Flashback Friday – Chaka Khan - "I Know You I Live You" (live)

This is one of my favorite, favorite jams of all freaking times.

Chaka is from a generation of singers who could actually sing.

"I Know You I Live You", was one of the first songs I put on my playlist for Jumping The Broom (the script I just sold).

I always put together a list for each script. Some songs deal directly with the themes of the movie, some are songs that I happened to be listening to when inspiration (the idea and/or dialogue) struck and some help me stay motivated.

I don't know if this song will be in the movie (if it gets made) but I wrote it into a big scene of the movie.

It's been quite a hectic week. The film festival job is interesting but kicking my butt and I just turned in a new draft of my other script. I'm so looking forward to this weekend.

Today the sun is out, finally. I went on a long workout through Villa Borghese Park and this song popped up on my iPod. I started singing out loud until I caught myself. ha

Have a great weekend.

My fave of hers is Through the Fire. After all these years it still gives me goosebumps. Literally.
