Best R&B Of The 90's
R&andB Of The 90's
This a collection of some of the top ten R&B songs of the 90's higlighting some of the lyrics and artists however not detailing their bio's, many of us have found them to be a moment in time when romance was still alive and making love was well, just that making love. It wasn't about shooting, raping or killing, men were gentleman and everyone dressed exquisitely when going out on the town, certainly not in baggie pants and t-shirts to impress the ladies. The ladies wore high heels and fashionable dresses and of course we were just that ,ladies. Curtis Mayfield said it in the 70's with his song, "People Get Ready" it begins like this, "People get Ready, there's a train a comin', you don't need no baggage, you just get on board.... you see change has come and the world has changed but our memories will be everlasting.
"I'll Give All My Love To You"
Ooh Baby, give it to me now, girl
Can't nobody give it out
For me and you, yeah girl
I wanna pull down the shades and the lights
Keith Sweat didn't move much but he certainly knew how to woo the ladies and every man was envious of the man who had no moves. Not only was it was a tantalizing and teasing song, it was tastefully naughty.
My,My,My you sure look sweet tonight,
Put on your red dress , sleep on those high heels,
My,My,My was right Johnny Gill appeared to be competing with Keith Sweat as the radio stations and the DJ's always played these back to back. Honestly how many of us owned a red dress, just because Johnny Gill was singing about it?
" Body and Soul"
What have you done to me,
I can't eat, I cannot sleep
and I am not the same anymore...
Anita Baker said it , as yes there was heartbreak in the 90's as well but all of us managed to get through it, simply by a song. she was and still is one of the best artists of all time.
"Vision of Love"
Treated me kind sweet destiny,
carried me through desperation...
Mariah went through her changes in the 90's but rose to the occasion and is still going strong, her earlier music is far better then what she is recording now however with time comes change and she is still going strong as she is still one of my favorite artists of all time
"One Moment in Time"
Each Day I live, I want to be
A Day to give the best of me,
I'm only one but not alone,...
Sitting with a bunch of friends, drinking wine and talking about life , this song as always been a favorite and I find myself turning it up and singing to it. I want it all and so many of us said the same thing in the 90's how many of us have it all? Whitney is and always will be artist with so much and although she has had her ups and downs , she is still a star.
"Bump and Grind"
My mind is telling me no,
but my body, my body is telling me yes,
R.Kelly an amazing artist golds and platinums line his home an artist that keeps on writing and making hits, he was the talk of the town in the 90's and I had the honor of meeting the up and coming artist at the time. What a humble and warm man and to think his talent made him who he is today.
BOYZ II Men , Barry White, Luther Vandross, TLC, Bone-Thugs and Harmony, Babyface,there are so many I cannot name all of them. The 90's a time when men were men and ladies were ladies, romance and love were in the air and We all wanted to be given "Just one moment in time".
