The Soundtrack of Darrell Jone's Life: Songs of Inspiration for a Man Wrongfully Convicted.


"When you listen to these songs.... you have to realize that it is more than just the lyrics on the page. For example it might not be just about a woman or a specific relationship.... it's all about the overall feelings that the song brings to you."

Above is Bob Marley & the Wailers, "Rat Race."
Here are nine (9) others to be posted throughout the day:
I Feel Like Going On -- L.A. Mass Choir
Stairway to Heaven -- The O'Jay's 
The River -- Noel Gourdin
I Cry -- Anthony Hamilton
I Miss You Part One -- David Ruffin
You Are my Friend -- Patti Labelle -- for Sis :) Testify -- August Alsina
Done Crying -- Lyfe Jennings (Not *ALL* of these lyrics directly pertain to me," chides Darrell).  I think you'll see what he means.....
Where Have All the Flowers Gone -- Earth, Wind & Fire (Peter Paul & Mary cover)
*"This song in particular is about all the brothers and sisters and children who are losing their lives out here for no good reasons..... we have to do better for our society."
_______
Lyric Advisory -- The following songs contain language that may be offensive to some. However Darrell finds that a younger generation may extract a positive message from them.

Window of my Eyes -- Boosie Badazz
Black Zombie -- Nas
Be This Way -- Ghostface
