Subject: Boyz II Men song poll

Written By: eightiesfan on 11/01/04 at 1:39 pm

I pick "Motownphilly" because I think it's a really cool hip-hop song; I also like "It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday" which was written for their manager who was killed in 1992.

I picked On Bended Knee. I love them. As a philly native, I'm so proud of them. However, "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye" is a cover, not an original song by them. It was on the Cooley High soundtrack from the same 1970's movie. It was dedicated to their murdered manager. I also liked "Little Things" from their first album.

Did Boyz II Men have a song w/ that name? That ain't one I've ever heard of. But I do know that KWS had a song with that title in '92; it was very repetitive.

Yes, it's on their first album "CooleyHighHarmony". It's a slow song about an impending break-up.

Thanks, Tanya.  ;)

"Please Don't Go" was the first song I ever heard by them (it was early, 1992). Actually I never knew who did that song until about 2 years later and was surprised to find out it was B2M. It's still the only song by them I like...

"Water Runs Dry". I remember when it originally came out. It was a good '90s song. I heard it on the radio a couple of times last week.

What the heck, they now have two songs I like.  ;)

"Water Runs Dry".  "On Bended Knee" is a close second.

In no particular order:

"On Bended Knee"
"I'll Make Love To You"
"Motownphilly"

I picked "End of the Road", I also like Motown Philly.  I saw them in concert in 95' (mabey 96'?)
and they were really good. Very harmonious :)

Written By: alyceclover on 10/20/05 at 7:02 am

that's tough...can eliminate In The Still of the Night, don't remember them doing it; growing up 'Philly' (AM radio station), and like ex-Pres Clinton said, "motown soundtrack of my life",  of course, that song was meaningful to me, & happy memories, forgotten.  8) of Dennis, return (dancing, laughing, talkin' 'bout music), saying Goodbye...is ok, but brings up sad memories when Dennis & Dawn came to the End of The Road of their 8 year relationship  :(; I'll Make Love To You On Bended Knee are "I wish" I had a guy so in love like that  :) Sweet forever reminder of Willie whose wife died, but was listening to it B-4 meeting him, it's got a really good 'word to the wise' message in there...on the poll I choose "End of the Road" because I like the music, and the way it's done, so that the emotional pain is loud & clear....

I'm not too big of a fan of Boyz II Men, but "I'll Make Love to You" is a pretty good song because it came out in a good time in my life.
