Robin Thicke Can't Sing Live

Robin Thicke @ Yahoo! Music 1, originally uploaded by emayoh.

It's really sad. tragic even. His voice sounds amazing on his album but when he performs, i'm like ew. voice coach, stat.


he writes great song lyrics...

I wish I could change
I wish I could change
I wish I could stop
Sayin the same old things
I wish I could be
Who u want me 2 be
I wish I could stop
Being the same old me
I wish I could lose
All of my blues
I wish I could stop
Puttin my blues on u
I wish I could love
Like nobody loves
I wish that my goods
Outweighed my bads enough

You know its killin me
Baby how can I let u go
Suddenly theres nothing I need more

Sadly, I have no idea who this Robin Thicke cat is. So his lack of singing talent doesn't register with me. I've heard the name, but I just kept thinking about somebody from my childhood....wasn't that the dad's name on Growing Pains?

But the lyrics are nice, though.

What else are you listening to these days? I'm always soooo behind, I need all the suggestions I can get!

Robin Thicke is Alan Thicke's (Growing Pains) son. He looks alot like his dad though

have you heard that song on the radio called "Lost Without You"? It's mainly just a guitar and a snare...beautiful song. that's Robin. like i said, he sounds great on his album, but live? not so much.

i'm out of the loop on popular music. right now i'm listening mainly to whatever hip hop i have cuz the r&b, jazz, or any slow songs make me cry too much. J gave me a couple albums by Van Hunt recently so i'd say check him out if you can. But also, i don't know what you're into generally.

I never hear the radio. It's been years. Ok, so I'm not tripping on the Growing Pains connection! I hadn't said that out loud 'cause I felt so silly, like there was no way it could be the same dude.

I can only deal with Van Hunt in small doses at a time. There's something about his voice...

I'll see if I can identify this Thicke fella, musically. Perhaps I'll purchase the CD. Right now I'm listening to lots and lots of Jill Scott, Common, Corinne Bailey Rae, Floetry and my standard Jazz vocalists. And I'm kinda bored.

Crying blows. I did a lot of that this weekend. Boys are dumb. (Except for your children, of course. And possibly some standout fathers or brothers that exist somewhere. But other than that, I'm certain that they're all a bunch of dumbos.)

you're listening to good stuff. try checking out Amy Winehouse, Sy Smith, or Nikka Costa. they all doing stuff that's a little off the beaten path. for more dependable soul, try Randy Crawford, Adriana Evans, Rachelle Ferrell and Deborah Bond. you can't go wrong with any of them.

and um...boys. no comment ;)

Does Rachelle Ferrell have something new out? (L-O-V-E her!!)

i wish she did...i love her too. Hopefully soon. if you find out before me, please let me know
