I Think You’re Moving Too Fast

A bit of a change of pace and style for Friday but this is one of the best songs of 1990s and if you disagree you’re residing somewhere in the land of wrong. TLC’s 1994 song Waterfalls was released as a single in the UK on the day I got married (August 5th 1995) and was a smash around the world. Lyrically it is a cautionary tale of AIDs/HIV, promiscuity, contraception and the drugs trade. Sonically it is like being covered in treacle, golden harmonies from honeyed voices, a crisp kick drum and some bass.
