"Most moving Me'shell song"


  

          

Yeah its a cheesy topic, but SO WHAT! Let's not just list songs either folks. Let's talk about it.
What about the song moves you?
What did u think when u first heard the cut?
Does it still move you? Why?

I'll start!

Well this is hard, but I'd have to choose "The Way" from "PEace Beyon Passion". When sister stated:
Maybe Judas was a better man
and Mary made a virgin just to save face
I am so ashamed on bended kness
Prayin' to my pretty white Jesus"

Firs time I hear that, it sent chills down my spine. I mean everyone loves to bash christianity, but damn those lines were potent and touched on the history of using Christainity to club folks to death. To this day this song is one of my favorites. Of course I reserve the right to change my mind and pick another song at a later date..

1. "Fool of Me"
In response to Reply # 0


          

I haven't listened to much of her music, but this one hit me right between the eyes. Dang, got me tearing up at my cubicle now!

To make it short, was involved with someone, but we had to end the relationship amicably, because his small daughter came to live with him and b/c of school for me (plus he worked during the day and I worked at night and we live an hour apart). He was only the second of two men that I've loved and been in love with. I called him about 5 months ago to talk to him and was totally blown off (said he would call me back...ask me have I heard from him). So when I heard parts of that song...

...you no longer have any interest in anything that I have to say...now that we're face to face, you won't look me in the eye...no friendship, no trust, no love...

... it hit pretty hard, which is part of why I don't like to listen to it now. Listening to it is like opening up my heart and looking inside, long and hard.

In response to Reply # 1


  

          

The line, "You say don't touch you/I can't touch you no more/Can't touch you" kills me everytime I hear it.

The last relationship I had ended with almost those same words. "Don't touch me". I have tears in my eyes now just remembering him saying that to me.

27. "Bittersweet & Satisfy"
In response to Reply # 1


          

I know we were asked not to list but personally Me'shell has to be broken down. On a musical level Bittersweet is one of the most complex joints she's written. The music always puts me in a mellow state of mind and at the same time makes me wanna get up and boogie. On a lyrical level I'd have to go with Satisfy. I think it's the most poetic song she's done.
Too bad she's slept on.

"...but with all music (created) by African people, there's a dangerous pattern. We create it, nurture it, elevate it and abandon it"
?uestlove ...things fall apart liner notes

"...music is supposed to inspire...so how come we ain't gettin no higher"..."Superstar" Lauryn Hill

"...we're moving into this electronica shit. If this is the case, then I've got to make some funky ass computers" D'Angelo 1998 XXL interview

Yeah...I gotta admit, the use of that song in "Love and basketball" floored me. Very very very powerful piece of work. In fact, I'd call it the ultimate breakup song...captures the emptiness so well. lyrics are amazing. music just pulls you down. wow. putting the rhythm and the *blues* back into R&B, for real...

Spread love,

This song really touches on some very personal issues for me, therefore I would consider this new song the most moving for me right now. It makes me tingle and shiver when I hear it. I feel tears well in my eyes when I listen to this song.

I went threw that exact situation, so that song does make me cry. And, I love "wasted time". Beautiful


sexual healing: its a good thing

I am wholeheartedly, completely, totally....and anymore words that mean that....in love with my man. We sometimes trip on how it all came about and how soon things happened, but the one thing that WE KNOW is that we truly love each other.
Because of the distance....we only have the devotion, unceasing thoughts, prayers, loyalty, and trust...the true unadulterated love of each other to go by. This is the real essence of a relationship. He is my inspiration for the day.... He is my natural high . Oh yes, I long to touch him beyond other things, but we hold on to each other, knowing that one day God will allow us to be together for good.-LoveJones

Soul Searching (higher learning) THAT was the "making love to" song that year..this is THE ONLY SONG of hers to date (save for faggot and who is he and what is he to you) that gets CRAZY AIRPLAY in ohio...EVEN NOW.

The Teaching (Money Talks soundtrack)


Isolation (hurricane soundtrack)

Let Me Have You (one of the BEST SONGS on the stella soundtrack. that and the caryn wheeler/soul II soul jawns..the rest of the cd SUCKED ASS, IMHO)

Me'shell did this song on Rahzel's CD Called something. The song has very few lyrics but the meoldy and instruments and her voice course hit me in the heart when she says "Everybody wants to steal my soul." I feel her...Love of San Francisco

In response to Reply # 0


          

it has to be her cover of Jimi Hendrix's 'May This Be Love'. This has got to be one of the best cover versions ever done as it is completely different to the original, and the spoken word part is beautiful. It's on the 'bitter' album. She's actually performing in London in a few weeks, but I dont know if I should spend the money to see her. I'd imagine that she would be good live, but does anyone know if she is good in concert?

isn't too big, go see her. Her music translates better in small to medium sized concert halls. She is excellent live, but sometimes the accoustics in the larger places take away from the emotion of her music.

GO see her live. THE best musical performance's I've EVER experienced from ANYONE. ANYONE. Do not miss this chance to see for yourself. You seem to be a fan of Hendrix...well the last time I saw her that's exactly how I felt...like I was experienceing what it must have felt like to see Hendrix in a small club early on in his career before he blew up large. I don't wan't to hype her too much, but she really is that good live. I can confidently say that her studio albums, great as they are, are no where NEAR as impressive as her live performances.

GO...and then let us know what YOU think!


have you listened to
her stuff?

?uest:
hasn't brian mcknight DENIED that they ripped me'shell off for that?? i remember when the song came out and me'shell basically "thanked him" for stealing from her (not in those words, but you get the general point). i do remember brian's team saying that they had that particular song DONE WELL BEOFRE plantation lullabies, i think (i could be wrong). either way, he owes her BIG TIME cause his song did do well when it came out (though, to this day, i don't know WHY....)


hmmm...well, no matter. Me'shell is the shit!

30. "Me'Shell's Version of "Make Me Wanna Holler""
In response to Reply # 0


          

With respect to subject matter, I based my poem "Sunhine" written in 1997 on this song largely because the song provided an impetus for pushing past my own issues with my parents. I too was a military brat living in Germany in the late 1970s and bore witness to the same things Me'Shell expresses in this song. It's funny that she is a featured artist on a site funded by the creater of "One Shine" as well--another of several songs that inspired the same poem.

As soon as I find my poem on one of my disks, I'll post it tomorrow morning.

Peace and Love.

I'd have to go with the latest CD. Fool of Me is so full of emotion. I can feel the pain. It's what I like to call "Soul Stiring." When I heard it in the Love & Basketball film I was like, "Damn Bythewood couldn't have picked a better song for that scene." And the Maxwell song for the love scene was the bomb too. Excellent source music.

In response to Reply # 0


          

I've gotta start by saying everything Me'shell has put out is beautiful, so it's hard to make a decision here...

For 'moving' in an emotional sense I'd have to say "Outside Your Door", just cause that's a song that I can relate to on a personal level more than others.

But now if you want to talk shake-your-booty 'moving': "Shoot'N Up and Gett'n High" is one of my favorites. Especially when her band performs this live.

To the person that asked earlier --- GO TO THE SHOW! I've seen her perform four times since '94 and all of the shows have been incredible. Her band is amazing. Like D'Angelo, Me'shell really needs to put out a live album. It's great because I really love the production on her records, especially her work on the first two albums with David Gamson --- but her songs are incredible live, even better than on cd I'd have to say.

Much love to Okayplayer for selecting Me'shell as featured artist.

MeShell can croon "outside door" make a "fool of me" anytime. It's a shame she's not more recognized for her brillance.
