Best song on CrazySexyCool by TLC

Message Bookmarked

This TLC album is now 12 years old, but remains a classic. If only Lisa was still around to take on Beyonce's empire..

I've removed the various "ludes" so that everybody doesn't vote for Chilli asking for tissue to wipe her ass..

I should also mention - Beyonce ripped off TLC's version of If I Was Your Girlfriend in the Jay-z song '03 Bonnie and Clyde. I'm aware it's a Prince song, but she sings it as if she's directly sampled the TLC recording!

N.B. I have nothing against Beyonce, and I love Jay-z - I just found that a little strange when I first heard B&C.

I loved Switch because I adore Left Eye's rap, with SWTWC & IIWYG as a close second and third.

It's probably not the best, but I'm gonna show "Let's Take Our Time" some love. That little wheedly synth sound throughout is A+.

Something that's occurred to me.... I distinctly remember "Kick Your Game" getting lots of radio play late in the album's promotion and maybe "Case of the Fake People" did too, but I can't seem to find any evidence of them being pushed, is this just me?

Don't go making phony calls
Please stick to the seven digit numbers you're used to
I know that you think its funny driving folks right up the wall
But its really getting old fast

one year passes...

How great is the drum programming on "Waterfalls"? There's that mid-pitched drum that kinda rattles in place and old that dusty-ass sampled drumroll

this has always been "Red LIght Special" for me but "Diggin' on You" is all sorts of warm feelings too

The single/video version of 'Diggin' on You' was the better one.

"Red Light Special" sounds so sad to me.

Switch wuz robbed

This album is the best album.

I kinda understand why it got no votes (hard to go past the singles) but "Kick Your Game" and "Case of the Fake People" and "Let's Do It Again" each deserved some love.

case of the fake people is one of my fav productions of the era
