Ode to Love & Its Messenger, Music (post 1)

There is nothing like hearing your significant other say all the right things…sigh

Love is something special people, and I’m not just saying that because I’m in love, I’m saying it because it has forever and always will be true. And to think about it music has always played a major part in passing on the message of love. Music spreads the message of love in such a unique and wonderful way…I ♥ MUSIC

With that being said, this blog post is an ode to love and to music spreading the beautiful message of love. The songs posted will be random (because yall know I am very random at times) and this blog entry will not and definitely could not possibly encompass all of the wonderful love songs that have been written.

This first song is one that I hadn’t heard for a while but tonight as I tuned in to VH1 Soul Player (love me some VH1 Soul Player) this song was coming on and immediately I remembered how awesome it was. PLUS I have always been a huge Ladies Love Cool James fan so anything he says I’m ready and willing to hear. LL said something with this song. Check out the lyrics

(and we won’t even discuss LL eating with those chopsticks…woah now lol)

Baby smile today
Cause I’ve been imagining more ways
I’m gon’ love you better
When your friends’ll see you too
Just when you think there’s nothin’ else I can do
I’m gon’ love you better
-LL Cool J
