The albums started to get some life with Red Light Special with its sexy trashiness and it got to even higher grounds with Waterfalls (both the song and the video)
This one is on FanMail. :)
Lol so that's why i dont like it and don't even remember where it was on :oops: :lol: it's still very silly to me :P don't pay attention to my silliness :D

I absolutely loved this song when I first heard it, but it became so overplayed. I still like it now, but when I listen to it, it almost feels like background noise because I'm just so used to it. I never get excited to hear it any more.

It's a classic from them... but the "CrazySexyCool" era beats "FanMail" by a long shot.

I love that Kandi was a writer on both this & Bills, Bills, Bills. The word 'scrub' itself is hilarious, this is definitely a late 90s staple.

This set the trend for the many man-hater anthems in the late 1990s! :lol: :lol:

This song is a classic, I must have listened to it a thousand times and I'm still not sick of it. I was completely obsessed with it and with the video, then "Unpretty" came out and the same thing happened. I ended up buying "FanMail" and I loved it, which is weird because many R&B albums are a bit too repetitive and kind of boring, but I thought "FanMail" was pretty much perfect.

One of my least favorite singles from TLC. It's so annoying and repetitive... :roll:

I was so happy to watch Chilli and T'Boz perform this live here last year, it doesn't get old.

Those iconic guitar chords at the start (and that linger throughout the song) were the unofficial sound of the ghetto for the longest time! (of course, this sound was replicated tirelessly even by artists who didn't even fit in that mold :roll:) This and "Angel of Mine" (Monica's version) were some of the first songs to use this production technique with "We Belong Together" being one of the last that I can remember.

What a spectacularly crap comment. And a bad attempt at trolling, too.
Trolling because I don't like a song? Try again sis. This isn't even an Ed Sheeran topic. If I wanna troll, I would post in there.

Geez, so defensive over another person's opinion. Spectacular.
