Flashback Friday: Norah Jones and MF DOOM

Ugh. Your boy would come down with illness right as we head into the weekend. But bacteria can’t hold me down — here’s what’s powering me through to day.

come away with me

Norah Jones, Come Away With Me (2002)

I bet fans of BET’s Midnight Love remember this one — it seemed like every edition of that show began with “Don’t Know Why” and Norah walking on that beach. Her blend of jazzy, bluesy pop produced one of the most successful albums of the 2000s.

MF DOOM, Operation Doomsday (1999)

If DOOM emerged in the social media era I swear he’d be the biggest artist in the game. His eccentric comic book persona, infectious samples and rapid-fire rhymes are the perfect fit for today’s climate. DOOM’s debut album has been heralded as one of the best indie rap releases of all time. If you missed this hidden gem back in the day, it’s not too late to catch up. It’s nearly two decades old but hasn’t aged a bit.

“Red and Gold”
