Ok…I don't post music to often. But I just watched Erykah Badu’s new video and love it. She did this in Downtown Dallas where JFK got assassinated years ago.

Just watch. Love her. This is my new

"MIND MUSIC" for work. Tanna, you ready?


I am a lyrics girl...if you cant understand her words. Read them...ahhhhh
Help me somebody!

(WINDOW SEAT)

so, presently i’m standing
here right now
you’re so demanding
tell me what u want from me
concluding
concentrating on my music , lover , and my babies
makes me wanna ask the lady for a ticket outta town…
so can i get a window seat
don’t want nobody next to me
i just want a ticket outta town
a look around
and a safe touch down
window seat
don’t want nobody next to me
i just want a chance to fly
a chance to cry
and a long bye bye..
but i need u to want me
need you to miss me
i need your attention
i need you next me
i need someone to clap for me
i need your direction
somebody say come back
come back baby come back
i want u to need me
come back come back baby come back
come back come back baby come back
come back come back baby come back
so, in my mind i’m tusslin’
back and forth ‘tween here and hustlin’
i don’t wanna time travel no mo
i wanna be here
i’m thinking
on this porch i’m rockin’
back and forth light lightning hopkins
if anybody speak to scotty
tell him beam me up..
so can i get a window seat
don’t want nobody next to me
i just want a ticket outta town
a look around
and a safe touch down
window seat
don’t want nobody next to me
i just want a chance to fly
a chance to cry
and a long bye bye..
but i need you to miss me
need somebody come get me
need your attention
need your energy yes i do
need someone to clap for me
need your affection
somebody say come back
come back baby come back
i want u to need me
come back come back baby come back
come back come back baby come back
come back come back baby come back
but can i get a window seat
don’t want nobody next to me
i just want a ticket outta town
a look around
and a safe touch down…
i just need a chance to fly
a chance to cry
and a long
bye bye……..

I've always loved Erykah Badu. I'm so happy she has decided to make a full comeback. And is it just me or is homegirl's body bangin!

loving the new album and the video is so freakin' fabulous!

Brooke said...

I love Erykah and I have heard so much about this video and how THEY wanted to pull it because she is "Mocking" JFK at the end and how it is not appropriate for children.

One guy called her a piece of CRAP! for mocking JFK!

Shame....we say anything these days...
I stll love the song and her music

Diva Style said...

Some people just don't get Erykah, but I LOVE her! She's a Pisces like me, and I freaking LOVE her music and linear thought processes! She's in a league all her own.
