Hey, my dearest readers!
Thanks a lot for your great reviews about my blog. You all are darlings. Due to the feedback I got from you guys, I changed the mobile version to look exactly like the web interface so as to include all the social links like Twitter, Facebook and of course, a member forum. Some of you also complained that you were unable to comment. Uhmmm, would it be too much to ask if I asked you to open a Google account as that is the only way you can comment? Go to accounts.google.com and the rest will follow. Oh, I forgot, you can also sign in and comment if you have a Gmail account. I’m hoping you wouldn’t see it as a stressful task. Thanks!!!
Ok, back to the main topic at hand!
Lyrics, lyrics, lyrics!!! Great music is all about lyrics. Finding the right lyrics in a song to tune with the right beat is what makes a classic hit. In Nigeria, the music industry is thriving day by day. A lot of people want to have a feel, a taste of that frenzy, the publicity, the spotlight, love from the fans, the money, you know, everything that comes with being a star. So, you see most young ones producing, rapping and singing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not disapproving. I mean if you got the talent, show it, rock it!!!
I am actually a big fan of great rap songs. I love the rhymes, the beats, the punch lines that make you go ‘’Whattttttt?’’ Hahaha. This post was inspired by a person close to my heart. Well, he told me that I have got good lines in rap. So I’ll drop a few so you can judge for yourself. I have been playing with these lyrics in my head. Please, if it is great, tell me. If it’s bad, don’t be scared, tell me ooo. If it’s funny, you are free to laugh. This is the first time I’m actually writing one. This is not an attempt to storm the music industry. It is just for fun.
So, here goes. These are lyrics to a love rap song straight from my heart.
Day I saw you; Knew you were always gon’ be on my menu
Told my heart ‘Be still’; It was booming like a drill
You gave me that smile; My head spun for miles.
I fell ‘heels over head’; See, now I do need my meds
I never fell this hard; It’s crazy, it’s madddd
My girls don’t even know me; Dude, you gotta fix me
Swimming in an ocean full of emotions; Is this me, who would have had the notion?
This is no joke; No, I’m not doing coke
It’s real, it’s live; Me feelings are alive
Butterflies in my tummy; Hmmm your love is yummy
You say the right words; My heart goes a-flutter
It’s definitely magic; I’m melting like butter
What can I say?
This love is hot like fire; It’s all electric, Baby, it’s wired
So honey, this heart is yours to keep; Oh, yeah never ever lemme weep
My heart is your home; Yours’ is my dome
Hope this lasts forever; Don’t want it gone, neverrrrrr!!!
I’m rapping words; Me? Never used to do this
No control over my hands; You, You, You did this!
Mary J. said ‘Mr Wrong’; Nahhhh you’re always right
I love you baby; Damn with all my might
My tall drink of chocolate goodness; And no I don’t mean the beverage sweetness
We are two peas in a pod; You and I in our own world
A roller coaster of emotions; Uhmmm did you give me a potion?
I love you, I love you…. Yeah baby, It’s all true!!!
So, is it ‘’lyrically loud’’? You be the judge!!!
