INSPIRATIONAL CORNER – FOXX / LOGGINS / FRANKLIN / MARLEY

Welcome to the INSPIRATIONAL CORNER, where we aim to lift your spirits, put a smile on your face, put a tingle in your heart, and sometimes a tear of joy in your eye.  Our featured songs of INSPIRATION for this month’s issue of NO SKIPS NO SCRATCHES are songs that set you into varying moods; all INSPIRING you to get up from your doldrums and tear yourself away from that eternal pity party, dust off your closeted “Pimp Walk” and aggressively stride on to seek a better day born out of a better way.  I hope you’re in a place where you can turn the volume up and let yourself be surrounded and immersed into that marvelous state of becoming one with each carefully constructed musical note and each perfectly placed poetic lyric.  Just let yourself go… go to that place that your grownup lifestyle doesn’t often let you go anymore… far, far away into Music Wonderland.  Let these songs of INSPIRATION melt your mind into a puddle of peaceful indulgence… if only for a few moments… keeping in mind that you are fully allowed to hit the RE-PLAY button as often as your heart desires.  Enjoy!

LOVE:  JAMIE FOXX – “WHEN I FIRST SAW YOU” (from Dreamgirls Soundtrack)

“When I first saw you, I said ‘Oh my, that’s my dream.’”

 HOPE:  KENNY LOGGINS – “WAIT A LITTLE WHILE”

Whenever you find there’s a cold December wind in front of you,
“Wait a little while to welcome what you’re after, give it the time to find its way to you.
As soon as you no longer try, you’ll turn and find it standing by your side.
Come and get it, when you let it, it’ll come to you.”

 FAITH:  ARETHA FRANKLIN – “WHOLY HOLY” 

“Jesus left a long time ago, said he would return.  He left us a book to believe in,
in it we’ve got an awful lot to learn.  Oh, wholy holy.”

ENCOURAGEMENT:  BOB MARLEY & THE WAILERS – “JAMMIN’”

“Jam’s about my pride and truth I cannot hide to keep you satisfied.
True love that now exists is the love I can’t resist so Jam by my side.”
