What's playing in my deck ...

When I was a child, my mother used to have a rule that no secular music - primarily my collection of occasionally profane hip-hop or sexually charged R&B - would be played on Sunday until noon. Assuming, of course, that we didn't go to church that morning.

Until recently, it was a rule that I abided by. I'm not sure if this is a result of me owning a really weak crop of gospel music or if I've steadily become a heathen in recent years - it doesn't help that I regularly work on Sunday mornings.

I probably need to get some more church in my life. Either way, iTunes came up with this:

1. Written All Over Your Face by Rude Boys featuring Gerald Levert
2. After The Love Is Gone by Earth, Wind & Fire
3. If I Should Die by Jay-Z featuring Da Ranjahz
4. Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangsta by Geto Boys (H-Town, represent!)
5. Coming Where I'm From by Anthony Hamilton

"Tried to be good/Tried to keep from trouble/Living too fast/Tried to make good on the hustle."

Something about hearing Anthony Hamilton makes me want to eat a bowl of grits, place all my belongings in a sack and hitchhike back to Louisiana.

Just sayin'.
