Lost ‘St Cloud Hits’ of the 90s: The Nightclub – 1990
If you were young and living in St Cloud in 1990, you might have been spending your weekend nights going to a nightclub (there were very few to choose from around here back in those days). But if you did go and do some booty-shakin' back in the day, there's a good chance it was to these songs. These songs should spark a memory. Not saying what kind, but a memory none the less.
Bell Biv DeVoe - "Poison"
New Edition spawned more successful careers post-boy band than any other boy band, and it's not even close. One of those successes was Michael Bivins, Ricky Bell, and Ronnie DeVoe, otherwise known as Bell Biv Devoe or BBD for short. They had three Top 10 hits, two of them were Top 5. One of those big hits was called "Poison," and at the clubs, it was a MASSIVE hit.
Black Box - "Everybody, Everybody"
You might know they had two big hits in 1990, "Everybody, Everybody" and "Strike It Up." But I bet you didn't know that they were an Italian group that had a Milli Vanilli type scandal. Their "singer" was actually lip-syncing Martha Wash's vocals (watch the video, that ain't Martha). They didn't win any Grammy's, so it wasn't as popular of a story, but Martha rightfully sued them, and it ended up affecting legislation on song crediting. Oh, they were also sued for copyright infringement for sampling songs.
2 In A Room - "Wiggle It"
This song hit #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart but #1 on the Dance Chart. If you were in the clubs or a house party that year, there is an excellent chance you wiggled it to this song. These guys are the only one-hit wonders on this list.
