What Artist Said …

Simple As This

What have the artists said about the song? [ Link ]

Jake Bugg talked about this song in a video track-by-track: “That was a strange song because life in general you come across a lot of barriers and sometimes you just want to push through things and just try to find an answer for everything, try in every way, but in the end it’s not that simple.”

Babyface

There are some things in life one never forgets.

Inclusive where one was when a Babyface came on the Radio.

I vividly remember my first Face’s song.

It is Two occasion ( here ) :-

I only think of you on two occasions.

 That is Day and Night.

I will go for broke if I could be with you.

The band’s name is “The Deele”.

In the next album, made under his own name, he made it clear it was not a broke kind of love.

He said he will go to work. Come home and cook dinner soon as he gets home from work.

The song’s name is “Soon as I get home” and a copy is here.

It’s not that you require a lot
Just need some tender love and care
I give good love
I’ll buy your clothes
I’ll cook your dinner too
Soon as I get home from work
I’ll pay your rent
Your faithful lover
And I’ll never lie
For all that it’s worth

A few weeks ago, I came across a short clip ( Link ) featuring him, Tracy, their son, and Neon Deion.

And, that is when it suddenly hit me.

This guy is for real.
It was not just a song.
It is not just a song.
It is a life lived.
A living life.

At the time I first heard, it was an access card to give a voice to the way I was feeling about my teenage love.

When young, while young, one thinks feeling is enough.

So many years later, this man is still here, modeling that it does not need to stay an access card.

It does not have to stay youthful curiosity.

It could be a lived live.

Not Fab 5 Freedy.

Yo homey, I thought it was just a song.

My very BAD.

Soul Ties – Personal Reflection

Background

I wanted to place more context around a recent blog post.

Lineage

  1. Paris Milan, Social Commentator
    Link

Through the Bible

The Life of a Patriarch

  1. Adam and Eve
    • but for Adam there was not found an help mate for him.
      ( Genesis 2:20 )
    • And the man said: “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for out of man she was taken.”
      ( Genesis 2:23 )
  2. Abraham
    • Abraham, Sarah, and Abimelech
      • Abraham replied, “I thought to myself, ‘Surely there is no fear of God in this place. They will kill me on account of my wife.’
        Besides, she really is my sister, the daughter of my father— though not the daughter of my mother— and she became my wife.
        So when God had me journey from my father’s house, I said to Sarah, ‘This is how you can show your loyalty to me: Wherever we go, say of me: He is my brother.’”…
  3. Isaac
    • One day Abraham said to his oldest servant, the man in charge of his household, “Take an oath by putting your hand under my thigh. Swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and earth, that you will not allow my son to marry one of these local Canaanite women. Go instead to my homeland, to my relatives, and find a wife there for my son Isaac.
      ( Genesis 24:2-4 )
    • He will send his angel ahead of you, and he will see to it that you find a wife there for my son. If she is unwilling to come back with you, then you are free from this oath of mine. But under no circumstances are you to take my son there.”
  4. Esau
    • When Esau was forty years old, he married Judith daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and also Basemath daughter of Elon the Hittite.
      They were a source of grief to Isaac and Rebekah.
      ( Genesis 26:34-35 )
  5. Jacob
    • Then Rachel and Leah replied, “Do we still have any share in the inheritance of our father’s estate? 
      Does he not regard us as foreigners? Not only has he sold us, but he has used up what was paid for us.
       
      Surely all the wealth that God took away from our father belongs to us and our children. So do whatever God has told you.”
      ( Genesis 31:14-16 )
  6. Dinah
    • And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me, to make me odious to the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and, I being few in number, they will gather themselves together against me and smite me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house
      And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with a harlot?
      ( Genesis 34:30-31 )

 

Quick Take

These are people called by God.

Waiting within a promise.

And, you know what they do?

They hide themselves, hide their relationships, conceal themselves around the locals.

Understand their fewness.

How many times did Abraham give away his own wife?

Seeking suitable mates among their own.  Yet, held hostage within same.

 

Dedicated

Dedicated to my home girl, Paris Milan.

I came across flippant.

Yet, took to heart her summary of what it costs to have poor dating choices.

It appears that the Patriarchs who saw and heard from God were just as suspicious.

Not every thing can be untied.

Song

Drake – Do Not Disturb
Link

Lyrics

All the things you need
You still want problems though

Distractions will do you in the truest sense
Especially people that wanna lecture me
And frame it like they just want the best for me
Or they check for me
Whatever splits it up
So there’s more for them and less for me

There’s real ones around me
I want to make sure they learn from me

 

The One With Me

…. as some deal with disturbance better than others.

Let us get real
And, keep it real

The one with me
Fine as Fuck
Yes, she still duck
Be the First to Jet
And, say she don’t need that

Jordyn, Will, and Jada

Jordyn

Jordan: Derived from the Hebrew yarden (to flow down, descend).
The name was originally used in the Middle Ages for a child baptized in holy water said to be from the river Jordan.

 

Will & Jordyn

I didn’t think I’d be coming to the table like this, but it’s the best place to be,” Woods told Will, who she refers to as uncle.

“That table has mythological cleansing and healing powers,” Will said, positive as ever as he spoke to her. “I would have loved to be there, there’s a lot of things about our relationship to our family. Jordy’s father worked on ‘Fresh Prince’ before she was born. I know how hard it was for you and your family when he passed.”

I had a deep sense that we would be here one day and what I want to say to you is that the world attacks, it just happens,” he continued. “You’ll never get around the world attacking, but I want you to know that you are supported and I got you and we got you.”

After Woods said his message meant “the world” to her, he gave one final piece of advice. “I would say take your medicine and tell your truth, this is a part of what growing up is,” he told her. “This is a part of what learning is, a part of what family is. This world is not going to break you, we won’t allow it.

He signed off saying he loved her.

Short Commentary

There is nothing better reflective of your relationship with God other than how you see people.  What you wish for them.  And, how you will it.
