Yes I’m jacking this from Jamelle.

I’m trying to figure out ways to pull my personality out of myself & put it into this blog. Music is very important to me. I also believe that a person’s musical taste can tell you a lot about them. Personally I think my music taste says that I am interested in a very wide variety of things, which I am. These are 10 songs that came up when I hit the genius button in my itunes playlist.

The root:
Konichiwa Bitches

Robyn from Robyn

The list:

Shove It f. Spank Rock
Santogold from Santogold

Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death from Above

The Kills from Midnight Boom

I’m a Lady f. Trouble Andrew

Dirty Harry
Gorillaz from Demon Days

I originally wanted to put up the MGMT video but for some reason all of the videos I could find on youtube have the embedding disabled. I really love that song. Konichiwa Bitches is a song I randomly found last night while watching Chappelle’s Show. The racial draft skit came on. The Wu-Tang clan gets chosen by the Asian delegation. At the end of their speech GZA says konichiwa bitches! For whatever reason I decided to google the phrase. Robyn’s song is the 1st thing that comes up. I listened to it, liked it & downloaded it. The list is pretty much all dance-pop slash electronica type stuff. I really enjoy all the songs on this list a lot. Just good fun music, though my favorite, Time to Pretend, is kind of a bleak look at “rock star life”.

Update: I had not idea that the above Robyn is the same Robyn of this:

Of course during the 90′s I didn’t know the name of any artist that wasn’t doing Hip Hop. I vividly remember this song but I just wasn’t actively following anyone but Hip Hop & R&B artists.
