Happy Friday, A-Z participants. I don't know about the rest of you, but I am very ready for the weekend. I plan on reading and doing little else. Yep. But for now, let's talk about the letter U.
U is for "Undone: The Sweater Song" and "U Got It Bad"
"Undone: The Sweater Song" - Weezer
The first single off Weezer's self-title 1994 debut, the song was meant to be a sad one, but it wasn't taken that way by listeners. Stylistically, it's a pretty basic song with very minor chord changes. Because of it's simplicity, it's been covered by multiple people, including The Fray, The Offspring, Angels & Airwaves, and The Bloodhound Gang. It's a catchy little tidbit.
*Lyrics: "If you want to destroy my sweater / Hold this thread as I walk away (as I walk away) / Watch me unravel, I'll soon be naked / Lying on the floor (lying on the floor) / I've come undone"
"U Got It Bad" - Usher
From Usher's third album, "U Got It Bad" is a freakin' gem. It's smooth, sultry, and seductive. I've always been a fan of Usher, but had never owned one of his albums...until this one. It's a great collection. Why can't Usher's new stuff be more like his old stuff?
*Lyrics: "When you feel it in your body / You found somebody who makes you change your ways /
Like hanging with your crew / Said you act like you're ready / But you don't really know / And everything in your past - you wanna let it go"
What are some of you favorite U songs? "U Can't Touch This" is a classic...
