PLAYLISTS: TV SHOWS
Hi guys! I got a new playlist for you. I decided that it would be an awesome idea to create a play list from TV shows! That’s a great source for music right? I watched the first episode from season 1 of “Beat Shazam” a while ago, and I absolutely hated it!! I was so disgusted by it I vowed never to give it a second chance. Well, after I got this idea from creating playlists inspired by TV shows, “Beat Shazam” would be the best show to start from (technically since they play a lot of classic music). So, I was trying to stomach another episode starting from episode 8, I have to tell you I barely made it. If it were not for me watching it to create this play list, I would have cut it of 20 minutes in. Although I think Jamie Foxx is doing an ok job as host; I think the problem is the contestants they find for the show. Well, let me just come out and say it, and not care what the hell people think, cause this is MY blog, and I can say what the hell I want on it. The show is exactly what I feared. So far, the little that I have watched, it put Black people to shame. When I watched the first episode, I was furious that two young Black college girls did not know Gladys Knight’s music. Now, I am not the kind of person that gives in to stereotypes, but f**k!! How could you be Black and not know who Gladys Knight is!!!!????
You know it’s funny, I remember growing up, my elders always used to complain about these TV shows, saying “They always have White people questions.” Now, we have a show that Both White and Black people can play together, and none of the Black people on the show knew any of the Black music! What’s your excuse now? Are you gonna drag out your “Black Lives Matter Card” now? I don’t think that’s going to work honey. Not this time. I don’t understand how Black parents aren’t embarrassed? Oh that’s right, it’s because the parents are still teenagers themselves!! What about the grandparents? They’re probably still in the clubs twerkin’. Oh well “let us pray,” cause you know that always works (by the way, I was being sarcastic).
It happened several more times in other episodes!! Even Jamie subtlety reacted to that a couple of times. I mean, the Black contestants are jumping up and down acting crazy, as if to say they are going to crush the game, and win some big money, and come to find out they’re dumb as hell. They don’t even get to the second stage half the time. BLACK FOLK I’M TELLING YOU, YOU MAY NOT LIKE WHAT I SAY, BUT WHAT I SAY IS THE TRUTH, WE HAVE LOST OUR BLACK MUSIC CULTURE! THAT SHIT IS GONE!! Most of your young kids don’t know anything, about any of our prolific musical artist of the past! Yet you preach knowing your history? Are you kidding me? Anyway, this is the last time I’m watching the show for real, I gave it enough chances, I just can’t. So, I managed to get some great music from episode 8, which included music from Cyndi Lauper, John Legend, Alicia Keys, and Crystal Waters. Listen to the playlist here.
