Watch: Whitney Houston “Saving All My Love” (1986 Grammys)

Imagine being 23 and already knowing you’re the best in the world at something. What a moment!

Published

The Emmy Awards were a couple of days ago and I was reminded that Whitney Houston won an actual Emmy for performing a song on the Grammy Awards that she also won a Grammy and an American Music Award for…and when will your fave EVER?!

A couple of things I just learned about this song that I feel the need to share:

  1. It’s a cover! I had no idea, but it was previously recorded as a duet in 1978 by Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. One of the songwriters, Michael Masser, heard her sing “The Greatest Love of All” and re-worked his old tune for her album.
  2. Cissy did NOT want her baby singing that song, because they were High Holy Christians and Whitney could not be out there singing about saving her goodies for a married man.
  3. It became Whitney’s first #1 single on the Hot 100, the first of seven consecutive #1 singles — a record that still stands today.

Nippy threw on somebody’s prom dress and one of Tina Turner’s old wigs and ate it up though. Imagine being 23 and already knowing you’re the best in the world at something. What a moment!

(I’m over 30 and I’m mediocre in every way, so I one thousand percent cannot relate.)

Watch: Megan Thee Stallion “Thot Shit”

Who is doing it like Megan?

Music videos don’t surprise me anymore…but Megan just surprised me. The Nightmare on Elm Street throwback? These costumes? The political commentary? Cheyenne Escada from Legendary making a cameo?
 
And Megan’s flow is just so smooth. Who is doing it like her?

90s R&B Girl Groups Playlist

Every song I like from every R&B girl group of the 90s.

Published

The Xscape / SWV Verzuz prompted me to make a playlist of all the songs I like from R&B girl groups of the 90s. It’s in chronological order, so it’s a good progression of sounds and trends, from En Vogue “Hold On” to En Vogue “Riddle”

If your jam is missing, it might not be on Spotify (Pure Soul “We Must Be In Love” Brownstone “5 Miles to Empty” etc.) but lemme know if I skipped some groups!

(Also, I think I might expand into the 2000s a bit? Cherish and ISYSS and groups like that fit right in, and I want more Destiny’s Child.)

((AlsoAlso, the Spotify embed stops at 100 songs, but there are over twice that many on it. It’s an extensive overview!))

Ultimate Christmas Party

Bops ONLY! No ballads!

Published

on

I love Christmas music!

No sarcasm either. I worked retail for the better part of a decade and it didn’t make me hate holiday season at all — but it gave me a lot of Christmas Bops! The thing that I don’t like about most Christmas playlists is when you’re at a party and you have a good vibe going and then somebody’s overly ad-libbed version of “Silent Night” or “O Come Emmanuel” comes on and drags the mood down.

So this is a Christmas Party Playlist — bops only, no ballads. I tried to group the songs together by genre so you could skip a section if that’s not your sound, but it roughly goes from Gospel to R&B to Pop to Rock to Country and I feel like you should just put it on shuffle for your Ugly Christmas Party and have a ball.

And! For the heathens who like some secular music sprinkled in, there’s a Deluxe version that has a non-holiday bop for every Christmas song.

Happy Holidays!

(For those who are asking, I didn’t make a Christmas Wishlist this year because I’ll be moving in a few months and I don’t need anything until we see what our space is like. Send good vibes and do something nice for somebody!)
