What My World's Like

What My World Sounds Like: new (to me)


Just a few words. Really, names. Osunlade. Damien Yazz. B.o.B.

Osunlade almost always feels good, if not great.  “The Day We Met for Coffee” was one of the first draws. I had to have listened to that song on repeat for 2 hours that day.

Then I heard this…

Osunlade – “Flow”


What My World Sounds Like: “Tightrope”


Perpetual forward movement. “Whether you’re high or low, you gotta tip on the tightrope.” Stay on your square. 🙂

Janelle Monae – “Tightrope”

What My World Sounds Like: “Come Alive (War of Roses)”



Why do I love Janelle Monae? Because she’s friggin brilliant! Her music is phenomenal and this latest offering, as part of the Kia Soul Collective, is no exception.


What My World Sounds Like: “Open Happiness”


Open Happiness is a collaboration written and produced by Butch Walker co-written by Cee-lo Green, remixed by Polow Da Don and performed by Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy), Brendon Urie (Panic at the Disco), Travis McCoy (Gym Class Heroes), Cee-Lo Green and Janelle Monae that gave these artists the unique chance to come together and create a song to uplift and inspire.

What My World Sounds Like: Janelle Monae


In December, I wrote about Janelle Monae.  Since then, she’s sold an impressive number of albums independently and signed with Bad Boy.  In a rather bogus move, she rereleased her Metropolis album, adding two songs that have nothing to do with the theme of this concept album.  Hmm…

At any rate, the original material is still genius and exciting.  Enjoy the video to “Many Moons.”
