Way Back Wednesday- The Quiet Storm

Last night I had a bit of insomnia.  Really I was just lazy and didn’t feel like going to bed.  So as I played on my laptop, I was listening to the Quiet Storm on various stations in the DMV.  I have to admit part of the reason I wasn’t going anywhere was because I was having too much fun listening to the radio, despite the fact a certain station continued to play the same songs over and over again…but I digress.  Today’s post will be some of my favorite songs from the Quiet Storm.  If you are easily seduced or distracted, you may want to listen to these when you get home.

First up, anything by Jodeci is great…well, from the first 2 albums.  I could listen to K-Ci and JoJo and look at DeVante Swing and Mr. Dalvin all day.  I have a ton of Jodeci songs I love, but “Cry For You” is one of my absolute favorites.

I love SWV.  One of my favorite songs is “Right Here”, but one of the best Quiet Storm songs is “Rain On Me”.

Not too far back, but Floetry was one of my favorite groups.  And this song never gets old.

Despite his cheating on Halle Berry, I am in love with Eric Benet.  I remember going to sleep to this song as a freshman in high school (or was I in middle school???).  Regardless, this is when Eric stole my heart. 

Lastly, is Mary J.  It’s funny, I’m not a big fan on MJB, but this is one of my all-time favorite songs.  Go figure.

I had you going way back, didn’t I?!?!  What are some of your favorite Quiet Storm songs?  I’ve made myself now want to purchase “Diary of a Mad Band”.  (I’ll be going to amazon.com soon!)  Happy Humpday, and until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
