Me'shell Ndegeocello

Tuesday, August 3, 2010
I'm back today to say that I fell in love with Me'shell Ndegeocello.

I discovered her last year when I was mending my broken heart; which was also what made me start this blog. "Fool of Me" was the song that made her debut on my emotions. Yeah I was having one of those moments where I felt like a complete fool. You know. When you love someone who clearly doesn't love you back but you come up with every excuse in the book that he'll come around...

Anyway, "Fool of Me" which I heard from "Love & Basketball" became my very own lullaby. She made me feel human. At that time, it never occured to me though to check out her other songs. Maybe I wasn't ready.

Today I decided to check her out again and WOW OMG she's incredible. Incredible is not a strong enough word to describe her. She's the epitome of what Maya Angelou calls a "Phenomenal Woman". And she has eight albums... If there are any Me'shell Ndegeocello fans who are reading this, please guide me. Where do I start? Which albums should I listen to first? I'm on a budget so I can't buy all at once so I highly appreciate anyone leaving me a comment...just wow


I relate so much to "Wasted Time"





 Wasted Time

You rarely notice but I hang on your every word
Everything you say
You are much too busy to notice me
You turn and walk away
Into anothers arms hopeless ashamed
I wish I could hold you that way
Brokenhearted I dream for you to notice me

Wasted time on loving you wasted time
Wasted time on someone
Who wont love you as much as I
As much as I as much as I as much as I

In my fantasy you are asleep beside me
I feel you breathe
If only I could be there for you
The one that you make love to

Wasted time on loving you wasted time
Wasted time on someone
Who wont love you as much as I
As much as I as much as I as much as I

You rarely notice but I hang on your every word
Everything you say
You are much too busy to notice me
You turn and walk away
Into anothers arms hopeless ashamed
I wish I could hold you that way
Brokenhearted I dream for you to notice me

Thank you thank you thank you so much. I will definitely check those out. I picked up "Bitter" yesterday and I'm glad that I know who she is now, but mad that it took so long lol.
