Waterfalls

Happy TUNEBACK TUESDAY!! Today I’m tuning it back to 1995 with “Waterfalls” by TLC. Enjoy!!

ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE: May 29, 1995

TRIVIA: The background vocals are performed by the members of TLC, as well as Debra Killings and Cee-Lo Green.

The lyrics of the song reference 1990s issues such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic and violence associated with the illegal drug trade. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins said that it was important for the group to “get the message across without seeming like preaching.”

The video won four awards at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards: Video of the Year, Best Group Video, Best R&B Video, and the Viewer’s Choice Award.

See you next Tuesday!
