My first impression of love songs was not a good one. Especially if it meant, I was supposed to walk around with an air-conditioned crotch.
I remember when Maxwell first came out. The ladies could not get enough of throwing their panties on stage. Personally, my idea of a good love song is not one that will make me want to throw my panties at some singing stranger in hopes to dry hump him in front of a live audience. Now, if somewhere in his routine, the singing stranger says my name followed by “I will buy you the entire Victoria Secret catalogue,” then I’ll consider slingshotting some lace.
I am not entirely against all things sexy and Maxwell. However, I am for all things that enjoy me just as much, with my panties on.
Unlike most contemporary, cookie-cutter love songs, Jazzanova invokes the joy that is already present. They create music to remind me of who I am, as opposed to inducing a longing for who I want to be with. Their songs urge me to fearlessly and purposefully walk in love and not aimlessly fall into it. In short, Jazzanova is one of the most magical collectives of musicians and DJs that I know of.
They are based in Berlin, Germany, and although their website is in a language I have yet to understand, their music is easily translatable.
And what I like most about Jazzonva is that even if I offered to throw all of my underwear at them, they would politely ask me not to. Instead, they would invite me out for cupcakes. Or at least, that is the fantasy.
I could care less about some well toned, extra fine, taller than me guy, crooning about making cinnamon flavored sex to me all night long…with candles, incense and potpourri burning in the background.
Okay, I lied a little. I do care about the cinnamon.
“L.O.V.E. and You and I” scooped me up from many a low point. I hope that it can at least bring a smile to your face and at most, re-introduce you to all that you are.
And here is it’s remix. One of many.
As soon as I return to my computer, I will upload the last two songs for you to download. Enjoy!
