That sucks. Must be the week for celebrity deaths. I used to love TLC, until I got over them.

That is sad. I was never "into" TLC, but I absolutely love "Waterfalls", it might possibly be one of my favorite songs. I just heard it on the radio, a couple of days ago, for the first time, in a long time - sad that this happened only a couple of days after I was reminded of them.

Ummm, that beginning sounds suspiciously like Paul McCartney's "Waterfalls". Cover?

Paul McCartney:

quote:
Don't go jumping waterfalls, please, keep to the lake.
People who jump waterfalls sometimes can make mistakes.
And I need love, yeah, I need love, like a second needs an hour, like a raindrop needs a shower.
Yeah, I need love, every minute of the day,
and it wouldn't be the same if you ever should decide to go away.

And I need love, yeah, I need love, like a castle needs a tower, like a garden needs a flower.
Yeah, I need love every minute of the day,
and it wouldn't be the same if you ever should decide to go away.

Don't go chasing polar bears in the great unknown.
Some big friendly polar bear might want to take you home.
And I need love, yeah, I need love, like a second needs an hour, like a raindrop needs a shower.
Yeah, I need love every minute of the day,
and it wouldn't be the same if you ever should decide to go away.

Don't run after motor cars, please, stay on the side.
Someone's glossy motor car might take you for a ride.
And I need love, yeah, I need love, like a castle needs a tower, like a garden needs a flower.
Yeah, I need love, said, I need love, like a raindrop needs a shower, like a second needs an hour,
every minute of the day, and it wouldn't be the same if you ever should decide to go away.

Don't go jumping waterfalls, please keep to the lake.

TLC:

quote:
A lonely mother gazing out of her window
Staring at a son that she just can't touch
If at any time he's in a jam
She'll be by his side
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much
But all the praying just ain't helping
At all 'cause he can't seem to keep
His self out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes his money
The best way he knows how
Another body laying cold in the gutter
Listen to me

[Chorus]
Don't go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and lakes that
You're used to
I know that you're gonna have it your way
Or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

Little precious has a natural obsession
For temptation but he just can't see
She gives him loving that his body can't handle
But all he can say is baby it's good to me
One day he goes and takes a glimpse
In the mirror
But he doesn't recognize his own face
His health is fading and he doesn't know why
3 letters took him to his final resting place
Y'all don't hear me

[Chorus]

I seen a rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin' a trace of not one God-given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days

And like His promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries
My only bleedin' hope
Is for the folk who can't cope
Wit such an endurin' pain
That it keeps 'em in the pourin' rain
Who's to blame
For tootin' caine in your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim for someone else's brain
You claim the insane
And name this day in time
For fallin' prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind

Dreams are hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin' true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

Lyle Lovett escaped serious injury in a bull mauling two weeks ago. Broken leg. He'll live. But you know, if MY intials were L.L. right now, I would probably be avoiding vehicles.

YOMANK, VeebleFetzer. The "zee zee zee zee" is what did it.

Hey, Lex Luthor might be in trouble too. But is that such a bad thing?

Status the Untouchable

I was beginning to like her, too. I don't care for her old rapping style w/ that high pitched and squeaky voice, but on Fanmail and semi-recent guest appearances like Donelle Jones' "U Know What's Up" and Goodie Mob's "What It Ain't," her delivery was deeper and iller than before. And she had recently signed with Death Row Records under the name N.I.N.A. I was looking forward to hearing what she would have released. On her first solo album Supernova, she has a song with 2pac called Untouchable, which if you don't mind me quoting goes something like...

(Left Eye)
Untouchable, look at how you found me
I'm lookin' around sayin' these are my friends
It's a strange world my enemies are my friends
More of the same street, same world, same problems
Is this indifferent?
Same drama, same karma, same mama
Is it different?
The only difference is me
I see inside the truth
Feel bad you don't know the day gon' come
When God has taken you
I see the invisible spirits, walkin' along the physical mind
Of a crazy individual
Where demons still find it livable
I need a hug to hold my soul inside my body
I got the secret here
Yeah, I should have told somebody
'Cause ever since I've been sayin' things I never meant
It's like I was speakin' in tongues, the black breath in my lungs
I won't allow it
Where the cowards live under the dirt in the flowers
Ready to come up in the darkest hour
It ain't the courage of my persona
You wanna admire it's the faith
'Cause with the faith I can walk through the fire
(Now feel me)

