It’s Day 2 of music dedication week here on the blog. There’s so much music out there that I’ve decided to split it up into two parts. This week it’ll be all about us ladies and the next time I do a music dedication week, it’ll be all about the men. Highlighted today are five female groups from the 80s & 90s.
T-Boz, Left Eye and Chili were the group to beat back in the day…they were hip and they were trendsetters. Left-Eye is missed.
This was probably one of the best girl groups of the time. When this group broke up it shocked everyone. I would love to see a reunion CD with all the original members.
We all paused when we saw a group of women who not only sang but played all the instruments in the band. Whether they were singing “The Men All Pause” or my other favorite “Divas Need Love Too” Klymaxx is one of my top favorite groups from this time.
These Jermaine Dupree proteges were hip and could sang their butts off. This is another group I hate broke up. Tiny’s been in the news because of her famous rapper boyfriend TI and one of the other ladies has been doing well as a songwriter. This is one of my favorites-Am I Dreaming – a collaboration with the group Ol’ School
Mary Jane Girls
I had to add this group because me and high school friends performed one of their songs in a talent show. I thought I was grown.
Honarable Mention – Total
Members want to go solo. You hear maybe one CD and then nothing from them or the rest of the group. That’s been the fate of quite a few of the groups out from this period.
Who are some of your favorite girl groups from the 80s and 90s?
