You had me at “Gang Starr” – the single most underrated MC to ever “rock a mic”. (is it bad when you’re typing even sounds white?)

George Michael – Yes, yes…Although I would have gone with “Kissing a Fool” or “Father Figure”.

Harry Connick, Jr. – “Only Cause I Don’t Have You”!!!!!!!!!!!!...One of his best songs off of arguably his best album…. Although I would most likely give that title to “Blue Light, Red Light”.

Hey, I'm not the only Hootie fan on the planet!...I always knew you were out there, but my faith was starting to wane.

As much as I love Guru, DJ Premier makes the group for me - my second favorite hip-hop producer (Prince Paul would be first). And yes, you sound white.

As for George Michael, these are all random tracks, not favorite. "Kissing a Fool" would be my pick, as well.

I dunno...I think the When Harry Met Sally... soundtrack has the edge. Blue Light, Red Light was definitely slept on, though. With We Are in Love he had quite the trifecta. I'm not really familiar with his stuff after that, save for his second, quite enjoyable Christmas album.

And what can I say? Sometimes the dolphins make me cry. You may enjoy this piece.
