My A to Z of Music

I was tagged a few days ago by my CyberSis JadedKiss and seeing as how I can’t say no to family (even against my better judgement…lol)… goes nothing:


A. Awilo Longomba (My future Wedding Singer), Anita Baker, Angie Stone, Amanda Stott

B. Bryan Adams, Brian Mcknight, Barry White, Bright Chimezie, Britney Spears (She introduced the world to giant albino snakes, made ‘toxic’ seem like something other than poisonous, and singlehandedly made being a ‘slave’ an aspiration not a historical nuisance!!!)


C. Celine Dion (Duet Partner with Awilo on my Wedding Day), Christina Aguilera, Corinne Bailey Rae, Chantal Kreviazuk, Cher!!!


D. Dido, David Bedingfield, Dixie Chicks, Dolly Parton (She wrote the soundtrack to me and My Jolene’s hearts)


E. Etta James, Eve, Eminem, Evanescence (I think my next Halloween costume will be a Transexual Goth Virgin Gynecologist), Erykah Badu’s “Tyrone”…lmao… I can’t believe she won’t even let her man use her cellphone to ‘Call Tyrone’.


F. Floetry’s “Butterflies”

G. Green Day (wake me up when This Year ends!!!), Gladys Knight (I find it interesting that she chose to leave on the “Midnight Train To Georgia”… why not the 11.30pm one?... wouldn’t that have helped her get to Georgia faster?!?!)

H. Heather Headley


I. India Arie, Imogen Heap (lol… I have tremendous respect for the only female with the boldness to insert these lyrics in a song and just sing her heart out “Come on into my bedroom… I want to fuck you”), Igbo Funeral Music (if sweet music could bring back the dead… no Igbo person would be buried!!!)

J. John Legend, Jill Scott, Jennifer Lopez’s “Rebirth” Album, Jah Cure, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, Justin Timberlake (I still wanna slow whine to that new song wit T.I… JadedKiss )

K. Keith Urban, Kylie Minogue,

L. Leann Womack, Leann Rimes, Lionel Richie, Luther Vandross, Lagbaja’s “Konko Below”(however you spell that)

M. Michael Buble (Gave my first lapdance to his music!!!), Mariah Carey, Marc Anthony, Martina McBride, Marvin Gaye, Michael Bolton, Michael Jackson (used to do the splits to thriller when I was 5… what happened?!?!)

N. Nigeria’s national Anthem!!! Norah Jones, Never KEM (lol… hate that strange fucker and I know you’re gonna kill me for saying that Naijadude)

O. Otis Redding, Oliver D Coque (this man’s music made my grandpa’s funeral seem like his birthday party…lol)

P. Pink, P***y Clap(lol… u know that clapping sound when you’re getting it soo GOOD?... yea… that’s music to my ears too!)

Q. Quentin Tarantino... he doesn’t sing? Oh sorry… he’s the only person I know with a name that starts with Q… so just imagine if he did sing… the hits he’d come up with!!!

R. R. Kelly, Ray Charles, Ricky Martin (any man who can shake his bon-bon like that definitely gets my vote!!!), Rod Stewart, Robin Thicke’s voice and music makes me feel so good inside

S. Sting, Sheryl Crow, Sergio Mendes, Shania Twain, Stevie Wonder, Scissor sisters, Shakira (even though I have no clue what she’s saying sometimes) and one of my all-time favorites… SADE!!!

T. Tim Mcgraw, Tyrese (his body more than his music), Toni Braxton, Twister (for obvious reasons… just the thought of him rapping 1,000 words per second directly in front of my p***y will create unheard of vibrations and sensations!)


U. Uncle Okey (our village drunkard in Naija… that man was a great beat composer, freestyler, historian and expert ‘romancer of girls behind bushes’ and ‘father’ to almost all the fatherless in our village’)

V. Vanessa Carlton

W. Whitney Houston, Wyclef Jean

X. XXX soundtracks (lmao… what can I say… the constant rhythm and sometimes strange moans in porn are sometimes soothing to the ears!!!)

Y. Y do I have to name singers for letters that I don’t know?????

Z. Zack Orji!?!?!? Zouk (some of the most sensual music I’ve ever heard… it’s music for bad girls and boys like me and u… lol)

I hereby tag everybody who’s ever tagged me (return punishment), or anybody who reads this blog!!!

I have a good excuse as to y I can't do it .U see my back hurts, my carpel tunnel is kicking in and my eyesight for some unexplainable reason just went blurry (poor me) ,oh I guess I must leave now. Bye deary. Nice songs btw.

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

@NaijaBloke: lol… you get the first prize!!! A free trip to the grocery store to get me some plantains... I’m craving dodo!!!

@Nigerican: lol… you better go and do this tag before your arthritis self kicks in… lmao… I give you only 3.78 days… anything later than that… you’ll answer to me missy!!!

@Anonymous aka JadedKiss: lol… Awilo and Celine Dion will create music history @ my wedding… but I don’t know Robin Thicke is doing something strange to my insides… so now I have to figure out if I should add him to the duet or not! Britney is cute oh.. did you see her on David Letterman? But crap… I heard today that she’s filed for divorce from Kevin Federline… awwww. Lol@gladys knight… you sure that’s the real reason? Which new song does Lagbaja have abeg? I luved that konko below song… great to dance to… I luv me some Oliver D Coque trust me… Makossa is the essence of life…. Lol.. I’m telling you the twista thing would just “blow” me away (literally… lol). Lmao… I heard Omotola’s new song called dance… it wasn’t bad… Genevieve’s sucked ass… so I just guessed that Zack will soon follow suit!(lol.. I’m lying.. its cos I didn’t know any artist for Z)… Had fun doing it… but come Cybersis... you too dey tag me oh!!! Lol…

Soul said...

Q = Quincy Jones! (lady you need to be spanked for not remembering the great man)

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Soul said...
