Favorite Song


            My favorite song in the whole world would have to be “Hey Lover” from LL Cool J’s .
             1995 album titled, “Mr. Smith.” The song is a pleasant collaboration of Mr. Smith and Boyz .
             II Men. I love the way the song immediately grabs you on the opening note of the jazzy .
             guitar. Followed by the melodic voices of Boyz II Men, you instantly get into a relaxed and .
             laid back mood. .
             In the song, LL Cool J raps about how he falls victim of a serious crush on a lady in his .
             neighborhood. He is very graphic in explaining this crush and you will soon find yourself .
             reminiscing about the crush or two you’ve had in the past (or present). I can remember a .
             crush I had in 12th grade whenever I hear the song.
             The music of the record is comprised of a jazz guitar, which riffs a melancholy note .
             every 10 seconds. The electric bass guitar deeply hums a soulful note in the background. .
             Percussion is the lifeline of the song and keeps a sleek but steady pace throughout the song. .
             Add the rhythmic voices of Boyz II Men and the sensitive, smooth, but confident voice and .
             lyrics of LL Cool J and you have a masterpiece.
             I have many favorites but this one in particular is great because it is one of the few .
             rap/r&b collaborations that is on my favorites list. I am a true lover of music. I hear not only .
             music or words, but I feel the music. That’s what’s important.
