Soulful Saturday- Boyz II Men

It may be a little cliche that I waited until February to post Boyz II Men for a Soulful Saturday, but hey, I *might* be a little cliche! :)
This super group made some serious (SERIOUS) baby making music in the 90s!! I remember going to Toledo with my church youth group and buying the tape at the mall, getting our chaperon to put the tape in (without looking at it) and singing along to "I'll Make Love to You" for exactly ONE minute before said chaperon realized what was going on and promptly removed the tape from the deck. That was an amazing song (plus I had a huge crush on Duane Martin, who is in the video-- those thick lips *sigh*).
Boyz II Men songs hold a special place in my heart and the hearts of most people that were coming of age in the early 90s. From Motown Philly to End of the Road, our teenage imaginations were set ablaze by the harmonies of these four guys. Talk about pouring your heart out to someone... OMG!! Still Amazing... wish they were touring, because I would certainly grab a ticket or two for a show!

**Note: I have omitted a song from this entry. "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" is one of my favorite Boyz II Men songs, however, it was played at my brother-in-law's funeral and I have yet to be able to play that song since without crying. It is a great song, so please feel free to find it online... I just can't do it yet. RIP Daryl**

I'll Make Love To You

*tonight is just your night...
*pour the wine, light the fire, girl, your wish is my command-- I submit to your demands-- I'll do anything, girl you need only ask.
*I'm just gon concentrate on you...

On Bended Knee :)

Four Seasons of Loneliness
*Life's empty without you, by my side... My heart belongs to you, no matter what I try.

End of The Road
*We belong together and you know that I'm right
*Said we'd be forever, said it'd never die
*Although we've come to the end of the road, still I can't let go
*It's so natural, You belong to me, I belong to you
** And watch out for the guy talking** :)
