Fun Day Monday – Name That Band

May 10, 2010

So last week, a friend of mine posted something on his Facebook status that got me pretty excited. He said:

“What!?! Color Me Badd and Shai are coming to Honolulu?? Time to buss out the ol’ Z Cavaricci’s.”

I know, sounds kinda da kine to get excited over something like that, but sheez, that be some flashback memories right there (for a guy like me at least).


Color Me Badd – I Wanna Sex You Up

And when I say a “guy like me” I’m talkin’ about a:

* first-CD-I-ever-owned-was-C.M.B.
* grew-up-on-these-bands-and-used-to-make-“Love-Jams”-mixes-with-these-songs-to-impress-the-ladies…
* listened-to-these-songs-on-my-Walkman-(while-the-teammates-listened-to-n.w.a.-and-nirvana)-on-the-bus-on-the-way-to-a-game…
* put-it-on-repeat-in-the-car-as-well-as-in-the-shower-so-I-could-memorize-every-intricate-detail-of-the-song…
* sang-in-groups-who-used-to-harmonize-(or-at-least-try!)-like-these-bands…

… kinda guy.

So yeah, as you can tell, I was a fan! Hearing that they will be reuniting and doing a show here in Hawaii is of particular interest.


Shai – If I Ever Fall In Love

I’m curious to know what bands excite you. We’re of varying ages, races and sexes up in hurr, so I’m sure we’ve all got our interesting tastes in music. (And yes, though it does sound familiar, we’ve never had this as a topic before (I think). I checked. Feel free to include your favorite fashion stylings of those times as well!

Holla!
* Who were some of your favorite bands growing up?
* What memories do you have of those times?
* Do you remember the fashion then? What were they?

Post um in the comment area below!

Fave Five Friday, Wedding Songs

September 19, 2008

I know you peeps are probably sick of all this wedding talk already (esp the dudes!), but I swear it’ll only be a little while longer. I only “axe” this because I have faith in you WWE readers. 🙂

So this week’s Fave Five list is a call out to all you music lovers/experts out there. No song from any generation or genre will be out of the question. We’re looking for those hidden gems out there.

The topic, as made obvious by the blog title, is Wedding Songs. Ones I’ve just gotsta have and overplayed ones to avoid like the plague. If you’re yet unmarried, or married but regret not playing some songs at your wedding… here’s your chance to live vicariously through me! 😉 Holla atcho boy!

Much love y’all!

Da In Da Running list:

  1. The Penguins – Earth Angel
  2. Stevie Wonder – You Are the Sunshine of My Life or Isn’t She Lovely or Ribbon in the Sky?
  3. James Taylor – How Sweet It Is (to Be Loved By You)
  4. Tony Terry – Everlasting Love
  5. Colbie Caillat – Magic
  6. Trey Lorenz – Someone to Hold
  7. Keith Martin – Because of You
  8. Hi-Five – I Can’t Wait Another Minute
  9. Opihi Pickers – Love You Forever (representing’ some Hawaiian flava!)
  10. The Stylistics – I’m Stone In Love With You
  11. The Jets – You Got It All
  12. etc…

(ok, so it’s a little more than 5… hehe!)

Da Overplayed/Avoid list:

  1. UNV – So In Love With You
  2. All-4-One – I Swear
  3. Aerosmith – I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
  4. 98 Degrees – I Do (Cherish You)
  5. *NSYNC – This I Promise You

We basically want people to hear the song, reminisce and go “Ohhhhhhh!” once they hear the song that hits home for them. Please help a brutha out and post your suggestions below (songs, artists, both!). I’ll be sure to give you credit during the reception (who’s gonna check? Nah!). 😛

P.S. Speaking of weddings, I recently read a fictional, but amusing post about Twittering a wedding and thought the idea was hilarious. Can you imagine me, or any groom for that matter, at the altar twittering live updates. Too funny!

Shoots! Have a good weekend y’all!
