R&B Ballads - #4


K-Ci & JoJo - All My Life


You turned my life around
You picked me up when I was down

Woo-hoo!: Classic K-Ci and JoJo on this track. If you've been counting at home, this is their fourth mention on this list (twice by themselves and twice with Jodeci) which equals the mark of Boyz II Men (take that, Philly!). The pinnacle of this song is the beginning which goes from violin, to acapella, to piano. From there, it's a gentle down slope that goes down real smooth.

D'oh!: Even though there's supposedly only the two of them, there are all these extra voices in the background. It's probably just multiple recorded voices of K-Ci and JoJo and not the rest of Jodeci, but it's still distracting. Also, what's up with the "I'm close to you just like my (INSERT FAMILY MEMBER HERE)" line. Hope their family wasn't that close.

The Deal: If they had combined the beginning of this song with the end of "Tell Me It's Real", that may just have been the perfect song. But they'll have to be content with a couple of spots in the top 10.
