    Well I have been rolling solo for about a year now but.....

    When I had a chack I turned her on to all kinds of stuff. I used to make mix tapes just for her. She really liked "Baby Let Me Take You (in my arms)", McDonald & Giles, Christie McVie to name a few. She was the best girl I've ever had. I remember this time she went with me on a crazy mission into deep mexico to look for records at Swaps etc... It took all day and we didn't find shit and we saw many 3 legged dogs and many poor and dirty people and lifestyles.

    Sometimes I really miss her a lot.
    Other times really I don't.

    Asha Puthli "Space Talk"
    Anthony Hamilton "Charlene" (way before it was a hit and before most common folk knew anything about the boy A.H.)
    Kem (his whole debut album)
    Erykah Badu & Wyclef Jean "I'm In Love With You"
    Minnie Riperton "Come Inside Me"

    Lots of smoothed out modern soulish and neo soulish joints. Can't get her to stop rockin' all the latest 50 Cent shit, though! (she ain't really into rap but girlfriend LOVES her some 50 Cent!)

    My girl likes:

    Stark's "Dreams"

    Ray Bryant's "Up Above The Rock"

    Co-sign on Anthony Hamilton (that voice does something real deep people)

    Anything Donny Hathaway

    Anything Otis Redding...

    I don't flex my wax on her too much now though. I'll play a clip every now and then of something new I think might catch her ear. She has great taste in music, but I can tell when she tunes out and it's not that tight to be left standing there all hype about whatever's on the platter if the other person's not as into it as you are.

    Slackest LP Ever - "Bathroom Sex"

    After 3 years of slowy easing her into tribe, shuggie otis, J5 and others, I have broken through and noticed my S.O. putting this song on her "Sarah's Subway Mix." It has all payed off. She can't get enough hip hop now. I even caught her listening to Cannibal Ox intrumentals. But that could be a bad thing hough.

    My girl has put ME up on a ton of shit, and I'm talking about artists from Joe Cuba to Young D Boyz.

    She did just come home and I saw what she was listening to on her iPod: Leroy Hudson "Lucky Fellow"

    My girl and I have been together for 15+ years so there's been tons of stuff we've turned each other onto since we met. There's not much lately that falls into that category though - she likes the hiphop, soul/funk, and bhangra I collect, but not enough to run out and buy it herself.

    Still, if one of my CD's is mysteriously missing from the shelf (which is often), I know it's 'cos she took it to drive around with.

    My girl really changed my mind about R. Kelly.

    I got her all amped up on puss filled blood shitters.

  • 'I Love You, You Big Dummy' by Captain Beefheart

    my girl has really taken a shine to this song since i 1st played it for her (i'm not joking)

  • Lately she's likes: Creations Unlimited - Crystal Illusion, Mickey and Them - UFO, and some of the tracks off Jay-Z/Danger Mouse's Grey album

    I would like to add onto this post, but my girl is hella annoyed by this post and claims it is the work of "pretentious assholes (exclamation point)" because dudes are like "i'm so knowledgeable, my taste in music is so good and do my part to expose the girl to all this good music" in a "white man's burden"-esque context. Also, she is set in her ways and doesn't like anything I like.

    Not my words. Talk amongst yourselves.

    PS I've found the gaffes in this post to be funny, including "Come Inside Me" (Freudian slip) and "puss" instead of pus.

    Donny Hathaways' "Ghetto Boy". She wasn't feelin it at first but I persuaded her to listen to the lyrics and then hear the voice. She got the full-effect.

    I get my girl into heaps of music that I listen to.
    She LOVES Edan and MF Doom now, as well as heaps of funky jazz stuff I dig.

    One of the most prominent would have the be David Liebman's 'The Opal hearted Aborigine.'

    Yeah... we call it "Come Inside Me", though. It's a long story so I won't bore you all with the details... you already know how it ends.

  • this whole album I got my lady into:

    and "Classic Girl" - Jane's Addiction

    That's crazy cause I got my girl to peep Come Inside Me and now I just rock the Meat Shake.

    She got me to check out some Dylan and (gasp!) some Grateful Dead (that one with Branford isn't half bad) and I got her listening to Yellow Sunshine and a whole bunch of other shit.

    Recently she brought this home from work asking "have you ever heard of a guy named DJ Premier?". I never knew he did a song on this:

    She also had me listening to alot more nina simone and shit like that when we were boning.
