50 Ways to Prove I’m Rubbish #8

The last in the trilogy that my ex-girlfriend at the time loved, but – and I still hang my head in utter shame at this – I just didn’t get at the time.

I’m going to play my “but it has no guitars on it!” card once more in a rather pathetic attempt to justify explain my failings back then.

For who could not hear the genre-busting work of genius that is De La Soul’s 3 Feet High and Rising album and not marvel at its wonders?

Me, that’s who.

I mean, I look at it now and genuinely scratch my head at why the nineteen year old me didn’t fall for its charms back then. The title even name-checks a Johnny Cash song, for chrissakes!

Anyway, this is the song which most makes me look back ruefully:

De La Soul – Eye Know

And, as it’s Saturday, a bonus track:

Welcome to the weekend.

More soon.

  1. Love that first song from de la soul. A great album from my teen years. Can’t find it on Spotify tho. You got it on google drive or similar, Jez? Can you chuck it my way.

  2. I thought that around those times, you’d more likely have fond memories of Jennifer, oh Jenny.
