Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Willow Smith's awesome, yet, sad new song
Everyone gets the blues and when a music star gets the
blues, you can expect great songs. But the 12-year-old Willow Smith singing an
awesome, yet, sad song? True! I wasn't expecting to hear the voice behind
"Whip My Hair" belt them out for at least a couple more years. So
when I queued up Willow Smith's new single, "Sugar and Spice,"
expecting another jammy jam, and not a weepy ballad tracked to a Radiohead
sample. Frankly, I am so impressed and surprised that Smith would use such a
downbeat song (specifically, "Codex" from Radiohead's 2011 King Of
Limbs) at her young age. The song is vastly different from her biggest hit Whip
My Hair from 2010, which tattooed itself into the brains of millions of people
around the world with Crazy Frog effectiveness.
