Soooo Late - Tia

You know how you hear about an artist and you just don't catch the vision? Yeah, that's what happened with me and Citizen Cope. I've heard Toya talk about CC for YEARS now. I just wasn't all that interested. And then I was in my hotel watching Scrubs and this song came on and I was literally mesmerized. I had no idea who it was but I had to find out. So I wrote down the lyrics that I could remember with the intent of googling them later.

The next day Toya came over to watch American Idol and saw the note that I'd written myself. She asked if I wanted to know who sang it. I mean, of course she knew. I don't know why I didn't think to ask her in the first place. Knowing her is like having my own music encyclopedia. She told me it was Citizen Cope and the song was called Sideways. She also told me that everyone she'd ever known listens to the song repeatedly when they first discover it. Well, I'm no exception. I swear this song is putting me into a trance or something. I CAN NOT stop listening to it. However, I must say that I'm glad I'm not heartbroken or getting over a relationship or anything. Otherwise, I'd probably be ready to jump off of a building. So if you're just getting out of a relationship or something I would advise you to NOT listen to this track.

I'm going to head on over to Rhapsody and listen to EVERYTHING else CC has. I am officially a fan.
