If you were a loyal Bad Boy fan in the 90’s, then you were like me and LOVED Total’s first release. It was literally one of those “Must Haves” in any cool kid’s discography.
That being said, of course your familiar with the “Whose is it” interlude where Keisha teaches Puffy how to eat Poonch. As provocative as the dialogue was, nothing gripped my attention on the entire album more than song playing in the background.
I was mesmerized by it. It was the perfect slow jam. It sounded like Total singing it so I listened to entire album hoping to hear it in its entirety. You’ll imagine my disappointment with not hearing the full song nowhere on the disc. I even let the CD play after it ended hoping maybe it was a hidden song. I have a friend named Angie, whom with the entire foundation of our friendship is based on our equal love of this interlude and our obsession with hearing the whole thing. (It’s been that deep)
This was well before the days of YouTube, Shazam, or even Google. Everything depended on the musical knowledge of your click and after years of asking anyone who ever brought up their mutual love of Total, I gave up my quest.
Until today….I got back on the case
On a beautiful March Saturday I found myself with nostalgia on YouTube and decided to take the chance. After reading the comments one person said it was Tevin Campbell’s “You Don’t Have to Worry” from his “Back to the World” album ( nowonder I never found it).
I feel like a void has been filled in my life. I know what some of you strugglers are gonna say ” I knew that”. Well I didn’t know, and this is a milestone in my life. I feel complete. Like this was a little nuggest from God saying “Life is gonna be good today”.
I’m getting my life right now, and its these little nuggets that help get us through The Struggle! Happy Saturday Tips!
