"green eyes" (2000): erykah badu

Erykah Badu "Green Eyes" (2000)

In 2000, Erykah Badu released her second studio album, Mama's Gun. It featured Grammy-nominated gems such as "Bag Lady" and "Didn't Cha Know", as well as the ballad "Orange Moon". However perhaps one of the most impressive feats on the album was "Green Eyes". It has been described as a "three-part epic exploring the contradicting emotions of a woman trying to cope with a breakup". I have yet to meet a woman who doesn't feel Erykah on this song. We'll just leave it at that...

A timeless classic indeed.
