27 Songs To 27: 1994

Who's ready for a slow jam? This song brings so many memories of all the boy band clich├ęs... and I for one, am all for it! Here's to the decade that was brought up through harmonies. When I think of boy bands of the 90s, it's easy to say 'Backstreet Boys' and '*NSYNC.' While those bands are the popular choice, Boyz II Men and this band were the standard for crooning romance.

Perhaps everyone is asking the same question: what is love? Let's get bumping with today's song:

27 Songs To 27: 1992

Just turned one, and I am still not familiar with music. Growing up with the radio, I would usually hear the remix of this song; listening to the original took me some time to get comfortable without the rap portions.

But the song still has a relevant message today: looking for a love that will last. Silly as it sounds, this song affected me when I was watching a TV show where the character was focusing on self-love - and that's where the song hit me.
