed weekend, take care and GOD bless.

In honor of one of musics female greats I will be adding all three songs by the late Tina Turner. 

 

Pop: What's Love Got To Do With It  by Tina Turner. Tina Turner was wary about the fact that the single fit more into the pop genre instead of her typical R&B and rock and roll, even going so far as to call the song “terrible,” according to the 2021 HBO Documentary Tina. In 1993 Angela Bassett and Lawrence Fishburne starred in the movie "What's Love Got To Do With It" a movie that told the story of singer Tina Turner's rise to stardom and how she gained the courage to break free from her abusive husband, Ike Turner.

Pop/ Rock: The Best (2021 Remaster) by Tina Turner. "The Best" is a song by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler from her seventh studio album "Hide Your Heart" (1988) written by Holly Knight and Mike Chapman. Produced by Desmond Child, Tyler's version became a top-10 hit in Norway but was a minor hit elsewhere. In 1989, American singer Tina Turner released a cover version of "The Best" for her seventh studio album, Foreign Affair. It became an international chart hit, reaching Platinum certification in the UK. In 1992, Turner re-recorded the track as a duet with Australian singer Jimmy Barnes. 

Rock/ R&B: Better Be Good To Me by Tina Turner. "Better Be Good to Me" is a song written by Mike Chapman, Holly Knight, and Nicky Chinn, recorded by Tina Turner for her solo record Private Dancer (1984) and released as a single in September 1984. The song was originally recorded and released in 1981 by Spider, a band from New York City that featured co-writer Knight as a member. Turner's version was successful in the United States and peaked at No.5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No.6 on the then-Hot Black Singles charts. At the 27th annual Grammy Awards in 1985, Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female, one of four Grammys awarded to Turner's Private Dancer album at that ceremony. The song was also included on the Miami Vice soundtrack. (Courtesy of Wikipedia). 

Enjoy Tina Turner's top hits. Have a blessed day, take care and GOD bless.

Good Thursday morning, I will be adding three songs to the GSOTD post and Playlist. Enjoy the music. 

Reggae: The Happy Song by Yaksta. Kemaul M. Martin, professionally known as Yaksta, is an upcoming reggae and dancehall recording artist and songwriter from St. Mary, Jamaica. Growing up under the care of his single mother and sisters in an area categorized by many as a “ghetto” or “garrison”, life has never been easy for Yaksta. Rather than succumb to a life of violence and crime – the fate of many of his peers, Yaksta followed his passion for music. His drive to perform on the global stage has been admired by many. From his early childhood, he spent his formative years working on music projects and focused on reggae and dancehall culture as opposed to his studies. After several stints in hospitality at popular Jamaican beach resorts and running his own business selling clothes as a way to make ends meet, Yaksta decided a full-time life in music was the only path for him. “I am music incarnate and I’ve given up on avoiding my destiny”, he vows enthusiastically.

Pop: Die A Happy Man by Nelly. The song was co-written by Country singer Thomas Rhett it was released on September 28th, 2015. "Die A Happy Man" was covered by American Rapper artist Nelly in 2016 and released as a single on February 5th by Records and Epic Records. Nelly's version draws interest from hip-hop and dance music.

Country: When I'm With You by Chris Stapelton. In the album Starting Over Chris states. "There’s a lot on this record that I’m finding out, as I’m starting to talk about it a bit, was very reactionary and in the moment. On previous records, there was songwriting that probably took place in a working songwriter vacuum, that sat around for several years and found a purpose when it was time to make a record. This project is much more about my current day-to-day life." When I'm With You is the fourth song on Chris's album Starting Over.

Have a great Thursday, take care, and GOD bless.

Good Friday morning, and welcome to GSOTD. I will be adding three songs to today's post and Playlist. The first two songs are by the same artist David Kushner, he only has 12 songs in Pandora's library, but I think you'll agree the two songs are not just worth listening to but collecting for your own personal Playlist as well. Enjoy the music. 

Pop/Singer-songwriter: Daylight  by David Kushner. "Daylight" is a song by American singer-songwriter David Kushner. Kushner wrote the song with Hayden Robert Hubers, Jeremy Fedryk, and Josh Bruce Williams. The song was released back on April 14th of this year. 

Pop/Singer-songwriter: Burn by David Kushner. In an interview with Unpublished David states My song “Burn” is actually about my girlfriend's ex, so like lowkey a diss track. Okay. He was like a diagnosed narcissist and that caused a lot of issues in their relationship. I basically internalized my girlfriend’s experience with her ex in that one.

Alternative/Indie/Pop/Electropop: Never Felt So Alone  by Labrinth. "Never Felt So Alone" is a song by British singer-songwriter Labrinth which features uncredited vocals from American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish.

Have a great day, and a blessed weekend, take care and GOD bless.

Good Friday morning dear friend, and welcome back to GSOTD... Yes, it has been long overdue...I updated the GSOTD playlist earlier this morning the playlist lost nearly 20 songs due to the changes in the Pandora library. I will be adding three songs to the playlist this morning. I hope you enjoy the music.

Blues Rock/Pop Rock/Alternative RockMan Like That by Gin Wigmore. Virginia Claire Wigmore is a New Zealand singer and songwriter. Featured on the Smashproof single "Brother" in 2009, Wigmore went on to release five albums Holy Smoke, Gravel & Wine, Blood to Bone, and Ivory, with the first three having been chart-toppers on the New Zealand Albums Chart. She is known for her high-pitched and raspy voice.

