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?

Fave Five Friday – Must Have CDs (Desert Island edition)

January 23, 2009

OK, so last week’s (Desert Island) DVD list seemed to be a pretty decent hit. We even got some lurkers to come out of shadows and post up in hurr. Woo hoo! Hopefully, this post will bring out more. C’mon y’all, don’t be scurred! 🙂 This week, let’s go with the next logical list: CDs! Awwwww yeah!

So I don’t need to explain the rules right? Let’s get on with the show! Stuck? Get some help here or here.

  1. Dr. Dre – “The Chronic – Dre and Snoop Dogg at their best! Who wants to battle me in “Nuthin’ But A G Thang?” 😛
  2. Shai – “…If I Ever Fall In Love” – Another classic! Used to listen to it going to bed errry night back in the day.
  3. Color Me Badd – “C.M.B. – My very first CD purchase (transitioning from cassette tapes)! This one got some miles one it!
  4. Anything Rockapella – These bruthas are insane! You might recognize them from their “Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego” song. Their vocal percussionist Jeff Thatcher is amazing (see video below). My dream is to one day see them in person.
  5. Anything Ka`au Crater Boys – Gotta bring the Hawaiian jams right? And who better than the starters of the ukulele craze (to the mainstream). Hopefully, I can bring my uke to the island too. 🙂

Honorable mentions go to Boyz II Men – “Cooleyhighharmony“, Dixie Chicks – “Wide Open Spaces” and/or “Fly“, R Kelly and Public Announcement – “Born Into the 90’s“, Brotherhood Creed – “BHC“, or Rick Astley – “Whenever You Need Somebody” (oh yeah! I went there!)!

Post yours below so I can see which classics I missed!

Have a happy Aloha Friday (and weekend) y’all! Shoots!
