R&B Ballads - #17

Keith Sweat - Nobody

1996

I promise to give it to you just the way you like

Woo-hoo!: Who can love their man and woman like these people? The answer to that is "Nobody." Keith Sweat and Athena Cage (bonus points for her cool name) work together well on this song. I like the part where after "And the band keeps playing on" when they repeat 'on' multiple times.

D'oh!: A bit too much hubris (an arrogance due to excessive pride and an insolence toward others) from these fools. Nobody? Seriously, you think you're the best ever? They should have something like the Olympics (or Spellympics) for people who think they are the best at doing this stuff. Might be a little X-rated though.

The Deal: You won't be seeing "Twisted", another good Keith Sweat song, on this countdown. It's good, but doesn't establish itself in my genre.

Keith sweat suuure does have a funny voice. He kinda sounds nasally/pubescent?

Ok, really nasally. Someone buy this guy some Dayquil. No, scratch that. Some Nyqul so he falls asleep and can't sing anymore.

Juuust kidding. In spite of him singing out of his nose, I like his music. Don't ask me why, I just do.

And how, exactly, does "Twisted" not qualify for this "genre"? Is it too fast? Like Paul Coffey?
