Old School Friday #50 ~New Edition~

Hi There Bloggers!!
You Know What today is… Old School Friday!
In case you are new around these parts and don’t know what “Old School Friday” is, well it is grown folks MUSIC! Yes we post some music that comes from some time before 1999, (hopefully) to relive some memories, and to educate or just entertain each other.
Ms Grapevine and MarvalusOne have teamed up to create a meme titled Old School Friday and since I love my music I had to sign up to join! To join in the Old School Friday Fun go Here for guidelines.

You Tube tried to make this theme impossible because after going through TEN different videos I kept getting the same message “Embedding disabled by request”. I was so disappointed because I thought this was really going to be easy. See, all the OSF participants know that PRINCE has all of his videos on lock, so we expect that, but I had no clue that New Edition locked down their videos also. No! No! No! You can take Prince but at least leave me New Edition…Pleaseeeeeeee. Very disappointing…. But I found a way! HA!

    I have heard most of New Edition’s music from OSF and I’m not sure why that is. Mine is up also, but it’s my final OSF.You know I’ll be around!

    Can You Stand the Rain, should be on every blog today. That’s when they finally got they’re grown man on.Still in Love is great because it was the first album with all six members, and although they didn’t get along, they sure made a hit…

    Great choice. “I’m Still in Love With You” is a beautiful video and I know that if I’d heard the song when it was climbing the charts I would have liked it.Also like your Black History widget at the top and will probably grab it.How do you get OSF people to add your blog to their list? I’ve been participating about four Fridays now but I think only two or three people put me on their list.

    Yeah, what is it about this dumb disabling by request movement??? Hey, where’d they get those videos in the first place? A lot of the “disablers” aren’t the groups themselves!Good for you, you got around it!

    I knew “Can You Stand The Rain” would be popular today – as it should be!!And “I’m Still In Love With You” was classy, grown NE. I played the album last night to get me in my NE zone!

    Can You Stand the Rain is my favorite NE song after the addition of Johnny Gill. He worked his part of the song. 🙂

    It looks like most of the ladies who participated in this OSF picked “Can You Stand the Rain”. Even though I didn’t select it, it is a damn good ballad. I’m glad to see you found a “You Tube workaround”. I have found that Daily Motion is a pretty good source for clips. The video quality seems to be a little better as opposed to You Tube as well.
