I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

SUMMERTIME


"Summertime" is a 1991 Grammy Award winning chart topping Hip-Hop/R&B single by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. The hit song spent one week at number-one on the US R&B chart.[1] From the duo's 4th album Homebase, it also reached number one on the Rap Single chart and number four on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached eight on the UK Singles Chart, as well as number forty-one on the dance chart.[2]

It samples Kool & the Gang's "Summer Madness". The song earned the duo's second Grammy after "Parents Just Don't Understand" in 1988. From 1996 to 1998, Children's BBC used the song as their background music (in between programme links). "Summertime" was remixed by DJ Jazzy Jeff himself, with a September 2007 single release. The song was also used in a Wal-mart commercial. The song was used in the intro of NBC's sitcom 1992 special Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style

A line from the song was sampled for Ludacris' song "Two Miles an Hour" from his album The Red Light DistrictWill Smith uses the line was sampled on the single "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" on his Big Willie Stylealbum which was released in 1997.

I chose this song this week because it was SO freaking HOT! But I LOVE the summertime, there is something about it that cannot be compared to anything on this planet. And listening to this song takes me to a place where innocence was the order of the day, a time that I thought would last forever...I guess someways it still does...HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR SUMMERTIME!
