What’s Tameeka Listening To?

This is my last What’s Tameeka Listening to post of 2016. I will say this over and over again I love music!!!! When it comes to mainstream music  I enjoy very few songs. My playlist has a lot of old school music in it. I was having a conversation today  and  I was thinking about how  most times my favorite songs by an artist usually isn’t one of their biggest hits. When  I listen to an album I listen to the entire thing not just the big hit. I’ll give an example my two favorite songs by Prince are Money Doesn’t Matter 2 Night and Adore. Most people favorite song by George Micheal is Careless Whisper but my favorite song is Praying for time. Speaking of Prince and George Micheal they will be missed  I can’t believe that they are gone. There were many musicians who passed away this year David Bowie, Phife Dawg, Joey Feek, Maurice White, Natalie Cole, Merle Haggard, Frank Sinatra Jr., Paul Kantner and Glenn Frey to name a few. Life is short get right with Christ, forgive and love.

The Material Girl’s Prince Tribute

Many of Prince fans wasn’t happy about Madonna paying tribute to him on the Billboards Awards. It has been years since I have watched an award show I guess because of the music being made in the recent years. Like how is most of it even award worthy. Which gets me to thinking about the people who started a petition to stop Madonna from performing as if those people have a clue about real music Yeah I said, I’m just saying.

Now I will admit that I am partial to Madonna I’ve been a fan of hers every since I was very young. My mother bought me her 45s and LPs for my stereo which had a record player. Even with that being said she’s still a fantastic artist she and Prince were both red hot in the 80s. Yes it takes big shoes order to fill Prince’s legacy and the same applies for Madonna. It makes sense to think of picking her to pay tribute.

If we’re up to me I would have had various artists performing their favorite songs by Prince Lenny Kravitz being one of them. I watched Madonna tribute to Prince on YouTube it was pretty good Stevie Wonder joined her singing Nothing Compares To You. Prince wrote the song and Sinead O’Connor sang it which was a huge hit. Hmmmmmm I think I will share it on What’s Tameeka listening to? At the end of the day a true fan of an artist must be a music lover to understand the depth of music. Kind like a football so called fan who bails out when a team lose or a Walking Dead so called fan refusing to watch it if Daryl dies they are not true fans just a group of people looking for something to complain about. Madonna did well if people have a problem why don’t they try to do it doubt if they will be successful. Ummmmm Yeah I Said.

Where Is The Love?

This week has been one of much loss Chyna the wrestler, Doris Roberts and Prince.Yesterday was an extremely sad day for me. Yes it was the day that Prince passed away but it was far more deeper than that. There were a few Christians ( by the way a few is too many) criticizing Prince come on the man is gone. Just because they no longer listen to secular music doesn’t give them the right to speak on the dead. I don’t care what anybody says. How would they like it if it were their souls that others were speaking on?

The name Christian has Christ in it some Christians really have me wondering whether Christ is in them. They have the judging part down to a science however lack other things like being humble Proverbs 16:19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. No one should act so super spiritual that they forget where they came from. Otherwise that’s being self centered or vain whichever word you choose. Christians are to be merciful Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: they shall obtain mercy. Everything one of us has experienced loss so let’s have some compassion for others.

I will not pretend that I know where Prince soul is because I don’t. What I do know he died alone, there are millions of people who loved him and that God is the only one who came save him. How do any one us know where he is now? Some of the characteristics of certain Christians are that of the Pharisees and not of Christ. We wonder why so many Christians are slipping away or outsiders don’t want anything to do with our faith. As far as I am concerned the true proof of your walk with Christ is the number of people who come to you wanting to be saved. How many people have approached you? One thing is for sure negative words can’t saved Prince soul he has already passed on. We are to never forget that no one is too far gone that God can’t saved them and that includes Prince as well.
