Song of the Day- Whitney Houston “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay”
I remember the first time that I heard this song. I smiled as the lyrics progressed, as Whitney runs down her man’s evening out. I remembered thinking, “busted”! Even though her man’s indiscretions open “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay”, the song is much more than that. The video visuals show Whitney decked out in black leather.
This was key because by the time the tune was released, a lot had transpired in both Whitney’s personal and professional life. The black leather portrayed a strong, confident Whitney. The video was not only a message to her cheating man, but it was a message to the world that affirmed “This isn’t a comeback, because I never left”.
Soul Sister is a truly passionate about her music. The right song can instantly uplift her mood to turn a not so great day into a party. Her passion for music has also caused her to verbally come to the defense of some of her favorite artists. Don't worry- it was a peaceful defense, and the transgressors were uninjured.
The love of music has led to the wonderful opportunity to share her thoughts with the Grown Folks Music family. When not blogging, Soul Sister is either engrossed in a book, discovering new music or revisiting classic music. Even though her vast cd collection spans decades, the music of the 1990's holds a special place in her heart. She resides in the Southern US.
