    The Lofa Below: Valentine’s Day Mixtape – Day.Two 

    Michael McDonald – I Keep Forgetting

    If you haven’t caught on from the first post, this series of songs will focus on longing and being oh so close to someone, but not being able to get them to be your Valentine.  It’s like part therapy, part “I want to see how many songs I can fit in this theme” exercise.

    Now, by itself, this song is pretty badass.  I mean, Michael McDonald is only one of a handful of white guys that have the ghetto hall pass.  This song has been sampled by a ton of people, most notably by Warren G and Nate Dogg on the classic “Regulators.”

    But the song has that feeling of longing and heartache behind the dope bassline and the organ melody.  I keep forgetting that we’re not in love anymore.  I keep forgetting that it’s never gonna be the same again.  To love and lose at love is a bitter pill to swallow.  It’s just that Michael McDonald makes the medicine go down a lot easier.

    The Lofa Below: Valentine’s Day Mixtape – Day.One 

    So, a few weeks ago, @Lofa hits me off with an idea to do a mixtape series where I, along with Kavet the Catalyst, Shaun Castro, Lofa, and Nicole from Prototype are coming up with our ultimate Valentine’s Day playlist.  One song a day, for the next 14 days.  Now, since the Super Bowl was yesterday, I didn’t have an opportunity to start, but I’ll be posting one song/video for the next two weeks.

    I personally don’t know how the others are doing it, but I’m going with this approach: I’ll post a YouTube of the song in question, give a description, and hopefully, get some positivity going for Valentine’s Day.

    The first song I’m starting this playlist with is Lisa Shaw – Grown Apart.  Now, most peoples don’t know this song, but if you watch America’s Best Dance Crew last year, you would know that Kaba Modern did a little something to this in the third or fourth week  (Correction, it was the second week.  Thanks, Ian. — Mister J: All Day.)  I wish I could find the video of that performance, but in the mean time, here’s the song.
