    Music is my drug. I guess this is why I find myself searching for escapism in music. And it's not limited to feel-good music. Rather, it's mostly got to do with finding uniqueness. I don't necessarily try to find it, it happens to come to me and that's the way it's got to be, I think.

    Besides the general tendency to break free from the society's rules, norms, expectations and things, from my more personal view, it's a liberating experience for me to appreciate uniqueness in music because I've always been a good girl who follows the rules, had a very strict upbringing, etc.

    All this has much to do with how I and many others define an "artist." One of the elements someone should have to be called an "artist": naturally oozing quirkiness&off-the-wall-ness through his/her music and/or personality. Next-door-girl/boy qualities? No thank you.

    R.Kelly is an artist. Yes he is.
    For example, and as the direct answer to this thread,
    (Sex) Love Is What We Makin
    Unique song, indeed. With different lyrics, it could be a children's song or a lullaby. In my book, songs for adults usually could never be this euphoric. But, the lyrics is strictly for adults. This...I'd say, collision is really interesting.

    This is a good topic, I truly can relate to what you are saying.

    I grew up in a house full of music, strict but if we did 'nt hav nothing else we had music, my father was one of the baddest DJ around and he taught me about music....so i love oldies but goodies not all but some. I agree escapism is something that just happens in music, there is only one song that does that to me.....

    Thanx for the compliment G.J.&Snooogeyfaces.

    2. Company Meets The Lonely - Probably the lyrics come across as some sort of fantasy like situation but the melody again is very different to any R. Kelly song I can recall hearing. Can't really explain it beyond that!

    Great thread Helena
    I can understand your view on Loveland. For similar reason, Forever More do it for me. Almost from the very first time I heard it, it makes me picture some place far away from cities where the air is clean and maybe there are some lakes and grass and forests. Like, a small town in country with beautiful scenery.

    Isn't it amazing how this one particular song from this particular artist has this deep impact on your emotion? I dig your post right here. Love the "in love with love" part. I know what you mean!

    Ironically, one particular song would be "The Zoo." Although not the deepest in lyrical content, Kellz's perception of how metaphors are used in song is unmatched.

    It's like a rain forest/Like Jurassic Park/Except I'm your sex-a-saurus...A thousand birds up out the tree/Girl, like a swarm of bees...Like two cheetahs running free/African butterflies to me...

    Kellz illustrates the perfect picture of the zoo atmosphere with his analogies between human and animal-like behavior engaging in a tropical adventure.

    The bird calls are hilarious.
