Yes, folks. Here it is: the Throwback Thursday so nice we had to do it twice, lmao! Last week was, without a doubt, my favorite Throwback Thursday in the history of Throwback Thursdays (ssshhhh, don’t tell Lil Wayne, The Neptunes, P!nk, or Mariah Carey). I mean, seriously. Was it not the best? Haven’t you been listening to it all week? Aren’t you still dutty wining in front of your two year-old even though that’s a little bit inappropriate? I know you are, lmao! And because PITNBr Emily and I had waaayyyy too many songs to fit on one list, I saved some for this week. Click inside for more!
1. Shabba Ranks, Ting-A-Ling
PITNBr Fifi4life will cut me if Shabba doesn’t get a top spot, since he didn’t make it on last week’s list. LMAO, don’t cut me girl!
2. UB40, Red Red Wine
OMG, I wish I smoked marijuana right now… lmao! No, but seriously. Who needs pot when you have music like this?! This is the perfect song, with the most perfect, mellow beat. I cannot believe how Throwback this is, and how young I must have been jamming to this in my room crazy loud until my Mom came knocking, except she probably let me get away with blasting this one.
3. Chaka Demus & Pliers, Murder She Wrote
4. Shaggy feat. Ravon, Summertime
We had a few Shaggy songs on the last Throwback Thursday, but it’s been so ridiculously gorgeous in NY for the last week. A little Summertime is in order.
5. DMX feat. Sean Paul & Mr. Vegas, Top Shotta
Absolutely my favorite song from the Belly soundtrack. Absolutely one of the dopest beats ever in the history of everdom. Absolutely used to put this ish on repeat for 35-45 minutes a day. And yes, DMX is insane. That’s just how I liked him– insane, but still capable of making good music. Sigh.
