Brazen Babe Reviews have this awesome meme called Tuesday Jams where you share a song that you currently love and can't get out of your head (Or in my case, off "repeat" on my iPod). Everyone's welcome to join in, the more the merrier! Be sure to leave your link on their blog post so that others can stop by and see your selection!
So, the one other thing I love just as much as reading? Listening to music! Though the majority of my music is modern country or movie scores, I do listen to a little bit of everything and am always on the look out for more music to add to my collection (You should see my iTunes library, it's HUGE). That's why Tuesday Jams has just become one of my new favorite memes!
Can't get out of my head song(s) this week are: The songs of Aaliyah.
Just like Selena, Aaliyah’s tragic death in a plane crash left a hole in the music world, made more saddening because she seemed like a truly lovely person who appreciated her fans (Something A LOT of musicians seem to lack these days). Her sultry, smooth and soft voice was angelic. I first heard Aaliyah when she sang Journey to the Past from the animated film Anastasia. I just had to hear more from her! Then came her hits Are You That Somebody and Try Again. I watched Romeo Must Die and yes, Queen of the Damned. No matter what, Aaliyah was beautiful and talented so when the news hit that she had died I was devastated just like the rest of her fans were.
Today marks the 14th anniversary of her death and like many of her other fans, I am thinking of her more today than any other. I have no doubt that just like Selena, Aaliyah would have been a true force in the music industry.
What's YOUR favorite Aaliyah song?
