The White Stripes

Jack, Jack and more Jack!!!! I absolutely love Jack White! Jack White is incredibly talented. He has been in multiple bands my favorite is the White Stripes of course. I enjoy his solo projects too he’s working on a new one right now. Chris Cornell did a cover Seven Nation Army and he killed it. I just want to go on record about how much I love Jack White. Jack White looks a little like Johnny Depp. It would be a dream for me to check out his record store Third Man Records. He has broken so many records like the fastest record made. There is so much in store from him I know it and I so cannot wait!

Headbangers Ball

Headbangers ball was one of my all time favorite shows that was on MTV you know when it actually was music television. The show was awesome with hosts Adam Curry and Riki Rachtman. I remembered staying up late to watch headbangers ball with Riki Rachtman. Back in the day  I would record the show on a VHS tape so  I could it watch the show over and over again until the following Saturday. I watched headbangers ball between the years of 1987 and 1995 that’s when the show was at it’s best in my opinion. I have so many memories of  various bands guest appearances Nirvana, Guns N Roses, Pearl Jam and of course Soundgarden.

Moment of Silence

Let me start off by saying that I have Not watched an award show since the 90s as far as I am concerned today’s music isn’t good music at all. In my day artist cared about making a great album and not just making a hit song. Man, where did music go wrong? The artist from the 80s and 90s helps the music of today to be halfway worth listening to. The music today samples a lot of the old music of yesterday. With that being said I am Not pleased about the tribute that was given to Chris Cornell a moment of silence!? Like you folks have to be kidding me!! Chris Cornell deserved way more than a moment of silence.

Yeah, I know it sounds like I’m in my feelings well that’s because I am. I am beyond disappointed. I’m glad that I don’t watch award shows especially the Billboards awards they’re absolute garbage anyway. Chris Cornell passed way on a Wednesday and you are telling me that they couldn’t come up with a better tribute than what he got?! Stick a fork in me because I’m done. Nothing against Cher, Celine Dion or Drake if you like watching your grandma parading around in sheer garments at 71, a walking white rose that has been plucked from dress and synthesized voices. Enlighten me were those the original outfits Cher wore when I was a teenager I have got to know?! Ummmm Cher you cannot turn back time you’re a grandma’s age no disrespect. What was Celine Dion wearing last night?! Drake won an award nothing against synthesized voices however Robert Troutman did it better just ask 2Pac California Love baby!!!

If I was in charge of giving a tribute for Chris Cornell it would have been truly memorable. The moment of silence didn’t last because the people in the audience didn’t have enough respect to stay silent for long. What can I say that’s just the way of the world. Okay I am done ranting. On a lighter note U2, Dave Mustaine, Areosmith, Queensryche, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica gave a tribute to Chris Cornell. Thank goodness for the artist from years ago they are keeping great music alive.

What’s Tameeka Listening to?

Chris Cornell passed away on May 17 and so  I wanted to share his music. It was so hard to choose a song  I love Temple of The Dog, Soundgarden, Audioslave and his solo music. I decided to go with “Hunger Strike” Chris voice was amazing in this song. Check it out:

Check Out the Lyrics

“J.I.F.E.”

[Verse 1:]
I opened up my eyes to the world and I see
They got a lot of guns and they aimin’ at me
‘Cause they say I love the church, I don’t care about the streets
That’s so far from the truth, why they lyin’ on me?
I’m where I’m supposed to be, tryna play my role
Staying faithful to the gospel, seen a lot of growth
Been a lot of testimonies all around the globe
And I ain’t braggin’, that’s from rapping ’bout what God has spoke
It used to be a gift, now it’s criticized
If my heart is for the church, why is this a crime?
Whatever happened to the days when the minister’s pride
Was speaking life into the body? I’m a bit surprised, better recognize

[Hook:]
Looking at the church, got my eyes on the streets
Looking at the world with their eyes on me
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh
Jesus Is For Everybody
Looking at the poor, got my eyes on the rich
Looking at the trap boys and the life of a prince
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh
Jesus Is For Everybody

[Verse 2:]
I open up my eyes to the church and I see
Them automatic weapons and they’re aiming at me
They say I’m preaching to the choir, people dyin’ in the streets
You’d be preaching to them too if you’ve seen them lately
No doubt is in my mind, it’s making perfect sense
Am I doing something wrong talking to the saints?
I’m just giving them my all, and I’m in my own skin
While I’m building up the body walking in his grace
While I’m talking to the church, I hope they overhear
We want the whole world to know we over here
I’m talking from the lawyers and the doctors to the corners with the choppers
To the homies in the barber chair, my whole career

[Hook:]
Looking at the church, got my eyes on the streets
Looking at the world with their eyes on me
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh
Jesus Is For Everybody
Looking at the poor, got my eyes on the rich
Looking at the trap boys and the life of a prince
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody

[Verse 3:]
Just for a moment can I stand in my own defense?
I had a brief talk with Kanye West
Dealing with Nick Cannon, only told my friends
The issue with Tech N9ne, a little more complex
Now I can tell you’re impressed, I’m talking with the stars
What good is that if I don’t speak to security guards?
Something’s wrong with my maturity, charity’s flaw
‘Cause I ain’t speakin’, man this whole family is lost
I guess the moral of the story is
Jesus Christ came for the notorious, and the saint
Grace for the less glorious, and the fame
Understand where the glory is, it’s in his name

[Hook:]
Looking at the church, got my eyes on the streets
Looking at the world with their eyes on me
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody
Looking at the poor, got my eyes on the rich
Looking at the trap boys and the life of a prince
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody
