Way Back Wednesday

I woke up this morning feeling a little nostalgic, so I decided to do a little reminiscing!  On today’s Way Back Wednesday, I’ll go back to some great music that was around when I was growing up. 

First, I must start with Aaliyah, who was tragically killed in a plane crash on this date 9 years ago.   From her first album, I changed the lyrics to “Who is the L-I-Y-A-H?” to fit my name from the song “Back and Forth”.  My favorite Aaliyah song is “We Need a Resolution”.  Enjoy the video!

Next up, my favorite female group during the ’90’s is oft forgotten “Total”.  I LOVED them and still jam to their last album.   The day I kissed my little high school boyfriend for the first time, “Kissing You” came on the radio, so that song had a special place in my heart for a little while; now…not so much.  In any event, my fave song from their last studio album, “Kima, Keisha, and Pam” is “I Tried”.  Too bad there’s no video, but I think you’ll enjoy “What About Us”, a classic from the “Soul Food” soundtrack, just the same!

 Lastly, every young girl LOVED 112, and I was no exception.  I still jam to them every chance I get.  Slim was the man every young girl had a crush on, but I loved Q.  “Cupid” was…my…jam!  I loved this song during a time that I didn’t do love songs.  (I was a little non-romantic back in the day.)  But 112 got me out of my funk with this ballad.

I hope you enjoyed “Way Back Wednesday”!  What were some of your fave songs back in the day? I’ll try to bring you a little bit of something from back in the day each Wednesday.  If you have anything you would like to see, let me know!  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
