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

Flashback Friday: Sa-Deuce “Don’t Waste My Time”

One of my friends said “seduce” earlier this week so of course I had to remind myself that this video existed.  It’s pretty much everything great about black entertainment in the 90s all wrapped into one:

  • The ladies are dressed like guys, but with really good Dark & Lovely relaxers (Oh hey, Aaliyah).
  • The evil tramp has corner store blonde weave (Oh hey, Player’s Club).
  • They are wearing bright plastic clothes (Oh hey, every Hype Williams video).

I wish somebody in the background was wearing a UCLA sweatshirt though…

Flashback Friday: Mariah Carey “Can’t Let Go” Live on SNL 1991

I’ve pretty much been listening to Mariah Carey nonstop since that awful "Triumphant" video came out, reliving memories of greatness, mourning the music of the future that could have been.

I mean, look at this.  Mariah can pretty much still hit all of these notes, but she’s too busy trynna play the Round The Way Chick to just sing a well-written song.  And Michael Walden Narada could write the hell out of a song back then.  Lisa Fischer “How Can I Ease the Pain” will always be his masterpiece, but Narada was doing Whitney, Aretha, Tevin Campbell, Regina Belle, and everybody else in the early 90s.

Matter of fact…I’m bout to go make a Michael Walden Narada playlist.  Excuse me for a minute…

Brandy “Wildest Dreams”

Even though I finally came around with “Put It Down” featuring excluding Chris Salmon-Nipples Brown, this is more like what I wanted from Bran.  

I do hope this is the middle of the pack and not the pinnacle though, because she ain’t put enough harmony on this for me.  I need some of those Afrodisiac layers again, an army of Brandys mumbling unintelligibly just behind the lead track…

     Mariah Carey has a new video and it is somewhat less than “Triumphant.”

Oh Mariah…

I’ll admit, I was mildly excited when I heard this was boxing themed because if there’s one thing “Heartbreaker” taught us it’s that Mariah is good at kicking her own ass.

But actual movement would’ve required a wardrobe consisting of more than stilettos and sequined spandex so my dreams were shot to shit.

Anita Baker “Lately”

How does she still sound exactly the same after all these years?  Tyrese is probably sitting a corner somewhere kicking himself for letting Anita cover this song because clearly he’s not allowed to sing it ever again after this.  

Man.

She ate this up.  But not in that “screamsing” way all the black girls think they’re supposed to sound these days.  Ms. Baker just sang the song and left the hysterics in the cupboard.  Can’t wait for this album.

Flashback Friday: MC Lyte “Keep On, Keepin’ On” feat. XSCAPE

This video came on the other day and for a split second I forgot what this song was and thought Regina Grier had released a single back in the day.

But then I recovered and remembered every word.

Flashback Friday: The Whispers “Rock Steady”

Tell me these old men aren’t gettin down with the get down in those ill-fitting suits and medium-sized Sherman Klump afros.

This song makes me feel like I’m at a fish fry.  A black one though, where all the fish has bones and you get it on a Dixie plate with a couple of slices of white bread.
