Yeah, I like Mary. I'm the "Different World" generation so I still like her stuff from the early and mid 90's when I was in college.

By the way, the response that you had for my Barry post was very passionate and lucid. You're a smart woman. That's a very nice quality. I hope that all is well. Have a great weekend!

I am so glad you are back. I havent heard the CD but I will buy it this weekend and let youknow. My girl mary lived a bit of time in my hometown of Savannah so I KNOW she represents!

Is her cd that tight? For real. Girl, I have it but I haven't listened to it. I am going to listen to it this weekend.

Brother Stephen if still loving Mary's music from the early and mid 90's makes you part of the "Differnt World" generation then my brother I am also apart of that generation.
I have always loved Mary!

Sing with me brother...
"We are lovers true and through And though we made it through the storm
I really want you to realize I really want to put you on
I've been searching for someone To satisfy my every need
Won't you be my inspiration Be the real love that I need
Real Love
I'm searching for the real love
Someone to set my heart free
Real love
I'm searching for a real love"

Ooooh Weeee!

As you know, that song is from MJB's first Album "What's the 411"

Have you listened to this LP "Be Without You" at all?
If so, how do you feel about it?
If not, please watch and listen to the video in my sidebar and then tell me what you feel.

Now about my comment....
Thank you.
Passionate and Lucid are beatuiful words to describe how I felt as I wrote my comment.
I love when people call me smart--it just tickles my brain!!
I'll make sure to keep this quality.

Have a great weekend too hun.
Oh yea, I have something to ask you....I'll email it.


Hey Mama Beryl...
I'm so happy to be back to.
I'm touched that you are happy too.
Being missed and having someone share that with you is a great feeling. I missed you too.

I'm sure you will love this album. Just read the LP titles.
They speak to you don't they?

Did you ever get to see her?

I have only listened to the entire CD once, but I’m so in love with “Be Without You”. It is my favorite song right now. I’ve always been crazy about Mary J. though every since she came out with that “What’s the 411” album.

Freaky Zekey said...

Nelly, I didn't like it the first time I heard it, but I'm going to listen to it again...hopefully it grows on me, b/c I love MJB!!!!

Literary`Musings said...

Yes, Mary J has come a long way. And finally she's into who she is--- emancipated! Enjoy the CD.

Unconquerable Soul said...

Clay said...

Ruben said...

"aint really love" is my favorite from this albu.

lyre said...

Ok I am jealous cause I havent gotten any emails.

Shine said...

I Love it, Love it, Love it!!!

The only song I am not crazy about is Father in you, Something about that one doesn't set well with me.

Like Stephen I love Old Mary too, But there is definite growth in your music and lyrics now.
