The Caramel ConnectionThought Of The Day What is Neo Soul
In the late 1980's to early 1990's, the New Jack Swing movement generated many singers with similar styles and sounds, making it very hard to distinguish the various artists apart. Neo soul differs in one major way - each artist is a talented musician in their own right and do not rely on corporate sounds to achieve mass sales, instead succeeding from sheer originality and rawness of their vocal talents. Many of these artists use real musicians like the artists of yesteryear. Yes I refer to the likes of Marvin, Stevie, Curtis, and Sly. Although Neo soul is still very much an underground term used for these artists, the emergence of such great acts as D'angelo, Eryka Badu, Jill Scott, Musiq, Bilal, Maxwell, Angie Stone will ensure the awareness of this music will forever grow stronger.

To long for that hug to yearn for that kiss
fantasies ,fond memories I often reminisce
Of times with you ,just me and you Is this ever to become a reality?
When ever I speak you laugh at me
My soul has died thousands of times
Countless excuses and a myriad of lines
Why cant we just be together
Avoid me if you like but im yours forever
Its funny how we met though I still don`t have you
Is it me or my past give me an answer that is all I ask
Be honest with me ill give everything to you
There is nothing I wont be willing to do
Ask and ill give without you I cease to live
I am unequivocally yours please be mine
you in my thoughts all the time loving you blindly yet these words
I cannot speak ,instead of hearing rejection I silently accept defeat
how do I escape from my hellish tomb you need to respond for im leaving soon
if I cant have you ill let you be
