Leeloo.  Does anything say the 1990’s more than Leeloo?  Well, maybe Bruce Willis holding Leeloo but I couldn’t find a picture that was big enough for that.  So you have to deal with it for now.  And also you have to listen to Things that Make you Go Hmmmm by C & C Music Factory.  I guess many of you may not remember the ripped dude and the hot chick who lyp synched to the big fat chick who really did the singing.  I guess it was some big whoop at the time but I say who cares!  A show is a show.  And before you start saying I have a double standard, I don’t.  If Fat Albert or the fat guy from Blues Traveler had a hit song I would rather watch some handsome guy lip synch it then watch them.

I don’t know why they make such a big deal out of it.  It’s not a thing that would make me go: Hmmmm.  See what I did there?  Segue way!  This song is the best C+C Music Factory Song there is.  Gonna Make You Sweat has a better hook, but this is the best song.  It has too many verses and I think that rather than things that make you go hmmmm it is things that will make you knock the shit out of someone. Specially the one where the guy comes back with a tan.  Except why would you have an affair and let the girl you are banging buy you underwear and then bring said underwear home?  Than again, unless you are Tony Soprano you don’t have your own place to nail your mistress.  Well, no place with an underwear drawer anyway.

So after the jump, as usual, you’ll get the lyrics and video.  Please note the artful use of black and white and more black and more white and then some colors.  The director of this video later went on to be a cop cause he stunk at making videos.  Hmmmm.

C + C Music Factory – Things That Make You Go Hmmmm

I was at the crib, sittin’ by the fireplace
Drinkin’ cocoa on the bear skin rug
The door bell rang. Who could it be?
Thought to myself then started to shrug
Got to the door. Ding Dong. Who is it?
My girl’s best friend had payed me a visit.
Sly as can be, tight dress and all
She knew that I was faithful. I really didn’t have the gall.
I tried to chilll. She made the move.
Now I know my girlfriend wouldn’t approve.
I didn’t realize my girl was settin’ me up
Yo, my girl didn’t trust me. No!
Yeah, but she lost control I wouln’t take the bait.
I said chill baby baby chill baby baby wait
My girl bust in, Caught us creating a boom
She said “Girlfriend”?

Things that make you go hmm
Things that make you go hmm
Things that make you go hmm
Things that make you go hmm, hmm, hmm
Things that make you go hmm

Here’s how it started
Just an example of how another brother can trample
Ruin your life, sleep with your wife
Watch your behind
There was a friend of mine named Jay
Would come over late at night and say hey
I watched the fight. I thought is was alright.
‘Cause me and Jay were really really tight
So damned close we had the same blood type.
Months went by and my wife got big
We were havin’ a child and I got another gig
So I let Jay move into the crib and chill
He had his own room and helped pay the bills
The time had come (for the baby down to the scene)
It looked like Jay and I couldn’t believe
Before my eyes in the delivery room.

The things that make you go hmm
Things that make you go hmm
The things that make you go hmm, hmm, hmm
The things that make you go hmm
Things that make you go hmm
The things that make you go hmm.

Robbie Rob – break it down!

Give it to me Give it to me Give it to me Give it to me (x7)
Give it to me Give it to me

Seventeen and I was havin’ a ball
Eleventh grade and “Joe” I knew it all
I fell in love for the very first time
With this girl she really blew my mind
Inner sense and whole lotta class
Style that could give you whiplash
We said hello and my heart beat stopped
She was the world and I was on top
Time went by, She filled my universe
We made love, She said I was the first
My boy kept tellin’ me. Yo, I don’t know
I think your girl’s been playing tic tac toe
I’ll ask my girl I know she only loves me
Wasn’t I the one who took your viginity?
The look on her face read sorrow and gloom
She said “Yeah, Why do you guys always ask that?”

Things that make you go hmm
Things that make you go hmm
It’s the things that make you go hmm

(Repeat Chorus)

Hey ladies
Have you ever had a man
Go away for business, come back with a tan
Comes home late at night from work
You cooked him dinner now you feel like a jerk
Sayin’ he didn’t have time to eat
And he’s not even hungry, he wants to RETREAT
To the bedroom he said his head hurts
You’re only makin’ love in radical spurts
Mysterious calls and the phone goes click
You say to yourself “I’m gonna hit him with a brick”
Ain’t no way he could be cheatin’ on me
I wonder who bought him those BVD’s
Dressed to a T to hang with the fellas
Over the guys and I’m getting jealous
Comin’ home late smellin’ like perfume (fume)

(Repeat Chorus x7)

Things that make you go hmm
