So I had to explain to my 16 year old who New Edition was

Posted: September 26, 2014 by jmklee in Uncategorized

So my last post led to a conversation with my 16 year old daughter that led me to the history of the second greatest boy band of all time (the greatest is the Jackson 5) New Edition and the music that spun off of that group.  Now my fondest New Edition memories are of me riding in the hatch back part of Amy’s two seater while Missy was riding shotgun.  (Hey I was a freshman and I had two hotties driving me to school.)

Let’s start with a New Edition classic.

Now that led me to explain that Bobby Brown had a life before him killing Whitney and him being a fat reality TV star.

Then I had to show her how three of the guys also split away to bring us Poison from the post before.  She went on to say her Senior quote will be “Never trust a big butt and a smile” and well it should be.

Well that group didn’t stop there.  They unleashed this upon our lives.

and this

Now you had other solo projects from New Edition from Johnny Gill, Ralph Tresvant and Keith Sweat like this.

Now I don’t know if any of this was any good for the music world but I have a feeling that if it wasn’t for the guys of New Edition that many of our kids would not be around.
