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

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.

Fontella Bass “Rescue Me”

In remembrance of Fontella Bass, appreciate this song please.

Often placed alongside hits by The Supremes, Martha & the Vandellas, and The Marvelettes, “Rescue Me” captured the girl-group sound of the 60s while performed by Fontella Bass solo. Banking on the heavy bass typical of the “Motown Sound,” Chess Records hit big with this song in 1965 and it still remains a classic.

Lloyd “Get it Shawty”
Remember when bangin’ R&B jams didn’t sound like Eurotrash leftovers?  That Streetlove album was really underappreciated.  There is some really good production going on and this was My Jam right here.

Also…

Lloyd feat. Lil Wayne “You”
I actually forgot Lloyd had a lil’ body on him.  I also forgot that time when D. Woods used to have a job.  This is such an effective use of samples.  I need more of this and less of whatever Usher is doing please.
