They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)  performed by Pete Rock and CL Smooth  1992
Recommended by lionson76 [profile]

Pure rhymes and ghetto eloquence: "When I date back I recall the man of the family tree, my right hand, poppa doc I see. Took me from a boy to man so I always had a father when my biological didn't bother..."

from Mecca and the Soul Brother (Elektra), available on CD

  20 Apr 01 ·tinks: i absolutely love this cut, it was one of my favorites back in 11th grade when it came out. good choice!
  31 May 01 ·delicado: and that sampled beat/guitar riff at the beginning is awesome as well - anyone know where that's from?
For my lover  performed by Tracy Chapman  1987
Recommended by alexr [profile]

The song is one of those songs you hear and hear and you can still hear after all these years without getting tired of it.

Why I like it so much? Hmm the question I should ask is, who doesn't like it so much???
When you are tired, you go home, light a candle, close your eyes, and listen to Chapman's song. It will take you to another dimension, Chapman's dimension. -a.

from Tracy Chapman (EMI 102123), available on CD

  19 Apr 01 ·danko: is this a joke?
  23 Apr 01 ·tinks: I think Chapman's dimension is located somewhere off Exit 73 of the Jersey Turnpike.
the lady is a tramp  performed by della reese
Recommended by king8egg [profile]

before della reese was touched by an angel she was a singer. it seems that some songs own their singers and other songs the vocalist owns the song. in della's case she definately owns the song. this song rocks and swings with blaring horns and percussion that makes it hard to sit still. and then della's voice comes in with all its unique style letting you know exactly who is boss. after della's version any other version just pales in comparison.

from della (bmg 74321 415012), available on CD

  24 Apr 01 ·tinks: I've always really loved Buddy Greco's version of this song. Late 50s Vegas mob-pop at it's finest.
Tensity  performed by Cannonball Adderley Quintet & Orchestra
Recommended by bobbyspacetroup [profile]

A great cut with that classic Axelrod sound. Also included are compositions by Joe Zawinul and Lalo Schifrin. Check it out...

from Cannonball Adderley Quintet & Orchestra (Capitol ST-484)

  25 Apr 01 ·tinks: Great song. Great album all around, in fact.
  07 Mar 06 ·nickfresh: Most Definitely one of my favorite albums! One of the great selections.
teenie weenie boppie  performed by france gall  1968
Recommended by daidai [profile]

i'm unsure about the year this was recorded but it's a great french pop song. apparently, france is singing about lsd. 'tee-nie wee-nie bopp-ie'is rather infectious.

  26 Apr 01 ·tinks: Yeah, I love this track. It was written by Serge Gainsbourg and recorded in 1967. It was released on the "1968" LP, which is available on CD as a French import. Also includes the great song "Made in France".
  02 May 01 ·tinks: i should also mention that the song isn't really about's not really *about* anything. kinda like seinfeld. she just mentions it in there.
  28 May 01 ·daidai: yeh, i really wasn't too sure about this. i was merely going off of information from a source. ^.^
