Aloe Blacc – I Need A Dollar

We’ve all had that single dollar bill just burning in our pockets with no additional bill or coin friends to share the space.  That dollar just longs to find its meaning in life.  Well, Aloe Blacc wants to help.   Aloe Blacc politely asks for a dollar the way he knows best: via song in this soul/R&B/jazz number.   It’s also the intro number for the HBO show How to Make It in America, so it’s paving its way into the hearts of many.

Plan B – The Recluse

I like rap.  I like soul.  I like boys.  Combine those three and there really is no reason why I wouldn’t like Plan B’s “The Recluse.”  Plan B’s full name is Benjamin Paul Balance – Drew which helps to explain his reasoning behind the shorter, less confusing, artist name.   This song is catchy and, if you close your eyes, you can imagine a high intensity scene from a movie where the main character is running away from something…maybe it’s the cops, maybe its humanity in general…maybe you should just take a listen.

Britt Nicole – Walk On Water

We all need a little inspiration now and then, and sometimes that inspiration comes in the form of a beautiful melody with some tinkling piano in the background.  I first heard Britt Nicole’s “Walk On Water”  while watching an intensely emotional episode of “Biggest Loser.”  Thanks to the lovely phone app Shazam, I was able to lock down just who sang the song and here were are.  Grab some free weights and prepare to be motivated.
