Music Video Monday: TLC
For today's Christmas song and music video, I decided on TLC's version of "Sleigh Ride." I love the way they put their cool sound on this modern classic Christmas song. My previous favourite version was sung by Debbie Gibson. However, since TLC first came on the music scene in 1992, I loved their sound and could never get enough of it. I consider them to be the best female singing group. My favourite of the group is Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, but I truly liked all three of them.
Unfortunately, after the death of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez a few years ago, TLC is history. Another African American female trio came out around the same time (SWV) but they couldn't come anywhere near TLC. I think its because TLC had a great sound and recognizeable style. I would've loved to hear an entire Christmas album, but all they gave us was this song. Enjoy.
