I’m trying something a bit different this year and compiling a playlist of some of my favorite songs to listen to when I’m in the mood for love. The list is not exhaustive, but these are some of my favorites. Some of the choices may seem a bit odd. For instance, I chose Raheem DeVaughn’s “B.O.B.” as a track, but there’s a reason behind it (and it’s not just that I prefer actual human-to-human sexual contact to sex toys). Also, I chose UGK and OutKast’s “International Player’s Anthem,” not because it’s a real love song but it brings me back to the days when I first met Lady Speed at UMD. However, they’re classics in their own right/classics in the making. Check it out below, love someone (and/or yourself) today and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
