I've been on a wee bit of an R&B tip over the past couple of days, ever since today's track popped up on the iPod on the flight home on Thursday night. We're not talking maximum R&B here, no we're talking the US stuff which I know one friend thinks is all "utter pish" but there we go, no accounting for taste. So I have been digging deep in the cd cupboard because very little of this came out on vinyl, well vinyl that I would fork out for as who needs needs 6 versions of Heard It All Before or No Diggity. I would wait until the cd singles were in the quid bin in Woollies or if enough tracks that I liked were on one of whose cheap Now That's What I Call R&B Masters or something similar inevitably curated by Trevor Nelson popped up I would take a punt on it. There are quite a few of these cd's lurking in the cupboard, checking the track listings I reckon I know less than half of the tracks on most of the discs so they must have been cheap. There is one that has a track by "Amil feat. Beyonce of Destiny's Child", so there was a time when it had to be explained to people who she was which seems bizarre now. Oh and there is also one with a Sophie Ellis-Bextor song on that but I think we should just draw a veil over that right here and now. I hope that the efforts over the last couple have days have satiated my need for the next 10 years at least. But this is still a good song.
