  7. It’s great to write you these few lines

    all those songs are really fabbulous

    how can I download them


    shows some of these classic videos

  9. You work wonders. Thanks

  10. awesome list – used a bunch on a slow dance CD

  11. Pretty exhaustive about including some New Kids On The Block and Milli Vanilli songs also..

    • those artsites weren’t considered r&b acts … they were more on the pop side – appreciate the feedback tho

  12. Jodeci – Freakin’u never get tired of listening to this song!

  13. love the play list

  14. Thanks 4 your help

  15. I needed sum slow jams for my ipod, this list helped a whole lot. Thanx. N its a decent top 200, I kant think of a song u missed.

  16. if you want to download go to or and a host other sites

  17. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! for this site

  18. Wow!
    You’ve GOT to be kidding!
    “I Will Always Love You”?
    The BEST ALL-TIME R&B Ballad???
    That’s not even the best WHITNEY HOUSTON ballad, by a long shot!
    Even Whitney Houston doesn’t think so, I bet.
    If this is your personal list, you must be pretty young.
    Anyway, I applaud you for trying.

  19. thx great songs

  20. curiosity by aaron hall was another one of the greats of the 90’s

    • Aaron Hall in my opinion was one of the most underrated singers of the 90s. His voice and songs were as good or better than most.

      • Ye he is underrated especially as a solo artiste. I would like to think though that persons who know about “Guy” will have a good sense of of his voice because that group was very popular and he was their lead singer.

  21. How about “I’ll Never Find Someone Like You” by Keith Martin

  22. Great stuff. I’m writing tonight but I’ll be back to explore. I’m often looking for music lists.

    Bud aka Older Eyes

  23. I am looking for the name of the song in which the chorus is:”You’re the first thing on my mind every morning you’re the last thing on my mind every night”. Please help me

  24. I am looking for a song. It’s by a man. It talks about him coming back into town and going by her house but no one knew her name. I cant remember the words used in the song. But its about him looking for her.

    • Avant: get away
      I’m back again
      in this town
      to find this girl that I used to know
      I bumped into
      a friend of hers
      and she told me where to go

  25. download song no:01

  26. Im looking for 2 songs by Phil Perry….Caravan of Love and Youre As Right As Rain

  35. do you know who made the rap song “shot out” in the 80’s

  36. First off,none of this rap/r&b/and so-called hip hop thats out now,can even hang with the 80s-mid 90sish music. Three songs ive seen left out of a lot of these r&b lists are:H-Town-Knockin Da Boots,Raab-Foreplay and Jodeci-If You Think Youre Lonely Now. Most of the hip hop/rap ones are fairly accurate with the exception of Ed OG and Da BULLDOGS-Gotta Have It.

    • I definitely agree with you.

      • you knw da song wit da lyrics ‘lets call this day our anniversary- The day I put my heart in yo hands and said it wuz yours to keep- And from this moment on you will always be mine’. And da chorus goes ‘(Baby it’s you) the way you walk, the way you talk, the way you say my name…….. Just wanna b yours- from this day forward’. Who is dat by anyway cuz I can not think of his name?

      • jesse powell – you

  37. у вашего блога прикольный диз, сами делали?

I like this post. for all those seeking for good songs, I also found a website . They have some good classics. But yea thank you for the great post. Love you

  43. nice list

  44. I’m looking for a song Wherever you go, whatever you do, I will be right here waiting for you, but it’s not the original version, it’s a version lightly speed up, a rapper rapping and a lightly singing chipmunk between the strofes, can anyone help me please? I’m looking for this song since months ! please !

  46. Trying to find the name of the female artist who sung the song called Dream Lover song came out in the 80’s it was not Mariah Carrey.

    • it’s probably either:
      liz hogue – dream lover


      richard rogers – (i’ll be your) dream lover

  47. Common Vs Drake,has reminded us all of why fueds in Hip Hop are healthy. some new hip hop artistsjust don’t have that edge that artists a decade ago had.

  48. Useful information. Lucky me I found your site by accident, and I am stunned why this coincidence did not happened earlier! I bookmarked it.
