Song Of The Day – “Bonita Applebum” A Tribe Called Quest

20 Jul

My first memory of A Tribe Called Quest is seeing the cover for jlk;aj;j at the local CD store. I thought it was totally cool with all the bright colors and vaguely human shapes. It left an impression on me. “Bonita Applebum” has an undeniable jazz cool running throughout as electric pianos gentle shimmer over a funky beat. In a bid to win over Bonita, Q-Tip spits some of his finest verses with his typical charm, stringing together compliments with ease. It doesn’t get much smoother than this.
