Hello there people of the interweb, and welcome to the seventh edition of my series of blog posts dedicated to some of my favourite songs ever in life. Now I know it’s been a very long time since the last one of these kinds of posts and it was meant to be a regular Monday segment but time got away from me. But now I’m back and today’s song is one of my favourite hip-hop tunes from the year 2008, ladies and gents I give you “Punch Drunk Love (The Eye)” by Common.
I first came across this song around 3 or 4 years ago when I was in college and while going through Common’s Universal Mind Control album this song came up, and then I was hooked. This was one of the songs on the album that I immediately clicked with; from the time the song started and when that sexy beat dropped I was in love. I was also well happy about Kanye West’s input in the song and his lyrics made me smile. Overall the song is just about sex and being fly, but it’s the way that the music and lyrics are done which makes it kick ass. I like the way Common talks about things and attached his words together too. The song just has an undoubtedly sexy sound and I’ve been listening to it ever since, it works especially well in summer time.
In conclusion “Punch Drunk Love (The Eye)” by Common is cracking hip-hop tune with a sexy sound and has some great input from Kanye West. If you ever get the chance have a listen to the whole Universal Mind Control album, it’s pretty darn good/
Well that’s another song review done, hopefully you enjoyed it and hopefully I’ll be able to get back to doing these review more often (probably not on Mondays anymore). Until the next time, laters people! 😀
