One Hit Wonders...



Does anybody remember these guys? This group was from DC and came out with this one song in 1995 and then they disappeared. This was the JAM for a couple weeks.

There's TONS of good music from one hit wonders. What are some other One-Hit classic songs?

The 90's saw some of the best R&B and HipHop, IMHO. If you play just about any rap or r&b joint from the 90's I know all the words. But nowadays I don't even bother memorizing them. The words aren't worth it, for most songs anyway.

I am FROM DC and I don't vaguely remember he chorus of this song.


The wife and I were in the mall yesterday and I heard "I Wish" by Skee-Lo ...

used ... to ... be ... my ... SH*T!

I heard that Skee-lo song the other day.

Remember Ahmad's "Back in the Day"?

I heard that Skee-Lo this past Friday night. This is scary. What are the odds?

That Ahmad song was straight. I remember I bought that tape from a dude in middle school for $1 and then he wouldn't give me my money back.

What u know about that "I Got A Man" by Positive K or "Blackberry Molasses" by Mista?

Gene said...

This is seriously scary ... what are the chances? But then again, our ears are the kind that would easily pick up some mid-90s rap. LOL.


Yes, KB. LOVED Back in the day.

Did Crucial Conflict do anything besides "Hay?"

Rell said...

wow, me and Gene posted at the same time...

Gene said...

LOL at Rell. Crazy ... and sad, cause I'm still at work and shouldn't be blogging! LOL.

"What u know about that "I Got A Man" by Positive K or "Blackberry Molasses" by Mista?"

I Got A Man is listed in the current issue of Vibe as one of the 50 top duets of all time, but it turns out that Positive K did the girl's voice himself. They just sped it up. WHO KNEW?!

And I remember when my little brother called me a few months ago after seeing the Blackberry video on VH1 Soul. He was like, "Bobby Valentino was in that group!" I was like you're late, kid. LOL. Real late.

"Did Crucial Conflict do anything besides "Hay?" "

A few songs, but none worth mentioning. Anyway I listened to Hay at least 10 times Friday on YouTube. My FAVORITIST line was,

"Thank you Jesus Christ for all the hay you've given us!"

CLASSIC.

Brandon said...

I think they had a song called "Scummy" but Hay was by far the ONLY hit that they had.

Brandon said...

@ GENE... NIGGA YOU LYIN!!!! NUH UH... THAT WAS A REAL HOOD CHICK!!!! AND NOTHING THAT YOU SAY WILL MAKE ME BELIEVE THAT POSITIVE K DID THAT VOICE

Gene said...

JAMES -
If I hadn't read it myself, I wouldn't have believed it! It is song number 29:

That man had the ghetto girl intonation and phrasing DOWN!

Rell said...

that's just weird -- I always though her voice was kind of ummmm tight...

I think I'll go throw up now

Brandon said...

WOW! I just closed my eyes and listened to it on youtube and...you're right. I've been bamboozled all these years. I always wondered why the byline never said "Positive K f/ MC High Pitched Hood Chick"... that damn Postive K!

Gene said...

Rell, I was fooled too. I mean even if they sped it up, he had all the "attitude" and extra stuff. I just refuse to believe that nigga wasn't putting his hand on his hip and doing a neck roll while in the studio with that joint. SMH.

K.B. said...

WOW - didn't know about the Positive K song, either.

K.B. said...

Mad Lion - Take it Easy

Channel Live - Madizm

(Those were more like one-underground-hit wonders)

Tag Team - Whoomp (There it is)

95 South - Whoot (There it is)

Deuce - Dazzy Dukes

EU - Da Butt

69 Boys - Tootsie Roll

Sir Mix-a-lot - I don't even have to name the song

Jim Jones - Ballin'

(Those are just wack songs that were big at one point)

(And these are random R&B chicks that I haven't heard from in years)

Mokenstef - He's Mine

Divine - Lately

Jade - Don't Walk Away

(Two Hit Wonders)

Soul 2 Soul - Back to Life/ Keep on Movin'

Kut Klose - I Like/ Get Up On It

Brownstone - Grapevine/If You Love Me

C&C Music Factory - Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)/ Things That Make You Go Hmmmm

That's it for now. I got bored at work and just started typing. I thought of all these in 10 min. I think it's because many of them remind me of each other.

Rell said...

What was that song that Sadat made?

Funk that?

K.B. said...

Sybil - Don't Make Me Over

Gene said...

You wrong for calling out Jim Jones, KB. Wrong.


I listen to Kut Klose and Brownstone on YouTube at least once every two weeks. Brownstone also had this hit called 5 Miles to Empty that did well on the R&B charts, but most people still missed it.


I saw Snoop's wife on a documentary about hip hop wives talking about groupies and she quoted the Mokenstef song. I was like, "Your a$$ is clearly TOO old to be beefing, if that's your comeback."

DGood said...

LMAO about Jim Jones Ballin'! That will definitely be the one and ONLY hit for that brotha. What about Laffy Taffy by D4L and Knockin the boots by H-Town.

Brandon said...

I hear you Good, but D4L had "Betcha Can't Do It Like Me" and a whole gang of other hits. Besides the preceding sentence being complete bullshit, I think the H-Town knockin the boots is a good call. Oh the memories...
