Brother Ali- Forest Whitaker

*Disclaimer: there's some mild swearing in this one but the message is SO beautiful. It's all about self-esteem and resilience. I love it!

And yo whatever comes up comes out
We don't put our hands over our mouth
And whatever comes up comes out
We don't put our hands over our mouth
Whatever comes up comes out
Please mister bass-man lay it on me
I like that
One more time, give it to me
This real **** right here
I'm beautiful
Ayo, dependin' on the day, and dependin' on what I ate
I'm anywhere from twenty to thirty-five pounds overweight
I got red eyes and one of them's lazy
And they both squint when the sun shines so I look crazy
I'm albino, man, I know I'm pink and pale
And I'm hairy as hell, everywhere but fingernails
I shave a cranium that ain't quite shaped right
Face type, shiny, I stay up and write late nights
My wardrobe is jeans and faded shirts
A mixture of what I like and what I wear to work
I'm not mean and got a neck full of razor bumps
I'm not the classic profile of what the ladies want
You might think I'm depressed as can be
But when I look in the mirror I see sexy-*** me
And if that's somethin that you can't respect then that's peace
My life's better without you, actually
To everyone out there, who's a little different
I say damn a magazine, these is God's fingerprints
You can call me ugly but can't take nothing from me
I am what I am, doctor, you ain't gotta love me
If you would please turn in your Bible
To beauty tips according to Forest Whitaker
In the third chapter of the third line
Brother Ali, would you please read to the choir for me, son
I'ma be all right
You ain't gotta be my friend tonight (you ain't gotta love me)
And I'ma be okay
You would probably bore me anyway (you ain't gotta love me)
I'ma be all right
You ain't gotta be my friend tonight (you ain't gotta love me)
And I'ma be okay
You would probably bore me anyway (you ain't gotta love me)
And I'ma be all right
You ain't gotta be my friend tonight (you ain't gotta love me)
And I'ma be okay
You would probably bore me anyway (you ain't gotta love me)
Forest Whitiker y'all
Forest Whitiker y'all

Jack is certainly misguided (I'm not a fan of cultural appropriation) but he definitely knows what depression feels like! And his song always comforts me....

Jack's Lament

".....and I, Jack, the Pumpkin King
Have grown so tired of the same old thing
Oh, somewhere deep inside of these bones
An emptiness began to grow
There's something out there, far from my home
A longing that I've never known

...but who here would ever understand
That the Pumpkin King with the skeleton grin
Would tire of his crown, if they only understood
He'd give it all up if he only could

Oh, there's an empty place in my bones
That calls out for something unknown
The fame and praise come year after year
Does nothing for these empty tears"

This one for all of my fellow immigrants out there! When you feel lonely or misunderstood, play the music of your homeland and feel better!

"I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true"

Around Christmas time, I enjoy listening to Dances from Terpsichore by Michael Praetorius.

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing! This one is not instrumental but I wonder if you might like it. I used to sing it in a choir many years ago. It is soothing.
