I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

Flashback Friday: Shades “Tell Me (I’ll Be Around)”

I never realized how much one of these girls looked like Beyonce.  Shades is basically what Destiny’s Child would’ve looked like if they had debuted at 23 instead of 16.

The original by Bernard Wright is still everything, but this feels more like summertime.

     What’s Total been up to?

Bad Boy's first and best girl group (sorry Danity Kane…sorry Dream [LOLOL!]) came out of nowhere in the mid-90s and disappeared just as suddenly, but not without leaving us with some classics.

Total “Can’t You See”

So what happened?

TLC “Creep” (Unreleased Version)

The best day is when the Internet gives you something you didn’t even know you needed.  Like today, I had no idea I needed to see Rozonda Chilli Thomas in a diner macking on some man who is copying her Wet & Wavy #5.

Flashback Friday:  Shanice “I Love Your Smile”

Oh how novel, a pop/R&B video of a pretty girl who can actually sing and keep her clothes on at the same time.  NOVEL CONCEPT!  Somebody needs to try that again.

Also:  That Creme of Nature relaxer is putting in work.  Why didn’t they hire her?  Boucin’ & Behavin’.

Blaque “808” (Remix)

She ain’t got that boom like I dooooo
She don’t move the room like I dooooo

Some remixes just stomp all over the original.  It’s upsetting that people don’t know about this.

Flashback Friday: Tevin Campbell “Can We Talk?”

It is literally freezing in South Carolina right now.  I just went to have lunch and had to scrape ice off the windshield.  Really?  It’s supposed to be warmer down here!

So I’m bout to listen to some quiet storm, read Bebe Moore Campbell in the bathtub and pretend the weather isn’t intentionally trying to get on my nerves.

Flashback Friday: After 7 “Ready or Not”

I’m not always in the mood to listen to After 7 every time it’s cloudy, but I never want to listen to After 7 when it’s nice outside.  Their name is After 7 though so maybe they were making music for dusk and other low-light situations.  In any case, those Edmonds brothers could sing and I never understood how Babyface became famous over those two anyway (I don’t really know what to say about that third wheel in the back though…did he ever do anything?).

Sidenote:  Early 90s videos by male groups and solo artists are always distressing because the men are usually brown-skinned and the women are light-bright-almost-white, looking like Lisa Bonet.  Every single time.  :-/

So just watch with your eyes closed.

Flashback Friday: Glenn Lewis “Don’t You Forget It”

Remember when black dudes randomly started making the same song?  Glenn Lewis, Maxwell, Musiq Soulchild, Jimmy Cozier, Carl Thomas…everybody was putting out thoughtfully sweet R&B jams.  Let’s do that again.  Poppin’ bottles and making it rain on strippers is a little tedious after awhile.

I just knew I was going to grow up and marry Glenn Lewis.  Move to New York, find me a gay, smooth-singing, neo-soul crooner with nice eyebrows.

Until I got here and realized those guys only date white dudes.
