    • 10. Never Lie by Immature
      Immature was (and still is) my favorite group in the 90's....I basically grew up with them.
    • 9. All Cried Out by Allure feat. 112
      Beautiful love song.
    • 8. Red Light Special by TLC
      That was one of my favorite songs in '95.
    • 7. Who Can I Run To by Xscape
      I'm still crazy about that song!
    • 6. Weak by SWV
      I LOVE that song!
    • 5. Mo Money, Mo Problems by Notorious B.I.G feat. Puff Daddy & Mase
      That was the JAM in '97!
    • 4. All My Life by K-ci & Jo Jo
      Sweet, sweet love song.
    • 3. Feel The Funk by Immature
      This song was on the "Dangerous Minds" Soundtrack....Immature was sooo fine!
    • 2. California Love by Tupac Shakur
      Tupac was HOTT...need I say more?
    • 1. Waterfalls by TLC
      Everyone should listen to this song because it sends an important message about domestic violence and unsafe sex.

    Immature is still around today, only their name changed to IMx...2 of the members are doing their solo albums, Marques Houston(from "Sister, Sister") and Young Rome(used to be Romeo)....check out Marques' album "MH", and look out for Young Rome's album "Food For Thought" in June!
