Friday Random/Genius Ten: Back To School Special.

Summer’s over. I know you don’t want to hear it, but it is. Bright side: aren’t you glad to have the streets free from roaming packs of teenagers? This week’s Friday Random theme is: songs that remind us of going back school.

Blackink is busy with, like…real life work and stuff, so you’re stuck with me this week. I’m running with this opportunity and starting the list off with a little Lupe Fiasco (who is criminally underrated by some of my cobloggers).

[Vimeo 2984041]

1. And He Gets The Girl – Lupe Fiasco (shani-o)

2. Me and Giuliani Down by the School Yard (A True Story) – !!! (Chk Chk Chk) (Jamelle)

3. Back to Life – Soul II Soul (Blackink)

4. Sittin’ Up In My Room – Brandy (UniverseExpanding)

5. It’s Saturday – Marcy Playground (shani-o)

6. Git Up, Get Out – OutKast (Blackink)

7. Got You Where I Want You – The Flys (shani-o)

8. I Missed The Bus – Kriss Kross (Blackink)

9. What’s Next – Leaders of the New School (G.D.)

      I was wondering if you actually even listened to music, lol. We’ll bug you specifically next week.

      I’m probably going to have to apologize for this – I suspect Shani was partly referring to me.

      I just … whew … I just find homie kinda boring. /ducks for cover

                I’m just glad to know I wasn’t the only one.

    Summer is not over until September 22nd, the first day of fall. School summer vacation ending has no effect on the actual seasons.

      You seem like a lot of fun.

      Are you sure about that? I always thought the planet adjusted its rotation to suit my alma mater’s spring break.
