This song was floating around in my head for a while yesterday at work for some reason. It totally wasn’t because any of my friends were coming anywhere close to betraying me or anything like that, my friends are still totally awesome, I think just the mood of it was where I was at for a while.
Diana Ross & the Supremes – Keep an Eye
Madlib the Beat Konducta – Friends (Foes)
I feel really lucky I’ve never experienced the kind of situation these songs reference. I don’t know if I’m just really good at picking who I’m friends with, or if I’ve just been lucky, or if I live in a certain time, place, and social position where those kinds of betrayals just aren’t very common. It’s hard to say, and maybe it’s a combination of those. But from what I can tell from listening to blues, soul, funk, and rap music, it seems like that kinda shit is happening all the time to a whole lot of other people, so I’m really thankful to all my friends for not being that way. Y’all are the best, for real.
