Back In the Day Music Post

WOW!!!! Man, I'm a HUUUGE fan of all types of music, especially old school shit, and 90's hits from the likes of Boys II Men, Dru Hill, Mya, Aaliyah, even P. Shitty when he was Puff Daddy and Mase. Well, I sing a lil bit, and I tend to remember random parts of old songs. They get stuck in my head for days until I start humming out hooks. Urges get so strong to hear the whole song that I eventually download it on limewire.

Well, Miss Mya ("My Love is Like Whoa", "Take Me There", etc) is trying to come back out with a brand new single titled "Ridin'". Now truth be told, I am kinda skeptical as to if it is really her singing. I mean, Mya's voice has never been really strong (not that the female singing "Ridin"'s voice is), but hey it could indeed be her. There are certain parts in the song when I'm like, "Yeah that's her" and others where I'm like WTFITS (who the fuck is this sista)?! Anyway, Ashanti is supposedly on a new Jagged Edge track but the chick singing doesn't always sound like her either. I mean, sure your voice can change over time, but damn...these folks evolved THAT MUCH vocally? And to be honest these evolutions really did nothing for their voices...*cough* LOL...

Anyway, back to Mya. So I had the song "It's All About Me" in my head all last week. When I got home I decided to download it. Been bumping it every night since Sunday. Mya has a decent voice. Some of my favorite tracks by or featuring her are: "Best of Me (remix)" with Jay-Z, "Take Me There" with Blackstreet, "Ghetto Superstar" with Praz, "My First Night with You", and "My Love is Like Whoa"....and of course "It's All About Me" with Dru Hill's Sisqo.

But who knew that Mya had some other shit I would start bumpin on a daily basis. The songs I got stuck in my head now HAVE TO BE as old as Mya's career, but they are catchy and cute at the same time. I don't know if any of you have heard these songs, but if not, preview them on limewire. They're not bad at all. The names of the songs are "If you died I wouldn't cry cause you never loved me anyway" ft. Dru Hill (I know that's prolly not the name but that's what limewire said) and "No More Tears (on my pillow)". Both of them are about broken hearts (which I'm not experiencing at the present moment, but I can relate), and "Never Loved Me Anyway" (short title version) is obviously a "die nigga, die" type songs. And Miss Mya doesn't try to hide that fact, or that she's hurt...especially with lyrics like, "I hope you die, I HOPE YOU DIE!" and "You can get struck like ligthening, washed away by the sea, burned in a fire, just don't bring it back to me." (which is my fave part of the song)...

*sigh* but yeah...check those out...any girl is sure to like them if you are remotely interested in Mya. And don't forget to peep out her new song "Ridin". It's catchy, funky, and crazy--and has been deemed by some as the Stalker Anthem of 2007...much like "In My Mind" by Heather Headley was for ' haha...But I'll HOLLA!!!!

Lyrics to Mya's "Ridin" via


It's been five hours since you left here boy
Said you were goin' round the block, had to make a stop
So I kept your dinner, hot-hot-hot
And I've been waiting for you ever since, it's 3 in the morning yeah
But 3 turns into 4 and 4 turns into five
Then 6 rolls around whatchu tryna do, baby, make me cry?
I don't know what I did, but I know what I'm gonna do

I'm gonna find you


I'm ridin', I'm ridin' past yo mommaz house
You got me ridin', I'm ridin' past yo boys' house
You got me ridin', I'm ridin', I'm ridin' tryna find you
Baby you got me out here lookin' for you,
I'm ridin, I'm ridin past that bitch's house
You got me ridin', I'm ridin' by all yo ex's house
You got me ridin', I'm ridin', I'm ridin' tryna find you
Baby you got me out here lookin' for you I...


When you stepped to me, you had nothing
But the shoes on your feet, no place to sleep
So I let you lay yo head on my pillow
You didn't have a dime, so I helped you find your grind, yo ass is just a waste of time
And I played the fool for you, it's 3 in the morning yeah
And it's not weekend, o ho
But 3 turns into 4 and 4 turns into five
Then 6 rolls around whatchu tryna do, baby, make me cry?
I don't know what I did, but I know what I'm gonna doI'm gonna find you



I been sippin' on Red Bull so there ain't gon' be no sleep tonight
Not gonna let you go oh no, without a fight
See you're the type to make a girl do things she know ain't right
5 gallons of gas, and I'm drivin fast
Where you at, where you at, where you at



It's 3 in the morning
It's 4 in the morning
It's 5 in the morning
Where you at, where you at, where you at
(repeat and fade)

I do accept as true with all of the ideas you've introduced for your post. They're really convincing and can
certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for
beginners. May just you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?
Thanks for the post.
