You know what? We talk a lot about women these days, even discuss favorites, and so far, I just want to kick back and offer a tribute with a list of song dedicated to women, you never fail to both dazzle AND confound us. Just something for us men to show our appreciation to you.
Jay-Z "Girls, Girls, Girls"
Before he snagged Beyonce, Jay-Z could attest to loving women enough to actually write a grocery list of women that he knows, or probably planned on knowing at the time. This isn't a testament to whether men date a lot of girls, really. But just a testament to the fact that any girl can get some love. Yes, even you. Paranoid woman. Come from behind the door. There's nothing to fear. Come on...
Eels "Tremendous Dynamite"
This song basically pays tribute to the very fact that you know how to turn a man on and knock us out. (Don't pretend like you don't like an anthem where we romanticize how sexy you truly are.) Just listen to EE as he introduces himself as "el hombre lobo". A moment sooner, this is going to soundtrack the montage or a slow motion scene in your head, when a beautiful girl marches by.
Griffin House "The Guy That Says Goodbye To You Is Out Of His Mind"
I was mega-cheezed off when the woman that saw this the last time I put it on my site thought it was cheesy. What? A man can't prove the liveliness of chivalry with a song anymore?
The Pharcyde "Passin' Me By"
A man opens his heart, especially with the idea of spray painting it on the wall, and she doesn't notice. Story of the life of men who get friend zoned, huh?
A Tribe Called Quest "Bonita Applebum"
Even if some of you girls don't have an applebum, this song is written exactly from a man to the girl he hopes to pursue. Just when you think that a man is incapable of being more of a gentlemen on rap songs, "Bonita Applebum" shows you how it is done. So, if you will, pretend your boyfriend wrote it just for you, or somewhere a woman is writing for any woman here that is single.
Now for the final song that I think describes our feelings a little more than any...
Wild Beasts "All The King's Men"
From labeling you our candied queens, to acknowledging your ability to birth our men's babies, this song is pretty much what inspired my list for the girls out there, and is a song made to marvel to. Don't giggle.
So, women, here is our gift to you. Don't say we never did anything for ya, okay?
Can you think of any other songs that are dedicated to the power women have over men?
