When this song was released it was an instant hit because it embodies the life style of gangster rap on the west coast the Cube was portraying and his fans got behind his rhymes and embraced this life style. The story inside the song is simple. It shows his everyday life from the first line "Just wakin up in the mornin gotta thank God.." to the last line of the song "I got to say it was a good day". Some say this isn't the correct way to live life but I particularly think otherwise. I think its interesting to know that celebrities live the same life as the average joe maybe even worst depending on their current situation. Nevertheless, I apprecitate Ice Cube for this story on a rap artist everyday life and that's why this song made our list.
This was probably the goofiest song ever wrote describing his love for one particular woman gone wrong. This whimsical comedy track made the list from the song being an actual story in chronological order. As in this song contains a story about his relationship with a girl and how it all started til the way in ended unfortunately. Easily a song that tells a complete story with a beginning middle and end.
In this hit by Lloyd he shares the obstacles that everyone goes through at one point in life in the simple desire to be excepted and loved by others. Being " Tru " as he calls or being true to yourself as in respect yourself and be yourself and others will get behind you from being you. The main reason this song made the list is because as a whole our generation well every generation when the reach high school are usually stuck in funk about trying to find themselves and longing to be excepted or fit in with one another. But Lloyd encourages everyone to be true to yourself and follow your heart and that makes this song something to listen to and a favorite in my book.
On the opening track of LEMONADE, Beyoncé introduces the suspicion, pain, and emotional intimacy that will drive the whole album. this particular song tells a story of a hurt woman ( beyonce) wishing that her husband would just notice her and catch her in the act of seeing his infidelity. she is a hurt women trying to be heard by her husband.
"Can You Stand The Rain" was a song that change the love song game. It was iconic and turned a lot heads that weren't already turned on to New Edition's work. The title of this work is self explanatory. A rhetorical question that leaves fans all over the world in aw. The title says that will you be able to stand the pain, hardships and obstacles that come with being in a relationship. We obviously cant connect and relate to the song because we haven't experienced real love. We do enjoy this because we just have a taste for old music and love songs and story below the title speaks more to the heart it does to the ear
This particular song tells a story because he simply wrote this song to tell a story about the life he lived growing up with his mother and sister. He dedicated one of his top hit to his mother and throughout he told how much he appreciated her. The song also was a statement for forgiveness for all the things that he put her through and to evidently apologize. He ultimately realized his mothers struggle and the sacrifices she made for him as a child and as he has grown in age and mindset, he's seeing these things and is appreciating his mother. This song belongs on this list because it is one of my favorites only cause I feel as if I cant relate to this song right now in life I will soon understand what was told in Tupac's lyrics.
