William DeVaughn, I Want You Back, Questlove, Music Is History

Happy Friday. How are you? Me too!

Look, in this crazy, stressed-out world, sometimes you just need a movie that makes you feel good. Enter I Want You Back. It's my movie recommendation for the week.

You probably know Charlie Day from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Jenny Slate from Saturday Night Live. They're both likable, funny people, and the script smartly hones in on their unique talents. The film doesn't go too heavy with romance, and the comedy is kind-hearted. Sweet. But not too sweet. It's the perfect mix. I Want You Back may not be Clueless or even When Harry Met Sally, but this is definitely a decent rom-com worth giving a chance.

Ear Candy
Be Thankful For What You've Got by William DeVaughn is one of my all-time favorite songs. Fire this slow jam up in the morning to help set your vibe for the day.

For Your Mind Grapes
Reading Questlove's Music Is History is a fantastic exploration of America's musical journey over the last 50 years. Pop, funk, rock, jazz, disco, you name it, it's all here, and Questlove breaks it all down for you in an easy-to-understand context. Best of all, every song mentioned in the book (and there are a lot) is listed in the back!

Enjoy the weekend, and we'll see you next week.
