Didjahear? Oh who asked ya?

Thinking of adding a "Didjahear?" and "Oh who asked ya?" section to each blog post...what do you think?? You know it would be something current and thought provoking or just plain gossip ;-)

What makes a song...

Not sure what attracts me to this particular song. I tried to dissect it to figure it out but I'm not sure. 
Thinking about most of the music that I love and it's usually something said/sung with such feeling that I feel it too. That piece right there, feeling what is being sung is my main attraction to Mary J. Blige as an artist. I've loved her since hearing her sing the hook on Father Mc's I'll do 4 you. Back then she didn't have the greatest singing voice but her voice told a story!
So, is it the lyrics, the melody, the voice, the beat...what makes a song?
I'm inclined not to believe that it's the voice because just about anyone that can carry a tune can sing Always and Forever and I'l appreciate it. I don't know for sure that it's the melody because plenty of songs have been remade and switched the melody and made the song just as classic. The beat...uhhh, the beat is probably and initial hook but at the end of the day some songs are just as powerful accapella. Leaving us with lyrics, and I'm going to have to say I have loved some songs with words I don't necessarily agree with. 
At the end of the day it's some  combinations and magical feeling, I think, that makes a song.

What are some of your favorite songs, lyrics, artists, etc and why?

If you want the lyrics, I found them here:


So a few posts back, I explained that I had been through the process of rooting my D1 and after some trial and error was successful.
Well, although I started this post on 7/9/11 and it is now 8/24/11...I'm still winning. Well, sorta. LOL
I found this phenomenal ROM- Simply Stunning 5.4

It works super fast, looks good, has great customization options and has tons of support. As with good must come the bad....battery life sucks. (HOWEVER, I am hoping it's an app and not the ROM). Just today I exchanged messages with the developer ChevyNo1 regarding this issue.
Currently in the middle of waiting for the a full charge and will continue and update him as well as you guys! (ALL --uh how many of you are out there? Lol)

Along the way, I have found some pretty cool apps AND today was accepted as a beta tester for an app.

All the above is for the Motorola D1, I have been experimenting with the Coby Kyros mid7024 (tablet)-see future posts for information regarding this.

Things are moving along least in the technical department of this life :-)

What I'll be trying next:
*change bootscreen animation
*upgrade to SS5.5
*find more beta testing opportunities
