They may have been trying to make this their signature move, as you can see a very abbreviated version of it toward the start of the "Girl You Know It's True" video



At the time this was as cool as it was possible to get, in my eyes

i remember this exactly! i was in florida visiting my grandparents, this came on the tv, i was excited and said how cool they were, my grandmother immediately sniffed out their ruse! she said something to the effect of "how can they sing while running around with those big boots! they should be out of breath!" and i didn't believe her

each morning i make myself a smoothie for breakfast, and one of the ingredients is plain greek yogurt. once i gave my dog a little bit and he basically demands it each day now. so it's part of my routine, give him one little spoon of it. the thing is, after he finishes it, he lays down and mopes, he acts really depressed because the yogurt is all gone.

naturally, the melody from I'm Gonna Miss You arose in my head, and now I periodically sing
"it's
a
tragedy for me
to see
the 'gurt is all gone

and i never will forget
the day we met
'gurt, i'm gonna miss you"

i was 9 or 10 i think when i got the tape, and i remember thinking that the lyrics to All Or Nothing were a little naughty:


The game of love is to live it up
And baby not too high
Don't you know, if you wanna get down with Mister P
You gotta go and let your backbone slide
What feeling when you push it up, push it down
You gotta push it up, push it down. Feel good

George Michael or Marvin Gaye
It still is the same in you
Baby don't tease. Ooh, just please
'cause you know it's just me and you

All or nothing, push, it's got to be
Something's gotta show when you're livin' under heat
All or nothing, push, girl, let it be
Take it from the pro who's rockin' to the beat

I'm under heat oh baby, please take it slow
Give me some time and maybe, our love will grow
I want to suit you baby and make it right
Take it from me babe, I wanna rock all night

If it's good for me, it's good for you
You gotta never let your mood get dry
Just keep it wet and my seven forty jet
Is pushing right on high

George Michael or Marvin Gaye
It still is the same in you
Baby don't tease. Ooh, just please
'cause you know it's just me and you

All or nothing, push, it's got to be
Something's gotta show when you're livin' under heat
All or nothing, push, girl, let it be
Take it from the pro who's rockin' to the beat

I'm under heat oh baby, please take it slow
Give me some time and maybe, our love will grow
I want to suit you baby and make it right
Take it from me babe, I wanna rock all night

Push it up, push it down
Push it where it feels real good
On my lips my sweet bumble bee
Sting me like I knew you could

All or nothing, push, it's got to be
Something's gotta show when you're lyin' under me
Oh, oh, nothin' girl, let it be
Take it from the pro, who's rockin' to the beat

Now, they are a little before my time, but wasn't the issue that it wasn't actually them at all? I mean, the studio "enhancing" is one thing, but it was a completely different singer/s. I feel even today to be a completely different person singing is still a career killer, right?

Oh, I just noticed a few people comparing their style of vocal duping with what modern pop stars do. Not really a comparison to just lip syncing your own performance. These guys were flat out phonies and can't sing on their own. It's a tragic story, though. I watched all of their music videos, well, as much as I could stomach. They're solid dancers and drop dead sexy, but that was about the extent of their talents. Phony or not, this music is so terrible. I can't believe anyone thought this was good. lol

pretty people lip-syncing to less Hollywood-accepted great singers was the music industry's version of the political pedo ring in 90s dance music

DIDJA KNOW???

MV were two good-looking young black models hired specifically to mime to songs actually sung by middle-aged unattractive white men. They were awesome and their songs slapped and I agree with WhatColor about how unfair it all was, and especially sad considering what happened with Rob.

Around the same time, the iconic and influential Martha Wash (Two Tons O' Fun, The Weather Girls, Sylvester) recorded demos for the dance groups Black Box and C+C Music Factory. Wash, a fat woman, was replaced by skinny models in both groups' music videos. She won quite a few lawsuits for this.

This day and age, it's more common for artists to use "ghost vocals," where they leave some of the demo singer's original vocals on the final mix, for example:

- Jennifer Lopez has used ghost vocals of Ashanti, Christina Milian, Brandy and more
- Charli XCX wrote hits for Selena Gomez and Icona Pop and her ghost vocals are prominently featured on the final mixes
- My queen Britney Spears' Britney Jean album features her background singer, Myah Marie, on lead vocals on many of its tracks

false. it was 3 men, and each of them were black. i find each of them attractive, but that's of course subjective
