Sigh.. I am ashamed at how much I like this song….. I have obviously given in to the Illuminati and their attempt to pollute my mind with the Devil’s music……So I apologise up front.
As much as I like the song and video, one must admit that it is not her most original or catchiest song. It does however seem to inspire a disgusting feeling called “happiness“. Let’s try to forget the lovey dovey feeling it inspires as well.
I digress….The song has a lot of help to make it so sweet.
One such example is that I really like that groove she used which samples Jonathon Butler’s “Lies” (Yes she sampled!!!). She did speed up the groove but it is unmistakable where it came from. (Yes I know she is not the first to sample a song so keep that hate rhetoric you were about to write me on to yourself!)
And not only did she sample music but I think she did it to the video concept (a tad bit). When I first saw the video, it reminded me alot of one by New Edition called “If it Isn’t Love”
Now after I watched it, I could not see a lot of similarities but it was the first video that came to mind when “Love on Top” began. The location and back-up dancers concept sweating in a rehearsal space just jogged my memory to that video. Hmmm, I wonder what New Edition is doing now?
Please don’t be sending hate messages about me not understanding the greatness blah blah blah of Beyonce and that I am just jealous. Please remember that I actually like the song and that all I am doing was pointed out the other music that i felt inspired it……
So please,Beyonce fans,,,,,don’t try to spit in my eye if you see me in the road, because I will beat down a n#$*^..
