Morning Song – Sweet Potato Pie

October 13, 2016

Whatever the word is for the opposite of hip-hop…well, I’m not saying they have a picture of James Taylor next to it in the dictionary, but can we agree that he’s in that chapter?

Which makes it all the more enjoyable to go back to 1988’s “Sweet Potato Pie” and realize it’s a rap-influenced song.  I mean, how else do you explain a line like “She’s my little girlzina, that much hotter that a jalapeño”?

(And if you’re wondering what a jalapeño is doing in a song titled “Sweet Potato Pie”, all I can say is crazy things happen when you’re in love.)
