Big G - "Darkest Hour"

Dr. Nick has done it again - he always knows the music that I want to hear!  He's been playing Big G's "Darkest Hour" on Spice Internet Radio (http://www.wsir-db.com) and I've fallen in love. 💕 Big G starts by singing that it's another lonely night with him lying in bed all alone.  It's been three weeks since the day she walked out their home and his heart hurts more and more every day.  Oh my, I'm a sucker for a lonely man singing a begging song. lol  Here are the words to the chorus:

Ever since the day you left, everything's been going wrong
I've lied to myself, tried convincing myself
But the darkest hour is just before the dawn
That's when I'm dreaming about you and me
About the things that we do, just me and you
I never felt love till I found you

"Darkest Hour" is a beautiful, soulful ballad, I love it.  Thank you Dr. Nick!!

I saw Big G for the first time in Ladysmith, Virginia - see my post http://southernsoulparadise.blogspot.com/2016/08/southern-soul-blues-celebration-in.html.  It was a great show!  I'm looking forward to seeing him at the end of the month - more details soon!!

If you can take me back, I'll do whatever it takes...

Nellie "Tiger" Travis - "Mr. Sexy Man, The Album"

Nellie Tiger Travis is a dynamic artist and performer.  I love to watch her live because she 1) sounds just like her records and 2) she makes me feel like I’m part of the show.  This Mississippi girl has a great personality and a wonderful stage presence. 

I recently drove from Alabama to Maryland (yes, I drove) and listened to all of the new “Mr. Sexy Man, The Album” from track 1 all the way through track 12.  I absolutely loved it!  The CD starts with Mr. Sexy Man which may as well be our national anthem!  What better line is there when we see that guy we like!  Hey Mr. Sexy Man, what ‘cho name is??? Cause we really want to know.  I think the song on the CD that I like the best  – mainly because I hadn’t heard interludes done in awhile - is “Smile.”  Earth, Wind, and Fire incorporated music interludes on their albums and one I remember is “Brazilian Rhyme (Beijo)  which is  on their “All ‘N All”  album.  Nellie’s interlude lasts all of 1.05 minutes and her lyrics are “it’s a beautiful day, smile.”  It is simple and oh so very pretty.  Nice job, Nellie!


I also love “I Woke Up In Love.”  

I'm the type of person who will buy a CD for one song but you don't have to worry about that with "Mr. Sexy Man, the Album." Every cut on this CD is good and I think the writing and her musicians are all excellent.  The quality of the music along with her soulful voice make this a wonderful album.  It's definitely worth adding to your collection!

Tyree Neal - "Bring It On Home"

After so many years with my sidepiece, I just want my baby back..... Well, he does admit that he cheated and shouldn't have lied; shouldn't have come home with an alibi.  Ok, he knows he was wrong.  I don't know, I think I'd have to think mighty hard about taking him back. lol  I still like this song -no, I love this song!!  It's pretty smooth and I like Tyree's voice.  Kind of easy to sing along with him. 😊

"Bring It On Home" is taken from Tyree Neal's 2015 "I'll Be The Other Man" album.

Simone De - "Something to Talk About"

I'm a big Simone De fan and here's his latest single that has also been on WDLT's top ten countdown for the last few weeks.  I love the melody, the beginning kind of reminds you of  R. Kelly's step song but the rest is all Simone De.  This is a love song; he falls for this girl who's on the dance floor even though he doesn't know her name.  They seem to have a strong connection and you know how it is when people see what you have with someone else - they all want to talk about you even though they don't have a clue.  So, he says let's give them something to talk about!  

A nice dance/step song!
