Toni dominated much of the 90s with her love songs. I feel a lot of nostalgia when I hear one of her songs from this era.
Seven Whole Days
I love how blues-ey she sounds in this song: “What’s a girlllllll to doooooooo” They are so wrong in this video for showing the women tearing pages off the daily calendar and drawing X’s through the days, lol! They didn’t have to make them look that desperate. Although, Toni took the approach that I would take in a video if I was a musician. I would have other women lookin’ all sad and alone, I’ll be damned if I’m playing the lead role in my own music videos lookin’ a fool, lol! 90s video checklist includes close-cropped teased hair, soulful dancing (lmao @ the background singers and guitar player; they were feeling this song!), jeeps, and raw emotion.
Love Shoulda Brought You Home
Heaven help me if I ever got caught singing this song, lol. You can really get into it. Also, LMAOOOO @ the 4:04 mark.
How Could An Angel Break My Heart
This song/video used to make me so sad! I think it was because I was going through the after-math of a break-up at that time. I love the Kenny G. saxophone bridge: “Oh, my soul is…dyyyyyyyying, it’s cryyyyyyyyying…I’m tryyyyyyying, to unnnnnnnnnnderstand, please helllllllp meeeeeee“…just wonderful.
You’re Making Me High
This song is so fun. I love the blue background of the video.
Toni really had a bunch of great songs. My Honorable Mentions are: Breathe Again, Another Sad Love Song, Talking in His Sleep, In the Late of Night. What are your favorite Toni Braxton songs and/or videos?
