Lyrics to "I Get To Love You" song by Ruelle: One look at you; my whole life falls in line I prayed for you; before I called you mine Oh I, can't I kept getting stuck because I wanted it to be perfect. Luckily my friend Matt Bronleewe (who.
If you’re sure that the flirting is mutual rather than just your wishful thinking, there’s a reason for her hesitancy, a reason she’s keeping you in the friend zone. Your challenge is to find a way to have a comfortable, open conversation about why she continues to flirt back but won’t take your relationship forward.
Do you discuss important life issues with her (or is conversation all just fluff)? Does she share her secrets and important personal information about herself? Have you done the same? If not, work on deepening your relationship trust and forget about what you “call” your relationship for now. Trust is critical.
Women need to feel valued as human beings—smart, funny, capable, generous, creative, hard-working, kind, talented, etc. So often young women, in particular, are valued primarily for their attractiveness. Make sure she knows what you appreciate about her. (Maybe if your mutual flirting progresses it can include touching her hand or shoulder when you talk to her, but only if it’s welcome.) As your relationship becomes more relaxed and open, you’ll be able to have a more open discussion about what is holding her back. I can think of some possibilities, but they may or may not apply to your friend:
a) she’s doesn’t want to lose your friendship if your love connection doesn’t work out
b) you’re rushing things, or she’s not ready for a dating relationship
c) something in your past dating history makes her uncomfortable (perhaps you’ve dated a friend of hers, dated a lot of girls, cheated on someone or treated them poorly, etc.)
d) she likes someone else and doesn’t know how to tell you
e) the flirting is just a fun game with you and she doesn’t mean to imply there ever will be a next step relationship-wise or sexually (OUCH – this is what you fear, isn’t it?).
Although you may fear rejection, it’s much better to know than always wonder, “What if?” We have ALL liked, been attracted to, and even loved people who haven’t felt the same way. Pursue the matter with your friend until you get an answer that either delights or disappoints, and honor her decision either way.
"Theresa, I know there's a part of you that believes you can change someone, I appreciate what you're trying to do, but it's not what I need right now. "Loving someone and having them love you back is the most precious thing in the world. The best we can hope for in life is that it doesn't happen for a long, long time.".
“American history wells up when Aretha sings,” said no less an authority than President Barack Obama.
The vocal achievements of Aretha Franklin have informed much of modern soul, gospel, R&B, dance music and especially rock. Beyoncé considers Franklin’s voice “one of God’s blessings.” Said Mary J. Blige, “When it comes to expressing yourself through song, there is no one who can touch her. She is the reason why women want to sing.” Patti Labelle described Franklin simply as “the best singer in the world.”
Franklin’s powerful instrument can be heard across a recording career that spans nearly 60 years. On the Columbia sides of the early Sixties, she laid into standards like then-current stars Sinatra or Nat King Cole, rivaling her backing orchestras for sheer power. Her classic Sixties and Seventies sides soundtracked the Civil Rights Movement, an object lesson in how a singer can embody and define her time. As poet Nikki Giovanni wrote, Franklin “lifted her voice in question and complaint and why not and we’re going to and voiced the needs of a generation.”
From there, Franklin found homes across genres: not just a testament to the versatility of her music, but to how the world had been shaped by it. Early Eighties collaborations with Luther Vandross were a smooth slide into funk-pop and quiet storm, a mid-Eighties New Wave makeover made her an MTV star and a Eurythmics collaborator, hip-hop groups like EPMD and Gang Starr mined her funky Seventies work for beats, 1994’s “A Deeper Love” made her a chart-topping modern house diva, a collaboration with Lauryn Hill linked her neo-soul and by 2014 she gracefully covered Adele. Here’s just 50 essential songs from the greatest voice pop music has ever produced.
Rap's sad robot is adorably head over heels in love with his dream girl. The problem? He hasn't met her.
"I wanna tell the world about you just so they could get jealous
And if you see her before I do tell her I wish that I met her."
No lovey-dovey playlist would be complete without the prince of love rap songs, Ja Rule. The Vita-assisted "Put It on Me" was a ubiquitous hit during Ja's 2000s reign.
After his split from Jennifer Lopez, Diddy made his 2002 "I Need a Girl" cry:
"I had a girl that woulda died for me
Didn't 'preciate her so I made her cry for me
Every night she had tears in her eyes for me
Caught a case, shorty took the whole ride for me."
