Even though I am a self professed 80’s kid, weaned on Nintendo and MTV, in reality I’m really a 90’s kid. My formative years, ages 11 through 20 were spent in this decade. So when Jen announced that this week’s Twisted Mixtape was dance music in honor of a fellow blogger’s brother who recently passed away, I got excited. It was a chance to go back and re-listen to songs I haven’t heard in a while. So to honor his memory and his love of club music, I give you my favorites from the 90’s.
Nothing got me up and moving more than this song in the early 90’s. Shanice’s “I Love Your Smile” had all that cutesy bubble gum flavor to it that an 11 year girl loves.
I had to it, I really did. Every time I see Mark Walhberg in a movie I have to sing this song in my head. I told the husband if I ever met Mr. Marky Mark I was going to ask him to sign the autogragh “Love Marky Mark”. The Husband said I would probably get throat punched if I did that. I still think it’s funny though. If you’ll do anything to be famous don’t surprised when it comes back to haunt you later.
I remember back when the Hubby and I were just dating and as usual we had the radio on driving around. By this point, I was comfortable with being myself, either that or I just didn’t care anymore so when the chorus came on I yelled out “OH” and he nearly jumped out of his skin. I guess he and his friends didn’t do that when that song came on…
Now I don’t know a damn thing about how south central does it? I really don’t know how any place does it or what exactly they do but I do love this song.
“I came to win, battle me it’s a sin.” You ever hear someone sing or rap a song and you never expected it before? That was the Hubby with me on this song. It was a lot like this moment in “The Proposal” but the Husband knows I’m crazy so that’s okay.
I had about five more songs that I wanted to add. I could really go on for days in this category but maybe I will save it for another post. Of the five songs I had left of my off the top of my head list, this one had to make the cut. No diggity, no doubt. Play on Playas.
