    I have that song. Great cut. In fact I have all of the songs mentioned in this and the other

    It wasn't a genre at all earlier in the history of American popular music. Talking, speaking
    i.e. "rapping" was a common technique in a lot of music decades before hip hop was born.
    It often...

    Nice list from Martha but I really don't find anything really eclectic about it. It's nothing
    outside of what one hear on a classic R&B/Soul broadcast. I could see if it mixed other
    genres. Even...

    Yea, sure I believe Barack compiles these lists himself but I have to say they are not
