meme from d. smith! music from the year i graduated high school... and more!

1. The Sign, Ace Of Base
i sorta remember this one. what was i doing then? hell who knows

2. I Swear, All-4-One
these cats confused the hell outta me! they had two different boy groups put out a video with the exact same song (same vocals) and then they picked the less attractive ones to carry on with this horrible name. ick

3. I'll Make Love To You, Boyz II Men
yup. i remembered this one. hell. still do. had a thang for the lead singer. he was short and stocky. i like my men that way. rarely date them though -- wonder why? maybe if they would've sang this damn song to me it would've been on and CRACKING! lol

4. The Power Of Love, Celine Dion
she can sign her ass off. though my grandmother liked her more than me. only time i heard this bad boy was when she played it at the house or when i was channel surfing.

5. Hero, Mariah Carey
loved mariah like cooked food then - hated the song. knew it was a ploy at that Whitney "beleive the children are our future" crap. nobody believes in the children. everybody sucks! sorry - i had a flashback of teaching in the NY Public School System

7. Breathe Again, Toni Braxton
dope song. remember when she had shemar moore in the video. just to set the record straight he was born on april 20th (yup - my bday) and hes from oakland. can u say kismet muthasucka?

8. All For Love, Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart and Sting
9. All That She Wants, Ace Of Base
sorta remembered this during Kennedy's High School Homecoming. we made fun of the kids that danced like Carlton from Fresh Prince.

10. Don't Turn Around, Ace Of Base
still laughing at their expense. though, i honestly liked this one in the confines of my own home.

11. Bump N' Grind, R. Kelly
loved this song. i had many a hump on the dance floor to this tune. i dont remember his name - but it was new year's. and he was holding onto my ass like he would fall off he didn't. and i pretended that his lil' hard thing was sexy and not annoying.

12. Again, Janet Jackson
i practiced every dance move this chica put onto video. i had the dances down like whoa. watch out now!

13. I'll Remember, Madonna
14. Whatta Man, Salt-N-Pepa
this was the jam! whatta man whatta man whatta man, what a mighty good man!!! remember Pac in this joint? and i actually thought Treach was sexy till i met him years later at a club in New York City. his drunken stupor told me he wasn't whatta man, but whatta drunk. whatta lush. whatta bust. go sit down somewhere.

16. Without You / Never Forget You, Mariah Carey
17. You Mean The World To Me, Toni Braxton
oooooh baby, baby, baby, baby, babbbbby! cause you mean so much to me!

19. The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, Prince Symbol
dominque dawes killed this video. and prince was not so bad hisself. at the moment this came out -- i wanted to be the most beautiful girl in the world. but he was too busy talking to that singer chick and pissing me off. i remember that well.

20. Fantastic Voyage, Coolio
loved this. yea, i know. its wack. but i was cali pride bursting through my pores. sue me!

22. Regulate, Warren G and Nate Dogg
mount up! this was hilarious. the video, the boys at my school that wanted to be nate dogg. yes!
24. Back and Forth, Aaliyah
so i was already rocking the do-rag and locs. it was courtesy of BOSS. but she made it more feminine. i fell head over heels learning the rock back n forth dance!

26. When Can I See You, Babyface
cute. sad. we were fighting alot during this song. me and myhigh school sweatheart. i ran over his foot with the car. then he chased me down to apologize. very wuthering heights.

28. So Much In Love, All-4-One
29. Shoop, Salt-N-Pepa
girls what's my weakness? men! ok this was kindergarten rap. but it was salt and pepa with spinderella! yea

30. Any Time, Any Place / And On And On, Janet Jackson
31. Shine, Collective Soul

34. All I Wanna Do, Sheryl Crow
35. Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm, Crash Test Dummies
36. Can We Talk, Tevin Campbell
love this one. back then, i thought flannel vests were really cool. bought myself two of them. wanted to cut my hair like the chick in the video. had my schoolfriend yvonne cut it in her mother's kitchen, cause i couldnt afford to go to the salon. it looked like someone put a bowl on my head and cut, then feathered it. niiice

37. Funkdafied, Da Brat
she sounded like a dope
38. I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That), Meat Loaf
didnt remember this til the dr pepper commerical. then i thought it was great!

39. Gangsta Lean, Drs
so i gotta tell this story. the dudes that sang this were from the capitol of cali (sacramento) and we were at the pool hall when one of the dudes from this group walked in. and we were like "hey" and he was like "eh" and we were like "you are that dude from DRS! sing the song!" and he was like "in that gangsta lean! that gangsta..." and he tried to make a grand exit out of the side door, when the door jam and his face smashed into the glass plate "leannnnnn" he crumbled. before smirking, blushing and shuffling outta the main entrance.

42. Whoomp! (There It Is), Tag Team
it was too close to WHOOT there it is. i was confused and refused to participate in any of this crap until it was echoed at the Arco Arena during a Kings home game.

44. Stroke You Up, Changing Faces
loved them.

45. I'm Ready, Tevin Campbell
loved this.

47. Anytime You Need A Friend, Mariah Carey
48. Because Of Love, Janet Jackson

52. Gin And Juice, Snoop Doggy Dogg
this was when house parties were popp'n like fish grease. my boyfriend and i cut a patch of grass clean with this snoop tune. Dre was back in business and Cali moral was up at an all-time high!

53. Never Lie, Immature
55. Getto Jam, Domino
is he singing. is he rapping? is it sapping or r'singing? kept a party moving nonetheless. but after two songs (that sound suspiciously alike, where is he?"

56. Endless Love, Luther Vandross and Mariah Carey
57. I Miss You w/ Aaron Hall
he lost his wife in the video! she died during birth of their child and he replaced her with two rockwielers? then i found out he was a deadbeat dad and a women beater. that's just great fukn mr hall! ruin the fantasy that i've had since 12th grade you fukn' fuk!

58, Understanding, Xscape
hip hop dressed sopranos. they were the wierdest looking group of girls! i thought they were a gang called UGLEE. liked the song though. and the 4 remixes that followed.

59. This D.J., Warren G
60. Cry For You, Jodeci
every man after this song was released, had a chance if he could just sing like K-Ci and looked like DeVante. ok. if his nane was DeVante or anything with a "D" that ended with "te" had a chance!

61. Keep Ya Head Up, 2Pac
RIP - felt like the man that supported the degradation of women had finally seen errors in his ways. then he released i get around. i danced to that song too. call me feminist interrupted!

64. Your Body's Callin', R. Kelly

66. I Can See Clearly Now, Jimmy Cliff
beautiful. this made me think of elevators and shopping in the produce isle of Bel-Air.

67. Never Keeping Secrets, Babyface
yea. that's what they say after they get caught! this is what was playing when i found out about the ex calling my boyfriend. i stepped to her and she replied "we are like brother's and sisters!" i replied. "so you believe in incest?"

68. Crazy, Aerosmith
i loved this video! alicia silverstone was in the video with Liv and i was trying to figure out if she was gay or having a bad day getting over the asshole. i hated MTV for blurring out the middle finger scene. damn them!

70. At Your Best (You Are Love), Aaliyah
one of the few well executed remakes.

74. Groove Thang, Zhane
they were bald. they were beautiful. they could sing. i felt pretty again.
