This song. Those first few notes on the trumpet.
TLC’s Crazy Sexy Cool came out when I was fourteen years old. In 1994. Twenty freaking years ago!
And you know what? It still sounds as amazing as it did when I was in the 9th grade. It sounds better than 95% of the crap they play on the radio today. When my sister bought the CD for me, I was in heaven. I listened to it constantly on our disc man (remember those things?). I can still sing along to this day. I mean, I barely remember legal terms but these song lyrics are burned into my brain.
Here’s a bonus track for you, probably my favourite song on the album, Diggin’ On You:
I loved that TLC were strong, unique, talented women who didn’t rely on their sexuality to be popular and successful.
Ok. One more. Waterfalls. I still get chills when I hear this song. I used to rap along with Left Eye, may she rest in peace. When I say I’d rap, I’d do so in private, of course. I knew better than to subject human ears to that hideous sound.
Happy Thursday, y’all! Just one more day till the weekend!
