Anyone who grew up in the 80’s, are familiar with New Edition. For every child in that era, who grew up in the urban scene, they provided the soundtrack for our maturation process. Even today, when I hear “Did you get it yet,” I can’t help but smile. It evokes memories of my first kiss, from a little red-bone girl whose name will forever escape me. I just remember, how I felt the day she did it, right in the mouth, I was extremely young and it was a moment that has forever shaped, my adult life. The electricity ran through my body, it was like I stuck my finger in a light socket. I’ve far matured from the point, where I would’ve used another analogy but it wouldn’t be apporopriate for this article. Anyway, the sound of their young music still harnesses the child in all of us, if you hear it.
Tyler Just something I noticed in The Guy also you state in the overview of the GUIOPERA format that each PART of a chapter is set soundtrack in a different location yet in The Guy that seems to have gone out the window.
With this mix, the best in R&B are represented from Aretha Franklin to Mary J. Blige. The songs are a good combination of oldies and some new. The best thing is that after listening to this mix a few times, something will resonate with you. A hook or some lyrics will repeat over and over in your head until oblivion. And, isn’t it true that what you think about all the time actually comes to fruition?
The final track, “Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy” from “Ren and Stimpy,” performed by Wax, was a great choice. The song embodies the emotions one gets from listening to this disc. It should be noted that several of these theme songs did not come from a cartoon, but from puppet shows. This is only gripe with the disc. Puppet shows are great, but they are not cartoons, and should ‘not be on a compilation that calls itself cartoons’ greatest hits.
Women have to view black men as computers. When they consider getting involved with a black man, they need to find out what programs the model of their computer comes loaded with. Ideally, you want a computer that’s equipped with the programs that cater to your needs, enable you to execute your daily functions, and fulfills your desires.
It was right around that time that Simon was reading one of the radio trade journals. This particular issue had an article on future trends in radio programming. One of the radio personnel interviewed actually said something like, “Well, we’re not going to be playing people like Paul Simon anymore.” And Simon read that! He later said that you try to de-personalize such a statement. Unfortunately, human nature being what it is, you can’t de-personalize something like that beyond a certain point when they say it about you!
Then it hit me that it was a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song.” I quickly hopped on Google to find out who this version was by, and seconds before the answer appeared before me on my television set, Google had the answer. It was by Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails and Atticus Ross, who collaborated with Reznor on The Social Network Soundtrack.
Your company’s culture holds a lot of power. Listen to what it’s saying. If it’s getting your organization to dance, that’s great. Otherwise, it may be time to switch to a different soundtrack so you can use your unique organizational culture to gain a competitive advantage.
