I work too many hours at work apparently, and almost didn’t have enough time to do this. Luckily they cut me a break. It’s a good thing too, because I was just about to go postal. This was what I needed to calm down.

In The Raw and She’s Strange are some serious forces to be reckoned with, since they have great high school memories for me. While Slave and Prince are serious grooves (of course), Isaac Hayes’ Three Tough Guys: Hung Up On My Baby should sound familiar to you, especially since it was sampled by a hip-hop track you should be familiar with.
I’m waiting to see who comes up with it first.
After Michael Jackson’s hit, there’s a cut from Deniece Williams that was seldom played, I Found Love, as was Angela’s What I Wouldn’t Do (For The Love Of You). Roberta Flack, Atlantic Starr, and of course Rose Royce are recognizable, I’m sure, but what about Supernatural? Rounding out the mix, we have Lisa Stansfield and Mica Paris.
Special thanks to Thierno and Coach MVP down there in South Alabama for the special touches. Hope you enjoy.
