I love you too, Usher!
The countdown has begun for Usher’s OMG Tour in Australia, and I recently picked up my tickets for the event and got to gaze at them with awe-struck wonder.
Currently, these tickets sit in a crystal vault, with a disco ball revolving above it. And with angels playing harps nearby. That is how much I dig Usher.
There are three songs of his that hold a particularly special place in my heart. I don’t think I shock anyone when I say that the letter “U” is involved in all of their titles.
U Remind Me
We’ve all heard about looks that can kill, but who would’ve thought they could kill a relationship?
I love this song because you can take it two ways. First, a guy is refuses to get together with a new girl because she looks to similar to someone who broke his heart in the past. Second, it can be interpreted as a guy refusing to get back together with an ex-girlfriend, because even though she looks the same physically, the heartbreak she caused him previously has changed the way that he perceives her.
Plus, how f**king sick is the little dance interlude he does in the clip to the sound “U, U, U, U, U, U, U?” And this song will go down in history as the one that introduced me to his red beanie over a white beanie combo.
I like to think of this song as my instruction manual on how to play R&B twister. I will do the dance moves to this song on command. Even in very, very public places.
U Make Me Wanna
This is the song that first turned me into an Usher fangirl.
“What’s sad is that I love her, but I’m falling for you”
Truly a great dilemma.
Some might even call it an EPIC one 😉
