By: Steve Marsh, Delta Sky Senior Writer
R & B queen Alicia Keys graces the June cover of Sky magazine and she shared a selection of her favorite songs, which you can listen to on Spotify! Here, the playlist with commentary from the musician:
“My favorite Michael Jackson song is “Billie Jean” which is potentially the greatest written pop song of all time.”
“The Beautiful Ones” by Prince
“Gymnopédie No. 1” by Erik Satie—“I can never pronounce it,” Keys says.
The series Autumn, Winter into Spring and Summer by George Winston
“Forget Me Nots” by Patrice Rushen
“(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin
“Sinnerman” by Nina Simone
“Hold On” by Alabama Shakes
“Adorn” by Miguel
“Sabali” by Amadou & Mariam
“Egypt’s mommy’s biggest fan. I won’t even front,” Keys says of her son. “He’s on the tour bus with me and he’ll pick up the songs. He can sing “Fallin’.” And that’s so far before his time! It’s funny.”
“Windows of the Sky” by Chaitanya Sheerin—“I teach [Egypt] about quiet moments. We listen to meditation music together.”
