I read a post the other day where the author said she was not comfortable doing the [tag]music[/tag] meme making the [tag]blogging[/tag] rounds, because music was such an intensely personal thing.
I haven’t done it because, quite frankly, I have terrible taste in music.
I will admit it, I LOVE music from the 90’s. If I have any XM station on, its the [tag]90’s[/tag] channel. And nothing excites me more than turning the radio on and finding out they are doing the 90’s flashback segment.
This wouldn’t be so terrible to admit, if the music from the 90’s hadn’t been so. damn. awful. Have you ever gone back and listened to it?
“All I wanna do is zoom-a-zoom-zoom-zoom and a poom-poom – JUST SHAKE
Huh? what is a poom-poom, and do I really even want to know?
The Mac Dad will make you Jump Jump
The Daddy Mac will make you Jump Jump
Kris Kross will make you Jump Jump “
“I came to get down [2x]
So get out your seats and jump around
Jump around [3x]
Jump up Jump up and get down.
Apparently there was a LOT of jumping going on back then, but I don’t remember doing any of it.
“Informer, you no say daddy me snow me I’ll go blame,
A licky boom boom down.
Detective mon said daddy me snow me stab someone down the lane,
A licky boom boom down.”
I don’t think any of us ever figured out the lyrics to this one.
And one that I still love, from Boyz II Men ‘End of the Road’
“Girl, I’m here for you
All those times of night when you just hurt me
And just ran out with that other fella
Baby I knew about it, I just didn’t care
You just don’t understand how much I love you do you?
I’m here for YOU
I’m not out to go out and cheat on you all night
Just like you did baby but that’s all right “
Thats all right?? If this song were written today, the guy would have bitch slapped her and wished herpes on her and still found some way to make it rhyme.
So yeah, I admit it, I love 90’s music, as awful as it was. You’ll have to excuse me now, I have to go pick my daughter up from school, and they’ve been playing “Can’t Touch This” at around 3:05 every afternoon.
