So. I was listening to Chuckii Booker Radio on Pandora at work the other day and this song came on. For some reason, I know every single word to this song and I’m sure I haven’t heard it in at least ten years. I also had no idea who it was by. And this is why Pandora is useful, because now I have this loveliness in my life.
You……you got me hangin on a string now.
Get it, Loose Ends. Lemme see what else y’all made…
Wednesday I had a mini-spa day with Ketan because we are classy and metrosexual. Or, he’s classy and metrosexual and I didn’t have anything to do. We put on Gaelle radio and this song came on.
In case you’ve forgotten since the last time I posted about this song a year ago, this has been one of my favorite songs my entire life. It was especially perfect for Spa Day because who can be stressed when listening to Sade?
Yesterday was Miss Patti Patti’s birthday so I had to find a jam to celebrate. Obviously she had a lot of hits before this one, but I think when this song came out I was old enough to know it was out and who it was by. Basically, I just remember being in the car on the way home from the bowling alley when it would come on and my parents would turn up the radio. Every single time. Because everybody loves Miss Patti Patti. And she did her good singing on this song too.
(and she still has the best black person nosejob in all of the entertainment industry)
The lead singer should become a star if they go solo, right? Diana Ross…Justin Timberlake…Patti LaBelle…Beyonce…so why didn’t it work for T-Boz?
Because she was making music like this. I’m not saying you can’t make a hit singing about masturbation (::ahem:: Tweet’s one song) but this song is kinda awful. I love that it exists though! The whole thing just makes me go “ooo this is bad and ridiculous…I’m mad everybody involved thought this was poppin.”
Brandy…boo…I love you. You are one of my favorite R&B songstresses of all time. The craftmanship that goes into your records is unparalleled in music right now. You have the best background vocals in your catalog of any R&B singer making records.
But this is straight boo boo. I am so mad with you for this.
