JT At The Piano (Links Fixed) : Justin Timberlake, (rare) Tina Turner with Antonio Banderas, Bone Thugs & Harmony (Ft. Phil Collins), and Sean Paul

“ANOTHER SONG”   JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE

Here’s Justin at the piano conjuring up his best Marvin Gaye imitation.   It’s soulful, passionate, understated, and stands out in stark contrast to the other songs on his FutureSex / LoveSounds CD.    At 4:10, his falsetto takes over, a shining moment in Justin’s discography.   It’s hard to think of anyone escaping the “boy band” image better than Justin has done.   


“WILDEST DREAMS”  TINA TURNER with ANTONIO BANDERAS

Blissful abandon, passion, losing yourself in the moment, vocally Tina Turner at her sexiest.   The title track from her 1996 CD features vocals by Antonio Banderas.   Two versions were recorded, the popular version featuring Barry White and this rare version released to Spanish markets.  Be sure and play it until the end when Antonio starts whispering sweet nothings in Spanish.  

   
“HOME”  BONE THUGS N HARMONY (Ft. Phil Collins)

Combining pop hooks with hip hop isn’t new yet there is something magical in this mix.  The audio engineers seamlessly mixed the smooth, inspirational yet lightning fast freestyle raps of Cleveland’s Bone Thugs N Harmony with Phil Collins’ classic, “Take Me Home” from Sussudio.   Love the powerful message of the lyrics and the blending of  genres. 
   

        
“SHE DOESN’T MIND”                  SEAN PAUL
Not a Sean Paul fan, his sound is reggae-lite. Crossover radio airplay seems to be his focus and traditional Jamaican dancehall artists criticize his style.   But this song while very repetitive is fun and it really makes me spend more time in the airport.  Who knew that airport security had the best job in the world?  🙂
