Not Just Irreplaceable | Rediscovering Ne-Yo

You know how one song could lead you to others?

Well, that was what happened to me last night. For some inexplicable reason, a certain song kept playing in my head: Irreplaceable. Not Beyonce’s version but Ne-Yo’s. So I looked it up and found—not the rendition I am familiar with but—a new one! And I instantly loved it, way more than the old one. You could compare versions, if you like.

Old Version

New Version

With such an impression, I looked for other Ne-Yo songs and found more to my liking. And because of this search, I came to the conclusion that there are songs out there that I have yet to come across because, like “Easy” and “Move Along”, they aren’t included in albums nor are recognized as released singles—or at least not those that Wikipedia and MTV know about. Maybe I’ll discover them in the future.

    I had a similar experience, in a way, with “The Best of Kansas” CD. It included several songs that I have never heard on the radio, but after listening to the CD, they really grew on me and encouraged me to seek out other classic rock songs that were somewhat off the beaten path.

      Cool experience! The only song of theirs I know of is “Dust in the Wind”. They remind me of America.

      That’s why I’d rather listen to CDs and even cassette tapes: they force you to listen to whole albums. By the end, you learn what you like and don’t like, not just what is recommended by the producers.
