I wish people still wrote songs like this. A love song filled with gratitude. Whenever I listen to it, I end up screaming the chorus with my arms raised above my head. My roommates have learned that I will sing to them on my knees when this song comes on. It’s super-fun to live with me.
Someone once asked me why I love slowjams so much. At the time, I didn’t quite have the words. I think I said something like “why not?” which doesn’t answer the question. I love them because they feel real in ways that a lot of music just doesn’t anymore. To me, good, honest love songs feel human. Of course, a lot of music feels human when it’s honest. Love songs, though, carry a certain emotional vulnerability that is at best subtle in other types of songs. I want to be affected by the music and love songs do just that.
