    Allyuh feel to help a sister out with ah dotish assignment?

    Yuh see I'm taking this music class as an elective and I love it bad! It's just doing this tedious blasted assignment that I jus can't take. Anyway I have to do a listening journal of songs btwn the years of 1970-1990, so far I'm doing well but lawd ah need help, so I'm turning to the fam

    Sooooo if any of you are bored and feel to help here's what to do. From the songs that I list below, type/write whatever comes to mind when listening to the song, a reflection, what u like/dislike about the melody, instrumentation, flow anything! it doesn't have to be long a paragraph or two. Now the reason why I'm asking for help is I have to do 125 songs in 25 pages and I don't have the same drive I did for last semesters journals. and it due on Wednesday...doh worry I gettin alot done:)
    Here are a couple songs to start, if yuh helpin don't all do the same song:)

    Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – Diana Ross
    ABC – Jackson Five
    The Love You Save – Jackson Five
    Never Can Say Goodbye – Jackson Five
    Kung Fu Fighting – Carl Douglas
    I’m So in Love with You – Al Greene
    Killing me Softly – Roberta Flack
    You are the Sunshine of my Life – Stevie Wonder
    I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor
    Rapper’s Delight – Sugar Hill Gang

    Thanks in advance to those who decide to help me, you can pm me if u don't want to type your response here, but jus say what song yuh doin thaaaaaaanks

    Someone asked so here are samples of a simple and in depth(blabbing on) entry respectively:

    Theme from Shaft – Isaac Hayes


    Love, love, love this song. Whenever it comes on all I picture is a bald-headed Isaac Hayes wearing all black with his shades. This has got to be one of the best instrumentation songs of all time. The cymbals or whatever it is at the beginning along with the electric guitar throughout the song sound so hype! He didn’t even need to put any words in this song. He could have left out the ‘shaft’ that is sung towards the end and it would have been equally great. I can’t sit still when hearing this song. This is definitely another one of my favourite oldies by far.

    I Feel for You – Chaka Khan

    This song is a fast paced song in which Chaka Khan shows true diversity and flexibility with what she can do as an artist and shines. The collaboration of the melody and the harmony is what makes the song sound so good. The chorus is very simple and predictable which in this case is good as more of the club-type of crowd can identify with it and sing along while dancing to it. The high voice tone in the chorus also stands out and enables the song to have a sound that is futuristic all together. This song talks about how much she loves her man/ partner seven days of the week. All in all, her voice does show true commitment, which is desirable to hear from and see in my eyes.

    I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor

    Very funky and alive.. Althought she is talking about a broken up relationship you can hear in her voice the new redemption and new beginings.. The beat complements her voice and the drums in the background add that extra energy that helps bring across the message... I always felt that when listening to this song you can become invisible and feel like you flying on a bird's wings...

    Im Coming Out - Diana Ross

    Some of you maybe too young to remember but this is the original to Mase and P. Diddy remix of the same tune.. This original is not only bouncing with energy it also has the kind of defiance that speaks on many levels.. It was in a time where there were alot of emotional issues and alot of personal evolution in people and in the world. The horns blare in the background and the guitarist spanks the strings as if to she you that they are coming out and to be proud..
