Alicia Keys’ “How Come U Don’t Call Me” – Flash Back Friday!
Thank the happy heavens and kiss the ground you are walking on my little sunshines!! It's Friday !! And why not take it back musically and make it a Flashback Friday with the one and only Ms. Alicia Keys!
"Songs in A Minor" was Alicia Key's debut album back in 2001 and man, oh man, did she catch our attention with her powerful and beautiful voice, kick-ass attitude, and piano playing expertise.
This song jumped into my head the other day, and it gave me memories of blaring this whole album in my car as I commuted to and from Saint Rose from Schenectady on a daily basis. Being the boy crazy gal that I was and still am, I probably was also going through some kinds of nonsense with a guy at the time, so I am sure that is why I had this song on repeat. OH , and how could I forget, the song is actually a Prince song, that he wrote back in 1982 and was found as a B side to his "1999" single!! Being a Prince lover, another reason why I automatically probably fell in love with this song and the electrifying voice of Ms. Keys.
It is absolutely fantastic to still hear her on the airwaves, as far as I am concerned she is timeless and will be considered one of the greats of RnB!
Oh, the song by the way is "How Come U Don't Call Me" - I went off on a tangent, my bad. I hope this song also brings you down memory lane...and check out how young and cute this video is!! 2001 - BSB: Before Swizz Beatz :)
