This is the very first entry in an endless series of posts that I will make on this blog. I'm calling this section "Womi" or more specifically, "What's on my iPod". I will be uploading random songs from my Music player each day to give you an idea about what kind of music I'm currently listening to. I'm also doing this to let you keep up with the latest song releases in the music industry and point you to a few great songs that you might never have heard of if not for this blog.
Today's Womi song: Graduation Day by Kanye West.
If I dedicated the very first photo of the day to the Apple iPhone, I'm dedicating the special Womi song section's first entry to Kanye West. Graduation Day is the third song on his first album College Dropout. I feel a connection between me and Kanye West, and can almost certainly relate to what he talks about (or raps about) in his songs. Graduation Day is the perfect song to keep in mind when a lot of people are looking down on you for being a failure and trying to push you to be what you're not. The song doesn't even last for more than 2 minutes but the lyrics will move you to think twice about dropouts and unsuccessful people in general. Graduation Day is a good song to listen to in times of tribulation, especially for kids who have just dropped out of school (and you know there are a lot of them). Hit the jump for a full track sample of Graduation Day by Kanye West.
I'm no longer confused but don't tell anybody
I'm about to break the rules but don't tell anybody
I've got something better than school but don't tell anybody
My momma would kill me so don't tell anybody
She wants me to get a good ass job just like everybody
She ain't walked in my shoes
