The Root - D'Angelo
Love Ballad - L.T.D.
Love Will Find A Way - Lionel Richie

Three songs from three different decades. Lionel and Jeffrey can sing their asses off, D'Angelo does something that resembles singing. So what do these songs have in common? During the last 2 minutes of the song, they repeat their choruses over and over again. This may not sound like a big deal to you, but this is a phenomenon not often heard in songs on the radio these days. All three of these songs have that component, and its absolutely beautiful, and it damn near puts you in a trance. So take some time out of your day, and listen to each of these songs, but pay special attention to the end. For the L.T.D. song, the good part starts at the 2:55 mark; for the Lionel Richie song, the magic starts at the 3:38 mark, and for the D'Angelo song the trance starts at the 4:37 mark. Its quite possible you could listen, and not hear a damn thing, but I doubt it.

don't say nothing bad about D'Angelo. Yes, he's having some rough times now, but he's utterly amazing, and could sing me to sleep anytime. (hopefully, the BF won't mind)

awesome songs.

Don't forget it "make me say it again girl" by dem isley's. They have the repeat on lockdown. I always lose count after 50.
