30 day song challenge: day 13 – a song that is a guilty pleasure

*I'm taking the song challenge to mean "of all time," not genre-specific. Any of these songs are subject to change at any time.

I've been waiting for an opportunity to post this song and honestly, I should post this once a week because HELL IF IT ISN'T AWESOME. I'm going to try to contain my excitement and not use all caps for this post, but I FREAKING LOVE THIS SONG. In fact, I may have to change my ringtone to this one because THE MEN ALL PAUSE, BABY. First, a little history: back in 1986 I bought a tape by Klymaxx for the song "I Miss You" and was blown away by the nerve of this group. Klymaxx was like the female version of Morris Day and The Time. FOR REAL. They had attitude and plenty of it. Best lines of the song "‘cause they all loved me/Slap me, no, somebody slap me/‘cause I know I'm lookin' good/I'm givin' attitude all over the room/People are starin' at me/I-I-I just look too good for these people."

And I think you know that's how I feel every time I walk into a room. 

We're not even going to talk about the fact that I was 12 buying a tape by a group called Klymaxx. 

"The Men All Pause"

 

"I love ya, I love ya all, but I got to go."
