99 Problems

Here’s how my mind works… I was talking with a co-worker of mine about guitar playing, as he was learning how to pick like Muddy Waters with a blues style. I mentioned like Lyndsey Buckingham and he was unfamiliar with his playing style. I then brought up Fleetwood Mac’s greatest hits on my iPad to listen to the live recording of “Big Love,” which is a decent representation of his picking. He got sidetracked and didn’t get a chance to listen.

The next song that came up was “Don’t Stop” and I immediately reminisced about the Clinton inauguration that basically reformed the band by Presidential decree which then got me thinking about Obama’s second inauguration yesterday and how great Michelle Obama looked and then how Jay-Z and Beyonce were there.

I then wondered what Jay-Z song would work for an Obama administration and because my hip hop knowledge is so weak, all I could come up with was “99 Problems.” “I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one.”

So, my mind immediately called the First Lady awesome and a bitch in the span of about sixty seconds. I look forward to my conversation with the Secret Service after I hit ‘publish.’
