A Song You Need to Hear; Or, Ode to the Summer Jam

If you enjoy good music, go to and listen to the first song in the "player" that automatically cues up on the page loading. The song, "Love," represents what hip-hop fans know as the "summer jam." That's slang for a "fun, upbeat, put-you-in-a-good-mood kind of song that only comes along once in a while." This song is AMAZING. Can't stop playing it.

On the summer jam thing, you know what I'm talking about. The type of music that lifts you up, makes you forget about the bills and exams, brings on that type of joy that lets you sit in a little corner of the world for 3 and a half blissful minutes, uninterrupted and happy. Every summer has such songs, and I am crowning this one, by the rapper/dj DJ Maj, the summer jam of 2005. Make sure you check it out. It details a love story and carries that infectious happiness that lifts me up. It's a beautiful thing how music can touch and move as it does. I'm guessing if you enjoy good music that you'll play this one more than once.
