They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) – (by Pete Rock and CL Smooth) 
They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) by Pete Rock and CL Smooth was a hip hop classic. From the 1992 album Mecca & the Soul Brother, I can't believe it's 30 years old. Sampling a bit of Tom Scott's version of Jefferson Airplane's "Today", it tells...

Top Gun: Maverick (dir. by Joseph Kosinski) 
From the moment it was announced, I had low expectations for Top Gun: Maverick. I figured it was just Tom Cruise milking his other franchise for what it's worth. I mean, I adore the Mission: Impossible movies, but was there ever really a need to...

Today (by Jefferson Airplane) 

With newer audiences suddenly discovering Kate Bush’s “Running Down That Hill”, and everyone who grew up in the 80s enjoying the new found love, it’s interesting how music is lost and found again. The right melody can inspire new remakes and variants.

I can’t say I know much about Jefferson Airplane’s music. The first song that comes to mind will always be White Rabbit, which was remixed as recently as last year for The Matrix Ressurections. From their 1967 album Surrealistic Pillow, we have Today. I find it kind of dark and haunting.

Without it, though, we wouldn’t have one of the best hip hop melodies around. I’ll get to that connection in a bit.

Lyrics:

Today, I feel like pleasing you
More than before
Today, I know what I want to do
But I don’t know what for
To be living for you
Is all I want to do
To be loving you
It’ll all be there
When my dreams come true

Today, you’ll make me say
That I somehow have changed
Today, you’ll look into my eyes
I’m just not the same
To be any more than all I am
Would be a lie
I’m so full of love
I could burst apart
And start to cry

Today, everything you want
I swear it all will come true
Today, I realize how much
I’m in love with you
With you standing here
I could tell the world
What it means to love
To go on from here
I can’t use words
They don’t say enough

Please, please listen to me
It’s taken so long to come true
It’s all for you, all for you
