You Like "That" Song?

I've always had a very different taste in music. Some thought it was cool, while others would look at me funny and say, "Why do you listen to that? That's White people music". Wait, What??? I didn't know music had a preference with skin color. Ridiculous sounding, isn't it?

Music brings out so many emotions, regardless of the genre. I'm also a lover of Rap, Hip Hop/R&B, but that does not mean its just for African American people. Just like Alternative and Rock & Roll doesn't mean it's just "White people" music. I'm a lover of any type of music that evokes an emotion in me. Sometimes it surprises me in what I begin to like in music, but I welcome it and enjoy it and I don't care who has an issue with it. :) Here's a list of 23 songs that aren't particularly "right" for me, yet I love them!

  1. Gary Clark Jr.- When My Train Pulls In
