Through my eyes is just like it sounds, a look at an artist from my point of view. Everyone has their own opinion and this is mine.
Kenneth Babyface Edmond, has been a big influence on my love of music and my Writing. I first came to know Babyface as part of a Group named the Deele, Two Occasions blew my mind. Babyface only sings the choirs on the song, Carlos from the Deele sings lead. I knew because I was a Deele fan. Then Lovers and Tender Lover came out and I was so drawn in by not only his voice but the way he wrote. I paid attention to everything this man did in the late 80 thru well till now. He has written and produced for Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Boys II Men, Bobby Brown, Tevin Campbell and hundreds more.
I could recognize a Babyface written song right away, the cool jazzy R & B groove. There was no mistaking one of his tracks, well I did recently. I heard a song from Bruno Mars, Too Good Too Say Goodbye. I swore I wrote that song, line after line. I had my ex-wife listen to it and she had the poems that lines from this song came from. But I thought If I have 7 lines from this song on 5 different poems, 4 are exact and 3 are similar, Bruno wouldn’t be looking at me for lyrical help. I looked into the song and bingo. Co written and produced by Babyface. His influence made me a better writer, I see things from all points of view.
No matter what he does, he adds that special ingredient to make it turn out better than you could of imagined. So many albums, so many artists Babyface kept doing his thing. LaFace records were founded by LA Reid and Babyface, band mates with the Deele. Babyface has had others such as eCAF its face backwards and now Soda Pop records. No matter what label it is for its going to be written and arranged by a musical Immortal, the myth the man and the legend, Kenneth Babyface Edmond.
So here are some of my favorite Babyface songs and songs that he has written. I know this isn’t going to be a workout play list, more like a candle light bedroom playlist. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