Pop/Blue-eyed Soul: Who Can You Trust by Ivy Levan. The song is about a woman who is not trustworthy but she knows how to manipulate people. She talks about how love is just a way to get what you want and how she can feed you lies better than anyone else. Even though she is not a good person, she believes that no one else can be trusted either, so she justifies her actions. The chorus repeats the question of who else can you trust, emphasizing the idea that no one is reliable. Who Can You Trust is also the opening theme song for the Comedy Film Spy. 

Southern Rock/Blues Rock/Folk Rock: Sometimes by Larkin Poe  Larkin Poe is an American roots rock band led by sisters Rebecca Lovell and Megan Lovell. The band originated in north Georgia and is currently based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Good Wednesday morning, and welcome to GSOTD, I will be adding three songs to today's post and Playlist. Enjoy the music.

Adult Alternative Pop/Rock, Contemporary Singer/Songwriter, Roots Rock: Mother Road by Grace Potter. Mother Road is the fifth solo studio album by American musician Grace Potter, released through Fantasy Records on August 18, 2023. As with Potter's previous two solo albums, it was produced by her husband Eric Valentine.

 Requiem/ a cappella/Opera:  Pie Jesu Live by Malakai Bayoh. Malakai had the judges on their feet as he belted out Pie Jesu, with the panel praising it as ‘heavenly’. The teen – who fell in love with singing when he was seven, after joining a choir – impressed the judges so much that he only went and got a golden buzzer!  Following his stunning audition, Simon Cowell, 63, told him that there was ‘only one word’ to describe his performance… and that word was ‘golden’. The X Factor creator didn’t hesitate to press the special buzzer, sending Malakai straight through to the live shows. And with Malakai’s mum and sister in tears in the audience, they weren’t the only ones overcome with emotion, as new judge Bruno Tonioli, 67, wept all the way through. The teen – who fell in love with singing when he was seven, after joining a choir – impressed the judges so much that he only went and got a golden buzzer! Following his stunning audition, Simon Cowell, 63, told him that there was ‘only one word’ to describe his performance… and that word was ‘golden’.

(Translation meaning Merciful Jesus)

Phil Wickham) By Casting Crowns. "Praise You In This Storm" is a song recorded by contemporary Christian music band Casting Crowns, released by Beach Street and Reunion Records.

Good Tuesday afternoon, welcome to GSOTD (clean), I will be adding three songs to today's post and Playlist. Enjoy the music.

Pop/Folk/Singer-songwriter/Rock: Nothing But Love by Jewel.  Freewheelin' Woman is the thirteenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Jewel, released on April 15, 2022, via her label, Words Matter Media. It is Jewel's first album in seven years, following 2015's Picking Up the Pieces. The album was co-produced by Jewel and Butch Walker and was developed with the intention for Jewel to create music that she felt connected to and excited about rather than creating to meet expectations. Lyrically, the album touches on themes of independence, hope, womanhood, and heartbreak. 

Pop/Rock/Alternative Pop/Alternative Rock/Pop-Rock: Losing The Plot by Alanis Morissette. In 2019, Morissette left Los Angeles with her husband and children for Northern California, where she moved to be closer to her best friends and redwood forests. She hasn't looked back since. That's because moving was about more than just Morissette's love for skiing on Lake Tahoe. That's the story she tells intimately in "Losing The Plot." Beyond the song's universal questions, it also tells us the very personal journey of a middle-aged rock-pop star struggling in an industry that idolizes women ages 17 to 29 and gives older women reductive views. As she told Vogue, after reaching middle age, Morissette became "super disenfranchised" with the city. 

Ballad: What Am I Doing Here by Dido. Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O'Malley Armstrong, known professionally as Dido. "What Am I Doing Here" by Dido is a poignant and introspective song that delves into themes of longing, missed opportunities, and the search for true connection. The artist explores the feelings of emptiness and displacement that arise from being physically present but emotionally distant from someone you deeply care about. 

Have a great Tuesday, take care and GOD bless...

Singer-songwriter/Acoustic Guitar: I'm Ready by Tracy Chapman. The song "I'm Ready" features the line "I'm ready" multiple times, which was taken from the popular children's TV show, 'Spongebob Squarepants', and is said by Spongebob himself. The song is about falling in love, and the singers are coming off in such an outspoken way because they are lonely and crave a significant other yet have no one to hold on to.

Rock: What's The World Coming To by Fleetwood Mac. At its core, “What’s the World Coming To” reflects on the state of the world and the uncertainties that surround us. The lyrics delve into the challenges and changes occurring in society, questioning the moral and ethical fabric of the world. The song poses introspective questions about the direction humanity is heading, highlighting the struggles and conflicts prevalent in our modern times. Fleetwood Mac expresses concern about the degradation of values and the impact it has on individuals and society as a whole.

Rock/Country Rock/Pop-Rock/ Hard Rock: All She Wants To Do Is Dance by Don Henley. "All She Wants to Do Is Dance" is a song written by Danny Kortchmar and performed by Don Henley, co-lead vocalist and drummer for Eagles. It was released as the second single from Henley's second studio solo album, Building the Perfect Beast  (1984), and was Henley's sixth solo single overall. It was one of Henley's most commercially successful singles, peaking at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, and also became his third song to top the Top Rock Tracks chart.
