Music Monday ~ Aaliyah

Last Monday I posted about Nelly Furtado and I thought I'd make music posts a regular thing, and so we have "Music Monday". I'm planning to dedicate Monday's post's to what ever music or artist is inspiring me.

Growing up Aaliyah was one of my icons. Her music was a companion through the whole teenage angst stage. I was devastated when I heard that she had passed away. I can still remember exactly where I was when I was told the news, that she had died in a plane crash. I was at a friend's house as we'd been enjoying a girly sleep over. I remember this feeling of great loss and sadness and also feeling quite weird, for feeling so sad, as I didn't know Aaliyah. In fact I'd never even met her, but her music had touched me, and the thought of her not being around to make the tunes that I'd come to love was quite crushing.

This weekend was the anniversary of her tragic death. I thought I would dedicate this week's music Monday to Aaliyah.

I struggled to narrow down my selection of favourite Aaliyah songs, but I managed to choose 5 tracks that I can honestly say I really love. I hope you enjoy having a listen.

So in the words of ABBA, Aaliyah "thank you for the music". 

RIP Aaliyah Dana Haughton (January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001). 

So do you have a favourite Aaliyah song?
