Oh MY GAWD…..It’s My Birthday!!


Nope…I can’t. I’ve been looking forward to this day for a couple years now — unfortunately, my big plans on being in New Orleans didn’t happen, but I’m not letting that ruin my special day — nope. Anyway, the DC Jazz Festival is going to take care of regrets of not being there, especially with my favs Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Rebirth Brass Band and Brass-A-Holics performing that week. It’s like they brought New Orleans to me — thank you, guys.

Anyway…..I hope you all enjoyed my list of 39 of my fav songs, and I’m assuming you want to know the one song that was running through my head when I woke up this morning…..

40. Return of the Mack — Mark Morrison

Ok….first of all — this song is the perfect example of why New York Undercover, actually Thursday nights on Fox, was everything to a generation. That show brought us songs like Return of the Mack, Tootsie Roll, and Tell Me What You Like. We got to see performances of Mary J. Blige, Teena Marie, Aaliyah, Johnny Gill, Tito Puente…I could go on — thanks to David Wolf (yep, THAT David Wolf), and Andre Harrell — New York Undercover was a music junkie’s dream.

Also — I honestly believe that when one turns 40, well specifically a woman, you just don’t give a f*ck, and this song pretty much sums up the mentality of us who are making things happen. So, apparently, my inner-psyche decided to give me some extra swagger…..this has officially been added back into my into my playlist for at least the rest of the summer.

So — Happy Birthday to me!!! I can’t wait to hook up some some of my crew later and for the insanity to start.
