Am I the only person that thinks D'angelo played himself by attempting to be creative and unique when he decided to call the "how does it feel" jawn, "Untitled (How does it feel)". Honestly, is it really necessary to call the track "Untitled". The idea just comes off as a forced attempt to be different and its pretty transparent. Dont get me wrong, as an artist he reserves the right to title his songs as he sees fit, but in this case it just seems unnecessary and lame. Case in point, SV has their own track called "Untitled" however, in their case the "untitled" label is fitting and appropriate for the following reasons:
1. The guys are not tackling any particular subject matter in their lyrical content.
2. The song has no chorus or hook.
3. It just feels and sounds like one of those songs that was conceived through pure improvisation and spontaneity. (They probably completed the track and said, "hey guys, what do you wanna call this one?"
D'angelo's "Untitled" contains none of the aforementioned elements. Furthermore, the song is a damn Prince remake, which means he had a preconceived, premeditated notion of the song's direction and how it would be executed. So, what posessed him to attach the "Untiled" prefix? Will someone please explain it to me.
In my opinion, the only justifiable excuse for D' making such a HERBTASTIC song title is if Prince's original included the same "Untitled" prefix (In which case, all blame would be removed from D' and placed on Prince)
Thats all, Gooday
Question: Why does Common insist on making anti-gay remarks and references in his songs when his new style of dress is about as feminine as one can get without being in drag. (See Ghetto Heaven video) And was I the only one that anticipated a hotter remix than we actually got) Uggrghh, the song and video is just unbearable. Give me your feedback
