Soundbyte!


Happy Monday!


I usually listen to music on my ipod using the shuffle option. This morning, this song came on and it was all i could do to stop myself from jumping in delight:

Sisqo - Thong Song

Remember this. Silly song, hot video, overplayed over a summer period. Oh and Sisqo - formerly of Dru Hill. This man/boy had so much energy. Remember the backflips and summersaults. And his hair. That platinum blond thing and didnt he have a piercing through his eyebrow? The sheer fun of this song. I remember a performance where all the girls in the thongs had glo in the dark stuff on and i dont know what kind of contact lens Sisqo had on, but they were scary. The success of this song alone made any releases by the other Dru Hill members seem irrelevant and a second album by Sisqo would have had so much to live up to.

Where on earth is Sisqo anyway?

Enjoy!

lol.. I remember it well.. you couldn't go anywhere without guys on the street singing thong thong thong thong...lol

One of the reasons I really liked Dru Hill was because they were business smart. They knew from jump that they didn't make much money from album sales.. so they toured extensively. The record industry doesn't a sniff of the tour money..

I also like their 'Somebody's sleeping in my bed' song.. and the remixed video.. they went somewhere many male artists don't go.

Sisqo was apparently really into producing and spent a lot of time in the studio.. it's quite ironic for me that you mentioned him, because I was surfing yesterday and came across a song he apparently made this year. Unfortunately, the style was just too boring for me to pay any attention to. :(

This Song Grew on Me!!!

I preferred "Got To Get It" but anytime I hear Thong Song, I just want to dance.

This was a fun song - I found it really silly but fun. I remember when my Dad watched the video, he was so fascinated with Sisqo's dyed hair - he called him a 'sprite of the forest'.
About Dru Hill, I will always love 'These are the Days' to bits, and I think the big guy (don't know his name) has a fantastic voice - hope he's still using it somewhere somehow.
Oh, and Sisqo did release an album after the first one, but it wasn't very good, IMO.
