Singular Motion

You ever listen to your ipod and start singing out loud like you thought you were alone and you start trying to hit the awkward notes and your face does that typical R&B or Pop squinch similar to the face you do when you're on the toilet.. and then you open your eyes and realise you're in public?

That happened to me this morning, luckily for those who listened, my voice isnt half bad (not that it counts for anything when Rihanna and Lumidee have music deals) . But I digress, it was classic Neo-Soul joints that had got me in this Tyrese-esque moment, more notably Musiq Soulchild albums......queue the turn of the track above.

Although Musiq's Whereareyougoing (Still trying to figure out whats up with the lack of space bar use in his titles) centres around retrospective thinking and wanting to get his girlfriend back, it's the underlying message in the chorus that caught my attention today. "If you can't have the one you love, where are you going in your life?"

Can you be happy and content being single for the rest of your life?

Meh...I dunno. Generation and Evolution is obviously driven by reproduction amongst many things so we are designed for relations..some sort of connection with the opposite sex. But there are those who seem to be satisfied with being alone; those who post "Single" on their facebook status and throw a fit when enquiring minds wonder.

I've always been under the impression that nobody truly wants to be single for a long period of time. The cold winters and fiery summers must stir up some type of feeling even in the most stubborn of people (it has to explain why exs and old flings had me receiving more phonecalls than a jobcentre receptionist this winter)

To be content and to be happy are two different things and though I'm not gonna be ignorant in thinking a single person cant be both, it's highly unlikely. You can be happy with being single, maybe after being in a long relationship or seeing the difficulties that can come from it but to be content with being alone for the rest of your life by choice...hmm Im not so sure.

What's your perspective?

"No fate is worse than a life without a love"
