I Like the Waaaay...

So besides David Koresh, Waco's only other claim to fame is the R & B group, Hi-Five. Can I just say that I LOVED Hi-Five, especially Tony Thompson (R.I.P.) I had their greatest hits CD (I'm not sure if three albums qualify for a greatest hits CD, but I sure did have it) and knew all of their songs by heart. About 3/5 of the group were cuties, and with Teddy Riley's production they had some classic hits. "Quality Time," "She's Playing Hard to Get," but my favorite was "I Like the Way (Kissing Game)." I was all of probably 8 years old when this came out but it's so innocent and sweet. Makes me think of my first crush, Charles Clark. Ah, the grade school memories!

Video Moments: 1) The dance intro at the beginning - we seriously would be at recess doing this as part of our dance routines. 2) Are there jackets really only closed by one button? 3) What's with the juggling of the fire?

I get it in with Hi Five too...

I didn't know they were from Waco or that T. Riley was behind them. The latter doesn't surprise me after listening to their sound.

(How did TR go broke again?)

This was my favorite joint from them too... I'm gonna need you to stop playing and do my Soul 4 Real post.

This was my joint too!

The best part about your throwback Thursday is that we didn't have cable when I was a shorty, so while I remember a lot of songs, I've never seen some of these videos.

Back when cotton turtlenecks were hot on men... LOL!

@ TT: TR is broke? Dang...

@ T: Yes, I was trying to figure out if that was a turtleneck or a dickie, lol!
