In which Eric McClanahan lists his 5 favorite Boyz II Men tracks up to this point in their career.
5. “Water Runs Dry”
This is not a typical R&B slow jam hit, it’s got more a “peaceful” vibe, whereas most of the laid back hits of this era go more for “chill”.
4. “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday”
What nostalgic person wouldn’t love a song with this title?
3. “Doin’ Just Fine”
I love a lot of the vocal runs and ad-libs in this song. It has a great melody and vibe, but it’s also a fabulous showcase the vocal prowess these guys possess.
2. “On Bended Knee”
For most of my life I considered this my favorite Boyz II Men song because I like beautiful and sad things, but it’s hard to argue with perfection…
1. “End of The Road”
And “End of The Road” is R&B perfection. The music, vocals, melodies…everything is just about as good as the genre gets.
Listen to My 5:
“I Sit Away”
“A Song For Mama”
“Please Don’t Go”
“I’ll Make Love To You”
