Aaliyah by Orkideh84 Aaliyah by Orkideh84
I haven't been listening R&B for such a long time, because most of today's music are fucking garbage and that was until I saw my old single CD of Aaliyah.

Aaliyah Dana Haughton was born on January 16, 1979, in Brooklyn, New York and has in her early teenager decided to go for music career.

She who sang like a angel, died by air-plane crash in 2001 and she was at the time just 22 years old. First time after so many years, I had been listening the older R&B music and Aaliyah's hit songs before her death were one of them. Favourite songs; "Try again" "More than a woman" and "We need a resolution" and I still love her songs after so many years after her death!

Beside "Try again" was the main music for the movie "Romeo must Die" and she also were part of this movie and has also been acting in some movies, but none of these were as famous as "Romeo must die".

She looks great! I remember hearing she had died, I was in the garage(now our flat) playing table tennis when I heard it on the radio.

Very short life, but memory about her will live in hearts of people who love her songs. I like her eyes, they looks a little sad.

Minns när jag hörde nyheten att hon dött. Blev lite deppig men tyvärr händer olyckor, vare sig man vill eller inte. Men det var tråkigt att hon inte fick chansen att göra mer av sitt liv. RIP Aaliya.

Jo vars, väntade på Centralen i en halvtimme men ingen kom eller var där. :( Jag kan ju i och försig ha gått till fel plats när jag tänker efter. :shrug: men men...
Åkte till Liseberg själv då jag ändå var där. Igentligen tur att man inte åkte nåt då det var mycket folk där och långa köer till ALLT, mest till bankomaterna och vatten attracktionerna. :P
Jag spelade lite och köpte Popcorn och snacks, lite godis och klubbor. Så nu har jag tills slutet av juli på klubbfronten. :D

den äldre typen av hiphop och R&B är rätt bra faktiskt...då hade texterna själ och hjärta iallafall. inte "money and the bitches" skräpet som vi hör idag >.<

Jepp, det var tider det, det är då de flesta gamla hiphop och R&B hade budskap! :( Så jävla synd att hiphop och R&B sjönk på botten för inte så värst länge sedan.

nu är det mest metall som tar budskap på allvar (bland populärmusiken).

men ja, den kan mycket väl också gå neråt =S
