Memories: Songs I Still Love

In my last post on manhood I talked about the issue I had with music. Now here are a few songs that I love to listen to with the passing of time.

Ofra Haza - Im Nin'Alu

Patrice Rushen - Remind Me

The Ofra Haza song, I think I heard this in a different version.

Hey Miriam. This is one of the remix versions. Also, almost every Teimani compilation CD has a version of Im Ninalu. Whether it be Daqlon, Tzion Golan, Yoav Kohen, etc.

Hi Ehav,

I like Patrice Rushen too. I have about 5 of her songs on itunes.

Hey MDC,

Yes I like her music and the fact that she is still very well for herself. She plays a number of instruments.

She became the first woman to serve as head composer/musical director for the Grammy Awards and the Emmy Awards, the first woman to serve as musical director for the NAACP Image Awards broadcast, an honor she held for twelve consecutive years. Rushen has been the only woman to be a musical director/composer for the People's Choice Awards, HBO's Comic Relief and the only woman musical director/conductor/arranger for a late-night television talk show, The Midnight Hour which aired on CBS.

In addition, Rushen was named musical director/composer for Newsweek's first American Achievement Awards, broadcast on CBS from the Kennedy Center and she served as the musical director for Janet Jackson's World Tour, "janet."

This is the kind of artist story I like to hear.
