Soundtrack for your Week

Hello friends!

I hope you’re all doing great.

For today’s mellow Sunday post, I’m sharing a few songs that I’m currently loooooving. I randomly decided to feature Tasha Cobbs songs this evening so get ready to treat your ears to some vocal powerhouse awesomeness!

If you’d like more posts like this, let me know and I’ll try my best to do it as often as possible. Or perhaps, it could be a Sunday thing?

One random thing- I loooooove music. I’m that annoying person who’s always wearing earphones and listening to music. Teehee. Also, if you have music you’d like me to check out, do let me know. 🙂

If you’re feeling energetic and funky, try this song by Tasha Cobbs.

If you’d rather have a chilled out day and you want some softer music, why don’t you try this song. Actually, of the three songs here, this next song is my favorite. I like the tempo and the lyrics.

If you’ve enjoyed the two songs above, you might want to try this last one. I love love love the lyrics. It makes me wonder though, am I sure I’ll provide the sacrifice? Note- a sacrifice is not just a gift. A sacrifice demands much more than just a gift. So if you’re singing this song, make sure that you know what you’re singing 😀 But I promise you, if you give a befitting gift to the Lord, you life will never be the same again.

That’s it for today friends!

Thanks for all the love and keep liking my Facebook page, follow me on twitter and on instagram.

Have a lovely week and God bless and keep you!

    THE POWER OF MUSIC AND RECORDED SONGS
    Ever since you posted that beautiful song by the lady from Ghana, which i played a few times before it went on strike, refusing to open again, in, i think, July of 2015 or was it 2016, with my system box saying ‘an error occurred. Please try again’, even after so amny other trial times, i have not been able to open and listen to anyone else. So your three songs are intact in my system, on strike, refusing to open as well. So count me out of the luxury of so listening!

    But in life i later got to know the inherent power in documented songs, music and play.

    Back at the University of Ife, before you were ever born, way back in 1981, the legendary Nigerian, nay, African music icon, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, came visiting us after a tour of Europe. And the banners were all over the place on campus and even in Ife Town, ‘AFTER EUROPE FELA TOURS IFE’. So everyone was apprehensive. Fela? Ah! Why Ife? That was the , I think, the first time he would perform on a university campus(?) We, students, were having a mixed basket of joy and remorse. Why Ife? What would he say against the government? Won’t our campus be shut? Because Fela was construed to be anti government.
    The show was on a Friday night at the expansive cafeteria of Fajuyi Hall. Luckily, i lived in Fajuyi at the time. Start time was to be 9pm till down. So i thought i could do a little of reading. Then come back around 8pm. Have some food. And wonder for the show. But alas! how mistaken i was. At 645pm the hall was full. All available seats were taken up. By 730 pm everywhere was tense. Professors. Doctorates. Seniors. Workers. Old students. Freshers. All sprawling on the floor. Where would you even stand?
    I was amazed. Had not seen such a gathering. Nay, at our matriculation everyone had a seat. So where else was the crowd like this? SUG election Speech Night was in the open, inexhaustible sports arena, and open field. For the 2huors i sat on the bare concrete floor, i did not notice even one lady say, please excuse me, to even go out to the ladies. Nor the gents! We were all freezing to wait for Fela, whose preparation for coming and appearance, unknown to us many, would normally take upwards of 3 hours. We were waiting, still listening to some soft mixed tunes.

    Then suddenly there was this man made thunder sound! As if it would rain in the mangrove forest, the jazz was everywhere. Then the wild sound of trumpets. And drums. And cymbals. And clapping sticks. Loud loudspeakers. REverbrations everywhere. And freight. And then a troop of funnily dressed dancers appeared. Thunderous ovation rent the air. FELA WILL SOON APPEAR!, said the feminine announcer. Then ten minutes passed with hall in same electric atmosphere. Then the bouncers with biceps i only saw when king Cameroon, the power man visited our secondary school bending six inch nails with bare hands, began to slowly , gesticulate into the hall many with dark glasses.And finally.

    At to 12midnight. FELA would come in in a manner better seen than imagined or described. Many able-bodied young men followed him into the large performing dais. Then the numbers were rolling on. LPs. Then the yabis. Then unstoppable frenzy of virtually everyone dancing in one form or the other. For upwards of three hours FELA did not stop. Only the dancers were changing. At that time Polaroid wait-n-take cameras were in fashion. Who did not want Fela in his background photo? that wasw the first stanza. Time 3am.

    Then he resumed at 4am with a speech. ‘I will not die” he said. It only took the intervention of one humanities professor to explain and expatiate on what death Fela meant. “Fela would mortally die…but his music will never die…and so Fela will never die”, the Prof explained in detail and to the delight of all. Then moments later, Fela resumed the LPs. At 7am, no one was ashamed to leave the venue. Fela is great even in death.

    Today any tv or radio station that has the opportunity of airing Fela’s music, brings traffic to a halt, temporarily. Fela is alive till date in music. His music remains fresh.
    That is the power in Music and recorded songs.

    That may be why the Psalmist said..everyone praise the Lord… with songs and cymbals, praise the Lord…!

  4. Thank you Alheri for your post. I’m impressed and proud that someone I know personally has joined in giving the Internet a soul. The blogosphere has fast turned our world including God anonymous. What you’re doing is truly healing and I’m benefiting from it. Writing is not easy but when it is ones passion, not writing becomes frustrating. I think you’re “addicted” to writing. Thanks for offering the world your little.
