While we're posting parodies….
This is EXACTLY how we used to sing it back then.
I never knew Paula was actually dancing with someone.
All this time I thought she was so talented for pretending to interact and dance with an animated cat and all she needed to do was her usual thing and they just removed her dance partner…...
1995-1999 is a bit R&B heavy for me, but I like most of those a lot more now than I did during the deluge.
Watch @londonrain keel over as I hand The Boy is Mine a 10.
Nah, all my zeroes left in the bottom 10.
(I actually quite liked "I Love Your Smile", by the by.)
Just so I’m clear, are you expecting sexual favours in exchange for that 10?
(Oh, sorry, did you say “keel”? I thought you said “bend”.)
Bend / kneel. Whatever is good for you.
Things don't really start going horribly wrong until the 2000s so the late 90s list is ok despite a bit of the Monica/Aaliyah/Ashanti/Usher/J Lo/Puddy Diddy Daddy Coombs Nate Dogg Snoop Hot Diggity Nelly Kelly Fiddy Pence Jay Ja Cool Rule RnB tedium already starting in 98.
I'd rather rate the massive list of UK 90s #1s before ever touching the US early 2000s!
I loved the weird trend of 90s R&B stars turning up in bizarre teen horror films:
Snoop Dogg (as the undead killer) in Bones
Brandy in I Still Know What You Did Last Summer
Tatyana Ali in The Clown at Midnight
Aaliyah in Queen of the Damned
LL Cool J in Halloween H20/Deep Blue Sea/Mindhunters
Usher in The Faculty
Busta Rhymes in Halloween Resurrection
Kelly Rowland in Freddy vs Jason
Most of them seemed to have it written into their contracts that they couldn't die either (bar Kelly and Tatyana).
I Love Your Smile deserves love if only for that middle eight. The rap is not exactly Mariah's Prisoner but it's cute.
From the post-production point of view this is actually much more impressive and I have no clue how they did it.
And Paula's usual thing is (used to be) better than most people's peak performance.
Blow Branford blow!
I used to like you.
This is an example of a song I LOATHED at the time ('94?) but recently rediscovered. Teebs, it's all about the female skat-vocal, but the rest of it is also quite fun.
Unpopular opinion: I love '90s R&B/hip-hop way more than '90s Eurodance.
I did think of you while writing that. The hurt I might cause. The irrevocable damage to our friendship.
I couldn't help myself I'm sorry.
Sometimes the truth has to hurt.
I don't mind it now at least.
In my defence I think I was just angry with her at the time for outselling my latest crush Cathy Dennis. Surely you can understand that?
Anyway, this is how I liked my early 1991 female piano ballads at the time….
Six weeks at #2 on my personal chart.
Oh god I hated this too.
TLC, Spice Girls, Britney, Xtina, JLo, Santana ft. Rob Thomas...
I'll be handing lots of 10s! Way more than 1990-1994!
And I'll never overcome the fact that neither Jewel nor Alanis have a single #1
