Yes I remember that song I still have the video recorded on VHS from the BET days when they played music videos almost 24/7.


Stevie Wonder- "skeletons"

Re: Post your old school song for today, Pt. 2

I just found out about her a week or so ago. She reminds me a lot of Erykah Badu.

BTW, I like your Stevie Wonder song. I saw the video for it on BET Soul a few years ago. I remember the good ole days of BET when it came to music. I used to stay up late on Friday nights so I could watch Midnight Love.

Hey guys! Vote for Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill!

http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000051/nest/258078629


This is the commentary from the poster Swill_Merchant, the creator of that thread.


My Vote: Soft yea. She's not really doing anything original here, apart from making old school grooves palatable to The Kids These Days (such as they were in the late 90's), but it does have its charms, albeit safe ones. Hill's vocals are perfectly ordinary, her rapping is agreeably skillful, the skits are the usual boring wasteful tripe...but the production is subtle and sublime. Her work was much better with the Fugees, and it is rather ironic to catch her chiding her former pals for selling out considering this album is so much more transparently commercial than anything they released after disbanding. The help she gets from D'Angelo and Mary J. Blige pays major dividends. Best song: Superstar, probably (although there is still a faint air of hypocrisy in it). Honest question: is it really much better than most black female R&B from that period?


Don't play games with a girl who can play better.
