Song Stuck In My Head: Diggin' The Scene...It's On Like That

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

My week last week was less than fabulous, and this week looks like it's continuing on that streak as my Chi flat iron decided to die on me today (hello, frizz!). So to instantly make me feel like a gabillion bucks I put on TLC's 1994 album, CrazySexyCool, and got caught in a wave a of nostalgia. Crazy Sexy Cool is one of those albums that never gets old, it's clearly is the Songs In The Key Of Life or The White Album of my generation, one of those albums that comes around every once in awhile that just smacks you across the face with it's greatness. While the whole album is diamond, "Diggin' On You" has always been one of my favorites off it. It's got that laid-back Babyface vibe, and some fun word play ("I was chillin' with my Kool-Aid, when Miss Chili came to relay") amid a nice soulful groove. I just can't believe that this album and song are about 15 years old..., I clearly remember going to Sam Goody and begging my Dad to get this CD for me...where has the time gone?



Finally an embeddable version of this video!....I dig this vid, something about the big band sound takes this song to another level...As a barrette and overall wearing kiddo I used to always sing Chili's part out loud into my Crayola marker, well, I still do, cause I did it just now...Man, I wish I had seen TLC live

    That album was part of what I like to call my Four-Way Trip Into R&B Greatness: along with Mariah Carey's "Music Box", Janet's "Janet." and En Vogue's "Funky Divas".

    Ahhh, the good old days. They just don't make R&B like that anymore.

  2. Agreeeee!! They sure don't make R&B like that anymore, hell they don't have any R&B groups anymore...they are truly extinct or something.