After two verses of self-congratulatory rhymes, Kane "takes a few minutes to mellow out" and salute the ladies: "You're best scooped like ice cream," he cheers. "Smooth Operator" is the closest we'll ever get to a Big Daddy Kane love song.
"Renee" is a tragic tale of love lost, made even more tragic by the death of Lost Boyz emcee/promoter Freaky Tah in 1999.
Big Boi and Andre 3000 came up in a misogynistic rap climate, but they had no problem expressing affection for women, or saying sorry. Their standout "Miss Jackson," for instance, found them apologizing to a baby mama's mama. The same album spawned "Slum Beautiful," a sleeper tune that dotes on the ghetto fabulous.
Forget dinner and a date, M-A-Dollar-Sign-E is giving you the key to his pad:
"In a year or two, girl, I could see you with my kids
Girl, you make a thug want to get a legal gig
It's only right we spend our lonely nights
Gettin' crazy biz till we awake the kids."
"One love, one love, you're lucky just to have one loooove." Yes, those are the actual lyrics. You're more likely to find Big Foot than a mainstream rap song with a similar message today. Still, this song has survived over the years, thanks to Nas' 1994 version of the same name. As further proof of the song's lasting power, the phrase "one love" is now considered hip-hop lingo. It's a true classic.
Her royal Barbieness found some hip-pop flexibility on this Annie Lennox-inspired smash. It marked a rare moment of vulnerability for Minaj:
"You're like a candy store and I'm a toddler
You got me wantin' more."
Drizzy used this summer smash to describe his ideal woman: "Sweatpants, hair tied, chillin' with no make up on." This song caught fire and sent Drake to the top of the charts. And that was before he even signed a major deal.
Wale is a ladies' man. Miguel is a ladies' man. Put them on the same track and the outcome is a heartwarming collaboration. In one live performance of "Lotus Flower Bomb," Wale almost got trampled by a stampede of adoring ladies rushing toward the stage.
Are you into good conversation? Do you like herbal tea? Are you a fan of poetry? Then you're the girl M-1 and Stic.man had in mind when they wrote the appropriately titled "Mind Sex."
Long before Future told us to "Turn on the Lights," LL Cool J hit the streets in search of his own around-the-way girl:
"I want a girl with extensions in her hair
Bamboo earrings, at least two pair."
Not your standard groupie love fare, De La's candy-coated "Eye Know" over lush samples (notably from Otis Redding's "(Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay") made it cool to declare sweet affection for that special someone without sounding corny.
Sometimes playful, sometimes treacly, "Brown Skin Lady" is always beautiful. Cocoa butter sales probably spiked after Kweli rapped, "Your skin is the inspiration for cocoa butter." Smooth.
Most love songs entail guys teasing girls with wild promises. 50 Cent turned the tables on "21 Questions," which takes the form of a relationship interview. "I'm asking questions to find out how you feel inside," he raps. And you can't question the genius of "I love you like a fat kid loves cake." After dropping that line, Fif went on to bag Vivica Fox, Ciara, and Chelsea Handler.
It's just a fly love song. Common spits game to his lady and vows to "do the best that I can do, cause I'm at my best when I'm with you." What girl doesn't want to be told, "I see the God in you"? The music video wasn't too shabby, either.
Hip-hop has a soft side, and you don't have to wait till Valentine's Day to wade into the waters of romance. Just pull your special someone closer and let the music lead you. Start with these 25 greatest rap love songs:
I love your quiet strength, and your desire to do right. You have such a love for others, and your example makes me want to be the best that I can be. You can.
Breaking up is hard to do. Sorry, let us rephrase that…
Breaking up is a horrifying pain in the ass. And yes, you can get by with a little help from your friends. Or you can drown your sorrows with buckets and buckets of clichés: ice cream, potato chips and/or chocolate. Or better yet: ice cream mixed with chocolate-covered potato chips. Don't knock it.
But what you need, what you really need to get through a breakup is an anthem. You need that one song that gives you comfort when all you want to do is cocoon yourself in blankets and pillows in an effort to keep the pain out. And since pretty much every person on this planet will go through a breakup at one time or another, we've rounded up the best breakup songs we could find to help ease the transition from in love to "I want to die." Some of the tunes are old faithfuls, while others might be something you haven't heard before. Either way, we know that you'll find what you're looking for somewhere on this list.
31 Love Songs You Listened To In The Late '90s Lyrics you wrote in your notebook: "When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am" "I look at you looking at me, now I know why they say the best things are free" .
