The Soundtrack To: Needs


I got to watching Sex and the City the other day looking for some ‘single girl’ advice, and what I gathered was that the same questions I had once had,  are still circulating in my mind. And in search of these answers I have suddenly realized that I’m back where I had left of seven years ago…absolutely nowhere!

In Season Four Episode 13, not only was Carrie friends with an old fling, but she was also back in a relationship with a man who had a million and one questions himself. Charlotte encountered that sometimes a cardboard baby will send anyone into an emotional roller-coaster ride, while Miranda found herself in a maternal disarray. Samantha managed to find the perfect (Dick) Richard, after sleeping with every man in the island of Manhattan, that I can’t help but question; this series isn’t really that far from the truth, now is it?

Women love shoes, and fashion. They love their corporate jobs, and expensive drapes. All the while having the same question:

when it comes to relationships, I couldn’t help but wonder, what are we fighting for?

As I went on to watch the relationship mess unfold right before my eyes (that might portrays some woman’s life out there somewhere) I found an answer for my needs that night, which is that I have manage to fall utterly and completely in love with Sade all over again.  And right now that’s the only answer I really need.

That’s the thing about needs, sometimes when you get them met, you don’t need them anymore.

Monday’s Eye Candy – Steve Jordan!

Steve Jordan has worked with numerous artists from Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, to Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones, but only one artist stands out more than all the rest for me, and that is none other than the virtuoso, John Mayer. Steve joined the John Mayer Trio back in 2005, taking Mayer’s music to all new heights. He produced Continuum alongside John, and ventured off into the world of musical bliss for the next five years, but not before bringing to an end the most beautiful winter tour yet, Battle Studies ’09-’10. He parted ways right before the summer tour began, by letting everyone know that he was going to take a break, due to not wanting to be on a tour bus for the rest of his life… however I’m sure we’ll see more of Steve Jordan sooner than not. He’s just too talented to stay in doors!
