nice selection of tunes
OPENING TRACK!!!!!!!! - HA, YES....right into it!!!!!!!! Male vocals, "Cause every time my heart beats," can't wait until happy hour synth. 4:05 mark - ROLL. Male vocal hook, "Hold up wait uh minute." Female vocals, "I'm a 90s girl," drag-slide beat cadence \\0// \\0//. https://hips.hearstapps.com/hmg-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/images/en-vogue-1-1522943274.jpg?crop=1xw:1xh;center,top&resize=480:* - A dance floor filler. 10:05 - Hands UP \\0//. Aaron Hall's dripping vocals, "Don't be afraid 1991." 13:00 - Blackstreet "U Blow My Mind baby 1994." The immortal Teddy Riley and "Lil" Chris Smith's production dominance. 17:20 - The opening chords is all yaz need. "Girl, the only thing that matters in my life," need I say more? 30:00 - HAAA YES. Hi-Five, "I Like the Way (The Kissing Game 1991)." A DEFINITIVE crush girl jam. 25:45 - Janet. Love Will Never Do (Without You 1990). Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis' production was the perfect match for Lady Jackson's playful development into womanhood. 28:30 - That Slick Rick beat into "This is how we do it." This is R&B's version of Van Halen's catalog, if you're alive, you've heard it. 32:05 - SMOOVE. The Jackson's, "Nothin (That Compares 2 U 1989)." GEEEEZ.... I forgot all bout' this one. 35:40 - Yep. Male vocals, cool little bass funk keys. 39:10 - HAAA YEAH, PROPER FUNK. The Humpty Dance (UK Remix 1990). This version barely got any spin in the States back then. The original version tho, got ENDLESS Jordan and Nike spins https://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/data/500/Humpty_Hump.jpg . 43:40 - Vibin'. Male vocals, DEFINITIVE New Jack Swing sound and production. The snares and elaborate synth components were so catchy you'd hum the melody for weeks. 46:50 - Gawd. " B!@*#&^* betta have my money"....omg, the controversy and friction this track caused...smh. Outside of "Here we are now, entertain us," cats were sayin' that lyric every time they put on cologne. 50:50 - Guy, "Groove Me 1988."
Kay R's 2015 YouTube comments, "I could only imagine how jumpin' the clubs probably used to be when this song played omg," nuff said. 55:50 - Joe Public, "Live and Learn 1992." The drum breaks. 60:00 - Keith Sweat, "I Want Her 1987." Again, Riley's production genius was all over that era. I got a funny story on Sweat:
- A girl I was dating and her crew went to Atlanta, Georgia in the early 1990s for a festival called Freaknik. Sweat was with his crew walking downtown mid-afternoon. One of the girls recognized him and asked for a picture. He was like, "I can't stop. If you can take the picture while I'm walking then that's fine." The pic she showed me had her friend's head and smile 'only' in front of Keith's chest while he's in full stride walking. He's in an athletic sweatsuit trying to be unnoticed and these ladies were dressed for Girl's Night Out. You couldn't even see what she was wearing, just her headshot. That's how Keith was rollin' back then.
61:40 - CLASSICK. I forgot all bout' this one. Teddy Riley (feat. Tammy Lucas), "Is It Good To You 1992." 66:20 - Male vocals, "I ain't wit' it," ripple-effect Moog reverberance. 70:00 - Coda.... Entouch (feat. Keith Sweat), "All Nite 1989." That dude could do no wrong back then. https://img.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeed-static/static/2017-02/15/13/asset/buzzfeed-prod-fastlane-02/sub-buzz-6582-1487184732-29.jpg?downsize=600:*&output-format=auto&output-quality=auto
- This is a true example of how impactful the New Jack Swing (NJS) era was. Hearing this you'll understand how good the vocalists were, how catchy the beats were, and how the melodies were 'FEEL GOOD' vibez. You either went out to a club or vibed out with your crew at a party.
- You have three different movements in music that all exploded at the same time 1991-1992. These R&B/NJS club sounds (US), the grunge rock explosion (US), and breakbeat/jungle/garage (UK). You couldn't GO ANYWHERE....the 'feel good' vibez was coming out of any device that played music. Enjoy this NJS era education. (1 hr 14 mins - The New Jack Swing Era EDUCATION!)
