Happy Sunday, bloggers!
This week’s “Sunday Slow Jam” is taken from American artist Justin Timberlake’s The 50/50 Experience (2013). Titled “Amnesia,” it’s a long, but meditative song that’s sure to put you in a soothing mood on a weekend night.
Now, I’ll be honest and say that I don’t really care for the majority of the song itself. Not to say that I don’t like it at all, but I find it repetitive, dragging on for longer than necessary. However, it isn’t until 5:16 that the ear-gasm kicks in and that the *long* wait in the beginning is rewarded. Switching from the slick, vibrant R&B to a soft, crooning lullaby, Timberlake outperforms himself with his falsetto in the line “I’ll let you drive me crazy for another day,” which absolutely takes you to the clouds, let alone some other world. I’d let anyone who could sing like that seduce me (to sleep, that is!).
Feel free to give it a listen– otherwise, enjoy your Sunday!