(Chorus)
I know you feel me it's the untouchable
Make yourself presentable
I'm listenin' to mysteries of the untold (uh-oh)
Echoin' inside my soul
I know you feel me it's the untouchable
Make yourself presentable
I'm listenin' to mysteries of the untold (uh-oh)
Echoin' inside my soul

(Left Eye)
Sometimes I'm feelin' like I'm sinkin'
Thinkin' what it's like from on the other side
When I look at myself it's like my love had died
People thinkin' of gettin' richer
I'm usin' the blood of the loves that I lost recently
To paint a perfect picture
Can you see the future, future endeavors
That'll make us better
Usin' the light from my wings to make us fly together
Guide my people to a place like what you imagined
My duty now is to God
There's no more beauty pageants we gettin' the chance to thank Him
Me and you finally for what they made
Is it a game that they still playin'
Look at us now we're rid of grief
Payin' society's debt but life we still obeyin'
Until then I'll follow the path
Where will it lead?
Much in between ashes and dust
We must believe trickin' thee ain't trickin' me
I got tricks up my sleeve
They tryin' to market I'm tryin' to make my mark before I leave

(Chorus)
I know you feel me it's the untouchable
Make yourself presentable
I'm listenin' to mysteries of the untold (uh-oh)
Echoin' inside my soul
I know you feel me it's the untouchable
Make yourself presentable
I'm listenin' to mysteries of the untold (uh-oh)
Echoin' inside my soul

(Left Eye)

I know you feel me it's the untouchable
Make yourself presentable, make yourself presentable

(2pac)
I will ride untouchable (I will ride)
After the fire comes the rain
After the pleasure there's pain
Even though we broke for the moment
We'll be ballin again
Time to make y'all my military
Be prepared for the busters
I'mma let ya bitches that's scary
Get to hear me no questions
Visions of overpacked prisons
Flingin's and niggas thug livin', precious
Three strikes, I hope they don't test us
And pull a heater ammunition is great
Move without a sound
And we slide down pistols in place
I'm sensin' niggas just defenses
From hittin' bitches to gettin' those
Who can prevent the shootin' senses
At these niggas throats only wish to breed
I explode into a million seeds y'all remember me
Legendary live eternally then bury me in pieces
'Cause they fear reincarnation, niggas screamin' peace
'Cause they fear
We must wanna face 'em, take 'em to places
Fake their fates then erase 'em, and break 'em
Murder my niggas I'm tired of waitin'
Now quicken the pace
Blast me but never ask me to live a lie
Am I wrong 'cause I wanna get it on til' I die?
Now worldwide
Niggas got the black girls, they hide
No offense to Nas
But this whole fuckin' world is mine
Even if you blind
You can still see my prophecy
My destiny to overthrow
Those on top of me fiendin' for currency
The money be callin'
Can you feel me dreamin'?
Seein' scenes of me ballin'?
Niggas that made niggas and that bitch
What you goin' through
Outlaws bustin' while we rush it
Untouchable
Niggas that play fucked up now what you goin' through
We outlaws rushin' 'em bustin'
We untouchable, untouchable, untouchable (uh-oh)

Echoin' inside my soul, untouchable (uh-oh)
Echoin' inside my soul, untouchable (uh-oh)
Echoin' inside my soul, untouchable (uh-oh)
Echoin' inside my soul, untouchable (uh-oh)

Echoin' inside my soul
Ya'll niggas never stop, you never drop, you never let me fall
Me 2Pacalypse
All I know how to do is ball, ball, ball
My true fuckin' niggas survived reincarnation
After I'm dead they'll rock and roll
And bring the funk to the whole nation
And you know these fuckin' niggas
Have a gun with my name on it, untouchable
I spit the game so clear it's playin' on it
When I'm dead
My niggas will ride for me
Untouchable (untouchable)
Untouchable (untouchable)
Untouchable (untouchable)
Expect me like you expect Jesus to come back
Expect me nigga, I'm comin'

Sorry about the language, I didn't really have time to go through the whole thing. But if this is a taste of what was to come, then it's really sad that she died so soon. My condolences go out to her friends (T-Boz & Chilli especially) and family.

Layne Staley, the lead singer of Alice in Chains, also died recently. So that's another L (although it's not an LL ...).
