Today’s post, serves as tribute to one of my favorite groups ever, N.E.R.D, (No one Ever Really Dies), an innovative group comprised of Chad Hugo, Pharrell Williams, and Shay Haley. After your visit here, stop by WhySo\’s place (I’m thinking he’s going to pay tribute as well.)
Back in 2002, I worked in the Probate Department of Providian National Bank. My cute co-worker, Jesse (we crushed on each other) turned me on to all kinds of music because I had my head buried in nothing but Jay-Z and Wu Tang. Anywho, one day, he put a N.E.R.D cd on my desk, “In Search Of . . .” After listening, I was hooked immediately. These guys were so different; a little bit of hip-hop, rock, and weird beats and I loved it. My favorite song on that CD is Tape You .
I played this CD out until “Fly or Die” was released in 2004. This CD is a little more alternative and rock than the first. My fav songs: Jump feat. Good Charlotte, Break Out, and Thrasher. Hell, I really wish I could post the entire cd. This one is my ABSOLUTE FAV!
N.E.R.D released their third cd earlier this year, called “Seeing Sounds,” which includes Time for Some Action, Sooner or Later, Windows, and Yeah You (about a stalker chick. You’ve got to hear this one!)
I’ve posted a ton of links on here to introduce those who’ve never been exposed. I hope you like them as much as me., if not, slit your wrists post haste. J/K . Overall, I hope I’ve turned you on to something new, just as Jesse did for me a while back. Let me know your thoughts. Ciao!
