Flashback Friday – 1/22/10

Happy Friday All! After paying tribute to the late Teddy Pendergrass last week, I am back to throwing some random old school Hip Hop and R&B at you all this week. Today’s blog features old cuts from Cherrelle, Cece Peniston, Donell Jones, Joe Public and Yo-Yo. As I was looking up these videos and actually listening to the content, it actually made me sad about today’s music. If you’ve read my old blog, “Will Work For Good Music”, you’ll understand why. I mean, the beats from the past might not be as hot in some cases, but the lyrical content was about something at least! I digress. For example, Donell Jones’ song ‘Where I Wanna Be’ was real talk. Saying he’d rather leave the woman he was with because there were too many temptations facing him, but instead of cheating, he broke up with her. Even though it hurt her and him, he still ended up coming back. after he “sowed his royal oats”, lol.  How many folks do you know who have been in that situation? (BTW-I still believe that Mr. Jones is very underrated…where are all my Donell fans at?! )And Joe Public’s song talking about living and learning. Nobody does that anymore. They make mistakes…..and then make them again for whatever reason. No learning whatsoever. Smh. Then we have Yo-Yo telling dudes they can’t play with her “yo-yo”. I think y’all are smart enough to know what she’s talking about. This was like a the ladies anthem when it came out. Tellin the fellas at the clubs and parties that if you touch my “yo-yo” without consent, I’m stompin you out!  Haha. Anyway, please enjoy these old school tunes and take a second to vote, suggest and comment on them. Have a blessed weekend! 🙂
