We've fielded complaints about the heavy slant toward very old stuff. It's understandable -- after all, the name of this blog was meant to pay tribute to Cameo and Aaliyah, and there has been a lot more attention paid to the era of the former than the era of the latter. What have I liked from this year? A bunch of stuff, honest... little of which is coming to mind right now. I hope to eventually do some form of a roundup, but not before a post about the brilliance of Howard Johnson's "Knees" and the ?!?!?-ness of Bobby Nunn's "Hangin' Out at the Mall." In the meantime, there's some chatter about Amerie and Janet here
, and there will be talk about Teedra in roughly the same spot tomorrow. It's also worth noting that Teena -- who is 50, 50 years old! -- made one of the best G-funk songs I have ever heard in my entire life, and it's on an album she released this year.
