    Ha! My sister and I did the same thing! We had tons of videotaped videos and performances, lol.

  • this is one crazy list!!!!
    i love it!!! <3
    they don't make music like this no more

    ps - i would love to browse through your music files

  • 1995 was definitely THE year, as far as I'm concerned! Ahhhh! I'd, too, tape videos from VH-1 and also songs from the radio to play on my busted Walkman covered with duct tape.

    BTW, "Anything" by SWV had an amazing remix w/ Wu-Tang Clan!

  • Boyz II Men and Meth

    I agree with destryrider, I agree, I also love Boyz II Men Vibin' with Bustah Rhymes, Craig Mack, Treach and Method Man. I think is one of the coolest videos out there and a really rare song to get.


    La Ciudad Respira
  • Ahhh . . . I always loved Treach, even if he's responsible for the poor man's Destiny's Child, a.k.a. The Cheetah Girls formerly known as 3LW.

  • wow that vibin video brings me back!!!
    that was a welcomed study break :)

  • too bad r-n-b aint the same those were the days

  • 16. ON BENDED KNEE Boyz II Men

    I love that song SO much. I was only 5 when it came out, but I remember it really well. *sigh* The good old days of r&b...

  • wow

    It's so awesome!!! There are all the tracks that I love...Beautiful years...they'll never came back...*sob* =(
    The 1990 playlist is my favorite..I see..Someone brings back the 90s! They where great!!!

    But I forgot, on 95 playlist, Fantasy Remix - Mariah Carey feat. Ol'Dirty Bastard.....It's soooo cool!!!!! :D

    Anyway I love 90s 'cause i was born on it! xD LOL

    Bye!

  • 90s were the best times ever!

    Collinwood1000, your signature is really nice.

    Anyways, I forgot how old some of the songs in that list are. It brings back good memories. That list has given me some ideas for new songs to download.

    Luv these charts so much.

  • this takes me back soooooo much, I remember the days! the mid-late 90s were UNTOUCHABLE. kids these days don't know what they've missed :(

  • I love 90's R&B. 90's music in general was just so good.

    thanks for this charts! rnb of the 90's was really good. rnb of today that's not the same thing but everything is not bad, there are still some things which are really good (like teedra moses...i love her music)

  • Dr. Dre's "Nuthin' But A 'G' Thang" peaked at #1 on Billboard's R&B charts, and since this list is from Billboard, the folks there probably arranged songs based on chart success. Still, I love this song, whatever genre you call it!
