Okay so everyone knows that Bey can sing but not enough people know what she’s truly capable of vocally so I’ve compiled what I think are some of her best bg vocals and harmonies. She came up with most of [if not all] these arrangements by herself. It’s a little over 10 minutes long but it’s worth the listen.

0:00 - 0:20: Naughty Girl, 0:21- 0:30: Baby Boy, 0:31 - 0:52: Me, Myself & I, 0:53 - 1:10: Deja Vu, 1:11 - 1:31: Get Me Bodied, 1:32 - 1:40 - Move Your Body, 1:41 - 1:54: Upgrade U, 1:55 - 2:04: Freakum Dress, 2:05 - 2:10: Green Light, 2:11 - 2:34: Irreplaceable, 2:35 - 2:47: Disappear, 2:48 - 3:07: Smash Into You, 3:08 - 3:42: Halo, 3:43 - 4:05: That’s Why You’re Beautiful, 4:06 - 4:30: Single Ladies, 4:31 - 4:37: Ego, 4:39 - 4:54: Telephone, 4:55 - 5:13: I Care, 5:14 - 5:19: Best Thing I Never Had, 5:20 - 5:34: Party, 5:35 - 6:16: Love On Top, 6:17 - 6:32: End Of Time, 6:33 - 7:02: Run The World (Girls), 7:03 - 7:17: Dance For You, 7:18 - 7:36: Schoolin’ Life, 7:37 - 7:47: I Been On, 7:48 - 8:00: God Made You Beautiful, 8:01 - 8:12: Rise Up, 8:13 - 8:36: Pretty Hurts, 8:37 - 9:18: ***Flawless, 9:18 - 9:23: Superpower, 9:24 - 10:02 - Standing On The Sun (my personal favorite), 10:03 - 10:19: Part II (On The Run), 10:20 - 10:50: Grown Woman

Frankie Knuckles’ remix of Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You”

RIP Frankie Knuckles

I can’t even articulate the ways in which Frankie Knuckles changed my life and the lives of so many millions of people across the world. He changed Chicago forever and for the better. He changed music forever and for the better. What has house music meant to me? Everything. It is my heart and soul and home. It is coming home. It is the truth and the gospel. It is the language I speak, the language millions of House Heads speak across the world. Thank you for the gifts and the light you gave us, Frankie.

Selena falls in that category of they-died-too-young music biopics that feels like the first half of a Behind the Music episode. It’s the “chart-topping highs” without the “unthinkable lows”—the story of a beloved artist whose life was bursting at the seams with love and success, and whose greatest tragedy was their untimely death.

Selena was murdered on this day in 1995, so I wrote about the movie for The Hairpin (via bobbyfinger)
